Description

The Space

A Scottish cottage in a beautiful historic village. Built 1700 this two bedroom cottage has many modern conveniences, it is warm and snug with a wood burning stove plus oil fired central heating. The kitchen has all modern conveniences, dishwasher, fridge freezer, fan oven, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer etc. Both bedrooms have kingsize double beds. One bedroom is en-suite. There is a workshop / garage attached for bikes and stuff, parking for one car is directly outside. The cottage can be reached by bus from Dumfries where there is a railway station. it is worth noting that cell phone reception is at best patchy with only Vodafone working.

It's really close to great beaches and coast plus hills and walking country. The house has a pub less than 30 metres away and a shop too. There are 2 of the wolrd famous 7Stanes mountain bike courses at Dalbeattie and Mabie plus a third one at Ae only another few miles further.

The village of New Abbey is home to the 13th Century Sweetheart Abbey, and the water powered corn mill. There is a beautiful walled garden at Shambellie and an award winning tea room. All of these attractions are a vey short walk from the cottage.

The house is great for nature lovers and those who want a break in rural Scotland.

Guests will have access and exclusive use of the whole house

I always try to speak to my guests on arrival and like to answer any questions and give advice for things to see and do. We will not be around during your stay but usually contactable by phone.

New Abbey is just a really great little village with everything you need close at hand. It has it's own pub, tea room and shop so you could park the car and never bother driving all week

a good local bus service connects New Abbey to Dumfries and from there are long distance coach and rail connections for onward travel

close to coast and countr;y nature and history.
