Holiday Rental House
Shorepark is a three bedroom two bathroom cottage which sleeps six. Bedroom 1 and 2 have double beds,Bedroom 3 has two 2 single beds which can be turned into a super King if required The property has stunning views sitting just stones throw from the river Nith on the edge of Glencaple Village which has been designated a National Scenic Area. The old part of the cottage is complemented by a beaches type extension with picture post card views. One year on December 2016 - Well how things fly when you are enjoying yourself. It is a year since we first advertised our holiday cottage and a year next week since we received our first guests. We have welcomed all kinds of visitors for sporting events, work etc. but mostly people who just want to get away from it all and look out of the window. ...Shorepark is a three bedroom two bathroom cottage which sleeps six.
