The SpaceMoniaive is one of Scotland’s most beautiful medieval villages with a long history but a very contemporary community spirit and modern bustling feel. Its coloured stone and slate buildings nestle in the stunning wildlife-rich Nithsdale valley in Dumfries and Galloway. This combination of natural beauty and a vibrant musical, culinary and artistic scene has led to it being dubbed ‘Britain’s coolest village’ by no lesser publication than The Times. Dumfries & Galloway is a hidden jewel, one of the least populated areas of the UK, with wild landscapes and a beautiful coastline. The area has a rich artistic culture with well established annual arts festivals and is developing a reputation as a focus for environmental art in the UK. Within walking distance of the house, you’ll find fantastic food, great walking and cycling country, outdoor pursuits and musical nightlife. Within half an hour’s drive you can explore the gorgeous Solway coast, the Galloway Forest Park and historic Dumfries and Burns country. Excellent road and rail links mean you are only 2 hours from Edinburgh and Glasgow and the festivals, the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall. If you are very adventurous you are 4 ½ hours from the Highlands and 5 hours from London. Our house is a simple, renovated 3 bedroom stone cottage set right in the heart of the village near to the shop, restaurants and pub. The house is simply furnished in a mix of vintage and contemporary style with wood floors and wood burning stoves. It has all the usual amenities and is child friendly. We also have a stone walled back garden with organic vegetable beds, an outside eating area and path access to the river. Guest AccessYou will have the house and garden to yourself to yourself during your stay. Interaction with GuestsWe stay just outside the village, so we'll welcome you when you arrive and will do all we can to make your stay wonderful. You may see us tending the garden (you're welcome to help yourself to organic produce) but otherwise we'll leave you in peace to enjoy your stay.

Heating is provided by individually controllable digital carbon heaters. Wi-fi and LED Panel Satellite TV & Radio. Residents garden. The cottage has no washing machine or drying facilities but a laundry service can be organised as required at additional cost. Glenluiart Lodges are situated in the grounds of Glenluiart. An A listed Arts & Crafts Country House one mile from the Conservation village of Moniaive, Dumfries & Galloway. History Moniaive has existed as a village as far back as the 10th century. On 4 July 1636 King Charles I granted a charter in favour of William, Earl of Dumfries, making Moniaive a 'free Burgh of Barony'. With this charter came the rights to set up a market cross and tolbooth, to hold a weekly market on Tuesday and two annual fairs each of three days duration. Midsummer Fair was from 16 June and Michaelmas Fair on the last day of September. Covenanting In the 17th century, Moniaive became the refuge for the Covenanters, a group of Presbyterian nonconformists who rebelled at having the Episcopalian religion forced on them by the last three Stuart kings, Charles I, Charles II and James II of England (James VII of Scotland). There is a monument off the Ayr Road to James Renwick, a Covenanter leader born in Moniaive and later executed in Edinburgh. James Paterson The Scottish artist James Paterson, a founder member of 'The Glasgow Boys', settled in Moniaive in 1884 and stayed for 22 years. He painted many local scenes including "The Last Turning" - a view of a woman approaching the village on the lane on the western side of the old millpond (now drained) in the Dalwhat Valley - now displayed in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. A James Paterson museum existed within the village until 2005 displaying photographs and memorabilia from the collection of his granddaughter, Anne Paterson-Wallace. Cairn Valley Light Railway The Cairn Valley Light Railway was opened from Dumfries in 1905 as a subsidiary company of the Glasgow and South Western Railway. Plans initially had involved developing Moniaive into a resort due to the countryside being very scenic and peaceful. Passenger services were suspended as a wartime economy on 3 May 1943 and to all traffic on 4 August 1947. Local economy The local economy is dominated by sheep and some cattle farming as well as forestry. The area has a large self-employed community including writers, artists, graphic designers, historical interpretation services, clothing designers, aromatherapists, stained glass workers, a wine importing business, a chocolatier, computer repairs, garden and landscaping services, plant nursery, and child care. There is a large general store including a post office counter, a garage, an organic cafe, a chocolatier, several artist studios, a primary school, a guest house and two hotels with bars and restaurants, one with accommodation, and two village halls. The village is currently home to Batman writer Alan Grant and members of the Scottish band Franz Ferdinand and Ralph Yates-Lee of world famous band Monkey Shoulder. Joanna Lumley also has a home near here. The writer Rumer Godden lived in Moniaive. A bi-monthly newspaper, called the Glencairn Gazette, is produced by volunteers and distributed free to residents. Festivals The village is home to a number of festivals that are held every year including; the Moniaive Folk Festival, the Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival, the Moniaive Horse Show, the Moniaive and District Arts Association annual exhibition, the Glencairn and Tynron Amateur Cottagers and Gardeners Horticultural Society show and the Moniaive Gala.
