The Flat offers comfortable and cosy accommodation for two in the heart of the friendly village of Glencaple - five miles south of Dumfries. Built in the early 19th century it has recently been renovated to a high standard.
Living room has a wood burning stove. Kitchen is well equipped and bathroom has a luxurious double shower. Free WiFi. Bedlinen and towels are provided.
The accommodation is well-designed to make the most of its rather quirky layout (see floorplan on our website). There is a small south-facing garden with gardrn furniture and a shed to lock up bikes.
There is a bus service into Dumfries but a car or bikes are essential to make the most of the area. Parking is available directly outside the Flat.
Situated on the Burns and Solway Coast Heritage Trails and only 4 miles from the Wildfowl and Wetlands Reserve at Caerlaverock and a 40 minute drive from the RSPB Reserve at Mersehead.
In winter flocks of Barnacle Geese fly past your window morning and evening and other geese, waders and ducks can be seen on the river opposite the house. In summer Ospreys nest nearby. Otters are often spotted nearby and in summertime porpoises and seals have been seen in the river. This area is a nature-lover's paradise. Also well-placed for gentle walking, cycling, fishing, sightseeing and relaxing. There are lovely beaches only half an hour's drive away and Caerlaverock Castle is nearby.
Glencaple has a busy shop and tearoom and a popular hotel which serves lunches and dinners to non-residents all year round (take-aways available). Dumfries has a wide selection of good restaurants.
