Milnhead Cottage certainly has that ’chocolate box’ appeal and is a delightful country cottage set in a beautiful rural corner of Dumfries and Galloway. This charming cottage is a little bigger than it looks as it was once six dwellings accommodating a miller, his workers, animals and the grain store; it offers bags of space for family and friends to enjoy. The mill (attached to Milnhead Cottage) fell into disrepair, but was converted in 1993 and is now the home of the cottage owners David and Sandra. The two properties share a driveway.

The spacious living room, with its cosy wood burner, is the perfect place to sit and unwind after a day exploring and the kitchen has everything you would need to enjoy your stay while preparing meals. With a dining room and a breakfast room there are options to make your mealtimes here as informal or formal as you like! Set all on the ground floor, three good sized bedrooms, a modern bathroom with waterfall shower and separate shower room along with a large utility room (perfect for your four-legged friends) complete this charming property.

Milnhead Cottage, with its wonderful gardens where there are many spots to sit and enjoy the wildlife in this lovely rural location, is within 5 minutes’ drive of the ancient Royal Burgh of Dumfries with easy access to all amenities in the town. The town has many gems to discover including numerous museums, the Camera Obscura, Robert Burns’ house or mausoleum. Scotland’s most famous poet spent the last years of his life here, explore the house and gardens that inspired J M Barrie’s Peter Pan. For the younger members of your family, Dalscone Farm Park is just along the road where you can meet all the animals and play in the farm park where you can enjoy bumper boats, bouncy castles, go-karts or play mini golf. Ideally located for touring this beautiful area, and just a stone’s throw from the Solway Coast where you can explore some of the stunning 200 miles or so of coastline, dramatic cliff top walks, secluded little bays and sandy beaches and delightful little coastal villages.

With many and varied attractions in the area you will be spoilt for choice, from interesting historical sites throughout the region, supreme mountain biking at the world renowned 7Stanes at Mabie, to challenging hill walks and some of the darkest skies in the world.
