This romantic hideaway is set on the edge of the market town of Lockerbie, 20 miles from the Scotland/England border. The property’s central location makes it a great base for exploring the rolling hills and glens of Dumfries and Galloway, as well as the rock shoreline of southern Scotland and the Solway Coast. After a day of exploring, return to the cottage for an evening of al fresco dining in the garden, admiring the far-reaching rural views.

The luxurious barn conversion is bright and spacious, with an impressive-vaulted ceiling and exposed trusses adding character and a sense of grandeur. The decor is contemporary and features vibrant pops of colour both on the walls and in the soft furnishings.

Enter the holiday home into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you’ll find a stylish kitchen area for whipping up delicious dinners for two to enjoy together at the wooden dining table. After dinner, sink into the plush corner sofa to read your book or watch a movie on the Smart TV. At the far end of the barn is a fabulous super-king-size bedroom, with a striking wood-panelled wall and delicate decor. Completing the romantic retreat is a sleek shower room with a rainfall shower.

The tranquil garden is fully enclosed and has a large grass area where four-legged friends can play. Unwind here, dining alfresco at the picnic bench, listening to the birds singing in the surrounding trees and watching the local wildlife coming and going.

Take a stroll through the streets of Lockerbie, admiring the town’s historic buildings and red, sandstone houses. The River Annan flows through the centre of the town, allowing pretty waterside walks after a coffee and homemade cake in one of the local cafes. Lockerbie has several visitor attractions to add to the itinerary, including the fascinating Aviation Museum and an ice rink. Just outside the town is Eskrigg Reserve, where you can marvel at an array of Scottish wildlife, including red squirrels and deer.

Just 18 miles away is the iconic village of Gretna Green. Enjoy a day trip here to visit the Village Blacksmith’s Shop and immerse yourself in history amongst the photographs and memorabilia from couples who have eloped to this famous wedding venue for centuries.

The stunning Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is within touring distance (approx. 30 miles). This walker’s paradise of dramatic coast paths, rocky cliffs, and sandy beaches is the perfect place to get away from it all and embrace nature. On a clear day, the views across the Solway Firth to the mountains of Scotland are unrivalled.

There are beaches dotted along the coastline on either side of the Solway Firth, all begging to be explored. The wide, sandy beach at Southerness is ideal for a traditional day at the seaside, or to get away from it all head to the salt marshes and sand dunes of Bowness-on-Solway.

The Bothy is utterly stunning. The decor & soft furnishings are divine. You could not wish to wake up in a better place. The attention to detail & thought put in to the conversion is second to none. The location for exploring Dumfries & Galloway is perfect only a stones throw from Moffat, Castle Douglas & Dumfries. A big Tesco in Lockerbie & the buRead moretchery for local meats & provisions. Trains every two hours for a day trip to Edinburgh. What more could anyone want. We will be back Hide
