Holmhill Steading Cottage is a 2 bedroom self catering holiday cottage located in the beautiful Dumfries and Galloway countryside. Whilst the location is rural, the village of Thornhill is only a 10 minute walk (or 2 minute drive) from the cottage. The villages of Penpont, Dunscore and Moniaive are also an easy drive, and the historic town of Dumfries is only about 15 miles away.
The cottage is a sympathetic conversion of an historic courtyard building providing modern self contained living space, and an outside area with glorious views to the nearby Keir Hills. It sits in the grounds of Holmhill House which extend to 8 acres of garden, woodland, and paddock. The owners, Rosie and Stewart Lee, operated Holmhill House as a 5 star Bed and Breakfast until 2019.The Holmhill grounds, and the surrounding countrside offer great scope for walks, long and short. The walk upstream on the banks of the nearby River Nith is our favourite. Holmhill Steading Cottage is a dog friendly destination, although we do not normally allow guests to bring more than 2 dogs.
The cottage accommodation includes two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other with an adjacent bathroom. These are complimented by a large open plan living, dining, kitchen room (6.5m x 4m). This room also has french doors to a large terrace area made from the sandstone which formed the floor of the original building, and a wood burning stove for extra warmth and atmosphere. The cottage is ideal for a family or a party of four - the bedrooms are normally set up with superking beds, but one of them can be set up as twin beds instead if requested in advance. Free WiFi is available.
The normal let period is a week from Saturday to Saturday. Shorter let periods, or weeks starting on days other than Saturday are also possible.
