Welcome to our idyllic riverside cottage. Nestled in the picturesque Dumfries & Galloway countryside and set on the banks of Cairn Water. The area is rich with wildlife. Red squirrel, deer, kingfisher, woodpecker, red kite, buzzard and otter are just a few of the local visitors spotted from our garden. Stepford Station Cottage is the perfect cosy retreat for nature lovers. We welcome up to 2 well behaved dogs at no extra fee.

The space
Stepford used to be a minor station on the Cairn Valley Light Railway and the cottage itself was the station masters house, built by the Cairn Valley Railway in around 1905. The line closed in 1943 and the track lifted in 1953.
The cottage offers 1 bedroom with a king-size bed and views overlooking the garden. Leading off the bedroom is an open plan living and dining space which benefits from a wood burner, stereo, TV, DVD player, bluetooth speaker and WIFI. A few days supply of wood will be made available. There is also a selection of DVD's, books and board games for your entertainment.
In the kitchen there is a kettle, toaster, microwave and fridge with freezer compartment. There is a wonderful view of the river and hills from the kitchen sink which makes doing the washing up a bit more enjoyable!
The den is a separate outhouse and has a washing machine, an airer to dry clothes,an iron with ironing board, a large fridge freezer and space to store bikes.
There is a summer house and decking area by the river, equipped with garden furniture so you can enjoy breakfast al fresco whilst trying to spot the elusive otter.
There is plenty of parking on a private driveway. The garden is enclosed though there is open access to the river which makes it unsuitable for young children and something to consider if bringing your dog.

I spend my days smiling, reading and going for very long walks.
