Charming stylish barn conversion with private enclosed hot tub enjoying beautiful countryside views and wood burner perfect for cosy nights in. Within easy reach of local amenities.

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.

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

Step onto the Annandale Way straight from your front door and hike to the dramatic hollow of the Devil's Beef Tub, site of ancient clan gatherings and 13th century cattle rustling. Stroll along quiet roads and bridleways exploring the local countryside or head to the Moffat Hills for a ramble through the tranquil landscape. Further afield, make sure you pack your camera for a walk to the spectacular cascades of Grey Mare's Tail (16 miles) plunging 60 feet into the valley below.

Moffat (8.5 miles) is a historic market town with shops, restaurants and galleries galore. Discover the history of the town in the interesting Moffat Museum or spot dragonflies and butterflies as you stroll the ponds of Moffat Community Nature Reserve. Hire a swan boat to sail across the water at Station Park and make sure you try some famous Moffat toffee.

Hop in the saddle for an exhilarating ride through the Forest of Ae (10 miles) where you will find the 7stanes mountain bike trails. Hurtle down narrow trails with steep descents and big air jumps on the red and orange runs, or for a more sedate forest adventure there are green and blue trails suitable for all. If you prefer foot to pedal, then there are numerous waymarked trails through the towering trees leading to glorious vistas and tranquil rivers.

Fabulous cottage in a wonderful location. We were cosy and warm from the underfloor heating. Lots of great walks in the area and a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. A fantastic place to get away from it all.

Absolutely lovely from the time we got there till the time we left. Hot tub was always checked and ready for use, with robes and slippers plus towels. Everything we needed was at hand. Had lovely walkes. It was what we needed for a restful Christmas. Log burner was great and logs as many as we wanted. I would recommend this holiday to everyone.

Fantastic clean equipped property. Warm welcome with home made cakes - bake off should watch out ! If you want something a little more substantial than disposable slippers (really appreciated as did not think of taking anything ourselves) then take your own flip flops.

A fantastic cottage in a great location for exploring Dumfries and Galloway. Hosts were delightful and the cottage had everything we needed - and most importantly a very comfy bed! We had an excellent week and would definitely return.

Great holiday, even better cottage!!! The Bothy is amazing and was the perfect getaway for us and the dog. The welcome pack with cake and eggs (plus all the rest) was amazing and really helpful. We enjoyed the hot tub and the views are simply stunning. The cottage is lovely and has all you need to help switch off for a few days.
