About this property
This semi-detached cottage rests alongside the owner's house, beside the river, and only six miles from the burgh of Langholm. Originally a water mill, this stone-built retreat has been renovated to a heart-warming standard, creating the perfect countryside getaway for couples, whatever the time of year. Take a moment to appreciate the idyllic location, then step into the cottage, where you will arrive at the sun room equipped with art materials and an easel, which continues through to a well-equipped kitchen. Boasting the perfect blend of modernised charm, you will feel right at home whilst dishing up those home cooked meals. Downlighters overlook the layout, and views of the garden create a pleasant backdrop to accompany a peaceful afternoon. The open-plan living area is really something special, a characterful base tied together with a sumptuous sofa, and a dining table for four people. Stonework and exposed beam cathedral ceiling bring an enchanting feel to the interior; so for a cosy evening, settle down with the woodburning stove ablaze and take it all in. Follow the tasteful spiral staircase up to the magnificent mezzanine bedroom, featuring Velux windows which you can open up to hear the calming sounds of the river flowing nearby. A separate dressing area and an en-suite with a spa bath, all add to the wow factor of this cosy set-up. Open fields grace the outside, ideal to take a stroll at your own leisure, or let the dog run around in the enclosed garden, whilst you relax on the seating area of your choice. The town hosts festivals for music, food and arts and the annual Common Riding draws many visitors. There is also a 9 hole golf course in Langholm and Buccleuch theatre close by. Within easy reach lies Lockerbie, home to a good selection of bars and shopping facilities, as well as a jazz festival. A short drive from Langholm in the River Esk Valley is the Kagyu Samye Ling, the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre established in the West. A one-of-a-kind cottage for you and your loved one.
