Property Description

Tucked away at the head of a small glen above the River Esk, surrounded by the Border Hills, this spacious holiday cottage stands within an acre of a mature wall garden. Furnished and equipped with convenience in mind, it also benefits from many character features. Ideally located to explore Dumfries and Galloway and Scotland’s Border country - a land of peace and tranquillity, steeped in history, with imposing castles, abbeys, stately mansions and dramatic ruins. Picturesque towns and villages are set in a landscape of rolling hills, wild 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 the museums, telling the unique story of the Borderland, and the workshops and galleries which produce traditional and contemporary designs in glass, textiles, pottery and precious metals. The cities of Edinburgh and Carlisle and cosmopolitan Glasgow are easily reached within an hour. Dumfries and Galloway boasts rugged coastlines and secluded beaches which benefit from the warmth of the passing Gulf Stream and is surrounded by breathtaking scenery, offering an ideal base from which to explore the Machars Peninsula and the Galloway Hills. There are many gardens to explore, including Logan Botanical Gardens, as well as the gardens at Alnwick Castle, Kailzie and Dawyck. There are also magnificent stately homes such as Abbotsford, Floors Castle, Mellerstain and Manderston. Walking is a delight - whether clifftop, beaches, hills, forest or even one of the towns close by. Mountain biking and walking routes, riding, fishing, bird watching are within easy reach.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The house is in a lovely quiet location, so is ideal for families and pets. The garden is huge and it was great to see so many birds and the occasional pheasant, in there. The accommodation was spacious and the furnishings comfortable. One area that could do with some improvement is storage space in the kitchen cabinets. Although there were plenty of them, nearly all were full - a "de clutter" would help as it leaves little space to store food stuffs. This is a very miner gripe though in what is otherwise a hard to fault property. Oct 2011.
  2. The cottage is excellent. Far better than is suggested by the pictures on the website. Finding the cottage is tricky - espececially as directions on website don’t have a starting point so you are never quite sure you are on the right road. June 2011.
  3. We needed 5 bedrooms with at least one double and one bathroom on the ground floor, due to my fathers illness. This was key to our booking. The property offered spacious accommodation with the kitchen and open plan dining room being our favourite, the hub of the house!! The garden is simply beautiful and so, so big. Not least, the location! If you seek a tranquil setting amongst hills and forests, look no further, it’s idyllic! Feb 2011.
  4. We like the whole set-up of the cottage. Oct 2010.
  5. The location was better than expected. Oct 2010.
  6. It was homely, peaceful, interesting. The walled garden was beautiful and great for sitting out in and for the dogs. The accommodation was excellent. We hope to return. July 2010.
  7. Lovely cottage, beautiful gardens, rural, quiet just what we needed. March 2010.
  8. This was a most wonderfully relaxing location. The cottage was well appointed and very close to many of our desired destinations. We had wanted to book this cottage since first we viewed it and we were not disappointed!! May 2009.
  9. It felt very homely, and was nice and clean on arrival. July 2009.
  10. Although it poured every day we snuggled up in the cosy kitchen and the dogs loved the enclosed garden, although the nearby Forest of Ae had excellent walks too. We had a delightful weekend. Nov 2008.
  11. The cottage is a really good size and perfect peace and quiet. Oct 2008.
  12. The cottage was very homely and we particularly liked the ’farmhouse’ feel of the kitchen. Oct 2007.
  13. Fantastic scenery, excellent area for walking. March 2007.
  14. A great chance to really get away from it all - an escape from the rat race! Great cottage in a beautiful setting in a beautiful and undiscovered part of Scotland. Oct 2006.
