    A very enjoyable week in a peaceful and quiet location with an abundance of birds and wildlife in the garden and the surrounding fields. The cottage was extremely clean and well equipped and we felt very warm and cosy despite the temperature outside around freezing for the first part of the week. We were more than happy to sit in the well positioned conservatory relaxing and watching the birds and red squirrels in the large garden and this was a real treat. As luck (or not!) would have it, we experienced two power cuts during the week, one pre-arranged for essential works (we chose that day for a trip to the local RSPB reserve at Mersehead) and another a couple of days later on our return to the cottage after a trip out. On contacting the owners, they couldn't have been more helpful in finding out information and keeping us speedily informed regarding the source of the problem, timescale etc., for which we were extremely grateful and felt very reassured. We didn't travel too far afield because we preferred not to, but it is a very convenient base for visiting the wider area should you so wish. A perfect get-away to recharge the batteries, highly recommended.

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.
