Perfect house with two very good bathrooms
Clean and welcoming and a really good location.
Castle douglas well worth a visit for shopping and drumlamrig castle gardens are excellent
This house was perfect for our stay this Easter weekend. It was like stepping into the tardis. Looks small from the outside, but when you get in it is much bigger.
We stayed with our son his wife and two grandsons.
Beds were really comfortable, rooms clean. Everything you needed is provided.
I originate from the area so was nice to show everyone my beautiful home village. We went to Drumlanrig castle, Morton castle. Also Keir where the 1st pedal bicycle was invented. We also went up to Loch Ettrick back over Mitchelslacks.
Called into Marchbanks to have breakfast as we left, fully recommend it. Bought some rolls and scotch pies to take home.
Number 37 was easy to book, warm and welcoming for us, very well located, very well equipped - we couldn't fault it. Spacious enough for us 6 adults to fully enjoy our four day break - great lounge with access to large dining room and good sized kitchen. Lovely enclosed patio / yard area (which we did not use due to bad weather). Three spacious bedrooms with lovely linens and good storage. Two superb bathrooms. A really first class cottage, Thank you.
We came up for a few days fishing.
It's was perfect,warm, clean,great showers, very comfy beds and the whole cottage is much bigger than it looks.
Ideal location in Thornhill
We will be back again !
This is a nice location in the village.
We appreciated as we were at home there was every thing you needed and not to much. Every thing were well explained.
The mattress were good, the bedrooms were nice well decorated.
So if we come back we surely stay there.
We've been twice before and came back a third time. A smashing house in a brilliant place. Thornhill is a simple friendly magical place. The only sadness is the decline of the River Nith as a salmon river, but that is politics in the control of the Scottish government. The loss of amenity is something that in a small way the whole of Thornhill will progressively pay for as the visiting fishermen go elsewhere.
We have just returned from the most fabulous stay for a week at 37. Will definitely be back to stay at such a wonderful gem In the mountains! The space this cottage has to offer is quite astounding. The rooms were double the size I thought they would be, plenty of space for our party of 5 adults. The beds were lovely and comfortable, with everything feeling very warm and cosy. The bathrooms were clean and luxurious, with towels provided. Quite unexpected! The garden/patio area was very private and beautifully cared for. Had the weather been just a tad warmer we might all have sat out there to eat in the evening, but you can't have everything! Maybe next time? We had been left fresh flowers and a bottle of wine on arrival which was a very kind. The owners were kind enough to let us store our bikes locked safely in the garden hut whilst we weren't using them, thank you! Thornhill was convenient and welcoming. The local supermarket was open late and the fish suppers we had, topped our week off nicely. We trekked around the Galloway Forest Park, seeing a beautiful spectical - sunset over Clatteringshaws Loch with The Merrick looming in the distance. My partner and I sampled local mountain biking/walking at the 7stanes bike centres at Ae, Mabie, Kirroughtree and Glentrool. Plenty more biking and walking available to do in the area. We simply scratched the surface and that was pretty exciting! On the couple of wet days we encountered we visited Drumlanrig Castle and paid a small amount to take part in the guided tour of the castle and the grounds. The tour was very interesting and informative, well worth a visit. We also took a trip into Dumfries to have a good look around although, we ran out of time to visit any of the tourist spots, the town itself was useful and bustling, despite the rain!
Loved the house and the area. I can't wait to book our next trip up here. Would definitely recommend staying at 37. Easy to find and convenient for parking - 2 spaces right outside the house off the street. Thanks for letting us stay! :) Lindsay
