  • Mrs Asprey-smith

    “Amazing property in a picturesque location, with Deer, red squirrels and some beautiful birds to keep us company.”

    Due to the increasing worry of covid we spent the whole week here just relaxing and exploring the surrounding wood and land with our GSD, instead of our planned trips out to explore further a field in Scotland using this as a base. As soon as we arrived we knew we would be back again, our car never moved the whole week and we never got bored once, its definitely a once visited never forgotten kind of place.

Dumfries 12.7 miles.

Tucked away in the peaceful green countryside some 12 miles from Dumfries, is Glen View.

This detached cottage sits in the middle of a 100 acre forest with wild deer, you can even catch glimpses of these majestic animals coming to drink from the pond within the grounds.

With spacious rooms and lovely stone features, there is a real sense of character throughout this charming abode, the ideal spot to bring your family and friends for a relaxing holiday.

Step into the open-plan living room and get cosy by the woodburning stove on a cool winter's night.

Find a quiet spot to get your teeth into a good book or get competitive over a board game with the whole family around the coffee table.

Rustle up something delicious in the fully-equipped kitchen, home-cooked meals can be enjoyed over a bottle of wine around the dining table before you unwind into your evening.

The ground level is complete with a king-size double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a family bathroom for you to either relax in the tub after a long walks or enjoy a rejuvenating shower each morning.

Climb the stairs to the second king-size double bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe and overlooks the unfenced pond within the grounds, where red squirrels and deer can be spotted.

You can walk straight from the extensive gardens that surround the property, up the hills and into the forest for an adventure with the kids and your four-legged friends.

You are in a beautiful countryside location, however the market town of Dumfires is within easy reach by car, where you have a wealth of shops full of holiday treats and plenty of places to grab a bite to eat and a drink.

You are inundated with walking and cycling trails all around, perfect for those who love to be outdoors and at one with nature.

The Galloway Hills are a must visit, each commanding exceptional views from the summit over the Galloway Forest Park and you can also discover Caerlaverock Castle just south of Dumfries, with one of Scotland’s great medieval fortresses.

About the location

Known as the Queen of the South, Dumfries is a market town and former royal burgh and is the largest town in south west Scotland. It lies close to the mouth of the River Nith as it opens into the Solway Firth. Its origins are mysterious and are believed to involve at various times the ancient Romans, St Ninian and there is evidence of King Arthur having fought battles in the area. It is also held that Malcolm Canmore and William the Conqueror met here in the 11th century and William Wallace pursued the English through the surrounding Nith valley 200 years later. Robert the Bruce killed his rival John Comyn in the Greyfriars Kirk in Dumfries and Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed in the town for a few days in the mid 18th century and the poet Robert Burns moved to Dumfries in 1791 and staying until his death five years later. Today Dumfries is a bustling popular town with much to offer the visitor. Its location makes it ideal for exploring the coastline with its sandy beaches and rocky inlets to the Galloway Hills and Ae forest offering superb walking and cycling on the famous 7 stanes trails. Visit stunning Caerlaverock Castle and Nature Reserve or indulge in some high octane excitement with the Scottish Rally based in Dumfries each summer.

Note: No stag/hen or similar parties.
