Corehead Farmhouse is set in a unique and tranquil location nestling at the head of the Annanwater Valley, close to the historic Devils Beef Tub, 5 miles north of the Spa Town of Moffat in the beautiful countryside of Dumfries and Galloway.
This delightful farmhouse enjoys spectacular views of unspoilt rural countryside - a little hideaway, yet very accessible, at only 7 miles from the M74, an hour drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh and 45 minuted from Carlisle.
Corehead Farmhouse has great cultural and historical significance. It is most famous for its association with William Wallace, whose sister married the laird of Corehead Tower, Sir Thomas Halliday. The Farmhouse was built on the site of the Tower House.
The Devil's Beef Tub is one of the most iconic landmarks in the South of Scotland. It is a cavernous hollow in the hills where the notorious Border Reivers once hid their stolen cattle. The Devil's Beef Tub forms part of Corehead, a stunning area of the land in the heart of the Southern Upland hills of Scotland which also includes Hart Fell, the highest hill in Dumfriesshire.
This traditional farmhouse is comfortably furnished in a traditional style with a lovely welcoming atmosphere. It boasts many original features and is quirky in design to offer a spacious 4 bedroomed family holiday home, sleeping up to 8 guests. Relax with a book in the 'snug' with the real woodburning stove, or enjoy the cosy atmosphere of the lounge with its large sumptuous sofas and original sandstone fireplace which dates back to 1600. The heart of any farmhouse can be found in the traditional farmhouse kitchen with solid fuel Rayburn and breakfast table. In addition to the main kitchen there is a utility to the rear with dishwasher, and washing machine. This leads to a cloakroom toilet. At the front of the house is a large conservatory which enjoys outstanding views onto the garden and the valley beyond. The conservatory provides comfortable seating as well as dining for 8 guests. Guests are invited to explore the large private grounds or sit on the patio to take in the unspoilt countryside. The enclosed 1/2 acre garden provides plenty of space for children and pets to explore in safety.
Upstairs the split balcony leads in one direction to the two double bedrooms, both with en-suite shower and lovely views of the valley. The second staircase leads to the family bathroom which is shared by the third double bedroom and spacious twin bedroom.
There is ample parking for 3 cars at the front of the house and several cars in the farmyard at the rear.

Moffat, a historic spa town in the Annandale Valley, is set in the heart of beautiful countryside. A quaint and historic town that offers excellent shopping, places to eat, a wonderful park and an excellent base for discovering the local area and beyond.
Moffat's wide, tree-lined high street retains many of its original characteristics and the town has strong connections with both the Moffat and Johnstone clans.
A sheep farming town in years gone by, this history is depicted by the Ram Statue on the high street. The Devil's Beef Tub, a large depression in ground north of the town, aided the sheep and cattle rustlers who operated in the area, allowing them a place to hide the animals before moving them on.
Moffat was a spa town until 1921 when the Hydropathic Hotel burnt to the ground. The surrounding hills and the local section of the Southern Upland Way provide excellent walking opportunities, while the River Annan is good for fishing.
There is an interesting 'events diary' running throughout the season with something for all the family to enjoy.
