Nutkin Cottage was the perfect cottage, Clean, Homely and cosy. Fantastic surroundings, with great hosts. We won't hesitate to book again next year.
A massive "thank you" for a wonderfully relaxing stay at warm and comfortable Nutkin Cottage, so clean and welcoming for us and our two dogs. Such peace and quiet here! Marvellous to watch very many varieties of birds visiting the feeding stations around the cottage. Galloway Forest is magical and such a pleasure to walk from the front door straight onto the paths. Autumnal tree colours and the array of coloured fungi is incredible here. Dark skies studded with a million stars are awe-inspiring. Lots of interesting dog-friendly places and areas to visit locally, Threave Castle, Cream O'Galloway, Culzean Castle to name a few. We've previously stayed in Drey Cottage too and this is equally well fitted out and very comfortable. We will be back soon to recharge our batteries again soon.
Country lovers paradise. A great base to explore a far reaching and beautiful rural area. Delightful walks right on the doorstep. Great comfort and a warm welcome from Jennie.
Nutkin cottage provides all home comforts - and more - with little extra treats like cake and fresh flowers on arrival and home made bread too.The owners, Jennie and Vince, thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. The cottage is less than fifty yards from the entrance to the forest park with walks to suit all abilities and visitor centre less than five minutes away. Newton Stewart, Wigtown and Kirkudbright are a short drive away and Castle Douglas is within easy reach. The scenery in the surrounding area is at times breathtaking. We have had many cottage holidays but this one has surpassed them all. I would highly recommend Nutkin cottage.
This lovely cottage is very comfortable with plenty of space even for five of us and a dog!!! Jennie and Vince are great hosts ensuring we had all we needed and even supplying homemade cake and bread which was delicious, plus we got to watch Red squirrels in the garden. The cottage is situated very close to Kirroughtree visitor centre making it easy to access all the walks and bike trails, and Newton Stewart is only a Short drive away for shopping.
We have been coming to this area for many years as we enjoy it so much but this is our first stay at Nutkin Cottage and we hope to be back soon!
The welcome at Nutkin cottage (a smiling hostess to tell us useful information, and a dining table laid for afternoon tea, including a homemade fruit loaf) was just lovely. We delighted in watching the woodland birds and the red squirrels feeding at the bird table just beyond the windows. The cottage is attractive, warm, comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped. It is also spotlessly clean.
Ten minutes country walk and you can be at the Kiroughtree Visitors Centre of Galloway Forest Park. Three miles drive and you can be at Newton Stewart, a small town with restaurants, Sainsbury's, Aldi, and lots of independent shops. We visited Castle Kennedy Gardens, Dunskey Gardens, the Mull of Galloway and Wigtown book town, but there are many more things one could do. We would very much like to visit both Galloway and Nutkin again. We'd wholeheartedly recommend both.
