Interaction with guests
We will normally be there to welcome guests and show them into the cottage but if we can't someone else will be. We live in the neighbouring property so will usually be available during your stay to answer any queries or suggest things to do, places to visit or where to eat. Although living next door we totally respect your privacy during your stay and you won't see us unless you want to! If for any reason we won't be around, guests will have an alternative contact person. Our catering business, Katering Allsorts also offers home cooked meals ready to pop in the oven/heat on the hob plus delicious soups, desserts and afternoon teas. We can send you a menu of options if you ask when you book.

About the neighbourhood
Riverside Cottage’s location is not only a great base for visiting local attractions in Dumfries & Galloway, cycling, walking, golfing and catching the train for a day in Edinburgh or Glasgow but it is also perfect if you just want to relax, unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet of South West Scotland. There are a number of things to do and see within a 30 minute drive of the cottage, as well as lots more further afield. There are a couple of lovely country walks right from the doorstep and many others not too far away. There is a Tesco in Lockerbie (10 minute drive - Tesco and Asda will deliver), a butchers and a bakers as well as cafes and hotels all serving food as well as a number of takeaways, some which will deliver.
Getting around
Given the rural location of the cottage a car is recommended. However, trains frequently stop in Lockerbie and, if we were around, we would collect guests from the station. Alternatively a taxi costs around £10. There is a bus service into Lockerbie and back 4 times a day, with connections to other towns available.
