In a stunning location on the banks of the ’Water of Milk’ river, this traditional detached cottage is adjacent to the owner’s home ( a former watermill built in 1755) and is perfect for a relaxing holiday in beautiful countryside. The cottage has been fully modernised whilst retaining traditional features and is homely and comfortable, providing a lovely retreat for a couple or a small family - all rooms are on one level. There are flowering front gardens and to the rear, a small enclosed garden with seating and lovely river views.
The market town of Lockerbie is 2.5 miles away with a good selection of shops, pubs and... hotels. Visitors will enjoy quiet roads through beautiful countryside, Carlisle, Dumfries or Gretna, are all a short drive away. The Solway Coast is famous for its beaches and cliff top walks as well as inland forest, woodland and hill walking. Cycling here is amazing on quiet byways or the more adventurous ’7 Stanes’ mountain bike trails. This is also a golfer’s paradise and loch/river fishing is easily accessible.

A very pretty cottage in a lovely setting. Some aspects of the cottage could do with updating (kitchen and bathroom a bit basic), but overall was good value for money. You must also be prepared to drive for everyday items like your daily newspaper, as there are no shops in walking distance. Good location though for exploring the Scottish Borders and Dumfriesshire by car.

It was a lovely cottage with all the amenities and equiped with loads of games and toys for our child, lockabie was only a few miles away, although there wasn't much to do there so we travelled quite a bit.
Unfortunately when we went it was a terrible week of floods and rain "sods law", so as you can imagine very little country walks were possible which was a great shame, in fact because of the bad weather we had to cut our holiday short by one day, but that doesn't detract from the delightful cottage with open log fires and a wonderful stream just a few feet away. Also the coast was only 20 miles away or so and the beach was ok, very out of the way and secluded which was a definate plus point for our son.
