The Byre Self Catering Cottage: www.lowkirkbridebyre.co.uk
We have farmed at Low Kirkbride for 51 years, during which time the farm has changed. The Byre, where we used to milk 40 Holstein Friesian cows, was converted into a contemporary three bedroom self catering cottage in 2005. The cottage comprises of a family room and an ensuite double and twin room, and sleeps from 1 to 8 people, with extra capacity on a sofa bed in the studio. A warm friendly welcome awaits you with underfloor heating and a wood/ coal burning stove. The cottage is classified as a Category 1 Disabled Access property under the National Accessibility Scheme. This spacious, comfortable and modern cottage is a super country retreat for families, couples and large groups.
Explore the farm on our farm walk and take the opportunity to meet all the farm animals including the Belted Galloways, sheep, chickens, ducks and horses. Low Kirkbride Farm is ideally situated within Dumfries and Galloway for easy access to local attractions, there is lots to do in the area including walking, fishing, mountain biking, golfing and horse riding. In addition come and see local castles, art, gardens, wildlife and museums.
At Low Kirkbride Farm we are committed to sustainability. We are an organic farm and manage our land in such a way to encourage the establishment and development of native flora and fauna. In 2011 we installed eighteen solar panels and in 2013 we put in a wood pellet biomass heating system to heat the bed and breakfast and self catering. We have a recycling centre on the farm where cardboard, tin cans, glass and plastic items are collected and taken to Jock’s Loaning Recycling in Dumfries. We buy local and purchase locally produced products where possible, in recognition of this we received the Visit Scotland Taste our Best award in December 2014.
