Scottish Cottages

The Scottish Regional Specialist - Fantastic properties in the most favourable locations. No one knows Scotland better!


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

The large spacious farmhouse is reached by a ¼ 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 coarse 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.

    Lovely place in a wonderful situation and hosts are very welcoming and helpful. Could have done with a little more heating ( though we were there mid February) and lighting in the evening

    We had a lovely restful time. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this cottage. Our dogs had a great time too. We have been to this cottage before and will definitely use it again. It is a real home from home and very comfortable. Everything you need had been thought about and is there. A lovely break

    What a gorgeous holiday let. It felt like visiting a favourite Aunt or a good friend --a house with a real personality, but gloriously comfortable. Loads of pretty touches, but it didn't feel fussy or over-primped. The surrounding countryside was amazing, with excellent dog walks and bird watching for those of us who liked that, while the rest could stay at home enjoying the peace of the beautifully decorated conservatory or bake up a storm in the kitchen--a really well-appointed kitchen with little we couldn't find. We had quite frightful weather, but the house was gloriously warm, the Aga became a real centre of activity in the early evening. And what a luxury to have two family rooms, so that half of us could watch movies while the others worked a jig-saw in the second room. The owners were nearby, but not hovering. Do get the fresh-laid eggs, they were delicious, and my husband loved the fountain pen he brought home.

    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.
