My place is close to Fishing, River Nith, Woodland and Valleys. The situation of this listed cottage is on a private track, very peaceful and nestled amongst established mixed woodland. The beds have memory foam mattresses with cotton sheets. Centrally heated with wood stove. Opposite the cottage is a woodland track leading to our 1.3 acre walled garden which produces organic fruit, vegetables and herbs. Hosts are situated 2 minutes walk away out of view to allow for your own privacy.
The cottage is located on a private track as part of an old estate dating back to the 16th Century. Full of charm and history, the Back Lodge is a well maintained, recently refurbished listed cottage with original features, attractive wallpapers throughout and styled for comfort and relaxation. A victorian walled garden is located 90m from the front door, hosting a variety of organic fruit trees and bushes, vegetable and herb beds. The garden is surrounded by 8 acres of mixed woodland and paddock owned by the hosts, therefore you are guaranteed peace, quiet and privacy. The hosts live in a cottage 2 minute walk down the private track to assist with any questions and to welcome you, but out of sight for your privacy and feeling of being completely surrounded by nature. 10 minute walk from the cottage is a well reputed and popular fishing beat; Barjarg Fishings with a comfortable fishing hut and 3 miles of salmon fishing. Permits can be obtained in advance of your booking.
The cottage is self-contained and booked for the private use of our guests with no immediate neighbours or other cottages, you are left alone to enjoy your stay in peace and quiet without any interruptions.

Other things to note
The cottage is centrally heated throughout and also has a wood burning stove in the living room to keep it cosy in all seasons. There is parking directly outside the cottage. We can also provide a 'welcome breakfast' or hamper of locally sourced produce (at extra cost) if you want to taste some local recommendations and start your stay on a full stomach before getting your shopping in. Additionally we can source flowers, champagne and chocolate if you are planning a surprise romantic stay. Please do not hesitate to ask in advance if we can help make your arrival perfect.
