A wonderful old stone farmhouse, which has been renovated to the highest standard, Middleholms is a comfortable, spacious self-catering holiday home in a large garden on a hill, with fabulous views East across the Esk valley and North towards Langholm, the 'Muckle Toon'. Accessed by a long private drive, the property is totally secluded, sheltered by woodland on the South, and surrounded by farmland. The house is full of character, and a perfect place for families and friends to relax; in fact, it is such a special, peaceful place to visit, that it will be hard to leave at the end of your stay. You will enjoy cooking in the fantastic, open-plan kitchen with its AGA, bespoke hand-painted wooden units and granite worktops, or unwinding or dining in the huge new architect designed conservatory, where you can enjoy the garden and views, whatever the weather.

The sitting room with its wood burning stove, plasma TV and surround-sound offers entertainment for the evenings and damp days whilst the separate barn provides a great Games room complete with table tennis, additional TV, and the cosiness of a wood burning stove and sofas. In the fine weather, the lovely garden with its stunning views is the perfect spot for a BBQ and meal outside.

Middleholms is located in the middle of Eskdale, which with its majestic, unspoilt landscape, is one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets, perfect for walking, cycling, fishing, bird watching etc, making Middleholms the perfect holiday home for exploring all that Dumfries and Galloway has to offer. The area is full of history and interesting places to visit: Hermitage Castle, Hollows Tower from where you can follow the Border Reivers trail, the birthplace of Thomas Telford, and Kagyu Samye Ling, the first and largest Tibetan Centre and Buddhist monastery in Britain.

Langholm, the birthplace of the poet Hugh MacDiarmid, is a vibrant town with its own brand new arts venue - the Buccleuch Centre, with regular concerts and events, a nine-hole golf course, an annual Music and Arts Festival and a walking festival. In the winter rugby and football can be enjoyed most Saturdays. Most notably, Langholm’s great day, the Common Riding, takes place annually on the last Friday of July every year. The Esk is a famous fishing river and permits can be arranged in season. Cycling, walking routes are locally available.See also the local website:

    Middleholms reviews
    Middleholms was a beautiful tranquil retreat in an idyllic location. The cottage had everything we wanted both practically and for our enjoyment. The gardens are gorgeous with plenty of outdoor furniture if the weather is fine, which ours was. Rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. Langholm is a lovely town with shops for provisions and pubs and restaurants serving lovely food. It's easy to travel around Dumfries and Galloway and across the boarder into Northumberland and Cumbria. We had a lovely walk from Gilsland to Birdoswald along Hadrian's Wall. All in all, a great cottage in a wonderful location.
    Mrs Kennedy - July 2019
    A lovely, comfortable, homely house with fabulous views. The caretaker, David, was very helpful and friendly. Would have liked mirror hung on wall in bedroom instead of propped against the wall. A fantastically well equipped house. We would like to return when we have more time in order to explore the beautiful countryside. Excellent evening meal at the Douglas hotel.
    Mrs Batchelor - June 2019
    A fantastic holiday house. The conservatory, with a door to the outside and with a window opening into a big family kitchen with an Aga, made an excellent family hub. Woodpeckers and barn owls an unexpected treat. Just one thing: there is no small enclosed area, without steps and linked to the house, where children can safely play without an adult present. That said, still five stars!!
    Mrs Smith - June 2017
    We all thought the house provided a welcoming , comfortable, extremely well provisioned centre for a family holiday in a great setting with excellent views. The barn with the table tennis was an added bonus and the garden with the various seating areas, was lovely. It was kind to leave a supply of birdseed so that we were able to enjoy watching the birds feeding. I appreciated the spacious kitchen with everything I could possibly need. Owing to the quirks of our family it was the oldies who were up in the attic rooms. These were very pleasant and comfortable but an upstairs loo and shower would have made it perfect. The little playroom in the eves was a delight though. There were plenty of walks in the area. Meals at the Douglas Arms and Truly Scrumcious were excellent and both establishments very welcoming. Trips to the golf course were enjoyed. We didn't have enough time to explore as much as we wanted. We all would have loved to stay longer!
    Dr Welsh - August 2016
    Stunning scenery with a perfect place to stay with everything you could need. Short drive to local village with a Co op supermarket and a lovely pub restaurant called The Douglas. Couldn't have asked for more
    Mr Brown - June 2016
    A fabulous place to stay. Comfortable and cosy but also spacious. Log burners, a great big country kitchen, a dining table to seat 10, comfy beds and table tennis table. Middleholms has it all! Location great with a reasonably easy walk during the day into Langholm for supermarket, pubs and golf course. Perfect for our family get-together with relatives coming from Scotland and the North of England. Cannot praise this house and location enough and would love to experience it in the Summer to use the lovely outside space.
    Mrs Wooley - November 2015
    Great house for 10 people, plenty of room and spaces to relax in. The huge barn/games room would be perfect for families with teenagers or younger kids. Well equipped kitchens, good walking from the front or back doors. Caretaker very friendly and helpful.
