“A very enjoyable stay”

My father and I needed somewhere practical to stay in the area for work purposes. Nutkin Cottage was the best solution for us in terms of location and affordability. I'm pleased to say that the accommodation was exactly as described - comfortable and clean accommodation in an idyllic location. The only regret we have is that we didn’t have more free time to enjoy the abundance of wildlife and beautiful scenery on the doorstep of the cottage. Also, a big thank you to the owner, Jennie, who made us feel very welcome and for finding my lost watch!

“Heaven”
Reviewed December 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed here at Nutkins cottage, warm friendly welcome from Jenny, we loved the cottage, home from home, bread cake and tea for our arrival. Loved the area with being right in the centre of the Galloway Forrest Park, lovely walks, good weather, plenty to do around, Newton Stewart only 5 mins away in the car. Loved watching the red squirrels coming into the garden, we will be returning, thanks Jenny x

“Lovely in every way.”

Just had a week in this lovely cottage. It is spacious, clean, comfortable. Lovely rural location with walking from the door, but less than a mile to the main road. Many hours can be spent just watching all the birds on the feeders - top up bird food was provided, and needed! Jenny welcomed us with the table laid for tea and a lovely fruit cake. Fresh flowers in the lounge. Modern, bright kitchen which is well equipped. Only negative comments are: a shower over the bath in main bathroom would be welcome, and more ovenproof dishes or casserole type dishes. Overall a very thoughtfully equipped and furnished cottage with plenty of space.
