“Great house for gatherings”
Reviewed February 14, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Have just spend a lovely long weekend in Branxholm Knowe with a group of friends and family. The conservatory with log burner is a lovely bright and comfortable place to relax and socialise. The hot tub and BBQ hut were fun additions. The house was clean and the beds comfortable. Communication with the owner was good, with good directions and lots of information available on the local area.

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Branxholm Knowe- the house is beautiful and perfect for large social gatherings. Hot tub was a hit and the wood burning stove in the conservatory was equally as cosy! Ian has been great with communication answering all of our queries as well as providing plenty of information about the surrounding area. I would thoroughly recommend this property for a relaxing getaway!

“Fabulous for a family get together”
Reviewed September 6, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The house is just lovely! loads of space for everyone, the sun room was a great place to relax, chill and play board games! Access straight into the garden and hot tub and bbq house. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable and the bathrooms just gorgeous. Plenty of space in kitchen for cooking and chatting and very well equipped. We would love to stay again, Ian and Isobel were lovely and booking was straight forward and hassle free. Graham the gardener is on hand if there are any problems and is very helpful. Fantastic!!
We had the fires on a couple of times, made the place really cosy.

Another lovely stay for all the family in this large family home. House large enough for bad weather days especially with hot tub.
Each year we compare other properties and find this one is our favourite.
Good for kids, pets and parents.
Local mountain bike rides and park.
Owners a pleasure to deal with, any problem their just a call away.

Reviewed April 30, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a brilliant week for my dad's 70th birthday. We had stayed before so knew what such a beautiful house it was with lush gardens and the sun room we used all the time. Theres tons of room for everyone and never felt on top of each other we had 5 adults 3 children and 2 dogs and plenty of space. This year even better with the added addition of the hot tub and bbq Hut ( which was referred to all week as the hobbit house lol). Again everything you need home from home with added little touches like the lovely flowers and a welcome pack. So once again thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

“Great break away”
Reviewed April 15, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a wonderful relaxing Easter break in the cottage. Great space for our family of 8 to move around in comfortably. The conservatory area was brilliant for evenings by the fire. Outside space was excellent for super games of hide and seek! The hot tube was enjoyed by all in a great location. We never used the BBQ hut but would have been a great extra if required.
