Once the stable block and grooms quarters to the elegant main house this spacious property is easily accessible

Holmhill Steading Cottage was once the stable block and groom’s quarters to the elegant main house, but now offers a perfectly cosy and beautifully appointed country retreat. As a base it is unbeatable as Thornhill lies at the junction of the A76 Dumfries to Kilmarnock and A702 New Galloway to Edinburgh roads in the mid section of the beautiful Nith Valley in Dumfriesshire. This lovely holiday cottage has been lovingly restored and has every comfort on hand to ensure your stay is perfect. It is no surprise that Visit Scotland has awarded Holmhill Steading Cottage a 4 star rating. The private terrace is just the ticket for planning your day over a cup of coffee and as the sun set’s reliving the perfect day over a few glasses of wine as you breathe in the captivating views. Holmhill, dating from around 1760, has quite a history as the first recorded occupant was Charles Douglas and his family. The house was ’left to him in liferent’ by the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry. Close by is the magnificent Drumlanrig Castle, home to the Duke.

    It was a lovely cottage and we enjoyed talking to our hosts. It had everything we needed and even a couple of dogs to visit with us when we came back every day as we were missing ours left at home.
