|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
A wonderful location in beautiful South West Scotland for a holiday to suit your individual needs. Whether you are looking for a family holiday or an intimate retreat, look no further than Laird House. Situated on a working sheep and beef farm there are plenty of opportunities to help out at certain times of year, including lambing time, and, with ponies to ride and free range goose, duck and hen eggs to collect, you will create memories of a carefree holiday. Laird House sits in an elevated position with stunning views over Annandale, from the Moffat Hills to the Solway Coast and beyond. Completed in 2009, the house is spacious and luxurious and fully accessible for disabled visitors with all rooms on the ground floor, including a family bedroom, with bunk beds if required, and a games area.
We are a farming family who enjoy the countryside and the very many benefits of living and working in Dumfries and Galloway.
Our other passion is skiing and we have combined our ideal ski holiday destination with our holiday let experience for you also to enjoy.
Angela Ross purchased this cottage in 2009
We are all born and bred in the local area and know every last square inch like the back of our hands. We cannot rate Dumfriesshire highly enough for visitors and can recommend days out to suit any age - all of which have been tried and tested by our own family first!
The cottage is a labour of love and has been converted from our old dairy. Most of the renovation work was done ourselves and we have some excellent testimonials from guests returning again and again.
Laird House is a mere 10 minute drive from the main M74 connecting England and Scotland. We are in a quiet rural location however the nearby town of Lochmaben (1 mile) has all the amenities you will ever need. Together with a bakers shop, post office, italian ice-cream cafe and greengrocers there is also the local sailing club, golf course, a few pubs and you will be within a 10 minute drive of many of the 7Stanes mountain bike trails. We could go on and on however check our website for more information.

The cottage is well equipped and beautifully laid out. Angie and her family made us feel very welcome. A lovely area to visit with great views and lots of places to visit. Although the highlight of the break for my 7 year old was feeding the horses, ducks and playing with the dogs on the farm!!
The Lairds House is a fantastic holiday cottage. We spent a lovely week there. The open plan living area is great and all with under floor heating, which was a brilliant area for our newly walking little boy. The kitchen has everything that you could possibly need. Both the bedrooms are very spacious and extremely comfortable. It was lovely to stay in a working farm and being able to go around the farm and see all the animals is brilliant. Overall this is a wonderful place to stay and the surrounding area is fantastic to explore.
Our stay was amazing Angie and Andy and family are very friendly helpful and amazing place to stay vey quiet and child friendly the views was beautiful we had a really great holiday and defently will be coming back this was our second stay can't wait come next year already booked thankyou for amazing holiday
Just returned from our 4th visit, 5th already booked for September 2015 and will then plan 2016 visits. House is just like the title but with the benefits of no ringing doorbells or telephone calls. The Location, views and surounding areas are all worth the visit alone. The new walkway around Castle Loch is worth a visit and also Dock Park in Dumfies. The Hightae Inn is well worth a visit for an excellent meal.
Lastly do not forget to watch the stars, according to Angie their is an App you an get on your I-Pad which names the stars when held up to the sky. Thanks to the Ross family for another excellent Holiday.
Laird House is a great family cottage in a really nice rural location.
The Property had everything we needed, (as described in the listing) we made good use of the washing machine and dishwasher, as well as the WIFI, which came in handy for planning day trips, and posting photos!
The property was clean and well maintained, and the owners were friendly and helpful.
The area is rich with activities for days out, and we left feeling that we could easily have spent an extra week.
We loved the beaches at Sandyhills and Rockliffe, but everyone's favourite day out was the Cream of Galloway Ice Cream Factory. Here the family can enjoy not only fantastic ice cream but lots of outdoor activities including "Go Boing" and a quality (pedal) Go Kart Course.
We would (and already have) recommended this holiday to anyone.
