The property

Dalbeattie 6 miles.

Part of a mill conversion in the popular Rocliffe area of Dalbeatie lies Burnside, an upside down house with a pleasant outlook onto the fields and beyond.

Perfect for families or friends, this retreat promises a heart-warming stay all-year-round, offering a spacious interior to elevate your holiday experience.

The ground floor features a charming kitchen, designed in a homely fashion with a dining table, well-suited for breakfast in the early hours, or a cosy meal in the evening.

After a lovely night in, you will be pleased to discover two twin rooms close by, wrapped in neutral décor; a soothing place to relax away from it all.

With a shower room on hand, guests can get ready at ease, ahead of another adventure-filled day.

Upstairs, there is a king-size bedroom attuned to the feel of the cottage with exposed beams towering above, bringing a characterful twist to the interior.

Not forgetting the delightful en-suite bathroom.

A key feature of this floor is the wonderful lounge which boasts a magnificent beamed vaulted ceiling, and an open fire to warm those cooler evenings.

Gather together for some family time, or simply unwind in front of the TV.

Appreciate the garden views from the lounge, or better yet wander outside to be at one with it all, while resting on the furniture with the sounds of the idyllic stream to keep you company.

The town sits within a wooded valley on the River Urr and provides access to the picturesque Solway Coast with its miles of beaches and pretty villages.

Today it is renowned for outdoor activities with the world famous 7stanes mountain biking complex nearby, as well as forest walks in Glentrool.

Panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Lake District and the Galloway Hills ensure a memorable getaway for all the family.

About the location

DALBEATTIE

Castle Douglas 6 miles; Kirkcudbright 13.5 miles; Dumfries 14 miles.

The attractive country town of Dalbeattie nestles in the south west of Scotland. The town sits within a wooded valley on the River Urr and provides access to the picturesque Solway Coast with its miles of beaches and pretty fishing villages. Dalbeattie is originally known for its granite quarry, which exported stone all over the world, most notably for the Eddystone Lighthouse and Thames Embankment. Today it is renowned for its outdoor activities with the world famous 7stanes mountain biking complex nearby as well as forest walks in Glentrool, where you can follow in the footsteps of Richard Hannay in The Thirty Nine Steps. Dalbeattie and the surrounding area offer panoramic views of the Solway Firth, the Lake District and the Galloway Hills. A great location, which has something for everyone.

    “Great location just a short walk to the shore and easily accessible to explore Dalbeattie and surrounding area.”

    On arrival the house wasn't cleaned to our expectations but this was quickly resolved after phoning Sykes, within an hour of our arrival the owner of the cleaning company came and thoroughly cleaned the aspects we weren't happy with. ...

    On arrival the house wasn't cleaned to our expectations but this was quickly resolved after phoning Sykes, within an hour of our arrival the owner of the cleaning company came and thoroughly cleaned the aspects we weren't happy with. The house itself was comfortable and warm, nice to have the open fire in the autumn evenings which we lit each night. Some chairs in the bedrooms would be useful for placing clothes. The kitchen was well knitted out with everything we needed. Lots of good information on local things to do which was useful. There was parking for one vehicle only outside the house but it was secure to park at the end of road. The owners manual mentioned parking available in their garage but this was full of stuff when we attempted this. It would be good to sort this for guests in the future as I imagine it would get more difficult parking in the busier times. Overall we would recommend this property.
