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.
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.
