    This house was immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and extremely well equiped, all to a very high standard. With access to the merse (river bank) right outside the garden, it was perfect for exercising our dog in the morning, a good half hour walk to Glencaple each way, with lots of wildlife to spot along the way. The Nith hotel does excellent pub food which can be ordered as a takeaway too. We liked this place so much we booked another holiday there whilst we were staying there. Customer service from Sykes and the house caretaker have been exellent I can’t recommend highly enough. A perfect house in an incredibly beautiful, quiet location with lots to see and do nearby.

The property

Jocks Hoose is an idyllic end-terrace cottage in Glencaple and 3 miles from the market town of Dumfries on the foreshore of the River Nith.

This cottage is just as suitable for small families as it is for friends, its superb layout is ideal and its location with fantastic views near the town and access to some excellent pubs make it exceptional.

With magnificent views across the surrounding countryside and river, you won't want to leave.

Internally, there is a spacious living room with plush sofas and a cosy electric woodburner, making this room a relaxing and sociable place for the whole family.

Adjacent to the lounge is the kitchen, which has been fitted with high-quality wooden units and sleek black worktops.

The dining area has seating for up to six people and is the ideal place to sit and enjoy a home cooked meal together.

Upstairs, you will find two bedrooms, one king-size with a luxurious en-suite shower room, and one twin.

With the comfortable beds, you are guaranteed a good night's rest.

A lovely range of contemporary furniture and bedside tables with lamps for some late night reading.

There is a ground floor family bathroom with a choice of a bath and shower over.

To the outside, the property has access to a peaceful, secluded country cottage garden with a patio area and table and chairs.

Off-road parking is available.

Glencaple is in the parish of Caerlaverock with many nature walks around the parish and the river area including the parish Wetlands Trust bird sanctuary.

Locally, you can explore Dumfries Museum, which is the largest museum in the region, steeped in history.

It has extensive collections relating to the locals and details of the pre-historic era.

It also has the world's oldest working Camera Obscura.

Why not visit the Garden of Cosmic Speculation?

This 30-acre sculptured garden, created by landscape architect and theorist Charles Jencks offers a wonderful setting inspired by modern cosmology.

For a taste of history, venture towards Caerlaverock Castle, a moated triangular castle, which was first built in the 13th century and is classed as one of Scotland's great medieval castles, with an impressive twin-towered gatehouse and moat.

Jocks Hoose is ideal for a couple or small family to enjoy the village of Glencaple and explore the local area of Caerlaverock.
