“An inspiring base for an unforgettable holiday”
Reviewed July 2, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This was a very comfortable, well equipped cottage in a beautiful setting. This was an ideal location to explore and sample the delights of Galloway. We were very fortunate with the weather - the temperature ranged between 25 and 32 degrees every day. This cottage will be recommended to all.

“Great stay!”
Reviewed June 13, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Perfect cottage which had everything for a wonderful relaxing week. Very comfortable with good views. Shorts and Tshirt weather! We were staying in the area cycling and exploring and the cottage was ideally placed for this. Superb scenery with rolling hills and not too strenuous for cycle rides! The only thing I would suggest is too find out where the cafes are before heading out cycling or take a picnic.
Lynn was very welcoming and had left a lovely basket with goodies and a bottle of wine. Yummy cake too! There was also a shed for the bikes. Our 7 month Border Terrier came too and he thoroughly enjoyed scampering through the nearby field every morning.
I would recommend The Barn and will return and stay if we are in the area again.

“Barn at Glenturk near Wigtown”
Reviewed August 28, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The cottage was lovely and well equipped especially the kitchen. Their where plenty of leaflets on local sites and attractions which we found very useful.
The only negative was the lack of children's play area as advertised and shown in the photos.

Reviewed August 26, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Fabulous!! The photos don't do it justice. We had a lovely welcome basket when we arrived, which really was very welcome. The house was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable. I was quite sad to leave our lovely bedroom. The views are stunning! I would definitely recommend The Barn at Glenturk to anyone. I would suggest taking some citronella candles if you like to leave the patio doors open in the evening.

“Fantastic, cosy and clean.”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed for a few days in the two bedroom house. It was very fresh and cosy and plenty of space. The childrens swing etc could do with a revamp but it was great to have a wee play area for the kids to play at. The garden outside was also a great for them to play bout in.
We were visiting family near the area so it was great to be able to have our own space in such a beatiful landscape. Would highly recommend this place and will be using it again when we visit again.

“Very convenient for exploring a wide area”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Had a lovely week here with my husband and mother in law at the end of June. Am pleased to say Wi-Fi is now available (not password protected). Cottage was very clean, tidy, light and airy and had all the equipment we needed for our stay. Very comfortably furnished upstairs and down. The cottage is very well situated for Wigtown and for exploring the wider area.

Just a couple of niggles. The ensuite to the double bedroom had a shower over the bath but with no shower screen or curtain the water went all over the toilet and floor. My 6'2" husband had to shower in mother in law's shower cubicle each morning as there was hardly enough clearance from the ceiling for him to stand and shower in the bath.

Also first time in all the self catering cottages we have rented over the years that we haven't had a welcome visit (or phone call) from the owner.

Overall though, had a lovely week and would definitely consider staying here again in the future.
