“Amazing stay once again”
Reviewed March 3, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We decided to back to 'our cottage' (as my children call it) for a post Christmas break. Although all the national parks were closed that didn't bother us as at. We just relaxed, went for walks and had lovely family time. Once again the cottage was spotless and beautifully decorated for Christmas.

Our hosts were brilliant and nothing is too much trouble for them even when we needed a washing machine urgently. (There was not one in the cottage at that time)

We shall certainly be staying again.

Beautiful cottage, everything you need for a very comfortable stay, exceptionally clean and lovely furnishings, would recommend a visit to Dumfries House.

Just back from a lovely four night stay ay Malcolm and Lorraine's fabulous cottage. Every bit as good as last year! If out for a run in the car, Souters Inn Kirkoswald is well worth a visit as is the Dumfries Arms Cumnock. Looking forward to next visit.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 9, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Well what can we say as a family, stunning location, perfect cottage especially the little den for the children. We just love it here, the chickens, the dog and bats have all been fun too. Our hosts are exceptional and have gone out of their way to assist with a last minute dietary request of mine (forgot to get my special milk) and are on hand for information on where and what to do. Thank you for the most enjoyable stay you have a beautiful cottage to show off. There is a down side, we have to go home . So in the words of my children - we Scotland. See you soon!

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

You won't find a better holiday retreat than this anywhere in Scotland. Decor and furnishings are to a very high standard and the cottage is jam packed with mom cons, utensils and everything you will need to relax and get on with unwinding. The beds are extremely comfortable and the living room had a flat screen tv and DVD player.

You are around a hour from all major attractions, Glasgow and Edinburgh which is brilliant and there are horses and chickens on site to greet you in the morning (as well as a friendly cat)

We can't recommend this place enough. Lorraine and Malcolm are fantastic hosts and really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. You won't be disappointed !!!

What a gem of a find! Cottage very comfortable & clean best nights sleep we have had away from home. Very well equipped with cutlery and crockery. Malcom & Loraine give a nice warm welcome on arrival and also make sure you are happy with the cottage although they are not in your face The wife & I would recommend this cottage not only to friends but to anyone who likes the countryside & not remote. If we go back to this area we will definitely stay here again. We have stayed in a few cottages but this is the best one we have stayed in by far.

“Lovely relaxing cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Beautiful cottage - very well equipped and very comfortable. There were fresh flowers and delicious fresh milk and eggs on our arrival. The cottage was clean, bright and airy, and the kitchen very well equipped. The beds were comfortable, and the shower the best we have ever experienced in a self-catering cottage!
The area is excellent for exploring Dumfries & Galloway - we explored local roads by bicycle, and drove further afield to Culzean Castle for the day. We will definitely return to this lovely property in future.
Highly recommended.
