Church Cottage is a charming, little mid-terraced cottage in the quiet village of Ecclefechan, nestling in the east of Dumfries and Galloway and within easy reach of the border to the south. The cottage has been completely renovated and refurbished in 2018, and has been furnished to a very good standard throughout. The modern kitchen overlooks the enclosed rear garden, and a particularly attractive feature is the large wood burner set in inglenook fireplace with exposed chimney breast. The cottage is cosy and comfortable, and an ideal base for exploring the delights of the area.
The village of Ecclefechan has shops, pubs and restaurants, and with the comfort of Church Cottage, you may not need to explore too far. Ecclefechan’s most enduring claim to fame is as the birthplace in 1795 of Thomas Carlyle, the poet and author. The cottage that he lived in as a child, today houses a recreation of an 1800s cottage and is run as a museum by the National Trust for Scotland, perhaps why the village has a slight feel of somewhere rather left behind by history. However, what the village is more famous for is probably the Ecclefechan tart, a taste not to be missed! Beach 7½ miles. Shop and pub serving food 200 yards, restaurant 5 miles.
