Exceptional Service

Our award-winning Guest Services team will not only help you find your dream holiday but will support you through every step of your stay.

Upon entering the cottage, you will be greeted by a spacious and sociable living space, comprising a kitchen and lounge with a six-seater dining table. The kitchen is modern with high-quality appliances including a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer and electric oven, hob and three bar stools.

When you’re ready to unwind after a day of exploring, there are two sofas to sink into with the relaxing ambience of the wood-burning stove and your favourite programme on the Smart TV.

There are three beautiful bedrooms, each with its own unique style and luxurious soft furnishings. On the ground floor, there is a double bedroom and a twin bedroom with zip and link beds to form a king if required. Both rooms have access to the downstairs bathroom with a bath and a shower. Upstairs, there is a large king-size bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room.

Outside, you will have access to a stunning private garden with woodland views through which you can glimpse Drumlanrig Castle in the winter months. You will also benefit from an Ooni pizza oven (multi-fuelled) and a luxurious hot tub.

The owners will greet you on arrival and show you into the property.

The property is located on a 90,000-acre private estate with many walking and cycling trails from the doorstep and stunning gardens to explore.
