We have six well-equipped cottages which have been converted from the original sandstone farm buildings and set round a lovely landscaped courtyard.

Each cottage has its own private patio and BBQ but there is also a large patio area outside the swimming pool.

We have an indoor heated swimming pool and sauna, which is housed inside a cozy log cabin which is ideal for all ages. Take a dip in the pool, sit in the sauna, play pool in our games room or you can just relax and take in the views. Then go for a leisurely walk on the quiet country lanes - there something for everyone! You may even spot a red squirrel or deer.

We have a biomass boiler system, which runs on wood chip, this has reduced our carbon foot print. The system heats all the complex even our swimming pool. Heating at the touch of a button.

Thomas Carlyle and Jane Welsh were married here at in 1826 and this is made a point of reference in some of his works.

This is a beautiful and unspoiled area, which is ideal for wildlife including red squirrels and deer and many outdoor pursuits including cycling at Drumlanrig Castle or the Forest of Ae.

The stunning Solway Coast is approximately 40 minutes away.
