Flag Cottage is a cosy coastal cottage offering fabulous views over the Nith Estuary and the Solway Firth, all the way to the Lake District with easy access to Caresethorn beach and just a short walk to the fabulous gardens at Arbigland House.
The area surrounding the cottage is a haven for wildlife and sits on the migratory route of thousands of Svalbard Barnacle Geese who winter along the Solway. A 10 minute drive west takes you to RSPB Mersehead Reserve with its public bird hides and endless sandy beach, whilst 40 minutes in the opposite direction brings you to Caerlaverock Wildlfowl & Wetland Trust Reserve, a 1500-acre reserve including farmland, salt marsh and freshwater wetland habitats where filming for BBC 2 Winter Watch has taken place.
The cottage has a quiet and private location in Carsethorn village, which has a popular pub for eating out whilst waiting the changing colours over the Nith and Solway, Dumfries, the Capital of South West Scotland with its strong links to Robert the Bruce and also Rabbie Burns is only a 20 minute drive to Dumfries; for those who enjoy a faster pace of life, the whole region of Dumfries & Galloway is a great location for outdoor activities and excellent for getting a blast of fresh air to revitalise yourself!
