My guest cottage offers peace and comfort in any season, in the small town of Thornhill. Close to the town centre yet quiet and secluded, It’s a great base for exploring this beautiful region, growing in popularity but still offering tourist-free tranquility and wide open spaces.

Open plan kitchen and sitting room with a cosy wood burning stove for colder evenings and French windows leading to a decked terrace in the peaceful garden for sunny times.

The space
Self contained with side entrance through the garden. Yoga mats and a selection of Pilates small props available on request. Bikes welcome, you can keep them in the secure garden.

The cottage is an annexe to our family home, which, when not hosting guests is used by us. It has books (which you are welcome to read), pictures and ornaments and a cosy, welcoming atmosphere. By staying here you will not be occupying property that could otherwise provide somebody with a permanent home.

The town has a range of local cafes and shops including its own chocolatier! A nearby beauty spot is Crichope Linn, where the river rushes down an impressive sandstone gorge. There are great walks and mountain biking routes in nearby Ae Forest and Drumlanrig Castle park.
