My wife and I have just returned from a beautiful relaxing stay at Anvil, the cottage is absolutely perfect for two people. Really nicely decorated with everything you need whilst away.
We we're lucky enough to see kingfishers in the stream with a great view from the lounge, as well as a Pine Martin ! If you want peace and quiet with the relaxing gurgle of running water from the stream to aid that relaxation this is a little bit of heaven on earth.
This is without a doubt the most beautiful spot we have stayed in
The apartment is immaculate, spotlessly clean with everything you need to for a self catering holiday
There is a huge garden which sits on the banks of a tumbling river
We saw a heron on a couple of occasions but just to sit in the garden and listen to the sound of the river is peace itself
The location is perfect for visiting the Solway Coast and we also ventured further afield to Loch Trool and even to the coast at PortPatrick
And after a long days walk what better to come back and unwind in the peace and tranquility of Anvil Cottage
Nothing is too much trouble for the owners and we would not hesitate to come back here for another holiday
Excellent cottage situated in a beautiful county. Comes will all amenities. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
The location is central for everything.
The cottage is very well equipped and is spotless.
It is set in fabulous garden and grounds with the river all around.
Very private. A real peaceful retreat.
The owners have done an amazing job with this place.
Thank you for a lovely holiday.
What a great place to stay. Owners are friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean and comfortable . We managed to see otters ,Heron,Kingfisher and Bats in our weeks stay. Great walks and village very easy to walk to . Only small problem was no wifi . But we caught up on the free Wifi in the pub :)
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Anvil Cottage and cannot praise it highly enough. Gordon and Alison made us feel so welcome at Maidenhead Forge Mill, in the most glorious garden/waterside setting, complete with mill wheels. Anvil is a spacious cottage and nothing has been overlooked. The bed is huge and so comfortable - I slept all night which I haven't done in years! If you are green you will be interested to know that they generate all their own electricity from the river. If you are looking for a peaceful holiday location you won't be disappointed. We found plenty to occupy the days in Dumfries and Galloway - gardens, castles, beaches and fishing villages, nature and wildlife.
