Brockloch Farm – Dumfries & Galloway

  • Bothy for 4 from £86 per night

    1 double, 1 sofa bed.

Suitable for children of all ages

Not suitable for pets

Children are welcome at Brockloch Bothy but we’re sorry, it’s not suitable for pets.

An architect-designed eco-build with far-reaching views, surrounded by sheep

George and Julie have diversified impressively on their small, family-run farm in the Galloway hills: up the farm track, through the bluebell wood, and in a field grazed by their Scottish Blackface sheep, Brockloch Bothy has already settled comfortably into its new home.

It has all the luxuries of a boutique cottage - a swish kitchen, a crackling fire, home-baked welcome treats - with a lightness that springs from sincere eco-credentials and contemporary design. Made of sustainable timber, with cosy goose-down duvets, a wool mattress on the double bed, and Earthborn paints throughout, the Bothy is insulated with sheep's wool. Two more can sleep on the double sofa bed, and there's a separate shower room with loo. The two large solar panels on the roof power the lighting and charge your phone or laptop, but there's no TV or wifi. Instead watch the world go by from wide windows, or relax into the silence, complete apart from the yip of a fox or the hoot of an owl. 

Play at Famous Five on the rocky crags and hidden coves of nearby beaches, taste local game from great farm shops and restaurants, visit the 'Artists' Town' of Kirkcudbright, or experience the UK's longest zip wire.

Our guests say...

We enjoyed our two night Winter break at Brockloch Bothy. The Bothy is cosy and toasty warm, thanks to the wood burning stove and eco-insulation. Julie and George are great hosts - friendly and genuinely pleased to meet their guests. Seeing the new born lambs was a treat. As was meeting the pygmy goats.



Beautiful location and such a lovely little place! May try the treehouse next time.. Take a few books and your walking boots!



"The bothy is a beautiful amazing place to stay, perfect for a get away stay. It is furnished delightfully with lovely fittings and furniture. The bed is so comfy and was very cosy. A wood burner heats the bothy providing plenty of heat and a warm  glow . George and Julie the owners are very caring hosts, who were so helpful and nice"



"We stayed in the Bothy from the Thursday until the Sunday. We live in Newcastle and so it was a short 2.5 hour journey from home.  The location is lovely and the Bothy was wonderful...even better than expected.  We loved being in the middle of the field and working farm and enjoyed the quiet and the views. The Bothy was much better equipped than we'd hoped for and so it made for a very quiet, cosy home-away-from-home.  The cooking facilities and kitchen were perfectly sized for the both of us and the bathroom was very nicely done out as is the rest of the place. We spent most of the time reading and taking in the views.  We ventured to a pub a short (2 mile) walk away and to the Craigadam Country House which is about a 5 minute walk for dinner on the Friday. Our intention was to catch up on some much needed sleep and to relax and cut ourselves off from the rest of the World.  I felt like we did just that and I have come home feeling like a new person!"



"Thank you Brockloch Bothy for giving us memories to treasure. Four days of blissful peace ~ we loved hunkering down in such a snug & cosy hideaway. The magical combination of the simply stunning setting & beautifully designed Bothy really wowed us. We hunkered down as warm as toast by the fire whilst watching the big skies roll in.  Bliss!"



"It was wonderful, the location was stunning and we got a lovely warm welcome as well as some delicious fresh eggs from Julie"



"Very relaxing, nice hosts who were helpful and seemed genuinely interested in our well being.  Lovely, modern cottage with state of the art design and comfort.  Within easy travelling of local activities"



"Amazing, loved it. Peace and quiet."



"Beautiful location and a beautiful, unique property."



"We visited Brockloch Bothy in July with our two boys. We found it to be a very special place to unwind and enjoy the countryside and coast of Dumfries & Galloway. The Bothy was an inspiration – great design, thoughtfully decorated, comfortable and well equipped for a family of four and the homemade cake was much appreciated. Julie and George were wonderful, thoughtful hosts and even provided a temporary paddling pool for our children during a week of temperatures over 25 degrees!  It was a delight to be there and enjoy such privacy in amazing accommodation and stunning surroundings. We hope to be back in the winter to enjoy the log burning stove."



"The bothy and George and Julie could not have been any better! It was just as it was shown on TV and so relaxing! Recommend to everyone and will hope to return!"



"Fabulous. Warm, welcoming hosts, amazing location, superb design, great insulation, beautifully kept, walks from the door, bluebell woods, partridges, larks................... there was no worst, tho' the track to the bothy was a bit scary especially in the dark, I would not have it any other way - it should be!"



"Lovely accommodation, welcoming hosts and gorgeous location."



"The four of us stayed, 2 couples and it was fantastic. The Bothy is idyllic and set in a famers field overlooking the rolling hills. It was brilliant and secluded in the best possible way! We loved it."



"Although the weather was awful the weekend we stayed, the bothy was very cosy and comfortable."



"The place was absolutely stunning, my partner and I are both architects and are always looking for quirky design led places to stay outside of the city and we couldn't find fault with the place. Amazingly considered design, stunning location and the owners were lovely and welcoming."



"The best thing was our toddler having the freedom to run about, with the farmer letting him ride on the quad bike and visit the lambs. It was also great being "cut off from the world" i.e. no wifi and very little mobile signal. This ensured we completely relaxed!"



"Julie, the owner, was very helpful...everything was first class"
