Customer Reviews of House O'Hill Cottage nr Newton Stewart - Sleeps 2
1st comment: 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.
2nd comment: 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.
3rd comment: 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.
4th comment: 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.
