Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Wonderful location. Cottage is small - perfect for 2 and a dog - but well equipped. Next door but one to a very friendly pub which serves excellent food. What more could you want?! Only quibble was the garden. A fence panel had blown down and hadn’t been replaced (apparantly this happened quite a while ago), so couldn’t let the dog out without keeping an eye on him. Wouldn’t stop us going again though. April 2012.
  2. Came for a week in March 2012, had a lovely time in the cottage, the pub next door was excellent and lots of walking all around the area. The cottage itself was really nice, all the necessities and made due to no live TV you can avoid the world if you want to. It is located 5 minutes drive away from the Galloway Forest Visitors Centre, though avoided that car part as it charges! All in all a great base to explore the area, we will definitely come again. March 2012.
  3. This cottage has the most central location for walks etc. The beds were very comfortable and proper woollen blankets provided. The heating is superb. Kitchen good (but no grill), TV only for watching DVD’s, not live telly. Nice small enclosed garden with bench table. Dog welcome, he loved the stay. Pub 50 meters away excellent, high quality very reasonably priced meals and real ales on tap. Most enjoyable 4 days, will come again! May 2011.
  4. Great little cottage. basic but enough. But the best / worst (for my waist line) was the pub next door.They were helpful, supplied excellent food and helped with suggestions of where to go etc and history of the area. March 2011.
  5. The wood burner. Nov 2010.
  6. Cottage contained everything that was needed and was ideally situated for touring the area. Aug 2010.
  7. It was compact but very comfortable & well equipped. Ideal fo 2 people & a dog. Handy pub next door. June 2010.
  8. Very tranquil, private garden, the pub was excellent. April 2010.
  9. Very quiet location next to very nice pub with real ale and home cooked food. Oct 2009.
  10. The cottage had everything that was required! It was neat and compact, the owner was so very helpful when i contacted her! Sept 2009.
  11. The cottage was very well equipped for self catering. Very pleasant small patio/ garden area. Well positioned to explore the area of Galloway. Easy reach from Glasgow airport. Ideal for couple or family of four. Aug 2007.
  12. Ideal property for two persons and their dog. Excellent walking nearby. April 2009.
  13. The cottage is in a perfect location, with Newton Stewart being only 10 minutes away by car and great walks at Loch Trool only 3 minutes away by car. The pubs hosts are more than welcoming (30 seconds from cottage) and if like us you bring a dog , you can take it into the pub. All in all an unforgettable holiday location. May 2009.
  14. A small but lovely cottage in a superb quiet rural location located a couple of hundred yards from the Southern Upland Way (long distance footpath) and couple of miles from the beautiful Loch Trool, it’s an ideal base for walking - there are a several footpaths within a mile or two - we wore out our dog by the end of the week! The very welcoming House O’Hill Hotel is right next door to the cottage and serves a small but freshly cooked menu every day except Tuesdays with good prices, very friendly staff (who are very used to muddy boots) and locals, and a fine guest beer. Having worn the dog out, we took to the car and explored the surrounding countryside - once away from the A75, the roads and beaches are very quiet indeed - even at the end of July! and the scenery is just stunning - very green and unpopulated - it really is an undiscovered corner of Scotland - Highly recommended, we’ll be back (when the dog’s paws are better, anyway!) July 2007.
