No smoking. \n\n Butterhole Cottage is in a truly delightful setting with fabulous views. Renovated in 2019 Butterhole Cottage is a warm and comfortable single-storey cottage attached to the owners farmhouse. The living room benefits from a cosy wood burner and is situated to the front of the cottage making the most of the views. There is a small kitchendining room as well as two spacious bedrooms perfect for enjoying a well-deserved rest.\n\nSet in the heart of Mabie Forest this property is in the ideal location to enjoy a variety of activities all within walking distance including many and varied walking trails and some of the world-class 7Stanes mountain biking trails. There is even a butterfly reserve near by as well as plenty of open space for children to run around and an adventure playground. A must for the whole family is a visit to Mabie Farm Park nestled just below Mabie Forest where you can feed the animals and see the belted galloways alpaca llamas and much more. It will certainly keep you entertained all day.\n\nFurther afield this beautiful area of South West Scotland has so much more to offer from the quiet sandy coves and cliff top walks to historic castles such as Caerlaverock and Drumlanrig. Warmed by the Gulf Stream the area has many beautiful gardens to visit including National Trust Threave Gardens and Logan Botanic Gardens Scotland’s most exotic garden. A stay here would not be complete without taking a drive along the coast and having a wander round the seaside villages of Southerness Rockcliffe and Kippford. After a day packed with adventure take a leisurely stroll from Butterhole Cottage to the local pub and enjoy a well-deserved drink. Beach 11½ miles. Shop 3 miles pub and restaurant 500 yards.\nButterhole Cottage can be booked together with Brae Cottage ref UK5909 to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    Lovely little cottage in a very rural and peaceful setting. Forest walks on the door step and a short drive into Dumfries. It was an ideal place to get away and relax for a week

    We enjoyed 9 nights at butterhole cottage thanks to our host who thoughtfully left milk tea,coffee, biscuits, and a packet of treats for our dog. We took our 9 year old staffie away as he's terrified of fireworks. It was wonderfull and so peaceful. There wasn't any shops around but that's exactly what we wanted and it was only 13 minutes away from Dumfries in the car. We will definitely be returning. We would highly recommend this beautiful wee gem.

    A lovely 3 nights with my family & our dog. Very comfortable, owners very friendly & thoroughly enjoyed by us all. In a remote spot, which we wanted, lovely & peaceful. Only criticisms (& they're not really issues) are that shower was a bit weak & temp fluctuated a bit & there was no ice cube tray! Hardly issues...!! Overall a quaint place, well equipped & very cozy. We loved it.

    Fantastic location to make use of Mabie forest and surrounding area. Log burner grt and although kitchen is small it had everything you need. Could have been a bit cleaner although you are in the country so guess the odd spider to be expected! I would say it was fine for a family of 4 with 2 being kids but you would struggle in dining and couch in lounge with 4 adults. Lovely welcome treats for us and the dog which was a lovely touch

    Great location, clean and comfortable. Only down side the shower is rather small and we aren't big people. Heather redponded quickly to our request for more logs. Area is accessible, and full of wildlife.

    My companions had to pull out at the last minute so it was just me and Messi the staffy. The peace and quiet was actually just what I needed. Walks in the forest and on the beach tranquil and interesting

    The access to butterhole is a challenge in anything longer or wider than a standard car. It would have useful to know this beforehand as it’s not mentioned in the particulars. I have stayed in other locations in d and g with better facilities and a heck of a lot warmer than this place considering it was 20 degrees outside and I had to put the heating on. Sadly not worth the money and really not as described I’m afraid.



    out of 10

    Overall very comfortable, dining area small and double bedroom and little dark as only window on to porch.
