If you’re keen on a Scottish rural break with up to four dogs, this wooden cabin in the glorious Clyde Valley makes the perfect location. The one-bed property is located on a working farm with sheep, goats and alpacas you can get to know, as well as the owners’ seven dogs. When you’re not soaking in your hot tub or absorbing the peaceful surrounding vistas, explore the scenic landscapes and historic sites of Lanarkshire and the Scottish Borders.

Constructed solely from timber, this delightful dwelling has a distinctive and rustic ambience reminiscent of a mountain hut. The arched wooden ceilings contribute to a cosy and inviting setting, while the captivating vistas of expansive fields encourage complete relaxation. As you settle in, you’ll notice a number of animal-themed touches that are in keeping with the farm setting.

Inside, the open-plan living area has everything you need for eating and relaxing, with a lounge, Smart TV and adequate kitchen. A door from this space leads to a generous king-sized bedroom that’s ideal for one guest or a couple. This further connects to a well-designed wet room. Thoughtfully created with pets in mind, the cabin features padded, anti-skid floors to ensure your dogs’ well-being during your stay.

Outside, you'll find multiple spaces to enjoy, starting with your cabin’s own enclosed garden featuring artificial turf and a secluded hot tub that overlooks the fields and woodlands. A shared communal grassy area overlooks an unfenced pond, and there’s an indoor BBQ hut you can hire out for a romantic dinner. For your four-legged family members, an off-lead exercise field is also available.

The pretty local area is a nature lover’s dream, with plenty of forest paths you can discover by foot or by bike. At Tinto Hill, 4.5 miles away, you’ll have the opportunity to go trout fishing or. If you’re feeling energetic, head up to its peak (8 miles) to take in expansive views over the Clyde Valley. This straightforward circular route is approximately 4 miles and should take roughly three hours for a return trip. The historic market town of Biggar lies 5.5 miles away – head there for a drink in a local pub or a nice meal out. The museum is also worth checking out if you wish to learn more about the region's archaeological, social and historical significance.

Starting 10 miles away at Lanark Loch, the Clyde Valley Tourist Route showcases stunning countryside, elusive wildlife, historical castles and industrial landmarks. We strongly recommend the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve (11 miles), renowned for its breathtaking waterfalls. Take your binoculars – this is a prime spot for viewing bats, badgers and over 100 bird species.

At Chatelherault Country Park (20 miles), wander round the 18th-century hunting lodge before discovering 600-year-oaks within its 500 acres of woodland, then popping into the lovely café for some tea and cake.

The city of Edinburgh, 29 miles away, is of course teeming with attractions like shops, art galleries, museums and world-famous attractions including Arthur’s Seat. A visit to its impressive castle is certainly worthwhile.

This was our first time away as a family with our 7 week old baby and dog, everything was absolutely perfect and just what we were looking for. Cottage was spotless, the wee garden was ideal for the dog and the hot tub was amazing! We will definitely be back, hopefully for longer next time.

Excellent accommodation, in an excellent location. We had our dog with us and the fenced area around the property was great for him to wander in and out from without any worries for us, especially when we were in the hot tub. Tom and Sarah are excellent hosts and we would highly recommend staying here. We'll be back!

Had a fantastic few days at the Alpaca barn with our lab. The house was lovely, plenty of space, clean and comfortable. Great having the enclosed garden to be able to let the dog out in the morning. Lovely forest walk direct from the cottage and great to have the exercise field too. Biggar is a nice wee town with a selection of coffee shops and nicRead moree pub. Lovely pet shop too - we got some nice chews to occupy the dog while we were in the hot tub! Hide
