The cottage is a grade c listed building and was totally restored in 2013/14. The house has been finished to a high standard, with a new kitchen, wet room, central heating, open fire and tasteful decoration throughout.

The washing machine, tumble dryer and associated drying area is also provided within the outbuildings. The garden to the property is not behind the cottage, it lies down a short path to the side of the property, it is lovely and private and has the historic sweetheart abbey wall running along the eastern boundary of the garden, which it is southerly facing. The patio and associated furniture are located in the bottom corner of the garden to take full advantage of the shelter provided by the walls and capture the sun at the same time.There is a quiet country pub and a shop within the square, together with an award winning cafe just 300metres from the cottage, perfect for those who don't want to cook. The village shop is well stocked and you are able to get everything you need, including a nice bottle of wine.There are numerous walks that start from the square, ranging from gentle walks around woodlands and along the estuary, to the more demanding walks up to waterloo monument and Criffel, a hump-backed hill that at 1871 feet above sea level, it is the highest for miles around. Mabie forest walks and mountain bike tracks (one of the seven stanes) are within cycling distance of the cottage.New abbey really is a beautiful village, the famous corn-mill within the village is the main view from the living room of the cottage. On the edge of the village is the intriguing Sweetheart Abbey, the ruined Sweetheart Abbey, founded by Lady Devorgilla in 1273 to commemorate the death of her husband John Balliol. On her death she was laid next to her husband's embalmed heart and the monks named the abbey in memory of her. Also within the village is a doctors surgery, small play park, football pitch, antique shop, Shambellie walled garden and associated walks as displayed in our photo gallery.The village is on a main bus route, ideal for catching a bus to go for a night out in Dumfries.

Very Good

“Ideal Cottage”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2018

Stayed in this lovely cottage for four nights which has everything you would need including a dishwasher. The garden at the back is very private with lots of apple trees.Just wish the weather had been a little better so we could of made more use of it. Played golf twice in Dumfries, this was challenging due to the wind but enjoyable.

“Beautiful Cottage, garden and village”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2018

Well what can I say. This cottage is exceptional. There is absolutely everything you could possibly need in this beautiful, well equipped cottage. The garden is a very quite, secluded suntrap. We were very lucky to have exceptionally hot weather and made the most of this beautiful garden. People are very friendly especially in the little shop opposite the cottage. I must say the beautiful fresh cream strawberry sponge was delicious and a lovely welcoming touch. My husband was very excited to visit the Kite Feeding Station and we were not disappointed, it was amazing. There is a pub almost next door, however we didn't eat there so cannot comment on the food. Although it is so close to the property it was very quiet with noise closing time. Would definitely come back again. Allan was excellent at responding to any queries we had.

“Good accommodation and wonderful trip”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2017

The cottage was excellent . It had everything you need and it was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed our stay very much it was home from home.the welcome fresh home made cake was a nice treat. There are so many places to see and visit and although the weather was not that great we still managed to fit in lot of activities and the kids were kept busy throughout our stay. The visitor information book provided by the host is a good reference for things to do around the surrounding areas. The owner was very helpful and when we had a little problem on the following day of our arrival he was there within a half an hour of contacting him to sort it out.

“Cosy cottage”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2017

Had a great week in Abbey green cottage on my own with 2 kids. It had everything we needed - shed for our bikes, washing facilities and dryer, xbox for the kids, victoria sponge, milk, eggs, coal and the added bonus of a tv in each bedroom. The locals were very friendly. We did a lot of cycling nearby, visited the chocolate factory (where my daughter made chocolate) and did lazer tag in Galloway activity centre. A great cosy cottage in a lovely village.
