The property

Settled on the outskirts of the rural village of Canonbie, amongst the River Esk, is this old farm cottage; Brockwoodlees Cottage.

Offering magnificent countryside scenery and an abundance of walking routes, this dwelling is perfect for a small family or two couples to explore the south of Scotland.

Inside you will find everything you need for your self-catered stay; begin your stay in the sitting room, where you can unwind on the sofa in the warmth with a cup of tea in hand amongst the traditional tartan walls whilst formulating a plan of action for the remainder of your fun-filled trip.

To the back of the property is a modest kitchen/diner, home to a good range of appliances, here you can prepare packed lunches to be enjoyed amongst the River Esk for an afternoon of fishing, or prepare heart-warming meals here together for a cosy evening indoors.

As night falls, retreat to one of the two bedrooms choosing from a double or a twin; both of the bedrooms hold a homely feel, providing the perfect space to catch up on your rest before your next action-packed adventure.

In the mornings, take your coffee into the garden to enjoy the countryside views; with sheep to the front and horses to the back, there’s plenty of excitement to uncover in the immediate area; from nature spotting to wondrous walking routes, there’s something for every type of adventure seeker.

For a day out slightly further afield, venture into the Kielder Forest Park, with its opportunities for exploring, stargazing and water sports, it provides an unforgettable day out for all.

In reach of Carlisle and Dumfries, Brockwoodlees Cottage makes a delightful base for exploring some of the best natural sights in the UK.

About the location


Gretna 8 miles.

The historic village of Canonbie lies just over the border into Scotland, close to the town of Gretna. Canonbie lies on the River Esk, renowned for its salmon and sea trout fishing, and is celebrated in Walter Scott's poem Marmion, chronicling the exploits of young Lochinvar. This is the heart of The Debatable Lands, the large area of border country that was once controlled by neither the Scots or English, and was a popular refuge for outlaws. The area offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with attractive coastal landscapes, rural walking and fishing.

Please note: Bookings are from Saturday - Saturday or Monday - Friday.
