Tucked away on the Caerlaverock Estate on the south west coast of Scotland, The Curve is an off-grid cabin, perfect for romantic escapes to the countryside. Surrounded by spectacular landscapes, the cabin has been designed by an award-winning eco-designer to exist in harmony with nature. Huge windows across the front of the cabin allow you to take in the views reaching as far as the Lake District, or you can soak it all up from the comfort of the wood-fired hot tub. Spend your days exploring the estate, home to a 13th century medieval castle, a herd of Belted Galloway cattle, a National Nature Reserve, ancient woodlands and its own cafe. Back at The Curve, put your feet up in front of the wood burner or sink into the luxurious bath and stargaze through the skylight above.
The cabin feels bright and spacious thanks to the big windows along the front which let in plenty of natural light and allow you to enjoy the view whether you’re relaxing in bed, lounging on the sofa or enjoying a soak in the bath. To one end, you’ll find the bedroom which features a comfy king size bed. If you’re travelling with young children, the wardrobe can be converted into bunk beds, suitable for ages 4-10, or the sofa in the living room can also be converted into a bed. Move through to the bathroom and you’ll find a luxurious freestanding bath with an overhead shower and a skylight above, allowing you to stargaze in the beautiful dark skies.
There’s a well equipped kitchen area allowing you to rustle up simple meals or perhaps just a coffee in the morning before heading to the estate’s cafe for brunch. The dining table is set in front of bi-fold doors that lead out onto the decking, so on warmer days, you can open these up and enjoy your meals outdoors. The living space is at the other end of the cabin with a comfy sofa in front of a wood burner, the perfect set-up for a cosy evening in.
Outside, you’ll find a deck with chairs for stargazing late into the night. If you find yourselves getting chilly in the evening, there’s a camp fire area in the meadow below or there’s always the wood-fired hot tub. This is positioned so you can enjoy the stunning views of the Solway Estuary as you sit back and relax.
There’s plenty to do without even leaving the Caerlaverock Estate. Explore the beautiful 13th century fortress surrounded by a moat or head out on a walk in the Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve. The mud flats and salt marshes in the reserve are fantastic places for a bit of birdwatching, or you can head out along the Solway Firth coastline for panoramic views and more opportunities to spot local wildlife. There are several spots along the estuary where you can have a go at fishing and you can learn more about the natural habitats on the estate from the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. If you fancy venturing a little further afield, head to Dumfries where you can explore the house of the poet Robert Burns or head to one of the local eateries for some traditional and artisanal treats.
From £150 a night minimum of two nights.
