Customer Reviews of Duck Cottage, Overburns Cottages nr Biggar - Sleeps 4
1st comment: Our holiday home was very comfortable, clean and in an ideal location. We were able to bring our dog which made the holiday even better. It really felt like home from home. Sept 2011.
2nd comment: Fantastic cottage and location, we were made to feel extremely welcome. The cottage owners were on their holiday at the time, however Mrs Scott left us in the very capable hands of Ann and Adrian, who were very friendly and would have helped us out if needed. A beautiful setting for a beautiful cottage, a great base for touring around. Aug 2011.

11th Comment This property was superb. It has been renovated to a very high specification and is very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean (I am very particular about cleanliness!) and it was very pleasing to find such a high standard. Owners were very charming and we received a warm welcome and they were generous and helpful throughout our stay. It was a difficult cottage to leave! We loved it! Our thanks, please to the owners. Aug 2010.
12th Comment We loved the situation - lovely light living/dining room despite the age of the building. It is furnished and equipped to an excellent standard - plenty of everything, and of good quality. The bathrooms are both of particularly high standard. May 2010.
