“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 13 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is our second weekend in this homely, cosy cottage. The scenery in the area is breathtaking and you don't even have to leave the armchair at the window to see it. To look out of a living room straight onto rolling hills is so calming. The cottage reminds me of my grandparents home so has a very special place in my heart. I instantly feel at home and so do our dogs. I should have said this is a pet friendly cottage and is ideal as there are so many great places to walk dogs (I recommend Polmaddy nearby but there are countless other places). The cottage itself has everything you need, a double bedroom and a room with bunk beds, everything you need in the kitchen as well as a large living and dining room. I don't think I'd ever tire of this place. Highly recommended.

We booked an impromptu visit to take advantage of the Dark Sky park. Unfortunately the weather was against us but the cottage was well positioned to visit all the areas we wanted to visit. 40 mins drive to the Red Kites, 45 mins to the Red Deers, 30 mins to Clattershaws visitor centre (sky park) and 10 mins to the Osprey centre (closed but beautiful views of Loch Doon).

The cottage is located in a small hamlet which has a visitor centre (closed our whole visit), a church with old wall stairs, a post office and a lovely tearoom run by a lovely couple. The prices in the tearoom are quite reasonable for the food we got and the hour and 1/2 of free wifi was worth it. We couldn't get any telephone signal and there was no wifi at the cottage so if we needed to call out we would have had to walk to the other end of the hamlet.

“Beautiful part of the Country”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Warm welcome from Bob and shown how everything worked. Very homely and comfortable. A bit out of the way but set in beautiful surroundings and was great having the coal
fire on the cold miserable nights as
weather wasn't great.

All in all we still had a great time.

my wife and 2 young kids had such a wonderful time at this cottage. Aside from the picture postcard location, the home itself is overtly homely like something out of an Emily Bronte novel. The owners were attentive and lovely. I couldn't recommend staying here more
