The cottage is a Visit Scotland 4 star graded property which provides spacious and comfortable accommodation featuring a charming sitting room with wood burning stove.
The garden, complete with a patio perfect for a morning coffee or evening refreshment, mature trees, lawn and flowerbeds is surrounded by walks leading directly into a small woodland. There is a charming BBQ hut, built in the style of an old shepherd's hut, with a wooden floor and curved roof, & enclosed on two sides. The BBQ is situated in the centre of the hut where you can cook and eat al fresco, sitting round a lovely BBQ watching the dark skies and listening to the complete silence. The BBQ hut is for the exclusive use of cottage guests.
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 area also offers superb opportunities for outdoor activities both along the Solway coast and also inland where there is a great variety of river walks through to the hilltops giving magnificent panoramas to enjoy. There are numerous golf courses with great variety ranging from sea shore courses at Powfoot and Southerness through to Hoddam Castle's pretty riverside course. The choice of other outdoor activities is almost endless and includes fishing, horse riding, water sports and mountain biking all of which are within easy reach.
