Thank you for your Review
We are sorry that the bed in the master bedroom was a little hard for your liking.
The lighting is LED and when they go through a dimmer they do slightly flicker at low settings.
We were surprised that you gave us 4 star rating after the fantastic comments you wrote in the Guest Book.
We try and give all our guests a 5 Star experience and are sorry that we could not give this to you and your party.
Thank you again.
Dave & Kathleen.

“Stunning cottage, warm welcome and outstanding views of the river Nith”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

4 adults and 2 children (ages of 4 and 2), stayed in October 2016 for 5 nights. The service was fantastic, we were greeted on arrival with a lovely warm welcome and complimentary prosseco which was a nice touch. Information packs on local attractions and operational guidance for amenities were provided along with an initial tour of the property. The property itself has been tastefully refurbished to high standard with a quality finish. This is then matched by the views of the river from the floor to ceiling windows in the living room given an almost panoramic view. Sunrises and sunsets are gorgeous. Thankyou for a making our holiday one to remember.

“Sensationally Perfect”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I stayed here with my Mum, Dad and brother. Kathleen and Dave were brilliant hosts, very pleasant and kind. The cottage is second to none with an amazing wall length window looking out over the river and an equally long bench seat alongside that you can drift away while watching the wild life go by. This is by far the most beautiful property I have ever had the pleasure of staying at and would recommend to everyone, especially if they appreciate the finer things in a home and breathtaking scenery.

“Just perfect!”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cottage is lovely with a huge window in the living room where we could watch the birds flying up and down the estuary and the weather change every 10 minutes! The bathrooms are gorgeous and Kathleen's upholstery and artwork finish off the house perfectly. The area is great for cycling and we had a couple of good meals just along the road at the Nith hotel. We would also recommend Neuros on the Crighton Estate - next time we will give the spa a go! Thanks for your warm welcome Kathleen and Dave.

“Superb Stylish Cottage”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Fantastic, stylish modernised cottage with everything you could need. Very quiet location but only a few mins by car from Dumfries city centre. Beautifully modernized and immaculately presented by the owners, who were very helpful if needed.
Stunning views and great location for visiting Dumfries and surrounding attractions.
Very special holiday that we will remember for a long time and will definitely be back.
