This stone built detached cottage is located near to the village of Torthorwald close to Dumfries and it sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

West Winds is a stone built detached cottage on a sloping hillside close to the villages of Torthorwald and Collin just four miles from Dumfries in Southern Scotland. Boasting one double bedroom and one twin as well as a family shower room, this cottage can sleep four people. The rest of the accommodation is comprised of a fitted kitchen, a conservatory with a dining area and a sitting room with a gas fire.

To the outside of the cottage is off road parking for three cars and a large rear garden with outdoor furniture and a lawned area with a stream and a pond. Set in a rural location, yet with plenty of local amenities close by, West Winds is a cottage that is sure to please everyone.


The first holiday cottage we have ever stayed in as we had our small dog with us. Our expectations were exceeded in every department. The cottage is fully furnished with not a single item that you would need to bring from your own home. It's furnished to a very high standard and beautifully kept. However the jewel in the crown is the wonderful garden. It's large, contains a stream and trees and offered many hours of great fun playing with our dog, she didn't want to leave! The view of the surrounding countryside is beautiful and we will definitely stay here again the next time we holiday in this area.

Ideal for us and our dog.
Despite the cottage being compact we never felt it was cramped as best use of the available space has been made. It is on a roadside but very little traffic uses it as it only serves this property and two neighbours. From the garden furniture to the kitchen appliances and entertainment, everything is to a high standard. The conservatory is a great place to eat and relax but also to shed any wet clothes and footwear and dry off the dog. Thank you to the owners for the lovely shortbread and wine! The only downside is that having had so much use of the conservatory we want future holiday cottages to have one and that restricts choice!

Relaxing Break
Lovely cottage in a quiet location just 10 mins drive from the centre of Dumfries. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped, just the place for a relaxing break. The conservatory at the rear of the cottage is the perfect place to sit and unwind whilst watching the wildlife in the garden.

West Winds is a nice cottage with a lovely garden on a convenient site for touring the Solvay coast and adjacent areas.
Mr Hoekstra

The cottage was in a lovely location, with a super garden. It was warm and comfortable and provided us with an excellent base for our holiday.
