Beyond that you have acres and acres of countryside to explore on the farm - fields, woods, rivers, burns, ponds and tracks. You can help feed chickens, lambs (depending on season) and you can go quad biking, tractor or 4x4 driving. The fishing (salmon, sea trout and trout) attracts anglers from around the World. Its the venue of the renowned SalmonSchool.com.
Well behaved pets are welcome and it is dog walking heaven around the farm. Open all year, it is a must for anyone who enjoys the countryside. Anyway its more than just accommodations its a real countryside experience.

About the Owner
Hi I'm Anthony Steel and along with my family, we have owned and run Kirkwood farm for 150 years. See Kirkwood-Lockerbie.co.uk. We offer RealFarmHolidays here at Kirkwood - totally genuine countryside experiences. We can take guests around the farm on quad bike rides, 4x4 or tractor driving. You will see sheep and cattle, and huge quantities of wildlife - deer, red squirrels, badgers, otters, just to name a few.
Our speciality is salmon and sea trout fishing. World Class.
You can feed lambs, chickens and collect eggs. You may forage for mushrooms or wild fruits. You may just enjoy walking in lush fields and beautiful oak woods.
There's a great team at Kirkwood...Sam helps in the office (taking bookings and meeting guests). Iain is maintenance while Tom is busy on the farm.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Thank you for a lovely weekend. We had a really good time. The Farmhouse was wonderful. I love the way it has been renovated, it really felt like a home from home."
"Our full party found the accommodation excellent - your property is of a very high standard"
"We were both very impressed with what has been done to the house, it offers the highest level of comfort plus style. I thought the lush gardens and surrounding natural grassy areas were particularly nice, ideal for children to explore and hide in, I also made use of the wonderful herb garden."
From the Owner
“Kirkwood has been owned by my family for generations. We love it because of the peace and quiet. The scenery is beautiful, from our office window we often see red squirrels running up and down the trees and out of the other window we've filmed the roe deer on the lawn.”

From the Owner
“We enjoy such remoteness and yet we are lucky as we are only 5 minutes from the motorway. There is also a pub in the village a 10 minute walk from the cottages which has Thai food so this is very handy for us as well as our guests! We are also 5 minutes drive from surrounding towns so it's never far to go.”
