Herdwick is located in a semi-rural location within an easily accessible area of Dumfries & Galloway, not far from the busy border town of Gretna.

This traditional well-presented detached cottage benefits from one / two-bedroom accommodation over a single floor with generous cottage garden grounds which offer a plethora of flowering plants, mature shrubs and specimen trees. The property benefits from ample off-road parking and a detached block-built outbuilding which has been sectioned off to accommodate a utility area, garage, storeroom and one area which has formerly been utilised as a stable for a small pony.

A feature of the property is the small grazing paddock, which could be utilised for housing small animals or indeed huge potential to create an area for some self-sufficient living. Given the generous plot occupied by Herdwick, there could be some potential to extend the property, however, any interested party would need to make their own enquiries in this respect with Dumfries & Galloway Council’s planning department.

Local services can be found at Springfield, which benefits from a hotel, primary school, shop and post office. A wider range of services are located within a short drive of the property within the busy town of Gretna boasting all essential and professional services, along with a thriving High Street and the Gretna Gateway Outlet. The nearby town of Dumfries offers further education choices within the Crichton University Campus.

There is a small grazing paddock and this, along with the garden grounds and outbuilding offer huge potential for housing small animals or indeed development for some self-sufficient living.
