When we pulled into the square at New Abbey and saw the cottage, it just looked lovely. We went in and it was lovely and warm which was a good start. All of the rooms are very well appointed and very, very cosy.
The living room has a lovely open fire and very comfortable sofas and the adjoining kitchen is very clean and has everything that you would need for a cottage holiday. The additional touches of flowers and candles make it even better.
The wet room is fantastic! I couldn't get my 14 year old daughter out of the shower! Both bedrooms are very comfortable. The bunk room is small but there is enough room for a wardrobe and, I have to say, my daughter and I didn't struggle in this room at all.
The location of the cottage is great as the village of New Abbey is lovely. The people in the local shop were really helpful, as were the owners of the cottage.
Oh, and there is a lovely garden at the rear which is very sheltered.
We would definitely come back to this cottage.
My friend and our partners were in town for a Valentines/sightseeing trip and We wanted something out of the main towns. We decided on new abbey partly for the great price and that it was close to a few places we wanted to visit!
The cottage is lovely, clean and modern with some cosy features! We LOVED the fire especially! There's a shop nearby that we got our breakfast supplies from the next morning and there was a really great selection for a small shop! Our partners ventured out for a walk while we went to the abbey in the town! Its got a great history for a small place and we feel like the town is like a picture book (we took so many photos of the views alone)! Beautiful fields and the tea room served delicious food!
We braved the weather and took the car out to the beach for our valentines BBQ and although the weather wasn't all that great we would love to go back in summer to get the full benefits! Lots of birdlife around Southerness and the beach was clean and free of litter!
Local pubs are quiet but have a nice atmosphere and Its a quick drive to Dumfries and Castle Douglas! We went into both towns during our week here and we felt so relaxed during our stay - the townspeople are very friendly too! We'll definitely be back soon!
