Ruthwell is a small village located between the towns of Annan and Dumfries on the Solway Firth in Dumfries and Galloway.

Annan is just seven miles away and offers traditional red stone buildings and a rich history of ship building and fishing, plus it is situated at the start of the Solway Coast Trail - a drive which takes you on quiet roads to a wealth of castles and abbeys.

We loved being on a small farm with chickens wandering around. We also enjoyed being able to use the wood burner in the evenings. This is a perfect accommodation and location for anyone with a dog. Our old black Labrador had a fabulous time.

Liked the rural location of the cottage yet with great access to Dumfries and mountain biking routes. The relaxed and friendly nature of the owners, and being able to come and go as we pleased. Wasn't a long enough holiday!

We could not have asked for better. Nothing to dislike.

This is a well looked after cottage in a quiet location. I'd recommend it for a short break!

Amazing conversion of former milking parlour to spacious cottage. Right in middle of farm with cockerels, considerately crowing at 9am, a friendly pony and a cute sheep. Location perfect for touring south west Scotland. We also had folding bikes and the area has lovely quiet country lanes for cycling, e.g. to Ruthwell village and Church (a must). Downsides - there is no Wi-Fi signal. On arrival we had to hoover up crumbs around the bed, clean the toilet, remove hairs from the bath, and clean some drawers.
