The Flat at 3 Church Street in Glencaple offers very comfortable ground floor accommodation for two in the heart of Glencaple Village. Built in the early 19th century, it has recently been renovated to a high standard.
In winter flocks of Barnacles fly past your window in the morning and evening and other geese, waders and ducks can be seen on the river. Otters are often spotted nearby and in summertime porpoises and seals have been seen in the river. This area is a nature-lover’s paradise and is within the Nith Estuary, one of Scotland’s National Scenic Areas. Also well-placed for gentle walking, cycling, fishing, sightseeing and relaxing. Lovely beaches are only half an hour’s drive away and Caerlaverock Castle is just up the road.
Glencaple has a recently refurbished shop and café, The Boathouse. The shop sells a wide range of groceries including delicious local produce. Plus gifts, products from local designers/artists and traditional children’s toys. There’s also the popular Nith Hotel just around the corner from the flat which serves lunches and dinners all year round.
