Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage is in a beautiful, quiet location, and was ideal for our family of four plus grandparents. There was enough room for us all, and we were very comfortable. The cottage is very well equipped, and ideal for visiting Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Borders. The owners are extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. The Mill Inn close by serves excellent food, and Biggar has good shops and the museums are worth a visit. June 2012.
  2. Very nice and made to feel welcome by the owners. April 2012.
  3. The accommodation was excellent being modernly fitted out, very clean and well presented. Being all on one floor it fitted the bill for us with a partially disabled person in the party. It also fitted the bill for us as we have 2 dogs, by having a good enclosed garden and plenty of space in the fields adjacent for the dogs to run. A disadvantage was no tumble drier to dry our clothes and most importantly dog towels. We suggested to the owner that if provided it could be coin operated to save their own power costs. We will certainly consider booking this cottage again. Oct 2011.
  4. We received a warm welcome and the cottage had everything we could wish for. Kids loved the farm location. After a busy day it was nice to come back to the cottage and relax in front of the wood burning fire. Oct 2011.
  5. This cottage is beautiful, all the fixtures and fittings are immaculate, and the couple who live in the farm couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming. A really relaxing, beautiful place to take your kids and dog! Oct 2011.
  6. This is superb spacious cottage which was great for a holiday with my now scattered children and grandchild. The addition of WiFi, which they’re planning to do soon, will make it perfect. The rural location is quiet but only a few miles from the motorway so you can get anywhere in Central Scotland easily and quickly. Aug 2011.
  7. Stunning cottage, fixtures and fittings to a high standard. Felt at home as soon as we walked through the gate. Hosts and neighbours very friendly. Ideal for a getaway from it all holiday. Tinto Hill a must climb for walkers, great views. Indian and chinese restaurants exceptional (especially carryout) in Biggar. The Mill Inn nearby is also great for an evening meal. This location could be the best kept secret in Scotland, so dont tell anyone! July 2011.
  8. This was a fantastic property - a beautiful and quiet location. The owners were there to welcome and show us round the house. They couldn’t have been more helpful! The only thing that was missing was garden seating and within half an hour of arriving it was brought to the cottage. Would definitely return. July 2011.
  9. Excellent property to stay in! It was very clean and modern. Loved it. June 2011.
