Property Description

Situated on the Scottish Borders, not far from Gretna, lies the mansion of Springkell with landscaped gardens. Built for the Maxwell family, proprietors of the Barony of Kirkconnel and Springkell since 1610, the original Georgian centre of the house was erected in 1730 and the house and stables were extended in 1830. These two holiday cottages (SQQY and SRRA), situated in the grounds of Springkell Estate, offer a peaceful retreat. Ideally located to explore Dumfries and Galloway and Scotland’s Border country, steeped in history, with castles, abbeys, stately mansions and dramatic ruins. Picturesque towns and villages are set in a landscape of rolling hills, moorland and meandering rivers. Ramble the moors and hills, discover the coastline, fish the rivers and lochans, ride the bridleways, play the fairways or take a mountain bike challenge. Visit museums, workshops and galleries. The cities of Edinburgh and Carlisle and cosmopolitan Glasgow are easily reached within an hour. Shops and pubs 1 to 4 miles.

Living room with wood-burning stove. Kitchen with tiled floor. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A stunning cottage in a stunning location, just the place to re-charge one’s batteries! March 2012.
  2. Beautiful cottage, more matches would’ve been helpful. Excellent facilities for children and babies. Would go back. Feb 2012.
  3. It was lovely, quiet and relaxing, out of the way but not remote. The property had everything we needed and nicely presented. It was fantastic to walk out of the cottage and onto the grounds of such a beautiful house and well kept estate, acres of space to walk with our dog. There is no internet or phone signal at the property but this just made it more appealling to us. Feb 2012.
  4. A delightful cottage with a very high standard of furnishings. Peaceful exclusive location on a country estate, yet only 5 mins from the motorway. Very well equipped and a stone’s throw from shopping at Gretna, tourist attractions, castles and the sea. We highly recommend a break at Kennel Cottage. Oct 2011.
  5. Good if you want a very quiet holiday. Not much to do in winter, however great countryside walks and views. Great to get away from it all. Enjoyed our stay and would go back and recommend to a friend. Oct 2011.
  6. An excellent property in a beautiful location - would like to visit again in the summertime. Sept 2011.
  7. Kennel Cottage is set in a beautiful location, miles from anywhere. Its really well appointed, clean and cosy. Great for kids and dogs as the nearest road is about one mile away. Would highly recommend the property. Aug 2011.
