Property code: 51665

Semi-detached cottage with private hot tub, fully enclosed mature garden and seating area enjoying wonderful views, ideal for children and dogs, and within a short stroll of excellent local amenities.

Nestled in a peaceful private position with magnificent views over the picture post card town of Moffat and the splendid surrounding rolling hills. The town’s main street is just a short walk from the property and boasts an array of local and quirky shops, friendly pubs and numerous eateries. There is also a very interesting museum, 18 hole golf course and the beautiful station park, with its boating lake, putting green and water feature, perfect place to enjoy a family picnic. Moffat is also recognised as a location designated as part of the International dark-sky places programme due to the Northern lights and stars which have been seen from the town, an evening in the hot tub star gazing is just magical!  Enjoy a trip to Grey Mares Tail a mesmerising waterfall plunging 60m leading to Loch Skeen and eventually to White Comb and the Devil's Beef Tub, a dramatic 500ft hollow in the hills north of Moffat.

The pretty garden leads you up two steps into the charming single storey cottage where you enter the hallway, through to the light and bright lounge enjoying splendid rolling hill views, with TV/DVD, Bluetooth speaker and large dining table perfect for family gatherings. Continuing back through the hallway you will find the well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and gas hob, fridge, freezer, washing machine, microwave and seating area. From the hallway is the single bedroom, twin bedroom and the double bedroom all enjoying either rear garden or rolling hill views. Finally, is the stylish bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Venturing outside into the fully enclosed garden, you will find the wonderful covered hot tub ideal for relaxing after a day out exploring, and a seating area perfect for alfresco dining and lazy evenings star gazing over the wonderful rolling hills. There is a handy bike store available too. Ample off-road parking is available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The area surrounding the cottage is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts with walks to suit all ages and abilities. Enjoy an early evening stroll along the banks of the River Annan that flows alongside the town, wander through the towering trees of Tank Wood or walk up Gallow Hill for views over Annandale. Follow the river out of town for a challenging walk to the Devil's Beef Tub (5 miles), a striking hollow in the mountain landscape historically used by thieves and renegades as a hideout. Not to be missed is the incredible 60-metre cascade of Grey Mare's Tail (9 miles), one of the UK's highest waterfalls. Watch peregrine falcons swoop and soar above the water as you walk to the waterfall and into the fells beyond.

Moffat is a thriving market town with a rich history and heritage. Visit the informative Moffat Museum to discover the story of the town from Roman times to present day, browse the independent stores making sure you pick up some famous Moffat toffee, or dine in one of the town's restaurants and cafes. Take a swan boat out on the lake at Station Park, wander through the attractive gardens or challenge your family to a competition on the 18-hole putting green. Pack a picnic for a wildlife-spotting stroll around Earshaig Lochans Nature Reserve (4.5 miles). Follow the sculpture trail, try your hand at pond-dipping and spot birds of prey and roe deer as you wander around the tranquil lochans.

If you don't mind a 51-mile drive, it's well worth it to explore Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. Gaze on the Scottish Crown Jewels at Edinburgh Castle, situated on its hilltop location in the centre of the city, visit the Queen's official Scottish residence, Holyrood Palace, see the throne room and state apartments and stroll the colourful gardens. Purchase traditional Scottish wares on the Royal Mile and wander the cobbled streets of the West End.
