Indulge yourself with a stay at this gorgeous wooden cabin, located on a working farm deep in the Clyde Valley, home to dramatic gorges and rich forests. It’s located on a bustling farm and offers an idyllic retreat for solo travellers or couples, with up to four of their canine companions. Holiday in style among the scenic landscapes of the Southern Uplands and when you’re tired after visiting local castles and rural spots, relax those worn-out limbs in your private hot tub.

Made entirely of wood, this charming den-like property has a rustic and unique feel to it. Its vaulted wooden ceilings create a cosy and homely atmosphere while the wonderful views of the sprawling fields help you relax into your break. Designed with dogs in mind, the cabin boasts cushioned, non-slip flooring for your four-legged friend's comfort.

The cabin's single-storey interior features an open-plan lounge and kitchen, which serves as the central hub of your sweet holiday home. In the well-appointed kitchen, whip up yummy breakfasts and dinners for two to enjoy at the dining table. The cosy sofa is perfect for enjoying a film on the Smart TV or reading a book after busy days exploring. A door from the living area takes you through to a king-size bedroom, which leads to a wet room with a spacious shower.

The outdoor space includes an enclosed area with artificial turf and seating, plus a private hot tub overlooking fields and woodlands. Yours is one of six cabins on the farm, surrounded by a large grassy area offering views of an unfenced pond that you're welcome to explore. On the farm, mingle with resident alpacas, goats and sheep, and get to know the owners' seven friendly dogs. You can also rent an indoor BBQ hut directly from the owners and there’s an off-lead exercise field where your pets can explore freely. The farm also hosts dog events and operates an on-site agility training school, so it’s all about the canines here!

The Clyde Valley Tourist Route, joinable 10 miles away in Lanark, takes in glorious countryside, fascinating wildlife, historic castles and industrial heritage. There’s plenty to do in the delightful Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve (11 miles), famous for its spectacular waterfalls. It’s a wonderful location for wildlife spotting with bats, badgers and 100 bird species.

Or head to Chatelherault Country Park (20 miles) to explore an 18th-century hunting lodge, 500 acres of woodland and parkways and 10 miles of routed pathways.

For urban excursions, Edinburgh (29 miles) is bustling with entertainment options, and you may choose to visit its majestic, fortified castle.

The Chicken Coop was ideal for the 2 of us & the dog over the new year, no fireworks to upset the dog. The hot tub was fantastic in the cold and rain. A very cosy little cabin and the walks in the woods and field were great

Booked the Chicken Coop for our anniversary and took our dog with us for 3 nights. Beautiful setting, perfect to get away from everything and very relaxing. Had everything you need to self-cater and hot tub made it extra special. Good value for money, great communication from owners and would certainly visit again in the future.
