“Lovely place”
Reviewed July 18, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The property was as described nice big open plan living area and lots of storage in the bedrooms.
The kids loved playing football in the garden or table tennis in the games room, or feeding carrots to the ponies. The grownups liked the hot tub once the kids were in bed. The location was good to get to the activities that we had booked. D&G is a good choice with the kids.

Stayed at the above cottage for four nights, the weather was not great, but the cottage more than made up for it. The views were amazing and there was plenty to do around the area. The hot was amazing and the games room was good.

“Fantastic property - highly recommended”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends for a weekend getaway. The property exceeded our expectations, by far. The house and gardens are extremely well maintained, tidy and spotlessly clean.

On arrival, the fridge was stocked with milk, fruit juice, wine, butter and cheese. Tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and oatcakes were also available. A very nice touch! The kitchen was very well equipped with all of the pots, pans, utensils, crockery, cutlery and glasses you'll need.

Lots of towels for bathing and the hot tub were available. The hot tub was excellent, comfortably accommodating 6 adults.

The bedrooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. And three bathrooms meant that there was no queuing for showers or toilet, etc.

The owners popped in to check how we were getting along and they were very pleasant and friendly.

A fabulous weekend was had by everyone and I couldn't recommend this property enough.

Hi - would just like to put on record what an absolutely fantastic weekend we had at The Longhouse, arriving on the friday 18th March 16until the Monday 21st,
Jimmy and Jeanette could not have been more accommodating and nothing was a problem to them, everything and i mean everything is supplied at the house to ensure your stay is hassle free,
we will be booking to stay another time, location is ideal and easy to find straight off the A75.
Oh, and mustn't forget the Hot Tub, fantastic.

“WOW - better than expected!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

I do a lot of internet research to always try and find the best place I can. We needed to accommodate family with young child & friends for our sons wedding.Well from the minute we arrived I knew I had booked the best with this lovely property. It is as good if not better than the photos.Really good size spaces ,homely, but absolutely immaculate. Everything was sparkling clean and the welcome pack extremely generous to include a bottle Prosecco!! but also dishwasher tabs etc which is always so welcome on a short stay. Was also pleasantly surprised to see a beautifully presented 15 foot christmas tree!! Magical.
The house is lovely and warm especially with the log burner, (again, generous amount of logs supplied) and the beds and bedding super comfy. Bathrooms modern and spotless.
I have not even mentioned the fabulous hot tub or games room yet which was really useful for all the family and friends to keep entertained and again well maintained by the owners.
Our Grandson enjoyed watching & feeding the the 2 little ponies in the neighbouring field.
The views are lovely whether it is lashing down with rain or particularly beautiful on a cold frosty day!!
This was great for our family but would be equally fabulous for a group of friends.
I cannot recommend this house enough or the wonderful owners who are around if you need them but not intrusive. They have thought of many lovely touches to add to your stay.

Spent a long weekend here and have to say the house has all you could wish for and more, it is well equipped with extras, the welcome pack was a lovely touch, it was spotlessly clean & we could not fault one thing, the hot tub was amazing & towels plentiful, we will definitely be booking for next year.

Been here twice, Xmas with family, 4 in there late teens early 20s, mum who's 83 and myself and back again in early spring without mum. This place is just a wee slice of heaven the longhouse is very modern inside and extremely spacious and light. The whole place has underfloor heating and it has 3 very modern bathrooms with rain showers, amazing. Hot tub is kept warm continuously so no need to wait for it to heat went in at 8 one morning and as late as midnight with my wine. Views r uninterrupted for miles and no one to overlook u. It's so peaceful u can't help but unwind. Hot tub side of house gets the sun from sunset to sundown which u can watch from the hot tub as it disappears down behind the mountains, beautiful. I am hoping to go back again 2016 I can't explain enough how wonderful this place is u just need to experience it, as I said a wee slice of heaven get away from it all.
