Interaction with guests
We will be there to welcome guests and show them into the cottage. We usually pop by the following day just to check everything is OK. 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. 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 neighborhood
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 (Tesco and Asda will deliver), two cafes, hotels and a bistro serving great 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. If you register with Co-wheels, a pay as you go car hire scheme, you can hire a car in Dumfries for as long as you need.
