This recently converted eco house is situated in lovely countryside, and a great base for enjoying or exploring the area. The coach house itself is very smart, lots of oak, and lovely furniture. It is also well equiped with giants TV's and a brilliant stereo, plus good kitchen equipment etc. The accomodation is quite versatile, suiting parties small and large.
Our daughter really loved her handbuilt bunkbed, but was happy to get up in the mornings to feed the tame llammas with Juliet (the owner, who lives nearby)
We would have been content to stay in, and enjoy the house.
However as we were on holiday we dragged ourselves out to explore the area.
Kirkpatrick Durham is the nearest village, a short stroll away, quite picturesqe and well worth walking through. There is a good circular walk down one drive, through the village, and up the other drive.
There are good pubs around, some brilliant castles, some ruins, and an art trail. Also a brilliant place for homecooked lunches and cream teas.
Threave Castle, a short drive away, must not be missed. Its on a small Island, and features the shortest ferry crossing in the UK! Its about 20 metres in a little motor boat, and great fun.
Castle Douglas is about 15 minutes drive away, a pleasant market town, worth visiting, with good shops (large & small), pubs, restaurants,and a selection of indivudal takeaway restaurants.
Dumfries is about 20 minutes away, a good sized town, with good shops, pubs, restaurants, and a fair bit of history. You can park too!
I really enjoyed the quirky aircraft museum, just outside town. Our daughter enjoyed the small animal park and play centre.
Also lots of walks, forests, fishing etc.,
Everyday we had to rush back for llamma feeding time.
Juliet and Allan did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.
My one negative comment is that the days seem to speed by very quickly in Kirkpatrick Durham. We want to go back there, because time ran out before we had done and seen much of what is available.
We all had a great holiday, our age range is 5<58. and will definitely be staying again.

Cannot fault this property at all.Everything has been expertly thought out.It is a large coach house which has been renevated to an extremely high standard and can be rented as either the whole house or two seperate flats.We have just returned from a short break there.Three families consisting of 6 adults and 7 children and had a fantasic time.The owners,Juliet and Alan are exteremly welcoming and helpful.They have endless patience with children allowing them to help with feeding and walking the llamas not to mention 'Small' the farm cat.Alan can also organise a trip down the lane in a motorbike sidecar which is a huge hit.Everything in the house is of the best quality and every appliance you could wish for is there.Already looking forward to a return visit.
