About McMurdoston Holiday Cottages

Only fifteen minutes from Dumfries and yet in an incredibly peaceful setting, Swift and Swallow Cottages are semi-detached, sleep up to 4 in each and make perfect little places to get away from it all.

Just across the quiet courtyard from the owners’ house stands McMurdoston’s old granary, recently converted into two welcoming self-contained holiday cottages. Both Swift Cottage and Swallow Cottage are fully centrally-heated and double-glazed, making them snug and cosy whatever the weather. They each comfortably sleep up to four adults, with a well-equipped bathroom and second, separate WC. A fantastic decked patio area to the rear provides a relaxing spot for bird-watching, enjoying an outdoor meal, or simply relishing the wonderful view over the Nith Valley.

Each cottage has parking for up to two cars, a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, a neat wood-burning-effect electric stove and small flat-screen TV/DVD. You’ll find a hallway and downstairs cloakroom for coats and boots as you enter the cottages. The open-plan kitchen and sitting room are carefully designed to give you as much flexibility as possible, with lots of storage space and the usual gadgets you’d expect to cook some wonderful holiday meals. A versatile dining table and chairs allows as much space as you need and there’s an inviting sofa, armchair and an upholstered window seat to relax in. We’ll even provide the basics so you can enjoy hot drinks on arrival!

Upstairs there’s a generous double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and comfy chairs from which to bird-/wildlife-watch and a twin bedroom designed with star-gazers in mind. The lovely bright bathroom provides a shower-over-bath, vanity unit with shaver socket, oodles of hot water and WC. All linen and towels are supplied free of charge.

Sorry – strictly no pets or smokers.
