“Beautiful location and the accommodation a real home from home”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at White Gables in Kippford. My husband and I along with our 3 teenage children (19, 18 and 15) and our daughter's boyfriend had a very relaxing holiday with lots of coastal walks. The house is perfect; cosy and well equipped. The view from the terrace on a sunny day is wonderful and the badminton kept the kids amused. We saw red squirrels, rabbits and plenty of bird life in the garden. The Anchor pub does excellent food with a good pub atmosphere and a fun quiz on Thursday evening (only a 5 min walk from the house). The only shop in the village sells the most amazing local ice-cream. Kippford itself was a lovely surprise, picturesque and very peaceful with a really friendly, family atmosphere. We would love to visit again and stay at White Gables.

“Surrounded by nature”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This property is ideally located in one of the hidden gems of southern scotland. Kippford. The owners, great walkers and birders themselves have thought of everything to make the place fit for purpose. The kitchen is well equipped, the books and information excellent, the bedrooms cosy and warm but with windows that open onto great views. The sitting room is perfect for the rare rainy days when you can look towards distant hills or at the deer and pheasant in the garden. We would go back in a heartbeat.

“Lovely base for exploring Galloway”

We were at White Gables for a week in March, and wish it had been for a month! We had incredible walks, both locally from Kippford to Rockcliffe, along the water, and up on to The Muckle, and further afield in to the Galloway Hills. We watched the starlings over the water from the house in the early evening, against the backdrop of the hills and sky, until dark. The house was so private and quiet, and so cosy, and with 2 lovely pubs in the village we had no need to drive anywhere! We want to come back at all times of year to explore this beautiful area and to stay at White Gables, if we can, while we do this. Thank you for letting us share your wonderful home, which certainly feels like this and not just like a holiday let. It was magical.
