Part of a period farmhouse we have a newly appointed apartment available for holidays in our lovely area of Dumfries and Galloway. Dumfries and Galloway is a part of Southern Scotland often overlooked by those heading North to the Highlands. It retains it's slow old fashioned unchanged character and is a hub for arts and crafts aswell as having many wonderful beaches and excellent pubs and restaurants. Dogs are welcome if well behaved and kept on a lead around the garden.
“My boyfriend and I had a lovely weekend. It was very windy and rainy so the fire was welcome relief from the cold. We had a very cosy weekend. We ventured to Caerlaverock Castle and had a lovely few hours there and then back to the warmth of the fire, a whiskey or two and some nice food, cooked in the Agar All in all a lovely weekend. Martin had lots of information about the local area. We would visit again. Thank you.”
Welcome to our idyllic riverside cottage. Nestled in the picturesque Dumfries & Galloway countryside and set on the banks of Cairn Water. The area is rich with wildlife. Red squirrel, deer, kingfisher, woodpecker, red kite, buzzard and otter are just a few of the local visitors spotted from our garden. Stepford Station Cottage is the perfect cosy retreat for nature lovers. We welcome up to 2 well behaved dogs at no extra fee.
“Arrived to an easy check in, Kelly gives you all the information you'll need and the cottage is very easy to find. With a large easy access driveway and parking right beside the front door. One inside we were met with a couple of Scottish ales, shortbread and a concise welcome pack. We were keen to explore the property and soon found piles of games, dvds and CDs. There's Sky TV, a stereo and even a piano. The place was spotless and the decor is beautifully done throughout. We felt at home from the second we set foot inside. Located right beside the river, we found it so peaceful and loved watching the birds a listening to the wildlife. Coming home in the dark to the sounds of owls was fantastic. The bed is super comfortable and we both slept soundly each night. The heating is easy to control and the place is really cosy. We enjoyed the log fire each night and our only wish is that we had stayed longer, to enjoy it some more. All in all, an amazing home from home, beautiful location, peaceful and only a 10 minute drive into Dumfries Will definitely stay here again if we can.”
Stable Cottage is a Terraced house set in a row of brightly coloured homes. There is parking for one car although extra parking on pavement in front of house is not unusual.
“Kathy was excellent at communicating quickly and took a booking at short notice as we were looking for somewhere comfortable and clean to accommodate family travelling from abroad for a funeral . Kathy was very supportive and flexible and would regularly ensure that the fire was lit while we were out to make the home warm and cosy when returning at nights . Excellent host . Thank you Kathy .”
