    “Mr”

    We had the most fabulous stay at Waulkmill. The accommodation itself was cosy and spacious. It had everything we needed and we were even left a lovely welcome pack containing things like homemade bread, mince pies, milk, butter, eggs, coffee & tea. The owners were lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful, they were very laid back which put us at ease and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our time there. We used the cottage as a base to go exploring in the day, the countryside surrounding it is ...

    We had the most fabulous stay at Waulkmill. The accommodation itself was cosy and spacious.

The owners were lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful, they were very laid back which put us at ease and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our time there. We used the cottage as a base to go exploring in the day, the countryside surrounding it is beautiful and Langholm, the nearest town (15 mins drive) has most things you would need. It’s the perfect place to stay for a quiet break away, the log fire was absolutely wonderful, we had to fight with our dogs to sit in front of it though! There are no shops, restaurants or pubs in walking distance but with proper planning we didn’t find this a problem at all. There is a fantastic butchers in Langholm where we bought the most amazing steak pie & even tried some haggis. We had the best break at Waulkmill and would definitely recommend it without hesitation!

The property

This semi-detached cottage rests alongside the owner's house, beside the river, and only six miles from the burgh of Langholm.

Originally a water mill, this stone-built retreat has been renovated to a heart-warming standard, creating the perfect countryside getaway for couples, whatever the time of year.

Take a moment to appreciate the idyllic location, then step into the cottage, where you will arrive at the sun room equipped with art materials and an easel, which continues through to a well-equipped kitchen.

Boasting the perfect blend of modernised charm, you will feel right at home whilst dishing up those home cooked meals.

Downlighters overlook the layout, and views of the garden create a pleasant backdrop to accompany a peaceful afternoon.

The open-plan living area is really something special, a characterful base tied together with a sumptuous sofa, and a dining table for four people.

Stonework and exposed beam cathedral ceiling bring an enchanting feel to the interior; so for a cosy evening, settle down with the woodburning stove ablaze and take it all in.

Follow the tasteful spiral staircase up to the magnificent mezzanine bedroom, featuring Velux windows which you can open up to hear the calming sounds of the river flowing nearby.

A separate dressing area and an en-suite with a spa bath, all add to the wow factor of this cosy set-up.

Open fields grace the outside, ideal to take a stroll at your own leisure, or let the dog run around in the enclosed garden, whilst you relax on the seating area of your choice.

The town hosts festivals for music, food and arts and the annual Common Riding draws many visitors.

There is also a 9 hole golf course in Langholm and Buccleuch theatre close by.

Within easy reach lies Lockerbie, home to a good selection of bars and shopping facilities, as well as a jazz festival.

A short drive from Langholm in the River Esk Valley is the Kagyu Samye Ling, the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre established in the West.

A one-of-a-kind cottage for you and your loved one.

About the location

LANGHOLM

Lockerbie 18 miles; Carlisle 19 miles; Hawick 23 miles.

Langholm is a burgh on the River Esk in Dumfries and Galloway. From Mesolithic Man 9000 years ago, through Roman occupation to the notorious Border Reivers around the 16th century, Langholm has much history to share. The town developed around the textile industry, achieving a worldwide reputation for its woollens, expanding its population and earning the nickname of the ‘Muckle Toon’, or the Large Town. Langholm is also famous as the birthplace of Hugh MacDiarmid, the poet and Thomas Telford who was born just outside the town and after whom a road in the town is named. An unused Episcopalian church was converted into the Armstrong clan museum and was visited by astronaut Neil Armstrong in 1972 when he was made a freeman of the burgh. The town also hosts festivals for music, food and arts and the annual Common Riding draws many visitors. Within easy reach is Lockerbie, home to a good selection of bars and shopping facilities, as well as a jazz festival. A short drive from Langholm in the River Esk Valley is the Kagyu Samye Ling, the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre established in the West. As well as offering residential retreats, day visitors are welcome all year round to explore the temple or relax in the peace gardens and grounds.
