I can only say that But and Ben is a superb cottage to stay in. The location is perfect, the facilities are better than you could ever imagine and nothing has been left to chance. All that anyone could need is provided (and more), plus the owners, Alison and John make the whole experience wonderful. I cannot praise this cottage enough and know that anybody that books it will have a marvellous stay and want to return.
But and Ben's in a very quiet location in the delightful town of Gatehouse of Fleet. It's close to good pubs and a couple of local shops.
It's incredibly clean, warm and cosy, even when the Beast from the East was here.
It's been very well converted and beautifully fitted out, with everything you need for your stay. There's even a Nespresso with a choice of coffees. And an Alexa....Good Wi-fi too.
Lovely comfy bed and an excellent shower, with rain shower and side jets. There's a pretty garden and patio with furniture.
Alison's the perfect hostess and justifiably proud of But and Ben.
We'd be back like a shot.
This is a great wee cosy cottage as a base in Gatehouse of Fleet. Everything you could want and need has been included in your stay. Free WiFi, facilities for washing and drying clothes,his and hers dressing gowns, toiletries, etc. Lovely cosy cottage and nice and quiet but close to all the local amenities. Was lovely to be met by Alison, who gave a great tour of the cottage, and how to work all the gadgets. Lovely wee extra as a welcome gift with shortbread, the local paper and a nice bottle of wine!
The cottage was absolutely spotless. Will definitely be back and would recommend it to all my friends.
Really lovely cottage everything you need
Very well maintained great people
Alison had time to explain everything on showing us around
Would recommend this to everyone
And love to go again
Thank you for a great week
First time visit to this cottage and would certainly return. Well done to Alison & John the accommodation was superb and we could not have wished for anything more. Great base for exploring both the local walks and the wider area. Good idea having maps of the local walks in the welcome folder, we really enjoyed them. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Gatehouse of Fleet and would definitely recommend the But & Ben. We received a warm welcome on arrival and a lovely complementary selection of local produce. Alison took time to show us round and explain the many extras in this lovely holiday cottage. Alison and John have finished this holiday home to a very high standard and we could not have asked for any more comforts, we especially loved the super spa shower. We enjoyed three visits to the Masonic Arms, sampling their hostelry and conservatory dinning which was again to a high standard. The area is beautiful, tranquil, peaceful and great for taking life at a slower pace. Look forward to a return visit.
This accommodation is definately five star. *****
Kind Regards, John & Frances Burns, Glasgow, Scotland
Beautiful quiet location in unspoilt part of Scotland.Modern accommodation with a high level of cleanliness. This property will not disappoint. Many extras included more akin to a five star hotel.Owners very helpful and couldn't do enough for us.
Gatehouse of Fleet is an excellent location for visiting the surrounding area of Dumfries and Galloway. There are numerous coastal and woodland walks for those who enjoy exploring the countryside as well as many places of historical interest.
The cottage is within easy walking distance of shops and eating places. Alison and John went out of their way to ensure we had a comfortable stay.
