Customer Reviews of Cargen Cottage, by Dumfries - Sleeps 2

1st comment: The cottage is set on a private road overlooking fields. The cottage itself is cosy and is what we expected from a quaint little country home. The owners were excellent and helped us settle in then left us to our own devices, but were always on hand if we had any queries. My husband and I would recommend this holiday cottage to everyone. June 2012.

2nd comment: Excellent cottage with friendly and helpful owners living next door. We were in Scotland on a mountain biking holiday and were not disappointed, the cottage is located 10 minutes away from Mabie forest and 30 minutes from Ae and Dalbeattie forest. The cottage was clean and comfortable with bike storage also available. May 2012.

3rd comment: This was the third time we stayed at the cottage, and will continue to come back. The location is fantastic, and the accomodation itself is very comfortable. March 2012.

4th comment: A nice little cottage with everthing you require and very handy for main routes to places. Very comfortable with a very welcoming owner. Sept 2011.
