Laightown Cottage is conveniently located about 7 miles from the busy market town of Dumfries and about 9 miles from Lockerbie. Laightown Cottage is a traditional well-presented detached property with no immediate neighbours, surrounded by the stunning countryside of Dumfries & Galloway.

Laightown Cottage has been well maintained and incorporates all fixtures and fittings associated with modern family living. The cottage benefits from three bedroom accommodation and is nestled within its own mature garden grounds.

At present, the current owners run a successful pet boarding business from the property and set back from the cottage there are three generous kennel buildings, which are fully fitted, offering all modern facilities and benefit from a dedicated laundry, office and storage spaces.

OUTSIDE
The cottage is surrounded by its own garden grounds, which are mainly made up of lawns, mature shrubs and specimen trees. The area occupied by the kennel buildings is fenced off from the garden grounds with timber fencing, providing security and privacy for the dwellinghouse.

THE OUTBUILDINGS
Laightown Cottage benefits from a range of modern outbuildings, which are currently utilised for a successful pet boarding business. The outbuildings benefit from independent supplies of power, water, drainage and heating. These outbuildings accommodate a number of kennels, office space, laundry rooms, storage space and outdoor runs.

The older block has 12 kennels in total:

6 at 5′ x5’2″ with covered runs 6’7″ long with galvanised panels and wellness

6 at 5′ x 5′ with covered runs as above.

The larger kennel building is approx’ 47 ft long x 24 ft wide, with additional 8 foot covered runs each side.

A total of 22 kennels, current rates are £15 per day for a single dog, £25 a day for two sharing, and £32 for three sharing. All dogs sharing a kennel must be from the same household.

Given that the seller is the sole manager of the kennels, they only board what they are able to handle alone.
