Fantastic stylish private wing of a magnificent Scottish Baronial Mansion located amid beautiful, landscaped gardens. Relax in front of the open fire after a day out exploring the beautiful local area.

Treat yourself and your family or friends to a stay at this impressive Scottish country house, set within immaculate grounds, some 2 miles from Langholm. Up to four people, plus a pair of very contented canines, can experience the magic of a stay at this handsome home, which was once a baronial mansion. Explore this verdant corner of Scotland, close to the border with England. Enjoy the scenic Esk Valley on foot or by bicycle and return to your two-bedroom holiday home, set within your own private wing, to light the fire or unwind in the sunshine.

Make your way into your welcoming abode via the indoor courtyard. Let yourselves into the hall and wander through into the lounge to stoke up the fire and gaze out across the garden towards the fields. Plan your evening’s viewing on the Smart TV; read your book for a while or chat through your plans for the following day’s adventures. Amble through into the bright kitchen/diner to make a homecooked dinner then take in the leafy view through the window in here as you enjoy it.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor to choose between the king-size bedroom and the twin. The family shower room is also at this level. Take in the wonderful views in the morning as you enjoy your first cup of coffee of the day.

Enjoy relaxing out in the indoor courtyard with a cup of tea and a slice of cake after returning from your long walks. Find a useful boot room here too, where you can leave your jackets, books and any other hiking gear. Wander out into the shared garden to bask in the sunshine on summer days and to cook supper outside on the BBQ. Find plenty of parking at the country house.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Spend time in Langholm, with its galleries and independent stores to ponder in. Shop for local produce in the farmers’ market at the Buccleuch Centre, where you might also be lucky enough to see a live performance. Langholm is also known for its salmon fishing; angling permits for the River Esk can be arranged here.

Venture 4.5 miles from the property to take a tour of Gilnockie Tower, a 16th-century tower house. Drive 7.5 miles and cross the border into England to explore the magnificent Kielder Forest Park. Here you can follow trails through the woodland and around the largest man-made lake in northern Europe. Drive approximately 20 miles from your Scottish base to reach Hadrian’s Wall, where you might like to walk for a stretch.

Journey 15 miles to celebrated Gretna, known as the place young lovers from England would elope to. Spend time meandering around the shops here, dine out in cafes and restaurants and wander round the Devil’s Porridge Museum, once the largest munitions factory in the world.

We stayed mid-Nov 2021 for 2 nights. The cottage is fab. Been modernised to a high standard. Kitchen is well-equipped (best that I've used so far when self-catering) with a decent range of knives, non-stick pans that are non-stick etc. Rooms are airy, clean and , importantly for mid-Nov, cosy. The fire place was a real treat as was being able to siRead moret out on a clear night and properly see the stars. Welcome pack of truffles, scones etc was a v nice touch.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
