Welcome pack and doggy extras.\n\n Enclosed lawned garden with sitting-out area garden furniture and BBQ. Bike store. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking. \n\n Burnside is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Rigg on a country lane close to the world famous Gretna Green. The location is ideal as it is only minutes from the main A75 and M6 so absolutely perfect for exploring the area. Burnside has been refurbished in 2018 and is an attractive Galloway cottage all on the one level and has delightful enclosed gardens ideal for your dog. Whilst you are enjoying the evening sunshine also enjoy the views of the Cumbrian hills from the garden too. Burnside is just under 2 miles from Gretna Green one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations due to its romantic wedding traditions dating back to the 1700s. Possibly the most romantic village in the UK it has become synonymous with romance and runaway couples. Marriage ceremonies are still performed over a blacksmith’s anvil and Gretna Green attracts thousands of couples from all around the world to be married each year.\nIt is easy to overlook that there is more to this area than weddings. Ideally placed to not only explore Dumfries and Galloway it is also within easy reach of the Scottish Borders Hadrian’s Wall the fells of the Lake District National Park and much more. A stay at Burnside would not be complete without a day’s shopping at Gretna Green Outlet Village and a must is a trip to the nearby Devil’s Porridge Museum where you can learn the story of how this area flourished into a hub of wartime activity. There is also access to the Solway Coast just 2 miles away ideal for walking your four-legged friend although the beach is only accessible at low tide. Beach 2 miles. Shop pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Excellent accommodation, very clean, couldn’t fault the level of equipment, everything provided for a carefree and relaxing stay. Unfortunately we arrived with the storm Ciara which curtailed visiting the countryside somewhat, but nevertheless we were able to snuggle up and have a relaxing few days. Claire was welcoming, helpful and made sure everything was just right for our stay. We took no photographs so will be unable to provide any pictorial references.
