Greenhead Cottage is a semi-detached cottage set in tranquil countryside with delightful views and close to the lovely village of Thornhill. The cottage adjoins the owner’s home and is beautifully presented, a particular feature is the large conservatory with a wood burner, overlooking the garden and wildlife pond, so perfect for any time of year. The garden and pond attract many natural visitors; garden birds, stoats, young pheasants, squirrels, frogs, toads, newts and even hares. The living room is warm and cosy, again with a lovely wood burner and to top it all, there is a secluded hydrotherapy spa for massaging the day’s activities away, the garden! The resident red kites can be viewed from the house, garden and spa, along with red squirrels, nuthatches, treecreepers, wagtails, woodpeckers and many other beautiful birds. Or perhaps you just want to sit in the conservatory, or in the garden and gaze at the Milky Way and constellations which are visible on clear, starry nights. The owner also offers on-site yoga lessons and treatments, including Indian Head Massage and Kinetic Chain Release (a full body, physiotherapy treatment) to really allow you to get the most from your visit.
Greenhead Cottage is set in a rural location in the beautiful Nith Valley in Dumfriesshire. There is a choice of activities locally to suit all ages, including walking, cycling, golfing, fishing and birdwatching. Enjoy a round of golf at the local 18-hole course in Thornhill, or if fishing is your thing, the River Nith provides numerous areas to fish for salmon and trout (licence required). Drumlanrigg Castle and Gardens, Morton Castle, Ellisland (once home to Robert Burns), and world class mountain biking routes, the 7stanes, are all on your doorstep, along with many popular walking routes and lochs.
20 minutes south is the town of Dumfries with lots of attractions to keep the whole family entertained, from farm parks, swimming, ice skating, art centres and, of course, retail therapy. Further afield take a trip to the Galloway Forest Park, one of the darkest places in the UK, in fact the UK’s first Dark Sky Park. A visit to this area of south west Scotland would not be complete without a day trip to the rugged coastline and seaside, with visits to the quaint villages and towns such as Kippford, Sandyhills, Southerness and Kirkcudbright. Shops, pubs and restaurants 2 miles.
