“Simply stunning!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

My fiancée and I spent four nights in gill cottage with our two year old miniature schnauzer. The cottage is lovely and cozy and the views are breath taking! We were made to feel so welcome by the family owners and settled very quickly!! We were sad to leave, I even think our dog has the holiday blues! Will definitely be back!

Having been to the same cottage for the last 7 years running this year we needed something different, something for the adults once the kids had gone to bed. Tottergill caught the eye with the hot tubs, and Garth cottage caught it again with the larger garden space, double aspect and great views. Met on arrival by Ken, it was a case of "blah blah blah" when he was showing us the tub because we couldn't keep away from the view. Thankfully he took it very well and didn't beat us up too much for not listening!

Everything we could have needed, even a bit of colder damp weather was very welcome - much better being in the tub when it's colder. Watching the view change every 5 minutes was amazing, from the deck, the tub or the garden.

Handy for the M6, but not handy in the estate agent sense - 15 minutes away (not 15 yards). Whch means there's opportunities in both directions - the south lakes isn't very far down the M6, north for cross-border shenanigans if you want to get wed in Gretna or head further into the land of the barbarians to the north (quote from some emporer a few years back), handy too for the A69 east to Newcastle (unless your satnav tries to turn you onto it near Brampton - the right turn ahead is actually impossible due to a 50 foot difference in height of the two roads).

Really friendly family business, well grounded too. Really pleased that our "cheating" stay turned out so well, and we will be back.

Did I mention there's a great view....?

We have just returned from our honeymoon at Tottergill. We stayed in Mill Barn. We honestly didn't want to leave!! From a very friendly and warm welcome as we arrived, set off nicely with homemade cake to the feeling of nothing was too much trouble... All we had to do was ask if needed. The whole stay was just perfect!!!
The views are amazing, with the hot tub set in the just the right place so you can relax and take in the areas beauty!!
On arrival the cottage was immaculate and very well equipped for our stay!
We would not hesitate in recommending Tottergill as a beautiful, relaxing piece of heaven!!
We can't wait to return!!!

I have just returned from Tottergill farm after spending 4 nights in the Tower barn with my husband and our 2 dogs. We honestly did not want to leave. The barn is absolutely stunning, very spacious and well thought out. It has amazing views and the hot tub is a nice extra too. Stephen and Joyce the owners were very friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend staying here. You need your car to get around as is it is a very rural location but this is part of its appeal. It's ideal for a relaxing break and the highest standard of dog friendly accommodation I have ever been too.

Fantastic luxury properties catering for a wide variety of needs. Perfect for romantic holidays or family holidays in a stunning, peaceful location. The owners have thought of everything. Tottergill hits the ten out of ten mark on everything. This was our second visit this year, and I am just about to check availability for our next break at Tottergill :-) Thank you very much Stephen, Joyce, Vicki, Ken and Reuben - it has been an absolute delight! Looking forward very much to our return - hopefully sooner rather than later!!! :-)

We visited as a family last week: what a wonderful time we had, the cottages are beautifully kept, based in idlic surroundings - Scottish Borders and Lake District .When we arrived at the cottage we had tea, coffee, chocolate and homemade flapjacks awaiting us, and juice for my niece as well as fresh flowers.

We were provided with towels, slippers and dressing gowns. The jacuzzi was a fantastic addition to this homely and sweet cottage. The cottage has everything you could possibly need from pots/pans, to washing/dryer machines with detergents.

I Can't recommend Tottergill highly enough, the family owners are friendly, efficient and thoughtful.

Great for family, friends or romantic getaway.

Thank you Stephen, Joyce, Ken and Vicki for making it a wonderful few days- wish it could have been longer!

My husband Mark & I have just spent 7 blissful days at Tottergill, staying at Gill Cottage together with our 5 year old Cocker Spaniel Baxter. Needless to say, we were very sad to leave, the week has flown! We arrived on 26th June 2014, the day after our wedding, so we needed a rest. We arrived to cakes, chocolates, fresh flowers and Champagne which we drank in our hot tub looking out at the most wonderful view...
We visited the Lake District, but I can honestly say that when we return to Tottergill we will not bother driving all week long. There are endless walks from the doorstep and the route maps provided within the cottage are fantastic.
The cottage has everything you need, including a lovely wood burner...
I could go on and on. Baxter is sulking, we feel gutted to have left and will be rebooking.
Thank you Tottergill x
Emma, Mark & Baxter
