Customer Reviews of Powillimount Cottage, nr. Dumfries, sleeps 6

1st comment: If you’re looking for a peaceful bolt hole, this is it. Right next to the sea, with fabulous bird life and beautiful views. Recommend visiting Castle Douglas for produce and cafes, (especially Designs Gallery and Cafe). Lovely walks and a roaring wood burning stove to come home to, what could be better? Cottage owner very helpful and friendly. We’re looking forward to a return visit! Oct 2011.

2nd comment: The property is well situated for a quiet rural holiday with woods and beaches in easy reach. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped, when a problem did arise the owner fixed it promptly. Sept 2011.

3rd comment: The cottage was in an idyllic location a short walk from the beach. We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday visiting castles, museums and lovely cafes. A perfect location if you have a dog. June 2011.
