Description

Anvil, Waterwheel and Forge Mill Cottage have all been tastefully restored from the old mill buildings and enjoy a unique riverside setting in a tranquil and peaceful wooded valley. Anvil and Waterwheel are delightful, ground floor apartments with views over Dalbeattie Burn and Forge Mill Cottage is quietly set a little further back. The main features in this delightful setting are the beautifully landscaped and secluded riverside gardens which surround the cottages, with Dalbeattie Burn tumbling past and the Mill Lade (stream) running through. Sit and relax in the many secluded spots and you might be lucky enough to see kingfishers, otters and red squirrels along with the herons and dippers. It truly is a place of peace and beauty.
The town centre of Dalbeattie is within walking distance of the cottages and the Solway Coast and the beautiful little coastal villages of Kippford and Rockcliffe are just a short drive away. Kippford is a scenic coastal village which offers an abundance of walks and has a public pier for boats. There is a National Trust path from Kippford to Rockcliffe, where there is a beautiful, sandy beach. Why not try the 7Stanes mountain biking courses at Dalbeattie Forest, the zip wire, and mountain balling at Laggan Outdoor, or enjoy the many historic castles, National Trust gardens and the RSPB sites the region has to offer. For the younger guests, there are ice cream farms and even a chocolate factory – plenty for the whole family to enjoy. Beach 5½ miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
Anvil (ref UK5814), Waterwheel (ref UK5815) and Forge Mill Cottage (ref UK5816) can be booked together to accommodate up to 7 guests.Anvil, Waterwheel and Forge Mill Cottage have all been tastefully restored from the old mill buildings and enjoy a unique riverside setting in a tranquil and peaceful wooded valley.

About the local area

The unspoilt beauty of this south west corner of Scotland is the perfect antidote to the hurly burly of modern life. Here there are deserted beaches, magnificent forests, rugged moors and beautiful lochs, all unblemished and untouched by tourism. But Dumfries and Galloway is not only perfect for chilled-out holidays, if you want a bit more action you can also find a range of activities and sports, from walking and cycling to golf and fishing.

To the west of the region is the quiet market town of Newton Stewart on the banks of the River Cree. This is a popular area for walkers and cyclists with open rolling countryside and close by to the Galloway Forest Park. In contrast with gentle scenery of the Solway Firth the Galloway Hills to the north has beautiful moors, mountains, lakes and rivers, with at its heart the Galloway Forest Park, some 150,000 acres of forest land with waymarked trails that are ideal for trekking and cyclists.

Formal gardens and country parks can be found throughout this area, the foremost of which is Threave Garden and Castle just south of Castle Douglas along the shores of Loch Carlingwark, renowned for its horticultural gardens and woodland covering some sixty acres. To the north of the town Loch Ken provides for more strenuous activities such as waterskiing, sailing and windsurfing.

To the south are the sandy coves and estuarine mudflats of the Solway Firth. The charming coastal resort of Kirckcudbright sits half way along the coast and was once a busy shipping port but now has a more tranquil atmosphere. Further east The Colvend coast has some lovely stretches of coastline and coastal villages providing moorings for visiting yachts and boat hire.

Inland on the River Nith, Dumfries is the regions largest town and a great base from which to explore the whole area. The town is also renowned for its associations with Robert Burns who spent the last five years of his life here.
