“Relaxing & Family Friendly”
Reviewed February 11, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Granary Cottage last September very much and are looking forward to staying again. The cottage was great with patio doors and a lovely picnic table where we could easily see our child playing on the swings which allowed him a great degree of freedom whilst at the same time being in view. Our eight year old son loved feeding the chickens and it was funny to watch them following him around. It is the kind of holiday that leaves you with happy memories such as our son learning to go a bike in the barn. After that there was no stopping him as we hired a bike in the Galloway Forest and off he went cycling for miles. The swimming pool was an added bonus as our son loves swimming and couldn't wait each day to get in there. We really had a super time and although we were on holiday for a month travelling all over the UK some of our fondest times were spent at Granary Cottage and the surrounding area where there is an abundance of stuff to see and do. Castle Douglas was great to visit and we loved the shops. I tried liquorice ice cream. Yum! We visited a castle, went to a local market and we even saw a wicker man in a field. For us this holiday was a great combination as we could relax at Granary Cottage which is situated on a working farm with lots of animals or we could choose from a whole range of sight seeing trips/activities to visit in the local area. We would also like to say how friendly and helpful the owner Hazel was which adds to the whole holiday experience. We look forward to staying again.

“What a wonderful break”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a fun filled week at the Courtyard Cottages complex. The owners, Ian and Hazel, were great and we got to see the farm including a new born lamb and the kids had the opportunity to name two new cows! Lots to do at the farm and the swimming pool was great, we also had fun trying to play badminton in the play barn. Wigtown is a great to visit and we discovered (with a lot of local help) some really nice beaches, we even managed to go swimming a few times in the sea. Definitely a place we would recommend and we look forward to going back. Thanks again to Ian and Hazel for their excellent hospitality.

The service is excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The cottages are well equipped and comfortable. We especially love the wood burning stoves and the patio and garden area with play facilities for the kids. There is a brilliant barn with games for the kids to play and a swimming pool in another barn. The local area has so much to offer for all tastes - books, coffee shops, biking, walking, Cream of Galloway play for kids, water sports nearby for canoeing. We have been 9 times and have recommended to friends. It is excellent value for money.
