The space
** As you can see from our reviews we always deep clean after every guest however where’s possible we are going to take measures to block days out in between guests stays to ensure the place is aired and deep cleaned giving the accommodation time to stay empty until the UK becomes COVID free **

As you enter through the stable door there is a porch for shoes and coats. To the left there is a shower room with WC, ideal if you’re muddy from the outdoors or if the upstairs bathroom is being used. The newly furnished kitchen has a range cooker, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washer and dining table and chairs sitting 5/6.

Upstairs there is a comfortable living room with plenty space to relax in front of the log burner with wood provided.

A large bathroom with waterfall shower and slipper bath and WC. There is also a separate WC giving everyone extra space and that extra touch of luxury.

There are 2 large double bedrooms with room to relax and unwind. One bedroom has a day bed to either use to relax or for an extra guest.

Outside there are beautiful grounds with private walled garden straight out of your door with large lawn and newly built patio area with wooden gazebo. Ideal for relaxing, dining with BBQs or even yoga.

We welcome well behaved dogs ! There is an additional fee of £30 per dog for the duration of your stay, along with a couple of extra courtesy rules.
*Dogs fee to be paid in cash on arrival or by bank transfer


* If more than 2 dogs ~ please contact prior to booking.

* Strictly no dogs allowed on the beds or on furniture.

Billholm House is our happy place, in the heart of Langholm countryside with lots of refreshing country walks, cycling, motorbike rides which are spectacular and we can highly recommend some great restaurants / pubs that are a short drive away. We can also arrange daily local fishing permits upon request prior to arrival for a small fee through the Estate Management company. Sitting by the private river, listening and watching the wildlife is our favourite past time. We have a lots of outside space for guests to enjoy alfresco dinning, BBQs and picnics, and you can enjoy the huge amount of wildlife and nature around. We are very welcoming and you will have enough privacy in the gardens to relax and take it all in, we are also happy to join you for a refreshment and we have had a movie night with some recent guests.
