    Miss Duncan

    “Lovely cottage in a great location.”

    Very clean and well equipped with a generous welcome package. Beautiful garden with the bonus of a stream running through the end of it and my dog was delighted with all of that. The conservatory was the way we came in and out of the property which kept all our mess of shoes and coats and dog towels out of the way but it was also a lovely place to sit, dine, and watch the many birds in the garden. Peaceful place, despite proximity of the A75 and the closeness of Dumfries. Highly recommended.

The property

Torthorwald 3 miles.

A stone-built, detached cottage on a sloping hillside close to the villages of Torthorwald and Collin, 4 miles from Dumfries.

A mixture of the traditional and modern, this Dumfries cottage has been renovated to give a traditional cottage feel, with modern touches such as an inset gas fire making attractive additions to the accommodation.

There is a substantial garden to the rear of this Dumfries cottage, with a mixture of lawn and woodland with open views onto surrounding farmland.

There is not only a pond in the garden, but also a stream running through it, making it a lovely spot on a summer's afternoon.

A quality property, this Dumfries cottage has been well equipped and decorated with charm and style.

It also benefits from a ramp at the rear and a specially designed bathroom with handrails, ensuring less mobile guests can enjoy their stay here.

There is excellent walking from the doorstep, Glasgow is just an hour's drive away and there is also easy access to the northern part of the Lake District and the magnificent Hadrian's Wall.

Cyclists will enjoy the highly acclaimed mountain bike trails, golfers are well catered for with 29 courses to choose from and there are ample opportunities for loch and river fishing.

About the location

TORTHORWALD

Dumfries 4 miles.

The historic village of Torthorwald can be traced to the 13th century and the ruins of Torthorwald Castle date from the 15th century. The village also contains a 19th century cruck-framed and thatched cottage, now restored and a listed building maintained by a local heritage association.The village has a hotel and a village hall. An annual Scarecrow Fun Day involves villagers erecting scarecrows in their front gardens. Only 4 miles away is Dumfries, known, like its football club, 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.
