Our cottage is near rivers, forests, Drumlanrig castle, great views, family-friendly activities, a wildlife conservation area & Moniave village. We are very dog friendly, as we have a large gated off area. You’ll love the cottage because of peace, tranquility, greenery, privacy, large garden, sound of the river, open fire places, super king size bed & Victorian bathtub. The cottage is great for couples, fishing parties, people attending events, furry friends and anyone just wanting to get away!
Our cottage is special for numerous reasons. It is a comfy, inviting and pretty building, settled outside a sleepy village. There are only a hundred residents spread out over 9 square miles, so we can see as many or as few people as we like. We are situated at the foot of a wildlife conservation forest with a beautiful, bubbling river passing only 100 feet behind the cottage, so is idyllic in many different ways.
Our super king size bed is probably our most luxurious feature. It is a Vi Spring Signatory. We were tickled to learn that apparently the Queen has the same bed!
Vi Spring have this to say about it:
"The Signatory Superb's blend of the finest natural fibers envelops the body in a delicate cocoon, creating a luxurious sensation of well-being. A sumptuous mattress that combines exceptional support, outstanding climate management and delicious softness, for an unforgettable night’s sleep."
The Vi spring coupled with the silent country side, well... it doesn't get much better.
The cottage itself has a spacious garden, surrounded by an enclosed 8 foot hedge, so we enjoy a great deal of privacy. It's a perfect setting to relax. The garden is secured all the way around, so children and pets can play in complete security. The neighborhood has no overhead lighting, so the view of the constellations is utterly spectacular!
We adore the cottage and are very happy to share it when we're not lucky enough to be here ourselves.

Cycling and Walking
If you like both of these activities you would be coming to an oasis. You can turn left or right from the front door and cycle on country lanes all day. As for walking we have been in the area for 10 years and are still finding new walks. More info available upon request.
There is an abundance of fishing in the area as we are very close to the River Nith. There are also many lakes for trout fishing and course fishing in the surrounding areas. There are ample research resources online although we do know that Drumlanrig Castle have several fishing options.
If this is your sport of choice then we know there is shooting activity in the surrounding areas and we have had shooting parties stay at the house in years gone by.

I was born in the city but the country is now in my soul! I like walking, fishing, cycling and cozy nights by an open fire. My wife and I are no strangers to this website as we run a very successful Airbnb in America. The cottage is our dream home. We are looking forward to the day when we live here in the meantime we are very happy to share our home with you.
