What we love

Burnside is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Rigg on a country lane close to the world famous Gretna Green. The location is ideal as it is only minutes from the main A75 and M6 so absolutely perfect for exploring the area. Burnside has been refurbished in 2018 and is an attractive Galloway cottage all on the one level and has delightful enclosed gardens, ideal for your dog. Whilst you are enjoying the evening sunshine, also enjoy the views of the Cumbrian hills from the garden too. Burnside is just under 2 miles from Gretna Green, one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations due to its romantic wedding traditions dating back to the 1700s. Possibly the most romantic village in the UK, it has become synonymous with romance and runaway couples. Marriage ceremonies are still performed over a blacksmith’s anvil and Gretna Green attracts thousands of couples from all around the world to be married each year.
It is easy to overlook that there is more to this area than weddings. Ideally placed to not only explore Dumfries and Galloway it is also within easy reach of the Scottish Borders, Hadrian’s Wall, the fells of the Lake District National Park and much more. A stay at Burnside would not be complete without a day’s shopping at Gretna Green Outlet Village, and a must is a trip to the nearby Devil’s Porridge Museum where you can learn the story of how this area flourished into a hub of wartime activity. There is also access to the Solway Coast just 2 miles away, ideal for walking your four-legged friend, although the beach is only accessible at low tide. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Stayed for 2 weeks in January and the reason it has not scored more highly is that with the storage heating I found Burnside quite cold at times. Everything in Burnside was in excellent condition and there was nothing I thought missing. The garden was great for my dogs - a good size and with secure boundaries. The extra small touches such as the welcome pack for me and one for my dogs were very welcome! NB: Local amenities were in Gretna which you need to drive to but that is not something that is within the owners control and easily noted if you look online.

    We enjoyed our stay at Burnside Cottage. Its very clean and comfortable. The location is very good for getting out for walks in the area. Very quiet and peaceful. Just outside Gretna Green which is why we booked this cottage as we were there for a wedding perfect.
