COVID-19 Update

We are a small, dedicated team who pride ourselves on our commitment to our customers and owners. We have worked hard to achieve Feefo Platinum standard for delivering exceptional customer and we will continue to try and adhere to this even during the current crisis. We are trying to be socially responsible & morally fair in discussions with our holiday-makers and cottage owners alike.

We will be contacting all our holiday-makers who are not able to take up their holiday due to the COVID19 restrictions to issue a voucher which will allow them to re-book an alternative date. This is being undertaken on a week by week basis rolling forward.  If you have a booking and have not been contacted yet then please be patient, please don’t contact us unless it is more than 7 days after your booked arrival date.

With thousands of bookings across 270 properties and their respective owners to liaise with, it’s a huge jigsaw for us to complete, particularly when we can’t be in the office due to the current restrictions. This does mean that we are not able to respond in our usual quick & efficient way.

Please be assured that we will be in touch as soon as possible and we are very grateful for your support and patience at this time

The cottage makes a cosy holiday base in the historic town of Thornhill which nestles at the foot of the Southern Uplands. The cottage is perfect for small groups or couples looking for a weekend break or longer family holiday.

Thornhill is a thriving town and bucks the current trend of shopping with a great selection of boutiques, pubs, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as butchers and a bakery whilst there is also a supermarket for more mundane fare. So after a hard day exploring you are spoilt for choice over where to end the day be it the relaxed setting of the cottage or enjoying the local hospitality in the town.

The local area and all Southern Scotland is famous for the scenery and wildlife that can be enjoyed. The cottage makes a central base from which to enjoy the wide open spaces of the Scottish Hills and the fabulous coast of the Solway Firth, with the chance to see red squirrels, deer, otters and many bird species with winter being a wonderful time to see the amazing numbers of wintering geese on the Solway Firth merse foreshore.

Outdoor activities available on the door step are many and varied including walks and cycle routes with tracks for all abilities, golf, fishing and riding.

The culture and history of Scotland can also be discovered and enjoyed at many local sites including Drumlanrig castle surrounded by beautiful gardens and famous art collection, Robert Burns’s farm at Ellisland, The highest village in Scotland at Wanlockhead with it’s sister village of Leadhills which is home of Scotland’s Lead mining museum. The area gives an unrivalled cross section of live from days gone by through the industrial revolution to modern life; however one thing that has not changed is the tranquil beauty that greets all who venture into Southern Scotland. The nearby village of Moniaive, a finalist in the 2018 Scottish Culture Awards is well worth a visit and hosts regular events including a Folk Festival, Comic Festival and Horse Show.
