  • Enjoy cosy nights in front of the roaring wood burner after a day out exploring the local area
Property code: 79235

Brilliantly positioned for exploring both coast and countryside, this spacious abode is a wonderful base for holidays with family and friends. Just 9 miles from the historic Dumfries, visit the nearby castle and nature reserve and stock up on local produce to fill your cupboards. After long days walking, hiking and adventuring, the bubbling, private hot tub is a great welcome home and is perfect for relaxing in under the night sky. The warming wood burner is also an inviting sight after day outside and promises to get you feeling cosy right away. With brilliantly spacious rooms, enjoy lively evenings tucking into meals, playing board games and catching up with loved ones before indulging in a peaceful night’s sleep in one of four tranquil bedrooms which sleep eight guests between them.

With ample space for cooking, cosying up and dining in style, the open-plan living space is fantastic for all occasions. Filled with natural light and cool tones, keep your chosen cook entertained as they prepare a delicious feast for you in the spacious kitchen area. Plate up at the table and pop open a bottle before savouring each mouthful and toasting the chef. For an easy dinner and a sundowner evening in the garden, fire up the BBQ and sizzle up treats to enjoy on the patio before jumping in the hot tub for a relaxing soak. Or stay dry and spend nights snuggling up in the lounge with the wood burner roaring. With plenty of sofa space for everyone to put their feet up, gather here to discuss the day’s plans with a warming mug of tea in the mornings. For some peace and quiet, sidle into the snug and switch on the Smart TV. After adventures, step inside via the handy utility room where you can leave muddy, sandy boots and throw jackets straight in the washing machine before freshening up in the contemporary ground-floor family shower room. Four light bedrooms reside on the first floor (take care of sloping ceilings) and invite you to hit the pillow and drift off. The family bathroom offers a lovely space in which to enjoy a relaxing start to the day before making your way downstairs for breakfast. There is ample off-road parking.
