“Absolute Paradise”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This cottage is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and in such a wonderful location. We watched the numerous spectacular Red Kite flying overhead every day and your standard garden/woodland birds like a friendly robin and chaffinches were also regular visitors. The cottage itself is very well equipped and deceptively spacious with the twin room having amazing views out over the garden and to the woods. There were a couple of issues during our stay (e.g. previous visitors reported broken washing machine on leaving) but the owners were so quick to fix any issues that the washing machine was replaced within an hour and a half of our arrival. The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly, even down to the little box of chocolates, tea, coffee and jug of milk we found when we arrived. We were so impressed and happy with our stay that we will be looking at whether we can book again next year and will be recommending this place to anyone who will listen!

“Lovely cottage & location”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The bungalow is great -spotlessly clean well decorated & maintained, with all equipment you could need.The large, private outdoor space is good for seeing wildlife including deer, red kites & bats.The summerhouse is a bonus.Wonderful night skies here (weather permitting!)
Lots to do in the area, Galloway forest park, lots of castles & ruins,pretty small towns & the solway firth coast. A car is a must, & there was no mobile reception ( a plus in my view !)
