About this property
Set in the charming village of Wanlockhead, close to Leadhills, in Scotland, is this old miner’s property, Kellocks Cottage. This heart-warming retreat has been extensively renovated into a stylish and contemporary base for couples. Entering the property, be welcomed into an inviting open-plan living space, complete with a sofa and armchair where you can curl up with your partner whilst the roaring woodburning stove encased in a delightful brick inglenook fireplace keeps you nice and toasty. Tune into the TV for your favourite evening shows; or break open the popcorn and indulge in a romantic movie. Gather at the dining table for a hearty breakfast whilst planning the day's events, or use this as a quiet space for some reading. The kitchen itself has glossy cream units and sleek wooden worktops housing all the necessary appliances for cooking, whilst still retaining some of its character with exposed brick tiles as feature walls. The charm continues in the ground-floor shower room with its feature slate walls, paying homage to the cottage's miner history. As the evening draws to a close, retire to the king-size bedroom which comes with all the furniture needed for storing your personal belongings and matching bedside tables and lamps for some late night reading, its velux windows showcasing the wide, expansive countryside surroundings, the perfect idyllic setting to wake up to each morning. There is a small enclosed gravelled area to the rear which has plenty of seating so you can enjoy the fresh country air with a refreshing beverage or dine alfresco. Kellocks Cottage is in the highest village in Scotland, home to a delightful pub called Wanlockhead Inn, whilst the nearest convenience store can be found in Leadhills for all the essentials, as well as even more pubs to choose from and the wonderful attractions of Britain's highest golf course, facilities for fly fishing. With gold panning in the burns, the village of Wanlockhead is home to the annual Scottish and British Gold Panning Championships - gold panning has been a popular activity for visitors in this area, as large nuggets of gold have been found by some very shocked gold panning enthusiasts to date! If you're looking for places to shop, visit the towns of Biggar and Moffat, as well as Dumfries, or for a spot of history Drumlanrig Castle and County Estate is perfect for those outdoor enthusiasts to get involved with walking, cycling and fishing. Venture further afield to discover the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh for all matters of attractions to suit all tastes, or simply soak up the beauty of the surrounding area from your charming holiday home.
