Jamestown Cottage

Charming traditional stone-built cottage

Double-glazed and electrically-heated

Open log fire

Enchanting and secluded upland location

Sleeps 4-5

Situated on a working hill farm


The south-facing sitting-room is furnished with large comfortable chairs around a traditional open log fire. There are two bright and warm bedrooms - one double with extra single bed and one twin-bedded room. The shower room has a power shower.

The emphasis is on comfort, with tiled floors and fitted carpets throughout. Framed prints on the walls are by local artists. There is a flat screen television and DVD player with good selection of DVDs. Books, maps and leaflets on local places of interest are provided.

The enclosed garden has a paved sitting area with garden furniture. Views from the cottage are of rolling unspoilt hills and grazing sheep.

"On your travels you sometimes come across places with their own magic. This is one of those few. This is Brigadoon."

Jamestown Cottage lies in the heart of the rolling Eskdale Hills just 10 miles north-west of Langholm. An established favourite with many guests, Jamestown provides an ideal setting for a relaxing holiday.

Enjoy stunning views from every window, watch amazing wildlife, learn about the year-round activities of a traditional hill farm, or simply explore the area at your leisure and come home to a cosy log fire.

The entrance hall leads into the fully fitted kitchen/dining room. Craftsman-built kitchen units incorporate a ceramic hob and fan oven, dishwasher and fridge. There is a separate well-equipped utility room with deep freeze.
