The Byre

Accommodation Details

Relax and unwind in our lovely new Byre conversion, spacious and comfortable, modern yet full of character set on an organic farm amid the beautiful rolling countryside of South West Scotland. Open all year. A warm friendly welcome awaits you with underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs and a wood burning stove in the living room. It has its own garden and large patio, complete with picnic table and barbeque.

The Byre is an ideal place to relax in peace and quiet and yet is still within easy reach of the many attractions Dumfries and Galloway has to offer.

The Byre, as the name suggests, used to house and milk 40 cows and has recently been converted to a contemporary three bedroom cottage. The cottage sleeps from 1 to 8 people, with extra capacity on a sofa bed in the studio.

The tariff is from £ 250 to £ 600 per week, normally from Friday to Friday, the price depending on the number staying and the time of year.

The Byre is well situated for exploring Dumfries and Galloway, being 10 miles north of Dumfries, the last home of Robert Burns, and 20 miles from Castle Douglas.
