Holehouse has an established garden which has been beautifully and carefully landscaped. It has been developed in and around the farm steading over the past 15 years. Its secluded location high on a hillside offers some wonderful views over the Dumfries hills and nearby Drumlanrig Estate. It is a garden of great variety, which includes a labyrinth, pond, herbaceous plants, shrubs and maturing trees. There is also a vegetable garden and orchard.
