Holiday Rental House
Please note that this Cottage is shared with me - the owner. 150 year old classic Scottish Cottage, whose original purpose as the dwelling for the Head Gardner at the Threave House Estate in which it stands. Large palatial garden with many rare species attest to his past presence and while I have maintained that, I have also added facilities to view the many forms of local wildlife. Red Squirrels are frequent visitors, with both Badger and Fox nighttime feeders. Woodpecker, Nuthatch and Pine Marten have also been seen here. The Cottage is located both right next to NTS attraction - Threave Gardens - and is on the main estate walk to Threave Castle. ...Please note that this Cottage is shared with me - the owner. 150 year old classic Scottish Cottage, whose original purpose as the dwelling for the Head Gardner at the Threave House Estate in which it stands.

You were excellent guests and the number of inquires that have come, some through Trip Advisor, since this review has been published has been very gratifying after all the effort that I have put in. Most of the money from this will be fed back...More
