“Unique and delightful property in a gorgeous setting”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a spacious and beautifully restored property in the lovely heart of Galloway, with access to some quirkily thought out gardens and outdoor areas. We had a great time and the owners could not have been more helpful, lending us various baby equipment to make our stay easier.

The only thing lacking was white goods. The fridge is a little small given how many people the house accommodates, meaning we had to shop little and often - and there was NO WASHING MACHINE, which is not ideal when you are spending a week with a baby and a preschooler. I can heartily recommend 40 Degrees in Castle Douglas, who did us a service wash for £12.

Otherwise the whole experience was great.
PS Although there is wifi, it is typically rural so don't expect to stream netflix. No failing at all on the part of the owners, it's the price you pay for such a blissfully remote setting.
