“Fantastic long weekend”

Accommodation spotless with so many great little touches. Joanne had thought about everything, and more. Our two year old daughter loved the cottage, loved the dogs, loved the cows. If you want a relaxing, fun holiday on a working dairy farm combined with luxury accommodation then this is for you. Martin kindly showed us round the farm which was fascinating. Nothing was too much trouble. Joanne even posted our baby monitor to us after I managed to leave it behind. There are two cottages on site which was great for us because we stayed in the Old Bothy and friends stayed in the Grainstore. We would definitely recommend.

We have just returned from our second stay at The Old Bothy and again cannot fault the accommodation. The barn is very well equipped,spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The owners cannot do enough to make your stay a memorable one and the little extra touches add to the experience. Our boys aged 11 and 9 loved helping with feeding the calves as well as exploring the farm and it's surrounding fields. We would recommend this without hesitation.

We had a fantastic week staying in the Old Bothy. The facilities were excellent and our kids loved playing with the owners' dogs around the farm. It was lovely to relax in such a well appointed cottage, done up to a modern standard but with some charming features as well. Being greeted with freshly baked bread and scones and with an optional tour around the farm, it was more than just a holiday cottage. We all had a lovely time.

Lovely barn conversion. A little bit of luxury. Stayed warm and cosy with minimal effort from the eco-efficient heaters (despite the winter cold outside). Owners very welcoming. Probably the best holiday cottage I've stayed in. Can't fault it. Will go again.

What a wonderful conversion, extremely we'll equipped and spotless. We arrived early evening to a warm welcome, the wood burner was lit and a welcome basket left. From collecting the keys to returning them we had a great weekend at the Old Bothy. The views both day and night are stunning and it's so peaceful and relaxing.
A perfect retreat, will definitely visit again.

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at this gorgeous cottage. We had a very warm welcome from Joanne who greeted us with a welcome pack of home produce and had actually lit a fire so the cottage was warm and welcoming. The cottage was spacious and immaculately clean, the furniture and kitchen appliances were of a high standard and the furnishings were of good quality. The owners were always ready to offer help and assistance. The cottage is an ideal location for the lakes, Gretna, Carlisle etc. We would definitely recommend this cottage for the perfect getaway, even if the weather is bad there is a lovely log burner, a TV downstairs and in both bedrooms and free Wi-Fi.

We had a super time at the 'Old Bothy'. The accommodation was excellent and very clean. Some lovely touches with the home baked welcome pack and free Wifi which reflects the care and extra attention by the Baird family. Be sure to take advantage of the offer to feed the calves with Will, our son loved it. Martin also offered a tour of the farm and surrounding ground which we greatly appreciated, a highlight of our holiday. His passion for conservation and interest in wildlife is infectious. We look forward to returning soon ! A+ recommended
