    We thoroughly enjoyed our break - the cottage was really comfortable and relaxing - wood burner was excellent - local shops were good and Co-Op a 10 min walk away - one thing the owners should promote more is there outside patio area which was a real sun trap - even has an outside fire for when the sun went down

The property

Nestled in the bustling town of Langholm, in the Scottish countryside is this delightful semi-detached bungalow.

Ideally placed for accessing a number of local eateries for fine food and real Scottish ale, as well as a choice of independent shops and supermarkets for your amenities.

Internally, the property has been decorated to a high standard, with plenty of seating in the open-plan lounge for a relaxing evening with your loved ones, catching up with the day's events.

Gather around the dining table to enjoy your lovingly prepared home-cooked meals over a well-deserved glass of wine, cooked to perfection in the well-equipped kitchen, also providing a spot of luxury with the provided dishwasher and washing machine.

With the property all being on the ground floor, there are two bedrooms; a king-size and double, boasting a range of contemporary furniture to store your personal items.

Take a refreshing drink out to the rear patio garden, and simply enjoy the fresh countryside air, whilst watching the sunset.

Langholm has been described as 'The Beautiful Gateway to Scotland', and is set in the unspoilt countryside area with the Eskdale Prehistoric Trail within easy reach, travelling through many sites of interest.

Said to have been the birthplace of legendary poet Hugh McDiarmid, this town is famous for its annual Common Riding Festival.

Situated a stone's throw away from the River Esk, where you can get involved with some fishing, or riverside walks with picturesque views.

Parliament Cottage provides an exceptional retreat for two couples looking to escape to the countryside.

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.
