Customer Reviews of Muirhead Cottage, Thornhill, sleeps 4

1st comment: Even though the photo’s of this property are good, they do not do it justice as we had a nice surprise when we turned up because it is bigger than it looks inside. Everything was in its place when we arrived, neat and tidy with essentials having been bought for us such as tea and milk. Overall we enjoyed this holiday so much, my partner loves visiting Scotland and I’m sure we will be visiting this cottage again. Thank you for giving us such an enjoyable and reasonably priced week away. Feb 2012.

2nd comment: Just the perfect break I needed - 2nd stay and hope to be back next year. Nov 2011.

3rd comment: The cottage was exactly as shown and described in the brochure. I would recommend this cottage highly. The garden is very secure making it suitable for people with young children or dogs. Sept 2011.

6th comment: Our second visit to this property. We couldn’t fault the property or location. It is wonderful for a relaxing break and we were lucky to have good weather for most of the week. April 2011.

7th comment: Homely, well equipped cottage with everything that we needed. Felt secluded but was only a stonesthrow from the quaintest village I have ever visited. Great home from home for us and our young family. We loved the enclosed garden area for the children to play safely. Would recommend, and will be visiting again during the season. March 2011.
