Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Spend a night or more in a beautifully handcrafted wagon in the peace and tranquility of the Dumfriesshire countryside. I've recently added an outdoor kitchen which means you can cook up a feast or make a picnic to take into the hills. The bathroom is warm and spacious but separate from the wagon. This is glamping at it's most comfortable and rural.

The space
(Updated photos of the repainted and improved wagon and new kitchen are on their way) .....Hand built in 2015 by me, your host. The wagon has been lovingly hand crafted, decorated and comfortably fitted out. It is well insulated and the log fire does a fantastic job at keeping you cosy. There is plenty of wood and kindling available for ease of lighting, be prepared to jump out of bed in the winter months to get it lit in the morning though, it can get chilly although the heavy feather duvet will keep you snug.
The bed is fantastically comfortable and the space is large enough at 20ft by 8ft to stretch out and relax.
Perfect as a romantic getaway or as a local option for people with friends or family nearby.
The local scenery is stunning and the farm itself is steeped in history. There is plenty to explore right on the doorstep, with beautiful views and excellent local walks. There is a small loch, (half an hours walk) for wild swimming or taking the little boat out, it's the perfect spot for a picnic.
I can provide you with any information you may need about the local area and will endeavour to do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
There is no wifi and mobile signal is limited, making it a proper get away! The wagon is solar powered and has 2 usb charging points for phones etc. There is a mains plug available in the bathroom which is a short distance from the wagon.
I look forward to welcoming you to Arkleton wagon

Guest access
My home is close by, a cosy little gingerbread cottage with attached walled garden. The garden is open to the public in the Summer months (Thursday-Sunday 10am-4pm) and you are welcome to wander around and make yourselves at home. The little shed cafe serves oven fired pizzas adorned with edible flowers and the home made cakes are a real treat.

Other things to note
Pleasenote that the Garden is open to the public through the Summer months which means that on good weather days there are likley to be cars in the car park. The bathroom will remain private for you and the kitchen is at your disposal. We have a strict Coronavirus guidlines in place and the health and safety of our staff and visitors is paramount.

Location

Arkleton, Scotland, United Kingdom

Langholm and the surrounding area is often overlooked as people head to the Highlands. However it has quite breathtaking scenery and beautiful hill walks. Best of all is its seclusion, while easily accessible from most areas of the UK, it is romantically rural and utterly peaceful.
