Customer Reviews of Oakbank Cottage, Dumfries , sleeps 8
1st comment: 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TV had a mind of its own and kept going to menu and changing channels on its own but everything else about the property superseded this one small complaint would certainly book this again.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.
2nd comment: 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.
3rd comment: Large property, well set out. Feb 2011.
4th comment: Accommodation was spacious. Oct 2010.
5th comment: 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.
6th comment: 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.
7th comment: 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.
8th comment: 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.
9th comment: 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.
10th comment: Very spacious, very well furnished. Large, brilliant indoor poolroom; everything you could wish + spacious grounds - lovely! Aug 2009.

13th Comment 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.

17th Comment 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.
18th Comment 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.
19th Comment The best property we have stayed at - can’t wait to go back to it! Dec 2007.
20th Comment My family and I have rented many cottages in the UK and France over the past 15 years and Oakbank was by far the best. A little expensive, but worth every penny. The swimming pool was the highlight for the kids, the quality throughout the accommodations impressed the adults. Simply perfect. Oct 2007
