  • "Lovely quiet and peaceful stay and still close to major routes making sightseeing easy."

    Storm Kathleen tried her hardest to ruin things but in such a beautiful setting and comfy cottage, she failed miserably! The cottage had everything we required and the owners welcoming but not intrusive. The farm dogs were very cute including Coco, a bear of a dog. Thanks again.

    Many thanks Ruth. It was a pleasure to host you both. x Property Owner

The property

Lochmaben 2.6 miles.

Laird House is a superb, detached cottage surrounded by bountiful countryside on the outskirts of the little village of Lochmaben, Dumfries and Galloway.

Situated right next to the owner’s farm, there is a lovely horse paddock and wondrous landscape views.

This accommodation is suitable for family or friends and is wheelchair-friendly, with an open-plan living area, a larger shower room and ramps to assist for your convenience.

Enter through the conservatory where there is a selection of games to enjoy, not to mention a lovely seating area to relax as the sun slowly sweeps across the window into the evening.

The conservatory leads you through into a large open-plan living area which is beautifully laid out with contemporary furnishings including a breakfast bar, dining table and woodburning stove to add warmth to your stay.

The bedrooms are both very spacious, the super-king-size room having remote control Velux windows which draw in the glorious sunlight.

The garden has a lovely patio area with table and chairs and a sandpit with toys to keep the children fully occupied.

The quaint, little village of Lochmaben offers a range of pubs and restaurants and the beautiful Kirk Loch.

The wider region boasts a wealth of historic sites to visit as well as museums and galleries.

Dumfries and Galloway offer plenty of exciting activities such as mountain biking, windsurfing, and yachting, however, if you just want to absorb the charming, green landscape then there are lots of gentle walking routes.

Laird House has much to offer for a relaxing week in an idyllic rural setting.
