Luxurious steading located in an idyllic position on a 70-acre working sheep farm. With masses of space and an open-plan layout, it’s ideal for groups or big family getaways.

Whether simple enjoying the breathtaking views of the Moffat Water Valley; spotting the fantastic array of wildlife from the hares that hop through the courtyard to the foxes, badgers, deer, and squirrels that inhabit the surrounding woodlands; or tackling the walking and hiking routes from your doorstep, find peace and tranquillity in abundance at this stylish converted steading. Sleeping eight guests in four bedrooms, after a busy day out, return to relax amongst elegant and contemporary interiors before unwinding in the sauna.

The epitome of successful open-plan design, here there is plenty of space for everyone to comfortably meet up together and cosy corners to find a little seclusion when it is needed. Beautifully designed with a blend of patterns and textures throughout, large windows and various skylights allow light to flood in creating a sense of space and air. Discarding outdoor clothes in the hall, make your way to open-plan living space, the heart of the house. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow you to marvel at the beautiful surroundings from the comfort of the sofa. Light and bright during the day, the room takes on a cosy demeanor once the wood burner is lit, ideal for movie nights in. When teens and adults want their own space, the studio is the perfect place to unwind with a book. Start and end your days together with sociable meals around the dining table, and kids will love the extra TV and comfy chairs in the kitchen, the perfect break out space for their own movie nights. The utility room is a welcome addition for large parties with space for storing and drying outdoor gear as well as being perfect for a cosy dog bed or two. The elegant bedrooms are suitable for a variety of party make-ups, with the two super-king-size bedrooms able to be made into twin bedrooms and with each bedroom boasting an en-suite, careful consideration has been given to the privacy of mixed-age, family groups. End your day in the sauna, the perfect place to rest your walk weary limbs with a little TLC. Wake refreshed to take a morning stroll in the garden and surrounding woodland, sipping a coffee listening to the birdsong and the tumbling waterfalls that lead to Moffat Water. Watch your kids and pups play on the lawn to their hearts content as you dine alfresco morning, noon and night. As the BBQ sizzles and the sun sets, indulge in a lazy evening stargazing in this recognised International Dark Sky location. With secure bike storage available make sure you bring your bikes and there is ample off-road parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a wonderful week at the Steading. Fiona and Angus were very welcoming and always at hand to help when we needed it (supplied a jack when we needed to change a tyre). Lovely rooms with en-suites so perfect for four couples plus dog. Handy dog/ utility room with puppy gate and little extras like bone biscuits, bowls etc. Handy hose at the fronRead moret of the house to wash boots and mucky paws. The owners have thought of everything - comfy beds/linen and welcome hamper. We would definitely rebook! Hide

Fabulous home and can even get a Porsche 2 seater up the winding drive without any scrapes! Lots of bleating sheep & lambs and just stunning views out of every window.
