There is something I love about escaping from the city and venturing back home, which (home) is located in Dumfries and Galloway Scotland.
A small seaside boat town, disconnected from so much and with very little service, is exactly what I need after some stressful days or months in the city. This amazing little cottage, which over 100 years ago used to be a fisherman’s home, is now a 3 bedroom, 6 sleeping cottage with a sea front view. (Literally!) Introducing…
I tend to take the train from Waverley station and get off at Lockerbie only taking under 1 hour then I would grab a taxi which will take about an hour. We always us PA Taxis, they are so friendly so nice and reasonably priced! So not driving I defo recommend them!
I like to think of coming here as a chance to recharge, detox and feel at home There isn’t too much to do here apart from relax eat, drink and long walks through the woods. Perfect for small family getaways and doggy lovers. Which is perfect, there is wifi so when needed to check up on things thats accessible, but its so relaxed and quiet, the cottage is so comfy and cosy having been refurbished and been taken care of by such amazing supporters! 24/7 support and help, and friendly family and home touches.
My sister has been living in this town for just over three years now, and my family has always had this cottage here for over 32 years. With my international background, it’s always been difficult to know where home is, but there’s something about this place that makes me feel so comforted.
Living here, you need to have a car as everything is far away from each other. The closest next little town is a town called Dalbeattie. But as mentioned, PA Taxis are happy and at hand. What I tend to do is stop at Tescos, stock up and snuggle in for the week, or head to the local pub down the road, which is no longer than a 3-minute walk. It’s a small commute, great food, local sports and lovely service. This is the Anchor and Mariner! You can’t go wrong with good fish and chips!
Check out the website for more information, photos, things to do and places you need to visit! It’s about a 35-minute drive to Dumfries Drive, the home of Calvin Harris. I sometimes come up here for only three days and end up staying for almost two weeks at a time. Before I head back to the crazy city and lifestyle I lead in the center of Edinburgh (now Malta), Everybody needs a place to relax, and if I’m not in Malta or Edinburgh, I will most probably be here!
Home away for home! Enquire now, books up months in advance, so be sure to get in!
