Charming period stylish cottage with private open fronted housed hot tub with seating area and wood burner perfect for cosy nights in. Within walking distance of all local amenities.

Enjoying a peaceful rural location on the edge of bustling Dumfries, this one-bedroom period property is perfect for couples seeking a romantic retreat, complete with private hot tub. Stroll the quaint streets of historic Dumfries (2.5 miles) and admire the view of the River Nith from Devorgilla Bridge, the oldest arched bridge in Scotland. Enjoy a round at one of the many nearby golf courses or lace up your walking boots for a tramp through the Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve (6.5 miles), home to wildfowl, wading birds and natterjack toads.

Sitting in a delightful courtyard setting, your single storey semi-detached cottage offers spacious accommodation decorated in a palette of warm tones with wooden floors, creating a welcoming and homely environment. Light the wood burner and dine in front of its soothing warmth before heading outside to soak in your private open-fronted housed hot tub.

Take the short flight of steps to the front door and step into the entrance hall of your cosy cottage where you can leave wellies and walking boots. Cook up a storm in the stylish kitchen where you will find plenty of space to store your provisions. Head through to your lounge/diner where you can dine at the table for two overlooking the garden. Snuggle up on the sumptuous sofa with a glass of your favourite tipple and enjoy the crackle of the logs in the wood burner. At bedtime, freshen up in the shower room before cuddling up in your king-size bed with woodland views and drift off for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Your fully enclosed garden sits within the shared courtyard. Enjoy the wonderful hot tub in its open fronted housing or dine al fresco at the cosy seating area.

The area surrounding your cottage is a joy for outdoor enthusiasts with excellent walking and cycling routes in the immediate vicinity, including the Maidenbower Walk running past the doorstep. Follow in the footpath of poet Robbie Burns as you take the circular Burn's Walk from the heart of Dumfries, along the tranquil banks of the River Nith to the statue of Burns in front of Greyfriars Church. Explore the Forest of Ae (12.5 miles) by foot or pedal. Weave your way through the towering Norway spruce trees to seek out the red squirrels springing from branch to branch or herons dipping their beaks in the burn. Hop in the saddle for a leisurely ride through the forest in search of the best vantage point across the canopy or for a white-knuckle mountain bike adventure, try one of the 'orange' runs for steep descents and multiple jumps.

Spend your days discovering some of the wonderful beaches that dot the 200 miles of coastline along the Soway Firth from sandy beaches to hidden shingle coves. Walk the wide sandy beach at Southerness (17 miles) to reach the 18th century lighthouse, the second oldest in Scotland. Investigate the rockpools and mudflats for wildlife and keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of dolphins and porpoises in the water.

Venture further afield for a day of water sports on Loch Ken (28 miles). Try your hand at kayaking, sailing or stand-up paddle boarding. During the summer months challenge each other on the wobbly waterpark as you slip, slide and scramble along the inflatable obstacle course. If you're feeling adventurous, strap yourself in for a thrilling ride across the loch on the zip wire.

This cottage was very comfortable with everything we needed. The hot tub was very relaxing after days out. It has a very rural feel to it but your only a short drive into town. Great base for exploring all that Dumfries and Galloway have to offer. We had an amazing holiday. Our dog loved it as well.

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.
