The cottage offered a very comfortable and well equipped self catering holiday let. The location is beautiful with a wide range of holiday activities, ranging from very active pursuits to beautiful places to chill out.Great value for money too.

“Great short break in a stunning place.”
Reviewed June 16, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Glentrool is a stunning area. Cottage is cosy and practical- perfect starting point for exploring the Galloway hills.

Bedroom and bathroom clean, living room and some cutlery however were a little dirty, would put this down to the last people to stay. No big deal.

Thanks, will come again!

“"Home in the heart of Glentrool forest"”
Reviewed April 22, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The semidetached house is located in a small village in the Glentrool forest with its own access to the forest where you can find 5000years old neolithic chambered cairn just less than 500m away!
This is a surprisingly spacious very well equipped "home from home like" house.
We would love to come again.

The cottage is semi detached on a small estate and backs onto a small area of woodland from where you can access one of the main forest tracks. I have been rather picky in giving four stars, and this is only due to the bathroom being downstairs (the landing and stairs creak so if you are a light sleeper you hear every movement) and if you choose to read, the TV/Radio next door can be quite loud, sometimes all day. Having said that, the beds are comfortable, there are more than enough books, games, DVDs to keep anyone occupied, the heating system is very efficient, picnic table in the private back garden a lovely addition, well equipped kitchen and fantastic shower. Would we stay again - most certainly.

“Good location”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Having spent a week here it was an ideal spot for MTB at glentrool just down the road.The house had everything you needed (our last place didn't even have toilet roll at least till we brought some so we always travel well equipt now)The coalfire is really lovely and warm as it did get a bit chilly at night.The shower is great!We played the board games when it rained so they came in handy.We think WiFi would be useful to have here too.There's plenty of everything here in this cottage,everything has been thought of.I would recommend it especially for glentrool 7 stanes.
