Semi-detached it lies next to the owner’s home by the Glenmidge Burn where the odd glimpse of an otter can be seen. Surrounded by hills and forest the area has abundant wildlife including roe deer foxes badgers tawny and barn owls buzzards and red kites. There are trail paths for walking running and mountain biking on the doorstep but there are also flat routes and quiet country roads along the valley maps are available in the cottage.\nLess than a mile away up the glen stands the remains of the Lag Tower which was built by the wealthy Grierson family in the 15th century and was last occupied by Sir Robert Grierson towards the end of the 17th century.

    We spent a very relaxing month at The Cottage in January. The hosts, Frank & Rosemund, were the best you could wish for. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made us feel like we were at home. Our dog enjoyed his time there and we don't think he really wanted to leave...We would most certainly recommend The Cottage and intend visiting again.

    We had a wonderful week over Christmas at The Cottage. The owners had made a real effort to make the place feel seasonally festive and they'd decorated it beautifully. The area is very scenic with plenty of walks to take advantage of yet still only a short drive to Dumfries to take advantage of the shops/facilities there. The property was presented to a very high standard and contained all the necessities for an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Would love to come back in the summer months as the weather was as you'd expect in December, quite wet and misty. Rosamund and Frank were excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for us. Rosamund even popped in on Xmas day to check that their grandchildren weren't making too much noise from next door (they weren't). Would recommend this cottage to anyone.

    Beautiful little cottage set in a hamlet. The cottage is well equipped with all the basics. The owners (Frank and Rosemund) were more than welcoming, leaving a nice welcome pack for both human and doggy. There are really nice walks local, and the sky at night is amazing. The only downside we encountered was we found the mattress to be a little soft for our liking. We really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to visiting again

    We loved the Cottage. We just have one small suggestion. It would have been more comfortable with a new mattress as the one on the bed is not very comfortable and a King Sized Duvet. We are taller than average and one Double Duvet did not cover us both comfortably. At home we always have a duvet one size larger than the bed. It was lovely apart from not sleeping too well as uncomfortable. The walks are fabulous round about and the air quality is lovely - soft and clean.

    We couldn't have wished for a nicer place, everything we needed was there and the owners more than happy to help with anything else. For a relaxing holiday this is a must, and the dogs were left little treats, and a very nice welcome basket.
