Me, my partner and our dog really enjoyed our stay here. Friendly owners, lovely cottage with everything you need in a beautiful town. Only a short drive to Dumfries where we visited the local pubs with our dog.
Will definitely return in the summer!

“A friendly welcome to this small, but clean and tidy accommodation”

A very friendly welcome awaited us when we arrived on 30th May. The property was small, but clean and tidy, with comfortable beds and linen. It was perfect for the long sight-seeing weekend we had booked. Unfortunately the wifi/internet connection did not work for us during our stay.

“A trip to the country”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

We arrived for a short break on the 25th May and were struck by the very friendly reception from the owner. She showed us round the cottage and explained how things worked. A good start. We were then struck by the standard of the accommodation and the facilities. Down to the fresh milk awaiting us in the fridge. Although the Cottage was compact it was exactly as described. The place was clean and welcoming. The beds were so comfortable and ensured a good nights sleep. The price of our stay was very reasonable. Add all this to the Dumfries countryside with its stunning scenery and you have the ingredients for a wonderful trip. This is exactly what we had " a wonderful trip". Thank you Anna.
