  • "The Coach House was an extremely comfortable, clean and well equipped."

    Graham and Helen were great hosts and were there to great us when we arrived and showed us where everything was. Lovely welcome basket with fresh eggs. Canonbie has some lovely local walks and the dogs loved their morning visits to the river Esk which was so handy to get to from the house. Ideally situated to explore the Scottish Borders, Reiver trails and venture down to the Lakes. There is a secure garden for the dogs next to the property. Would highly recommend.

  • "This was a lovely stay, a perfect getaway to such a special place."

    The location was perfect - quiet and peaceful. The hosts were fab, very helpful and friendly. They welcomed us and showed us around. They had provided a hamper with all the little bits you would need to start your stay happily, plus some extra treats that were a delightful touch. They were really kind to my son and asked if he would like to collect some eggs from the chickens - lovely, lovely people! We did some great walks from the coach house - the scenery was amazing and local people very friendly. Would love to come back if they would have us.

    Thanks Anna for your very kind review. We loved having you all here and would be delighted to see you again sometime. Kind regards, Helen and Graham Property Owner

  • "The property and hosts were fabulous."

    Some really beautiful little touches around the property. I enjoyed the farm eggs and the eco conscious products provided. I had dogs with me and there was provision of food bowls and dog treats. The location was a gateway to many wonderful walks. I even went to the Lake District one day. I cooked every night and found the kitchen to be substantial. For a walking holiday with a cosy peaceful place as our base it was perfect. The dogs were exhausted but very content.

    Thanks for the lovely review Jane. It was great to have you, your friend and the dogs here and we are so glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you again some time. Thanks for choosing to stay with us. Best wishes Helen and Graham Property Owner

  • "A beautiful cottage, scrupulously clean and comfy, it has everything you could need for a holiday cottage."

    Owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The gardens around the cottage are great for dogs and the bird population is huge, if you are a twitcher you are in heaven here. Locals are very friendly too and its only a short walk to the little post office/shop, a pub with a roaring fire but at the time no food, wrong season.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. We are very grateful to live in such a beautiful place and love sharing it with guests and their dogs. It was great to have you as our first guests on Sykes Cottages and we hope you will come again sometime. Helen and Graham Property Owner

About the location


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.
