Flordes Cottage In the heart of Leadhills village (Lowther Hills)

Overview

Property

Updated: 27-Nov-2016
Fancy a romantic break in the heart of Leadhills?

Get back to the peace and tranquillity of village life with no interruptions. Enjoy cosy nights in with a beautiful log fire when it's chilly, or a walk in the hills of the Southern Uplands.

Flordes Cottage is a spacious single-storey accommodation in Leadhills - Scotland's second-highest village. It is ideal for couples, and has been designed and furnished with adults in mind. For that reason we cannot take bookings for children. The cottage is centrally heated (by oil) and also has a wood-burning stove. Bedding and towels are included, as are electricity and heating costs, along with a basket of logs for the wood-burning stove. There is also private parking for one car. This is a non-smoking property and we're sorry but we cannot accommodate pets.

The Living space comprises:

* Lounge: with 2 sofas (one of which converts to a bed), log burning stove and a TV.

* Dining Kitchen: with table and chairs, electric cooker, microwave, large fridge/freezer, toaster and kettle

* Bedroom: with double bed, wardrobe and drawers for storage

* Bathroom: with bath and electric shower, wash basin and loo.

Leadhills offers tranquillity, along with a variety of outdoor pursuits and visitor attractions, and is ideally located for touring central and southern Scotland. The village is about 1300 feet above sea level and its close neighbour, Wanlockhead, is Scotland's highest village at just over 1500 feet. You can travel on the highest adhesion narrow-guage railway, play golf on the highest golf course in Scotland, enjoy walks on the Southern Upland Way (or in the surrounding countryside), visit the historic lead mine or enjoy fishing and shooting in season. There is also an annual gold-panning competition in Wanlockhead and visitors can participate during the summer months. A new attraction for winter is the newly-opened ski slope. Leadhills sits in the Lowther Hills and is just half-an-hour's drive from junctions 13 or 14 on the M74. It is ideally situated for visiting Drumlanrig Castle, the forests and coast of Dumfries and Galloway, the towns of Biggar, Moffat or Dumfries, Lanark and the New Lanark Mills, and the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The owner lives in Cleveleys,Lancashire, but the changeover and access are managed by a local resident.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Is a good size property and had all we required. Tidy and very clean. The only thing I would say is that the butterflies and extra bits were not to our taste and am sure it would make it easier to clean without those as they are really not needed in a holiday property. Just a thought!





Take care and thanks again.

Perfect place to hide away

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well equiped, nicely furnished, and is well maintained and loved by its owners, making it a pleasure to stay in. The village is lovely, the banter at the pub and shop is friendly and everyone says hello and makes you feel welcome. The walks from the cottage are endless and the peace and quiet is perfect.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying in Flordes Cottage. The house is really nice, a good size for a one bed but cosy at the same time. It's very well equipped, has decent wifi and it was nice to get a welcome basket with chocolates and a bottle of wine on our arrival. Would book again.
