1st comment: Perfect for walking /golfing holiday( with large dog ). Easy to manage accommodation which is also attractive. Village shop has everything! Truly. Fresh meat from superb local butcher, no need to go further to shop. Nov 2011.
2nd comment: Beautiful comfy cottage, with some very thoughtful touches. Great location - clean beaches and towns like Castle Douglas for good shops nearby. Oct 2011.
3rd comment: This cottage lived up to the comments we had read. It was very comfortable, warm and our 7 year old loved the ’secret’passages in the enclosed garden. Oct 2011.
4th comment: Perfect holiday cottage - easy to find, great location with lovely little shop just across the road. Perhaps the most comfortable cottage we have ever stayed in - too nice to leave! Has been beautifully renovated by the very friendly owners with all home comforts. Lovely walks direct from cottage into the forest or down to the beach. Great for dog-owners - our labrador loved his first holiday! Aug 2011.
5th comment: Excellent cottage. A good base for exploring the area. Best beach was Sandyhills. July 2011.
6th comment: Furnished to a good standard, with all amenities neccesary to enjoy a good break. Feb 2011.
7th comment: The cottage was gorgeous. It was spotless and had every convenience. The owners had left us a welcome pack with milk, wine, and a starter fuel pack for the wood burning stove. It had good off road parking. It was in an ideal location for peace and quiet but close to a small shop that supplied most essential items. Nov 2010.
8th comment: Great location, very comfortable cottage - finished to a high standard! Oct 2010.

11th Comment Excellent facilities - well resourced and in a very good location. Very well cared for and very clean. Helpful owners who cared about us having a good time but also sensitive to our needs and privacy. July 2010.
12th Comment Spacious, well situated, finished to a fabulous standard, a great place to relax and a good base for visiting the surrounding area. Oh and really friendly cows in the field next door, all with individual name tags. June 2010.
13th Comment The property had recently been refurbished and was clean, comfortable, spacious and warm. It was in a great location for touring the South West of Scotland. May 2010.
14th Comment Outstanding in every way would highly recommend. Garden secure for dog. Recently refurbished to very high standard. Great living space, exceptionally light & sunny cottage. Wonderful friendly & welcoming owners. Even supplied dog bowl, towel & welcome treats for Lucy the dog. Owner requests no dog upstairs so needs to be well behaved, as stairs are in open living space, only inside door downstairs is to lounge. May 2010.
15th Comment Newly renovated to high standard. April 2010.

Awesome area to visit. March 2010.
