Tourist Info

High Dyon Side is a well-appointed 18th Century farmhouse in a delightful three acre garden setting. Sheltered by woodland and with its own little beck winding through the lawns and flower beds, High Dyon Side provides a tranquil paradise away from the bustle of town life.

In addition to our extensive grounds we also have a full-size painted cement tennis court, barbeque, ponds, pagoda, and picturesque ivy-covered byres.

Our surrounding 30 acres of grazing farmland provide wondertful short strolls with panoramic views across the Solway to Dumfries and Galloway, and in the other direction, onto the Lakeland fells.

High Dyon Side offers a warm welcome and comfortable accommodation in a well-appointed farmhouse set amid beautiful gardens.

Relax on one of the delightful sheltered lawns of the lovingly-tended grounds of High Dyon Side.

Swap tales and laughs over a wine or two in the farmhouse kitchen, with the AGA stove providing year-round warmth.

The gardens are alive with colour during the Spring and Summer months, offering a true haven from the hustle-and-bustle of the outside world.

In winter why not settle down beside the open fire after a day's outing to ease tired limbs and take in a good book from our extensive library.

Tennis anyone? Jim is always looking for partners, so join us in a game of singles or doubles. We have all the raquets, balls and Lemon Barleywater you'll need to play.
