The Tower House

Scotland: Dumfries and Galloway: Throughgate

Unique property in rural location

The Tower House, a listed building, provides self-catering holiday accommodation in a former toll house, built in the 1800s. The cottage has recently been refurbished to a high standard with accommodation comprising lounge, kitchen/dining room, double bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom. The beautiful south facing garden provides a delightful setting in which to enjoy your holiday, with splendid views across open countryside. Throughgate is a small hamlet close to the village of Dunscore, which is a short walk away and has a Post Office and a play park. The Tower House provides an ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside and for walking in Scotland's southern uplands. For cyclists, the cottage is perfectly located for 3 of the 7 Stanes mountain bike centres. Nearby Thornhill, a beautiful village, offers a number of shops and banks. The larger town of Dumfries, is just 9 miles away and offers a wide range of facilities including swimming pool and museums.
