The property

Annan 6.9 miles.

Smithy House is a detached cottage sitting along the main road in the village of Carrutherstown, Dumfries and Galloway.

Formerly a blacksmith and post office, this property dates back to 1816, now offering a well-appointed holiday home for families and their canine companions.

After a day of exploring the Scottish coastline, relax in the lounge beside the woodburning stove, flicking on the Smart TV and searching for a favourite film.

Linger in the contemporary kitchen and admire the skylight and integrated appliances.

Cook up a storm on the centre island before heading into the dining room to enjoy your culinary masterpiece.

Here you can admire the flooring and traditional beams, each one carrying the story of the past, which is further enhanced by the Scottish theme decor.

Continue on to the utility, where you will find a dishwasher and washing machine to help you keep on top of the housekeeping.

Four bedrooms offer a great night’s sleep, including a super-king-size with zip/link beds and two king-size bedrooms.

The family room is made up of three singles and is the perfect spot for little ones to relax after a day of adventures.

Freshen up in either the bathroom or shower room, providing choice of freestanding bath or walk-in showers, before heading outside and enjoy a morning coffee within the garden space.

Why not return here in the evening and enjoy a lazy soak in the hot tub?

Should you fancy a meal or evening tipple, make your way to Hetland Hall Hotel, just a couple of miles away, or head into the town of Annan, where you can sample local whisky at the Annandale Distillery or wander the high street and explore a range of locally run shops.

In the other direction lies Dumfries, the largest town in Dumfries and Galloway, resting at the mouth of the River Nith as it opens into the Solway Firth.

The town is home to a number of tourist attractions, including galleries, a local museum, the Devorgilla Bridge, and the poet Robert Burns' former residence, plus there are number of shops, including a sweet shop and a farmer's market where you can buy fresh vegetables.

Choose Smithy House for your next escape to this area of Scotland.

About the location


Dumfries 15.7 miles; Carlisle 20 miles

The town of Annan, a former harbour, lies on the banks of the River Annan, in East Dumfries and Galloway, and is steeped in history, with the area once the site of Roman camps and the workplace of the writer Thomas Carlyle. Each year, the town celebrates the Riding of the Marches, in honour of the Royal Charter bestowed by King James V, which involves parades, massed pipe bands and competitions. The area around Annan has many small towns, picture postcard villages and hamlets, plus beautiful unspoilt coastline, with sandy beaches and hidden coves. Visit nearby Caerlaverock Castle, one of Scotland's finest ruined castles or Annandale Distillery. Take a day trip and marvel at the majestic architecture of the grand abbeys of Melrose and Jedburgh or visit the northern Lake District and the historic Hadrian’s Wall. Annan is an ideal base for exploring this lovely area.
