This wonderful historic luxury converted 18th century former church, is located in the picturesque village of Cummertrees, on the stunning Solway Coast Heritage Trail, just a short stroll to a beautiful sandy beach.

Situated in a picturesque coastal village, this spacious, quirky and imaginatively converted 18th century church was originally commissioned by Robert the Bruce some 700 years ago. Sympathetically restored in 2015, the property makes a fantastic base for a family or group of friends looking for a more unusual holiday retreat. Perfect for a group holiday or family celebration, the house is just a mile’s stroll from a beautiful sandy beach and is ideal for walkers, cyclists, mountain bikers, golfers and nature-lovers.

Beautifully re-imagined, the property retains many features of the original church which date back to 1777. The house still has the appearance of a church, and the pulpit, lychgate and old church windows lend character and charm to the atmosphere of this quirky and elegant retreat. Elsewhere there’s a variety of more modern furnishings scattered throughout the house, and plenty of space for you to all relax and sit back. Steeped in history this wonderful light-filled getaway has been vibrantly decorated and thoughtfully furnished. With a large and elegantly designed open-plan living area and five comfortable bedrooms, it provides a great backdrop for a memorable holiday.

On entering this beautiful property, you will find the spacious and attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. An elegant and welcoming space, it offers a range of features including a traditional wood burner, SkyTV and iPod dock as well as the original pulpit overlooking the scene. The charming dining area features both an informal breakfast bar and a slightly more formal dining table ideal for an evening meal or celebration. The stylish kitchen and utility room are fully equipped with everything you’re likely to need including a wine cooler. Exploring the ground floor further, there are two zip-and-link twin bedrooms, which can be made into king-size rooms on request. There is also a lovely ground-floor bathroom.

Heading up to the first floor via the twisting staircase which overlooks the lychgate via a beautiful church window, you will find an additional lounge. This is an ideal space for children, with SkyTV/DVD and a PlayStation 4 console. There are three further bedrooms: a double room and two super-king-size rooms – one with an en-suite bathroom. This floor also has a family bathroom.

Stepping outside, you can unwind in the large shared garden where you can enjoy a BBQ in the charming seating area. You will also have access to the old church graveyard with its numerous ancient historic gravestones and the mausoleum of the Marquesses of Queensberry.

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

The house is lovely and we were very comfortable there. We were, however, surprised to find the 'shared garden' was the surrounding overgrown churchyard. Didn't realize we had to share it with the long departed!

Reviewed by John 6th July 2019

This unusual property was delightful to stay in for the week. The house has been renovated to a high standard and had everything we needed. We did have some teething problems with water and drainage but the owner sorted these out quickly. Everyone in our group enjoyed the atmosphere and comfort of the house.

Excellent accommodation for a bigger group with plenty of bathroom space and loads of lounge area too. Beautifully renovated/decorated. Its in a very small and quiet village/hamlet. We found lots of places to walk the dogs but some people may find it too remote/quiet. There are things to do further a field if you prefer to get out and about in the Read morecar and use this fantastic place as a base. Hide

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.
