We stayed at Grooms cottage for a week in May 2014 and we were delighted with the cottage. We were met on arrival by the cottage owners who gave a tour of the cottage and full explanation about everything included. There was a lovely welcome pack of goodies for our young son and ourselves which was very thoughtful by the owners and shows how much they care for their guests.
The cottage was very spacious with large entrance hallway, large lounge/dining room, fully equipped kitchen, downstairs WC and shower, sitting/reading area upstairs, 2 good size double bedrooms and a ensuite shower room in the master bedroom. Secure gated car park was great as we were happy knowing our son was safe and couldn't wander off. The location of the cottage is perfect, 5 mins away from nearby Moffat village with its quaint shops and restaurants, an hour from Glasgow and about an hour from Edinburgh. Also nearby is Dumfries which is a larger town with plenty of shops and things to do.
The cottage had everything you could need. All bed linen, towels, microwave, washing machine, TV and DVD player, steamer, iron, Hoover and all the usual essentials. It was like home from home.
The cottage was clean, tidy and very light and bright inside and for the price is an absolute bargain. You will be hard pushed finding any thing that beats this cottage for value for money.
The on site manager, Colin, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He went out of his way to help us with directions and places to visit and at the same time was busy doing on going maintenance to keep the exterior of the cottages looking immaculate.
We would highly recommend this cottage to family and friends and so you will not be disappointed.
Keep up the good work Tom and Chris (owners) and Colin (site manager).
