Mildam Croft

Lovers of the great outdoors will be ideally placed at this ground floor apartment just a few miles from Dumfries.. Milldam Croft is a comfortable ground floor apartment set on the edge of the charming village of New Abbey in Dumfries and Galloway. The apartment benefits from both front and back gardens visited by woodpeckers and red squirrels. It is just a short walk up the road to the Waterloo Monument for great views over the Nith Estuary. New Abbey lies 8 miles from Dumfries, a defining feature of the village is the intriguing Sweetheart Abbey, and a recommended walk is from the abbey to Airds Point, just one of the fantastic walks on offer in this area. The ruined Cistercian abbey was founded by Lady Devorgilla in 1273 to commemorate the death of her husband John Balliol. On her death she was laid next to her husband’s embalmed heart and the monks named the abbey in memory of her. The village has a general store, village pub and a tea room as well as a watermill, the New Abbey Corn Mill, which is still in full working order and open to visitors. A popular walk just 2½ miles from New Abbey is to walk up to the summit of Criffel, a hump-backed hill that at 1871ft is the highest for miles around offering beautiful views of the surrounding area. Mabie Farm Park is just a short drive away and provides a great day out for children. Southerness and Sandyhills beaches are both a quick drive away too - Southerness has Scotland’s oldest lighthouse and Sandyhills has great caves and rockpools to provide hours of exploration. The area is also brilliant for mountain biking, golf, water sports and walking. Beach 14 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.. Ground Floor:
