We stayed here with our one year old for a weeks break. The cottage was lovely and quite well equiped, although it would have been good to have a washing machine in the cottage, there was one available on site.
The views from the cottage were beautiful, with farm land surrounding us, and the garden which the cottage was set in was very well maintained and secure for our little girl to play in.
It was only a short 15 min walk into the village of Wigtown, where there was a few cafes and pubs to eat in. We would reccomend ' The Readinglasses', a combined bookshop and really good cafe and The Ploughman Pub, which served a surprisingly good and cheap Sunday lunch. The Creaking Bookshop also sells frozen home cooked meals to heat and eat at home, which were very tasty and good value.
There is also a little market in the village square on Saturday mornings which was good to have browse around.
All in all- a lovely location and homely comfortable cottages.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- One of the former byres of Borrowmoss Farm has been carefully converted to provide three lovely single-storey self catering holiday cottages. They can be booked individually or as a whole to accommodate larger groups (maximum 12 people). The enclosed garden provides a safe place for children to play. Location: Situated in a quiet rural location, yet only 1 mile from Wigtown, Scotland's National Book Town, in the heart of the natural beauty of Wigtownshire, Borrowmoss offers an ideal base for your holiday in South West Scotland. Pet Friendly Self Catering - The Cottages: Each of the 3 self-catering cottages accommodates 4 people in 2 twin bedrooms. Being on a single level, all cottages are easily accessible by the less able. All the cottages are non-smoking. Pet Friendly: In Teal and Greylag, we accept well-behaved dogs. Wigeon has been refurnished to a high standard and regrettably pets are not accepted.
