Customer Reviews of Boatrig Farmhouse, Auldgirth - Sleeps 9-10
1st comment: My family and myself had a great time at Boatrig. The farmhouse was beautiful and a lovely peaceful location. I would definitely go back. May 2012.
2nd comment: There were 5 generations in our company, ( 9 months to 87 years ). Loads of room for us all to have our own space. Everything we needed in the cottage was there, a home from home very comfortable. Great walks, saw our first red squirrel in years. We all wanted to stay on had a great time, we will go back, everything exceeded our expectations. April 2012.
3rd comment: Boatrig Farmhouse exceeded all our expectations by far. We had a wonderful time. We chose it as we were getting married at Gretna Green. We could not believe how fantastic and cosy Boatrig was. Our son a keen mountain biker found a track on the hill behind the property and was in his element. We could let our two dogs run free in the open field to the fore and take them exploring in the hills behind. The owners are wonderful, they left us alone yet were on hand to help. They left us a little welcome pack which was lovely of them. The cottage had everything we needed and it’s enormous giving our whole family space both to be together and space of our own. It was a true delight. The photos do not do this place justice it is PERFECT! Thank you. We will definitely be back! March 2012.
