Enjoy the good life at this idyllic smallholding bothy as sheep, pigs, and inquisitive chickens roam by. Set in a quiet rural location, there’s plenty of outdoor activities on your doorstep, from walking and fishing to challenging cycle routes. Ideal for sporty couples and two faithful hounds, the Solway Firth (13 miles) also beckons with 200 miles of spectacular coastline to explore. There’s ample off-road parking in front of the single-storey property, convenience shops and cafes nearby (3 miles), a pub (7 miles), and town shopping with restaurants and leisure activities (8 miles).

From the farm courtyard, head through the hallway to your spacious open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, decorated in traditional country style. Curl up with your best pals in the lounge on chilly evenings with the comforts of the wood burner, TV and home-cooked food from the contemporary kitchen. There’s a king-size bedroom (a paw-free zone) with plentiful storage, plus a shower room. Venturing outside, the private and enclosed bubbly hot tub awaits, perfect for weary hiking limbs and a seating area for patient pups and al fresco dining.

Wonderful walking routes for humans and four-legged friends can be found along the Annandale Way (4.5 miles), while Kinnel Water is close to your doorstep half a mile away, for a spot of fishing, boating and kayaking. Spot wildlife, amble along riverside trails and take on the 7stanes mountain bike challenge in the Ae Forest (10.5 miles) - the rock sculptures and spectacular vantage points make it worthwhile. The pretty market town of Moffat (8 miles), is also in easy reach. Further afield, attractions include the literary home of Scotland’s finest bard Robert Burns (14 miles), and Drumlanrig Castle (24 miles) where pups on leads are welcome in the stableyard and outside the tearoom – the perfect treat time for all the family.

The Bothy and the hosts were really lovely. The cottage is spotless, well equipped, comfy bed, beautiful view, and large hot tub. What more could you ask for. One of our wee dogs had just had a cruciate leg repair and so we could only do 5 min walks, but we still managed short walks around the large and beautiful and well kept grounds.

We have enjoyed many hot breaks over the years but this is the 1st time we've returned to one and we will be back. It was our home from home, comfy, cosy, peaceful & quiet. It's handy for exploring the surrounding area too with shops, places to eat, points of interest, etc. The hot tub is sheltered private & well placed for star gazing (if the clouRead moreds allow). The owners are lovely & on hand if you need anything but otherwise do not intrude on your break. We look forward to our next break. Hide

This is a lovely comfortable property. The bed is one of the most comfortable Ive ever slept in; excellent heating and reclining sofa. Its a very rural area which means lovely open landscape and pretty views, but no pubs/restaurants/shops nearby (not much effort to go to Moffat for those). We visited in March and were disappointed that many local bRead moreuildings/spaces we hoped to visit were closed. Autumn/winter stays will need to be for outdoor activities or relaxation rather than visiting. Hide
