We booked the Iron Age Roundhouse for a weekend break - what a place! It's set in some attractive woodland which is only a short drive from Dumfries but the setting is so idylic you believe that you are miles away from civilization
12 of us spent two nights here and we were very comfortable on the mattresses/seating provided. Once the fire is roaring and the candles are burning it creates a fantastic ambience. There is one power socket but we used this to power our sound system. The facilities around the roundhouse itself are fantastic with gas burners for cooking, a barbecue, compost toilets, shower/washing facilities and a straw bale urinal only a few steps away. The hot tub and sauna also looked very nice but.
A special mention to Mike (who i think may be the owner) who gave us a very concise induction on how to use the sites facilities, and more importantly the stove in the roundhouse!
I'll definitely be back at some point.
