Warm and welcoming ex-farm-house dating from 1540, situated peacefully but conveniently 15 minutes north of Dumfries. One double and one twin bedroom, both with private facilities.Guests have exclusive use of a cosy sitting room. Full Scottish breakfasts served in the atmospheric dining room with wonderful views of the surrounding hills and well-frequented bird-feeder. Two new holiday cottages are across the court-yard, each sleeping up to four and offering glorious views from the patio area. Walks and cycling from the door and comfortable beds to relax and recover in. Only two miles from the excellent Auldgirth Inn, where the welcome is warm and the food delicious.
