“Perfect weekend retreat.”
Reviewed March 23, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Loved this cottage from the moment we stepped over the threshold, Right on the harbour in this quaint but very friendly seaside village, which lent it to be a trifle windy thanks to the return of the beast from the east !!!! Walks straight outside along the coast, and good access to all parts of the beautiful rolling countryside which is Dumfries and Galloway. The cottage is very well appointed even if you eat out every night, with little extra touches ....cosy throws .....bathrobes and slippers to mention just two.Light and airy decor with an L shaped sofa , somewhere I was more than happy to sit and relax in !! Once the wind dropped it became apparent just how peaceful the cottage is. Very friendly locals at The Harbour Inn , the landlord chatting to us made us very welcome and comfortable, THE MOST fabulous blazing fire, that warmed you right through . Definately recommend this place. Many thanks to Betty for her quick response to our queries whilst we were there.

Reviewed November 8, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

The location is amazing ,right on the Harbour..From the minute we entered this beautiful place we were hooked. It is very cosy and tastefully furnished. Everything you need is provided,even towling robes.Added bonus of having a toilet downstairs.We had this break before my husband goes to hospital.Betty the owner told us it had healing qualities and the area sure does. We were blessed with great weather so very healthy and relaxing walks.Also the Harbour Inn was so friendly.We didn't,t ant to come home will be back,though don,t think place will ever be empty.

“Beautiful Cottage and comfortable stay”
Reviewed October 29, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Slipway Cottage is a beautiful cottage that is superbly decorated with a delightful maritime theme and lovely palette colours. A fantastic place you look forward to come back to after a day out exploring.
The cottage is very comfortable with all the modern comfort; heating; TV; Internet etc.

The location is also very beautiful: just outside the tiny harbour with a stunning view and very very quite! The little village of Garlieston is the perfect place to unwind and relax. This cottage has a certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor for a reason - it has been beautifully furnished and decorated to a very high standard to make it very comfortable for the guests.

Betty and her husband have been great hosts, and communicated with us throughout.
We would recommend the cottage without hesitation. A fantastic and comfortable haven for anyone exploring the gorgeous Dumfries and Galloway area.
Thank you to you both.

Andrea and Angeles.

“Perfect peace by the harbour”
Reviewed October 13, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Well equipped getaway for two. Lovely views over the bay. The nearby pub serves good food. Starting with our welcome from Betty, everywhere we went we met friendly service and high quality. Lots to see and do in the area - the Mull of Galloway is a must!

“Well equipped Cottage, perfectly located in a quiet village, a totally relaxing stay.”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Our family really enjoyed the week we had at this beautiful little cottage. Great views over the bay and so close to the nature around. We were privileged to see bats in mid September. We didn't venture very far, utilising the good facilities in the cottage and benefitting from a thoroughly relaxing week. Nice to get away from it all.
