Oak Cottage

Thornhill 2.2 miles. Resting in the quiet town of Thornhill, within the Dumfries and Galloway area of Scotland, is this traditional white stone cottage. Boasting many contemporary furnishings and a lovely light décor inside, this property makes for an excellent base for couples. Entering the property, you will discover a stylish sitting room, where you and your loved one can curl up on the plush sofa and catch up on the day’s events. The dining area has plenty of seating for enjoying a delicious meal whilst you toast to a wonderful holiday with a sparkling glass of champagne. Walk through to the kitchen which has been fitted to a high-standard and houses all the appliances you could need to rustle up some home-cooked meals. Follow the steps up to the first floor and discover one double bedroom, boating quality linens and served by a deluxe, ground floor shower room. Take a warm cup of tea out to the multi-level decking area, where you can sit out in the morning and read a good book whilst the sun rises. The small village of Penpont is ideally placed for accessing many of Scotland's finest sites. Historically notable Kier Mill is just 1.5 miles away from Oak Cottage - great if you love a bit of history, as this is where Scottish blacksmith Kirkpatrick Macmillan invented the first pedal-driven bicycle. For a spot of history Drumlanrig Castle is an excellent choice, situated in stunning country grounds and a category A listed building. For further attractions, venture into the market town of Dumfries for an extensive range of attractions, some of which include Dumfries Museum. Set in an 18th century windmill, you can gaze through the Camera Obscura for some far-reaching views. Choose to dine in one of the traditional Scottish pubs or restaurants if you don’t fancy cooking one evening, and explore the local stores to grab any necessities. Look forward to exploring this rural area and join one of its nearby walking or cycling trails for a long wander with your pet in the morning. Oak Cottage provides an exceptional base for couples looking for a romantic escape.

One bedroom: 1 x king-size. Ground-floor shower room with shower, basin and WC. Kitchen. Living/dining room.
