What was once a chicken shed is now a sweet, cosy cottage perfect for families, adventurers, readers, writers, nature lovers.
There are two bedrooms (one king size bed, two singles), a wood burning stove, lovely fresh décor with character, books, a new kitchen, stunning views. You can explore beautiful beaches, great small towns, rolling hills or just enjoy looking out the window. You'll hear owls, see hares and red kites and get a taste of this undiscovered corner of Scotland.

The space
We are happy for you to bring your dog with you. Please ensure it's clean when it comes in from walking, and don't let it get up onto the furniture. Also, please don't leave your dog in the cottage by itself at all. There is plenty of outdoor space and if you close the gates the area around the cottage is dog-proof (except if you've got a tiny dog or a super jumper!). Please tidy up after your dog if it poos, and ensure your dog doesn't bother sheep or cows in neighbouring fields.

When we are not around, our neighbours Chris and Heather at Nether Glaisters look after the cottage for us. You will find their contact details in the pack in the cottage.
The cottage is in a very rural farming area. Please ensure that you respect the rules of the countryside, particularly concerning dogs and livestock.
The road leading to the cottage is quite rough at the moment. Beware of potholes and please drive carefully.
It is a long way to the nearest shop. We strongly recommend stocking up at one of the supermarkets in Dumfries (you pass them on the A75 as you drive through Dumfries towards Stranraer) or Castle Douglas. The little shop at the junction in Crocketford is well stocked and sells lovely local honey, jam and cheese, homemade tattie scones as well as papers etc. Please support this shop!

Hello, My name is Alison, I live with my husband, two young children and our dog in Somerset, England. We are all very enthusiastic travellers and have lived in Sri Lanka and Argentina as well as Scotland and England. Our Scottish cottage is in an amazing spot absolutley away from it all. There is a big house next door which is our 'project' but the cottage is all newly decorated and furnished. We think it's a lovely little place for families to stay. We hope you enjoy visiting this gorgeous part of Scotland. Most of teh time we wont be around, but in school holidays we will be. Please feel free to ask any questions!
