“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed July 28, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We (a family of five) spent an excellent week in Rose Cottage in July. The whole site has recently been taken over by Claire, Paul and family and it is clear that it is going to get better and better. The reception was extremely friendly and response to any queries we had was immediate and helpful. The cottage was spacious, clean and comfortable. Several bicycles were available for free use. The play barn barn was really good for badminton and with a basketball hoop. The indoor swimming pool was exceptional; half the length is at 80cm depth so safe for my youngest who is learning to swim; then there is a steep drop to 22m depth so proper swimming is also possible. This part of Dumfries and Galloway is a beautiful and sparsely populated. We spent a day and a half at the Galloway Activity Centre which is a 40 minute drive north. Wigtown (and its remarkable number of bookshops) is a short walk away. As for other things in the vicinity, we hardly scratched the surface to be honest. We would like to come back.

“Just returned home from a fantastic week at Rose Cottage”
Reviewed July 14, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We have just spent a week at Rose cottage with our two young children, my father and his dog. The cottage was just perfect, plenty room for everyone and a cot and highchair was provided for my youngest. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were spacious. The swimming pool was wonderful and we enjoyed a swim almost every day. We enjoyed exploring the local beaches, Mossyard was our favourite. Thanks Claire and Paul for being such great hosts.

“Peaceful and great location ”
Reviewed September 3, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My family of 4 plus my wife's parents have just returned from rose cottage and are already planning next yrs trip ! A nice cottage set on a in a group of cottages in farmland . The cottage was cosy and the bedrooms lovely , a nice size and dog friendly . Log fire also although being nice weather only used it once . DVD and video player with dvds etc onsite for kids to muse thru and watch . The pool was a hit with kids and went from shallow to two metres deep. The games barn was a bit run down to be honest but could be used on a rainy day . Wigtown was about a 15/20 min walk up road with shops and couple of bars , the location of cottage great , Newton Stewart about 10mile drive and garlieston a short drive other way . Sea fishing? That's my hobby so was spoilt rotten as 12 miles away Isle of Whithorn lies facing isle of Man, great sea fishing off rocks and caught plenty pollock and mackerel . Also head to burrowhead there for fishing off rock edges but be carefully as can be dangerous . So to round up, very nice host of cottages, peaceful location, cosy cottage and good value. Pool a plus but games room could maybe do with a new pool table . Bikes in barn also to use at your leisure. Can't wait to return !

Our family had a wonderful week to celebrate my dads 70th birthday. Surrounded by beautiful walks and wildlife, close to Wigtown it's a wonderful location. Ian and hazel made us feel very welcome, and the children were able to help out feeding the lambs and had so much fun swimming in the pool everyday.
