Please note There are 2 steps in the garden.\n\n Liftingstane Dairy Cottage ref UK5878 is an attractive and beautifully presented barn conversion adjoining Liftingstane Cottage.\n\nLiftingstane Farm is set in a rural location in the mid-section of the beautiful Nith Valley in Dumfries-shire near to the small village of Closeburn and 4 miles from Thornhill. There is a choice of activities locally to suit all ages including walking cycling golfing fishing and birdwatching. Enjoy a round of golf at the local 18-hole course in Thornhill or if fishing is your thing the River Nith provides numerous areas to fish for salmon and trout licence required. Drumlanrigg Castle and Gardens Ellisland once home to Robert Burns Charles Jenck’s Garden of Cosmic Speculation and world class mountain biking routes the 7 Stanes are all on your doorstep. 20 minutes south is the town of Dumfries with lots to keep the whole family entertained with farm parks swimming ice-skating art centres and shopping.\n\nAccording to local historical records Liftingstane Farm had a ’lifting stane’ lifting stone on the property up until about 200 years ago hence how the farm got its name. Unfortunately no one knows what happened to it. The challenge of the Lifting Stane is to lift it proving an individual’s strength. Lifting Stanes are common throughout Scotland Wales and Cumbria and recently stones have been incorporated into the World’s Strongest Man competitions.\n\nFurther afield take a trip to the Galloway Forest Park one of the darkest places in the UK in fact the UK’s first Dark Sky Park. A visit to this area of south west Scotland would not be complete without a day trip to the rugged coastline and seaside with visits to the quaint villages and towns such as Kippford Sandyhills Southerness and Kirkcudbright.\n\nThis is a central base for day trips to Glasgow Edinburgh Stranraer or Carlisle which are all within a 1½ hour drive. If you fancy a stress-free day why not just relax in the peace and quiet at the farmhouse. Shop 1 mile pub and restaurant 3 miles.\n\nLiftingstane Dairy Cottage can be booked together with Liftingstane Cottage ref UK5232 and Liftingstane Farmhouse ref UK10452 to accommodate up to 17 guests.

    From the minute we arrived, we felt relaxed and comfortable, we stayed Xmas week, me, the Mrs & our olde Tyme English Bulldog, we all loved everything about it especially the wood burner, the only problem is if you stay here, you will never want to leave, it’s fantastic, and so are the other 2, properties on the farm, Ali & Jock, are a fantastic couple and so helpful, we will definitely return loved it

    The cottage is situated near a one way road. There are plenty of passing places on the road and we noticed that the locals will back their cars up onto the passing places instead of us doing it. Saying that we stayed for a week and only encountered 2 cars while driving on the road. The cottage has 2 lovely beddroom with one having an en-suit. The bathrooms a of a high standard with underfloor heating. The showers are hot and powerful. The kitchen is well equipped and even has sharpe knives. This may sound like a small detail but ive been to many cottages where the knives wont cut through veg and it makes the stay annoying as you cant cook the way you want to. The sitting room is small but has a tv and a nice log fire. The owner left us throws to put over the sofas for the dogs so that they were able to sit on the sofas as well. This is such a nice touch and ive never seen it done in any other cottage. The cottage has a long hallway which my 9 1/2 mth old loved to play in. There is a nice garden to the side of the cottage and nice walks nearby for the dogs. Overall i would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a friendly warm place where your whole family are made to feel welcome. The owner is really nice and couldnt do enough for us.

    Amazing cottage with breathe taking views and evrrything you could possibly need for a wonderful break. Ali & Jock the owners are warm & friendly and could not do enough and can't wait to return again. The cottage is dog and wheelchair friendly.

    What a fantastic cottage! We didn't want to leave! The cottage itself is beautiful....immaculate, with everything you might need (and more!) The small touches really make you feel welcome (biscuits, fresh flowers, dog treats etc). The cottage is in a fantastic location in peaceful surroundings....close enough to the village but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the local area. It is ideally situated to visit the coast, Drumlanrig Castle and a few different forests. Ali and Jock are fantastic hosts. They really made us feel welcome and gave us great advice about places to visit and where to walk our dog. We will be back (hopefully soon!)

    What a gorgeous property with everything you would need provided for you. It has lovely views from the garden and patio. The location is great for exploring the local area and beyond. The owners are so friendly and welcoming. If you take a dog with you it will get lots of fuss from Ali and Jock especially Ali!! We will be returning to this wonderful property and would recommend anyone going there.

    The Dairy Cottage was fantastic the views and surroundings were exceptional the place was clean everything you need was thought off even down to sewing kit, plasters, even treats and a bed for your dog, also you had WFI and logs for the wood burner at no extra chart, the bedrooms were spacious with plenty of room bathrooms nice size shower in both bathrooms plus a roll top bath in one, washer an dryer, all furniture an fittings were of good quality the beds were really comfortable that we over slept quiet often in the week. Ali An Jock were great an very friendly an called in to make sure everything was ok. Lots of places to visit and lovely walks an surroundings We will definitely be returning in the future.

    Spent a great week at Dairy cottage, lovely owners and fabulous cottage - cosy, spotlessly clean and equipped to a high standard. Family of four and our two JRT’s Kipper and Chip had a great week and we were made very welcome by all the locals. Liftingstane is well situated for daily excursions and we made it to a beach every day. Highly recommend these cottages 

    Really lovely holiday cottage. Ali and Jock have thought of everything. Very welcoming and generous hosts. Some cottages dont leave you anything to start you off but this cottage is really well equipped. The bathrooms are lovely, best shower I've ever had!! The area is beautiful, with lots of wildlife and handsome livestock. The dairy herd down the road are gorgeous. We visited the red kite feeding centre and found the wild goat herd. Drumlanrig castle down the road is a must. Filled a whole day there easily with lovely walks in the woodland and a tour of the castle. We will definitely come back, and bring our dogs next time!!!
