Liftingstane Farmhouse (ref UK10452) is an imposing, detached farmhouse which has been refurbished in 2018. The farmhouse is spacious and a particular feature of the property is the large, open plan kitchen, living and dining area, the perfect place to enjoy family time together. The additional sitting room with its large inglenook fireplace with wood burner offers that cosy room for the winter evenings. The views from Liftingstane Farmhouse are pretty special too!

Liftingstane Farm is set in a rural location in the mid-section of the beautiful Nith Valley in Dumfries-shire, near to the small village of Closeburn and 3 miles from Thornhill. There is a choice of activities locally to suit all ages including walking, cycling, golfing, fishing and birdwatching. Enjoy a round of golf at the local 18-hole course in Thornhill, or if fishing is your thing, the River Nith provides numerous areas to fish for salmon and trout (licence required). Drumlanrigg Castle and Gardens, Ellisland (once home to Robert Burns), Charles Jenck’s Garden of Cosmic Speculation and world class mountain biking routes, the 7 Stanes, are all on your doorstep. 20 minutes south is the town of Dumfries with lots to keep the whole family entertained with farm parks, swimming, ice-skating, art centres and shopping.

According to local historical records Liftingstane Farm had a ’lifting stane’ (lifting stone) on the property up until about 200 years ago, hence how the farm got its name. Unfortunately, no one knows what happened to it. The challenge of the Lifting Stane is to lift it, proving an individual’s strength. Lifting Stanes are common throughout Scotland, Wales and Cumbria, and recently stones have been incorporated into the World’s Strongest Man competitions.

Further afield, take a trip to the Galloway Forest Park, one of the darkest places in the UK, in fact the UK’s first Dark Sky Park. A visit to this area of south west Scotland would not be complete without a day trip to the rugged coastline and seaside, with visits to the quaint villages and towns such as Kippford, Sandyhills, Southerness and Kirkcudbright.

This is a central base for day trips to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stranraer or Carlisle which are all within a 1½ hour drive. If you fancy a stress-free day, why not just relax in the peace and quiet at the farmhouse. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

Liftingstane Farmhouse can be booked together with Liftingstane Cottage (ref UK5232) and Liftingstane Dairy Cottage (ref UK5878) to accommodate up to 17 guests.
