The property

New Abbey 4.5 miles.

A romantic retreat awaits you and your partner at Old Kiln Cottage, an intimate holiday home enveloped by tranquil farmlands and sitting in 11 acres of scenic woodlands.

A large sweeping driveway brings you to the front of a lovely stone bungalow, situated next to the owner's house with a lovely large lawn, benefiting from your own private patio where you can relax on the outdoor seating to delight in a morning coffee made from the complimentary coffee maker, among fresh country air and scenic views.

After a long day of exploring, settle down into the open-plan living space, a stylish room with gorgeous wooden floors and bright bay window looking out to the front.

Prepare a delicious meal for two in the kitchen, equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher.

Open a bottle of red and dine on the intimate dining table, resting in front of the large bay window, enjoying each other's company before making your way over to the lounge area.

Decide on a film as you cuddle up on the couch on a cold winter's night, letting the woodburning stove create a toasty ambiance.

Retire to the charming king-size bedroom after a fun-filled day, featuring pretty decór, and bedside lamps for getting stuck into a book first thing in the morning.

A large walk-in shower awaits you for a refreshing rinse, offering spectacular views of the far-reaching coastline, a welcome landscape for a fresh wake up call.

This delightful cottage is buried in the surrounding verdant fields of Kirkbean village, a quaint corner of far-reaching fields, rich farmlands, and views of rolling mountains, with a rustic country pub, The Steamboat Inn not too far away.

New Abbey is just a short drive away where you can browse the local shop to pick up any essentials you might need for a self-catered trip away.

Enjoy a day of adventure at Criffel Hill, a fantastic spot for hikers and ramblers at 569m tall, reaching the top will be worth it for the breathtaking views of the Nith Estuary.

Explore RSPB Mersehead nature reserve for an exciting day of running around the rugged wetlands and saltmarshes, or spot rare lapwings and skylarks as you bird-watch during the enchanting springtime, or discover the town of Dalbattie, home to a scenic woodland valley among the beautiful Urr water, a place where you can cycle through the lovely Plantain Loch area.

In reach is the bustling market town of Dumfries, stroll round the town and take in the delightful scenery, dine out in one of the riverside restaurants, soak in the local culture at the Dumfries Museum and the Robert Burns House, before spending an exciting afternoon at Dalscone Farm Fun theme park.

Old Kiln Cottage is the perfect base for a quiet escape with your other half, with easy access to gorgeous attractions for nature lovers.

About the location


Dumfries 5 miles.

The quiet village of New Abbey is dominated by the peak of Criffel, which at 570 metres, offers excellent walking and superb views over south western Scotland and the Lake District. The history of the village is represented in Sweetheart Abbey, a Cistercian abbey dating from 1273. A watermill makes an attractive backdrop for the village which has a shop, a coffee shop and two hotels. The River Nith runs nearby and offers excellent fishing. Dumfries lies 8 miles to the north. A market town and former royal burgh, Dumfries, nicknamed Queen of the South, dates from Roman times and is split into two by the River Nith running into the Solway Firth. With its many restaurants, bars, cafes and museums, as well as walking, biking and fishing in the nearby Galloway Hills and forests, there is something for everyone in this beautiful area of south west Scotland.
