The Caerlaverock Wetland Centre is set amidst a wealth of beautiful scenery, dominated by the 2,000-foot granite mass of Criffel to the west with the mountains of the English Lake District across the Solway Firth to the south and, to the north, the rolling Moffat and Lowther Hills.
Caerlaverock Castle is just three miles away and, beyond that, the Solway coast stretches west to the rugged Mull of Galloway.
The warm and comfortable farmhouse at Eastpark is situated at the very heart of this famous reserve and commands superb views from its own observation tower across this and the adjacent National Nature Reserve.
Wild whooper swans roost just below the bedroom windows in the winter and a mile of screened approaches link the house to hides, observatories and towers from which the Solway's 30,000 barnacle geese and a wide variety of other wildlife can be secretly observed.
The nearest village, Glencaple, is five miles from the centre and has both a shop and a hotel. The historic regional capital of Dumfries, nine miles away, has a wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs.
