About this property

Situated in a delightful location with its own fully enclosed gardens with a tumbling burn just beyond the house. The cottage is graded 4 star by Visit Scotland.

Inside the traditional cottage provides a fresh modern space which retains all of the cottage's original character. The cosy sitting room has a lovely open fire making it a perfect place to relax after exploring the local countryside. The property has recently had a Nature-Cam installed in the garden with some fantastic results, including photos of a resident badger and fox. See our photos for the proof!

Set on an award winning farm in the beautiful Dumfriesshire countryside, the location is renowned for its abundance of birds and wildlife which can be enjoyed from marked footpaths around the 310 acres of farm and woodland. Slightly further afield are the Eskrigg Nature Reserve where red squirrels, kingfishers and tawny owl are regularly sited, and Caerlaverock Wetland Centre, recently featured on Autumn Watch. The farm itself, which features an adventure playground and opportunities to "meet and greet" the resident animals, is a fantastic place for children to truly experience the Great Outdoors. All made even better with the sandy beaches of the Solway Firth and Mabie Forest Farm within a 30 minute drive, there's plenty to tire them out, promising a relaxing evening for adults!

The location is excellent for exploring South West Scotland's fascinating history with many Castles and historic sites to explore and wonder at tales of daring do from the past. Castles not to miss include Hoddom and Caerlaverock Castles which are both near to the cottages. The latter is managed by Historic Scotland and used for many public events such as battle re-enactments throughout the year; during the winter it is also worth visiting the next door Wild fowl and Wetlands reserve to see the 10's of thousands over wintering geese and swans - a site not to be missed.

One of the summer highlights in the area through the summer is 'Riding of the Marches' festivals with events in Annan, Lockerbie, Moffat, Langholm and Dumfries all of which end with cavalry charges by the participants thorough the respective towns - something that should not be missed.
