“Wonderful cottage holiday!”
Reviewed January 10, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had such a lovely few days with the family here over the festive. The cottage is really beautiful with stunning views. It is immaculately clean, furnished to a high standard with extremely comfortable cozy beds. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need. A welcome hamper was provided with the essentials which was a really nice touch and it really felt like home from home. Although we didn't visit any of the local attractions as we spent our time visiting family there are plenty brochures available of all things to do and places to eat.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay . Would highly recommend and would definitely return in the future.

“Fantastic, wish we could have stayed longer!”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Very peaceful and comfortable, the whole cottage is very nicely furnished and spotlessly clean, with a lovely view of the River Cree and it's only a short walk to the town centre and there's plenty of stuff to do in the area, it's a short drive to the Galloway forest park which is great for walking,mountain biking and stargazing.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

“TRANQUIL COMFY COTTAGE”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

We found the cottage very clean and comfortable with everything you need for a great holiday. The cottage is on a main road but it is very quiet and parking is not a problem you can either park on the road or round the back of the cottage. The kitchen was fully equipped, the lounge had nice furniture and a balcony with views over the river. The beds were comfortable with plenty of bedding. The position of the cottage is a short walk from both the town and the countryside and the owner provided information in the cottage of places to visit and where to eat.
