“A wonderful house in a wonderful location”
Reviewed October 31, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We booked our October mid-term break to stay at East Gable with family and friends. The house itself is beautiful, clean and offers lots of space. Having hired a number of rental properties over the years we found this one to be very well stocked. It was very clean and we enjoyed eating all together at the large kitchen table and the two sitting rooms it offered.

The garden and surrounding area are gorgeous. We spent many hours walking in the forest on the doorstep of the property. There were lots to do in the surrounding area for children and many day trips to enjoy. While it rained for the first two days we found plenty to do.

I must also mention that I left my laptop at the house and both the cleaner and the owner were incredibly helpful and returned my laptop to me, much to my relief!

I would highly recommend both this fabulous house and the area.

Top tip - don't just look on the internet for activities visit the tourist information office for leaflets.

“Very roomy converted church modern holiday cottage”

Just off the Main Street this holiday cottage is in a lovely setting with a stream running alongside. Once inside you would not know it was once a church. Very modern with plenty of space for two couples & a teenager. Large kitchen/diner/lounge downstairs. Second floor bathroom, twin room & double room, third floor double room with en suite & top floor lounge. It would improve the cottage had towels been provided. I did contact the owner who said they wasn't provided because people have allergies to some wash powder ! Personally I think customers could make their own mind up about this whether to use or not. Fitting 5 people plus luggage into the car was hard enough never mind having to pack a weeks worth of towels. The kitchen equipment could be changed as looking well used especially baking tins. I placed a wooden chopping board on top of the bin when we left because upon arrival it had a big crack in it, not exactly hygienic. Welcome pack such as milk would of been gratefully accepted but Spar supermarket is one min away. A shelf for toiletries would be a great help in the bathroom & I noted a lot of customers mentioned how bad the tv's where. I agree, very old, bad picture & too small for a large lounge. The beds where very comfy & clean. This cottage is just off the path from the visitors centre you do get a lot of people passing your door & garden & next door (west wing can only access their car through your garden, so not exactly private. One morning pulled open the bedroom curtains to see a strange woman sat on a chair with her feet up on our bench reading a book & having her breakfast, and she wasn't from next door !! Shame with just a few tweets this could be a fab cottage

“A comfortable place to stay”
Reviewed August 11, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

We've stayed in both East and West Gables and have enjoyed being at both of them. They are very clean and contain everything required for a pleasant stay, although it you are there during cold weather I'd recommend taking along a blanket for each bed. The showers are incredible, better than any power shower. However, if you have mobility problems, both houses are span three floors so there are lots of steps. The river Fleet runs right next to the houses and while the garden areas are small they have a picnic bench to enjoy the view. The houses are very close to the Mill on the Fleet which has a good coffee shop and tourist information, as well as a museum and fantastic second hand book shop on the top floor - great for a rainy day. The bus to Dumfries stops right outside if you don't want to drive and there's a Spar and Key Store within a couple of minute's walk if you run out of milk. There are also several pubs within easy staggering distance and walks through the woods and along the river Fleet. I think they are very good value for money, which is why we have stayed there 3 times in the last year.

“Lovely accommodation for family break”
Reviewed January 9, 2011 for a stay in October 2010

Nice, bright conversion with plenty of room.
Kitchen was well equipped with large dining area.
The main lounge was on the third floor and was a little trek if you needed something from the kitchen!
Slighty musty smell from condensation on the main church window on the side of the property.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend to others.
