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.

    We loved our stay and me my partner and baby and doggy were made welcome the minute we got there .. Nothing was to much for them and the shortbread they brought over was amazing. The views were amazing and the cottage felt like home which is always important to us when travelling with our baby .... We all slept very well and the showers were brilliant and powerful .... Lovely owners and will defo be going again! Thanks again x

    Comfortable and cosy cottage within walking distance of Thornhill. Convenient for salmon fishing on the River Nith. Friendly, helpful owners. Would certainly recommend, and hopefully return.

    Beautiful cottage - so pretty. 1st impression upon arrival was Wow! Very well equipped kitchen. Lounge very comfortable and good wifi a plus. The bedrooms were very comfortable and both a real haven of peace. Ensuite showers of very good proportions and both superb. Cottage finished to a high level and just wish I'd booked it for longer! Thornhill village close by for anything you've forgotten and Drumlanrig a very short drive away. Very well placed for exploring the Borders. The owners are so welcoming [as are the dogs] and available should you need them. Would definitely recommend and intend to return some time in the future.
