This delightful apartment offers a charming space to return to after a day exploring the beautiful scenery in the area, simply climb the staircase from the front door and be greeted by the comforts of a well-appointed abode.

You have a nice spot in the sitting room to relax, with dual-aspect windows allowing lots of natural light in as you talk over the day’s events.

The Smart TV and WiFi will add to the comfort of your stay, as will the lovely kitchen, which comes with a dining area and ample appliances to cook up a tasty meal, and washing machine for your convenience too.

When the day draws to a close, enjoy a glass of wine, read a few pages of your book or even play a game of cards among friends, before retiring to one of the bedrooms for a good night’s rest.

There is a king-size room looking out to the church as well as a twin room to choose from, with the twin having the flexibility of being made a king size if required, both offering delightful sleeping spots.

To the exterior you will find on-street parking for a car, while the town has a myriad of free spaces to park in as well.

You can walk to the shops and to the pub for a pint or grab a bite to eat at one of the cafés, not forgetting to try some of the Moffat Toffee the town is famous for, if you have a sweet tooth!

The surrounding area is primed for walking and cycling, with the Southern Uplands offering miles of rolling hills and peaks to explore, along with several smaller lochs scattered nearby offering excellent fishing.

Wander around the Moffat Museum to get a feel of the town's history, or journey up to Wanlockhead to visit the Museum of Lead Mining here, before heading to the Leadhills and Wanlockhead Railway for a scenic trip on a vintage locomotive!

Enjoy a day exploring the town of Dumfries visiting the former home of Scotland's national poet, Robert Burns and taking a stroll along the River Nith, with other surrounding attractions including Dalscone Farm Fun and Dumfries & Galloway Aviation Museum.

Choose to explore the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, both just over an hour's drive away, where you will find more shops to browse, restaurants and bars, as well as Arthur’s Seat to climb in Edinburgh or the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow.

About the location

MOFFAT

Dumfries 21 miles

Nestling in the Annandale valley, Moffat developed in the 17th century from a village to a spa town where the sulphurous waters of the Moffat Well were held to have the power to heal and this led to an influx of visitors throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Many of the buildings in the town date from this period and the present Town Hall was originally developed as a Bath House. The original well can still be visited and is a 1.5 mile walk from the town into the surrounding countryside. In addition to its renown as a spa town, Moffat also grew in stature due to the wool trade and also its position as a stopping point on journeys between England and Scotland. Today the town is popular with tourists and not just because of the superb scenery affording many opportunities for great walking, cycling and fishing. Situated 50 miles from Glasgow and Edinburgh, Moffat is the ideal base for travelling to events in the cities. It has a range of attractions including the Moffat Museum, theatres, art galleries and a selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. Treat yourself to some famous Moffat Toffee and don’t miss the annual Moffat Gala in July and not forgetting the renowned Moffat Sheep Races in August!
