    About this property

    This traditional cottage is surrounded by outstanding countryside with views over towards the Solway Firth.
    This delightfully situated, detached, holiday cottage has been renovated to a very good standard and is located within the national scenic area. It stands within a secluded garden and enjoy a delightful patio area within the walled area of the garden. The cottage, which is near Caerlaverock Castle, adjoins the famous Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve and is only ¼ mile from the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and, just down the road is the Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve made famous by BBC’s ‘Autumnwatch’. The county town of Dumfries is a short drive away providing a wide range of shops and places of interest. It makes an ideal base for exploring this wonderful area either by car, cycle or on foot and the Mabie Forest mountain bike tracks are close by, whilst the scenic Caerlaverock Estate has a network of paths to enjoy on the doorstep. Close to excellent salmon fishing on the River Nith and wildfowling on the National Nature Reserve. There are several excellent golf courses in the area including the championship course at Southerness. There are wonderful views over the Solway Coast towards the Lake District. The garden is well stocked having roses, shrubs and mature trees. Visit one of the three tearooms within five miles.

    "The cottage was warm and well equipped and we loved watching the birds visiting the bird table. Very handy for the Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve and WWT Reserve. Great for bird watchers."

    "Overall a great place. The facilities are more than adequate,clean, comfortable and staying there was very relaxing. We plan another visit February 2019.( I will bring a selection of seals and fix the dripping shower head in the downstairs bathroom - if it still leaks.Myself and my Colleague have stayed in this area for years ( Birding and Photography ) at WWT, the most recent (2) visits have been at Hollins and S44401s.It would be good if a recycling bin for Tins,Plastic paper etc was available - perhaps it is cost prohibitive for the Council to collect, given the area and population !!"

    "Lovely cottage, from the outside you think its going to be small but how wrong you are when you step in. This cottage is lovely and well thought out. it's located down a farm lane and has amazing views. Close to the Wildlife & Wetlands Trust and to the Nature Reserve walk. The cottage could do with being painted inside as general wear & tear have taken their toll and travellers should be aware that although there are plates, crockery etc you need to take everything else for cooking i.e. tinfoil, clingfilm,rubbish sacks & need to take cleaning stuff as none are left for you to clean the cottage on you departure. We also had to buy lightbulbs for the livingroom lamps as none worked and no spares were left. The cottage was clean on our arrival but unfortunately the fire had not been cleaned out and the log basket only contained 4 logs which we assumed were left over from the previous tenant. That being said, we still enjoyed our visit and would go back."

    "Excellent!"

    "This cottage is ideally situated on NNR Caerlaverock, it is a short drive from the lovely towns of Dumfries, Gretna and Castle Douglas. It is a modern conversion with electric heating and a wood burning stove in the living room. The bedrooms are a great size, the kitchen has everything you need and the wi-fi worked well. We would recomend it to anyone who wants to relax in a peaceful location."

    "Cottage was beautiful and comfortable - would definitely stay again.I scored 9 for cleanliness as the day we left we noticed potatoes in the top of the kitchen cupboard (probably left by previous guests) we obviously took them out so that no nasties got in but considering they were pushed to the back don’t hold cleaners responsible for that 😊No hot water on the first day, but the owner was very helpful and available to contact ... Problem again lay with previous guests playing about with the timer. Sorted it and hot water was not a problem for the rest of our stay.Not much immediately around the cottage so you need to drive out but that was idyllic for us and it’s a great base to explore.Will look to stay again in the future, this time for a week!"
