The castle has been owned by the same family for 350 years and was built around 1581 as a fortified tower to protect the Douglas family and neighbours from Border Reivers. The south-facing cottage was built as a bothy for the tower and has been transformed into very comfortable accommodation for two people. The spacious living room has a cosy wood burner and there is a wet room compact kitchen and a comfortable bedroom. Outside there is a lawned area around the cottage with garden seating. The orchard and grounds are shared with guests at the castle. There is a soothing sound from the Braidwood Burn fenced just below the cottage and there are walks down to the River Clyde through a network of paths nearby. The central location enables easy access to some wonderful countryside in the Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve just north of Lanark 5 miles where there are way marked trails to explore. At the UNESCO New Lanark World Heritage Centre on the magnificent Falls of Clyde you can discover how life was lived at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.

    Lovely rural cottage, fully equipped and nice and warm with a log burner if you need a boost. Spotlessly clean on arrival with a nice welcome pack. Crossford, Carluke and Lanark all within easy reach. Trains run regularly to Glasgow from Carluke takes about 45min. Would highly recommend.

    A warm and cosy cottage set in a peaceful location though not too far from shops, places to eat and visit etc. Perfect for wellie and boot wearers as can be a little muddy out the front, and although not heavy you need to be happy to open and close the main gate each time to go out and come back. We didn't mind at all, but a less physically able person may struggle. We would definitely come back, loved the good quantity bed linen, towels, crockery and cutlery as well as the furniture and décor of the cottage-access to firewood great too.

    Unique spot right next to a medieval tower, no problems with parking or access to shops. This is a real getaway from it all as there is no wi-fi or even ITV never mind freeview channels, it is like going back in time. It was wet for most of our week but our dog loved all the walks in the woods near Lanark racecourse. We found it to be off the tourist track a bit but many folk may like that. Nearby Peebles and Biggar are good days out.

    Thank you for a lovely stay in Orchard Cottage! The cottage was ideal for us as a couple and our two dogs (they loved the warm fire and the space to run around!) . The location was central to lots of local attractions if you're an outdoorsy person-easy drive to Glasgow too if that's what you're into. Such a peaceful location and lovely owners who were quick to point us in the direction of heating and firewood when the weather turned a bit colder. Lovely touches when we arrived too with a hamper of goodies and beautifully clean and tidy cottage. The bedroom is a little tired but all part of the character and was still very cosy. Kitchen was well-equipped for straightforward cooking. Would recommend a sofa for the living room as it would be nice to properly relax. Would highly recommend this lovely, peaceful and private cottage for couples. Thanks again!

    Lovely cosy cottage in amazing grounds of the small castle. We received a fantastic welcome pack which had everything you needed for breakfast and snacks, as well as a bottle of wine. We hope to return for another visit soon.
