Brockloch Eco Retreat have 2 wonderful and unique units to rent - the Eco Bothy and a Treehouse. Both have been designed by award-winning designer Sam Booth and featured on Channel 4's George Clarke's Amazing Spaces. Hidden in the bluebell wood is Brockloch Treehouse for 2, with roof skylights allowing you to fall asleep while star gazing. The Eco Bothy is a wooden eco holiday cabin for 4 people. These eco-friendly properties are surrounded by wildlife and views.

The Treehouse and Brockloch Bothy are a short walk from each other but are very separate accommodations, with their own private oudoor areas. 9 miles west is the Town of Dumfries. They are located on a family, working farm so there are plenty of sheep around making this truly feel like a rural retreat. There are 190 acres of land where red kites, red squirrels, deer and badgers are often spotted.

Gorgeously quirky to look at, Brockloch Treehouse is a romantic hideaway. Set in a pretty bluebell wood you are sure to unwind and escape from day to day stresses. The unusual wooden building has been designed in every way to work with and blend in with the surrounding nature. There is a small kitchen area with a 2 ring gas hob and a cool box, a built-in double bed, flushing toilet, bath and a hobbit log burning stove.

There are 2 large roof skylights in the treehouse; one above the bed and the other above the bath, so whether you are relaxing in soapy bubbles or wrapped up in the covers of the bed, you can get a stunning view of the treetops, sky and stars without stepping outside.

The wooden eco holiday cabin can accommodate up to 4 people. The layout of it includes an open plan kitchen (with a gas hob oven)/ sitting area (where there is a woodburning stove and a sofa bed), a bathroom, a double bedroom and front outside decking which has a fire bowl and outdoor furniture. Next to the cabin, there is a shed with a fridge inside.

The contemporary, micro timber-framed building has many eco credentials, this includes, 2 large solar panels that supply all of the electricity, sustainable timber and environmentally-friendly paint was used. There is sheep's wool insulation, a solar-powered radio, a wool mattress plus cosy natural goose down duvets.

Visitors are encouraged to 'switch off' and relax during their stay so there is no TV or WiFi in either of the properties. Instead, enjoy rolling countryside and the relaxing sounds of the wildlife.

Due to it being situated on a working farm, NO PETS are allowed. No smoking.

2 nights minimum stay. Treehouse: prices start from £300 for 2 nights. Brockloch Cabin: prices start from £300 for 2 nights and £645 for a week.
