Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We had a great family holiday in this fabulous house. The youngest being 2 and the oldest 64. The pool was just fantastic. We met our host, who is a lovely lady and we hope to go back. May 2012.
  2. The property was excellent the only complaint if you can call it a complaint was that the TV had a mind of its own and kept going to menu and changing channels on its own but everything else about the property superseded this one small complaint would certainly book this again. April 2011.
  3. The property was wonderfully situated, spotlessly clean, the layout was fantastic, the kitchen was magnificent and the swimming pool was to die for. My family were in Dumfries to bury my father but the accomodation helped us forget our mourning whilst we were there and made it a much more pleasant time under the circumstances. Jan 2011.
  4. Large property, well set out. Feb 2011.
  5. Accommodation was spacious. Oct 2010.
  6. Very well furnished and spacious accommodation; sufficient crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils etc for all our need. The swimming pool area is wonderful; the garden area is large, private and very well kept. Aug 2010.
  7. Quiet and secluded with plenty of room for children to play outside safely and within vision. Plenty of space for 6 adults and 3 small children inside too. Fabulous house - more than a home from home and feels like a home, not a rented holiday house. Pool area fantastic especially for children and families. May 2010.
  8. This was a wonderful property, a real home from home feel with extraordinary fixtures and fittings. Pure luxury. The pool was a haven to relax in. The bedding and all soft furnishings were of excellent quality. The kitchen was extremely well fitted out, nothing was overlooked or forgotten. It is a beautiful house and one that we would definitely return to. Dec 2009.
  9. The house was very spacious and it excellent order. Clearly money has been spent here. The kitchen was superb. The pool area really was the outstanding feature and the reason we booked the property in the first place. It was peaceful and the views were mostly excellent. Nov 2009.
  10. Oakbank Cottage was the best equipped holiday home that we have ever stayed in. It had everything we need and more and, although it is on the edge of a housing estate, once you are in the property it feels like you are a cottage in the country, with beautiful views and deer that wander in the garden. Wonderful! Aug 2009.
  11. Very spacious, very well furnished. Large, brilliant indoor poolroom; everything you could wish + spacious grounds - lovely! Aug 2009.
  12. The accommodation was excellent, the best we have stayed in. The owners were very helpful, can’t wait to go back. March 2008.
  13. Cottage extremely well equipped. Swimming pool and whole swimming area fantastic for all family. Always something to do if weather bad. April 2008.
  14. This property was simply out of this world - we were amazed by the space we had, the quality of all the furnishings and equipment in the house. The swimming pool was the icing on the cake and we cannot wait to return - unfortunately it is fully booked for the rest of this year. Feb 2008.
  15. Best house we have been to, would love to go back. April 2008.
  16. Best we have ever stayed at - this is our 2nd visit and we will be back! Dec 2008.
  17. This property is truly wonderful and the owner extremely friendly and helpful. We have been recommending! March 2008.
  18. The accommodation was absolutely fabulous with the swimming pool being the icing on the cake. The size of the pool would put most local public leisure facilities to shame!!! I have recommended this property to everyone who will listen. Fantastic, we’ll definitely be back. Jan 2008.
  19. Excellent house to get away from it all, brilliant pool, very clean, not overlooked by surrounding properties, got everything for an excellent holiday. July 2008.
  20. The best property we have stayed at - can’t wait to go back to it! Dec 2007.
