  • "The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed (with the exception of a proper potato peeler!"

    ). The cottage was lovely and warm with plenty of hot water, and it was lovely that blankets were provided to cover the sofa if the dogs were used to being on the sofa at home. It was a wonderful place to spend Christmas.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was beautifully appointed for our stay, we arrived just on 4pm, I did have a slight problem with the key safe, but that was because of my nails."

    . on entering there was a slight musty odour, however this did not go into the rest of the property, the garden was a lovely feature and the dogs sniffed every inch of it... there was everything we needed for our stay, the bed was very comfortable, and lovely large room, with more than enough cupboard space, the lounge was spacious and furniture altho little dated and worn was comfortable and served its purpose, kitchen was well equipped, however only used it for breakfast, the heating system worked well, and believe me its was needed as very wet and windy and temperature dropped in late afternoon, there is a lovely pub The Farmers Inn approximately 1 mile away, in the summer I imagine it would be a lovely walk, however we took car as raining. All in all we had as lovely 3 night stay, and the dogs enjoyed themselves

  • "The cottage was homely, cozy and spotlessly clean."

    The village is peaceful, amazing at night to stand in the garden and look at the stars. We had hundreds of geese flying overhead, perfect for birdwatching and dogwalking. I would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "We had such a wonderful time."

    The location of our cottage was perfect. It provided a combination of peace and tranquillity alongside easy access to beautiful scenery. The locals we met, whilst dog walking, were friendly and engaging. The cottage itself was well equipped and had everything you could need, with a sunny garden. The bathroom offered a choice of a walk-in shower and a bath which was ideal, and the water pressure was great. The 2 bedrooms were both spacious and well equipped with coat hangers and a hairdryer. There was a roller blind as well as curtains in the bedrooms which gave us the option of darkening the rooms for a good nights sleep. The main bedroom could have easily accommodated a king size or even a super king sized bed, which would have been an added bonus, as we found the double bed was small and too firm (just our personal preference). All in all a great place to stay.

About the location


Annan 7 miles; Dumfries 10 miles.

The small village of Ruthwell is located between the towns of Annan and Dumfries on the Solway Firth in Dumfries and Galloway. The village was home to Dr. Henry Duncan who founded the world’s first commercial savings bank and the village is now home to the Savings Bank Museum. Just 7 miles away is the historic Royal Burgh of Annan which lies at the start of the Solway Coast Trail - a drive which takes you on quiet roads to a wealth of castles and abbeys of incredible beauty and interest. Once an important trading port, the town is made up of many traditional red stone buildings and boasts a rich history of ship building and fishing. Ten miles away from Ruthwell is Dumfries which is known as 'Queen of the South'. Founded as a Royal Burgh in 1186, the surrounding area contains many castles, abbeys and even a Tibetan Buddhist Centre. Many forests abound with excellent walking and cycling. Dumfries is also a good centre for touring the rest of the area - the spectacular triangular Caerlaverock Castle and its nature reserve; New Abbey and the Solway Coast - and a starting point for travelling west into the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright and the rest of Galloway.
