The double room has a king sized zip and link bed that can be split into two single beds if required. Ideal for family's and parties of 3 single people who may wish their own bed.Parking is provided within the square in front of the cottage.Externally there is a brick built storage shed with a robust secure door, Bike maintenance stand and hose down facilities within it. The washing machine, tumble dryer and associated drying area is also provided within the outbuildings. The garden to the property is not behind the cottage, it lies down a short path to the side of the property, it is lovely and private and has the historic sweetheart abbey wall running along the eastern boundary of the garden, which it is southerly facing. The patio and associated furniture are located in the bottom corner of the garden to take full advantage of the shelter provided by the walls and capture the sun at the same time.There is a quiet country pub and a shop within the square, together with an award winning cafe just 300metres from the cottage, perfect for those who don't want to cook. The village shop is well stocked and you are able to get everything you need, including a nice bottle of wine.There are numerous walks that start from the square, ranging from gentle walks around woodlands and along the estuary, to the more demanding walks up to waterloo monument and Criffel, a hump-backed hill that at 1871 feet above sea level, it is the highest for miles around. Mabie forest walks and mountain bike tracks (one of the seven stanes) are within cycling distance of the cottage.New abbey really is a beautiful village, the famous corn-mill within the village is the main view from the living room of the cottage. On the edge of the village is the intriguing Sweetheart Abbey, the ruined Sweetheart Abbey, founded by Lady Devorgilla in 1273 to commemorate the death of her husband John Balliol. On her death she was laid next to her husband's embalmed heart and the monks named the abbey in memory of her. Also within the village is a doctors surgery, small play park, football pitch, antique shop, Shambellie walled garden and associated walks as displayed in our photo gallery.The village is on a main bus route, ideal for catching a bus to go for a night out in Dumfries. Little Italy, Casa Mia, Hullabaloo, and Cavens are excellent places to eat.There is also an award winning links golf course and beach located at Southerness, which is approximately 7 miles from the cottage. The coast is approximately 3 miles from the cottage and is peppered with beautiful beaches, some are stoney others have miles of golden sand. Best Sandy Beach is called Sandyhills approx 9 miles from the cottage.This cottage is ideally situated for couples, families, groups of mountain bikers, walkers, bird watchers, golfers and beach lovers.Once you arrive in New Abbey, you really would not need to get back into your car, until you are ready to go home again.We are a family run business and have very high standards, please read our reviews for our established holiday property, listed as Burnbrae Mill.

About the neighbourhood
Heading out west from dumfries, just 8 miles along the Solway Coast Heritage Trail lies the pretty conservation village of New Abbey. The imposing Sweetheart Abbey is one of the highlight attractions in the region. The village is also home to a saw mill, two hotels, village shop and a coffee shop which offers excellent scones and refreshments. Also situated in the pretty village of New Abbey and under the care of Historic Scotland is a three-storey whitewashed mill building, built towards the end of the 18th century by the Stewarts of nearby Shambellie House. However, it is thought that it reaches back much later than that, perhaps to as early as the late 13th century, when the Cistercian monks established their monastery of Dulce Cor ('Sweet Heart' ) at the far end of the village; today...
