This well-appointed farmhouse is set in a picturesque location 6 miles west of Dumfries.

The large spacious farmhouse is reached by a 1/4 mile private drive, adjoining the owner’s house. One of the major benefits of living at Auchenfranco is its location; we feel very privileged to be there and hope you will feel the same when you come to stay. Although the farmhouse could probably accommodate  twice the number of visitors, we have deliberately set the maximum occupation at 4 adults in order to preserve the atmosphere of unhurried tranquillity, with space to relax and chill, away from the stresses of everyday life. The farmhouse benefits from a country style kitchen/diner, 2 lounges all with views across paddocks with woodland/reedbeds and hills beyond. Off the main lounge is the conservatory and patio area which gets the afternoon/ evening sun, perfect for afternoon tea or a glass of wine whilst barbecuing. A short walk across a field takes you through our private woodland/reedbed (around 10 acres) down to Lochrutton Loch. The habitat supports a wide range of species of  birds & animals, buzzards, woodpeckers, swallows, waterfowl, deer, badgers, bats to name a few, you never know what you might spot! There is course fishing on the Loch, free of charge to guests - just bring your rods. Auchenfranco is 6 miles west of Dumfries, ideally located for the world class 7Stanes mountain bike trails of Mabie, Dalbeattie and Ae forests, close to WWT Caerlaverock wetland centre and RSPB Mersehead nature reserve on the Solway Firth

    We have stayed in many cottages, this rates as the best to date. We would highly recomend the cottage to anyone who enjoys spacious living accommodation away from the hussle and bustle of city life.

    Hi, Ray andI had a lovely, relaxing holiday at Auchenfranco. It is in a great location for everything we wanted to do. The farmhouse suited us down to the ground. Loved the Aga. everywhere was spotlessly clean and everything we could wish for and more. We have stayed in some super cottages over the years and this rates with the best of them. We really appreciated all the reading material.!! We loved the walk down to the loch and all the wildlife, plus your dog and cats - made my holiday. We shall definitely recommend you to our friends and shall certainly be back. Thank-you Jane and Martin for all your help on our morning of difficulty. Very satisfied holiday-makers. Thank you, Ray and May.

    A lovely, large, comfortable house, in a stunning, quiet location. We found the house to be spotlessly clean and the best equipped we have stayed in. The Aga in the kitchen made it a very welcoming room to gather in after a long walk. Jane and Matt were most welcoming and helpful (and their chickens give the best eggs ever). Plenty of local information on walks and places to visit and visitors have added useful comments in the Visitors' Book. The two double bedrooms (one double bed and two singles), are very spacious, as are the two bathrooms. These both have baths but there is a shower room downstairs, which was great for 4 people sharing the accommodation. Loads of cupboard/storage and board games are provided, along with numerous books of all descriptions.
