As owners we endeavour to meet all guests on arrival to hand over the keys, show you how the heating works and do a brief check that everything is ok for you. We will then leave you to enjoy your break unless of course you want to have a chat about the local area, we are happy to answer any questions you may have. We can be contacted by phone throughout your stay should any queries arise and live only 5mins away should any issues require us to visit Viewforth.

Just returned from a last minute short break. Top marks to the cottage...had everything you could possibly need as well as a good internet connection and even a Wii. Dog (and children) had lots of enclosed space to run around in.If you have younger children I recommend a visit to both the cocoa bean factory and cream o'galloway. Will definitely...

A really well equipped, cosy, very clean property in a quiet location surrounded by stunning walks. The enclosed garden was brilliant for our dogs. Local shops are within easy walking distance and the town itself has lots of history and plenty to see and do. I'd recommend this holiday rental to anyone! Excellent!
