“So good we'll definately return!”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Highly recommended. This was a fantastic find and perfect location to recharge the batteries. The cottage is immaculate and just great. The enclosed garden was perfect too for our four legged companion! The personal touches by Karen and Elaine made our stay extra special, with a number of unexpected treats. The cottage is great for local walks and also within walking distance of Lenzie train station for easy access to Glasgow. Can't wait to return for a future break.

“As Perfect as it gets ...”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Keeping it simple we stayed for 4 nights in May and whilst there we have booked for 8 nights this September ... Absolutely wonderful. The hosts (Karen & Elaine) were like good neighbours. The attention to detail was unmatched (I'll not spoil it for anyone visiting). The grounds are magical .. how many places do you visit with a Shetland pony in the garden and babbling brook and wee waterfall. Very peaceful but only a nice walk to local service. If the weathers not too kind there's a lovely gas fire in the living room (and central heating everywhere) and SKY tv. GO THERE ... best value we're experienced in years (they should charge more :-). ENJOY / thank you very much.

“Charming cottage in superb location”

I had an enjoyable, comfortable stay in this charming cottage overlooking a superb garden and river. Hosts were welcoming and helpful. Great location for easy access to M80 for Glasgow and Edinburgh.

“Lovely quiet cottage apartment with all the mod-cons and thoughtful luxuries”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Can't recommend this lovely cottage apartment just outside of Glasgow enough. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. The apartment itself is fully stocked with everything you could possible need. They've thoughtfully left out plenty of information on the local area and what to do - both nearby and further afield. The kitchen was stocked with all we needed for the next morning, without having to drive out to the nearest supermarket. Toiletries were kindly provided in the bathroom. The bed was super comfortable with a warm thick duvet to protect against the Scottish winter! Umbrellas are provided (although thankfully weren't needed for our stay) and the owner Karen was extremely friendly and helpful, yet respected out privacy. This is one of the best, if not the best, holiday lets we've stayed in for the little thoughtful touches that so many other owners neglect. Thanks Karen - we'll definitely stay again next time we come to your beautiful part of the world.

Had a most wonderful, homely, relaxing stay at this remarkable accommodation. Looking forward to re-visiting in the very near future. We wanted to book a longer stay upon arrival but the Cottage was already booked unfortunately!

However, the Cottage is spotless, full of lovely personal touches, even for Toby, our baby doggy boy, who made himself feel welcome instantly.

The garden and stream is beautiful and well presented!

We travel far and often and this find is one of the best.

We recommend a peaceful relaxing stay here.

“Perfect hidden gem”

Stayed in this lovely, comfy cottage for 2 nights. We had our pet dog with us.
Its tucked away as though in the country, but only minutes from the motorway and into the city.
Karen, the owner, was welcoming, and friendly and had even stocked the fridge with milk, bread and even wine!!
The cottage has one bedroom, a fully fitted kitchen, warm and comfortable sitting room, and a bathroom, even Sky TV.
The location was perfect for walking our dog, plenty of outdoor space, and long and short walks around.
I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend to anyone. It was very reasonably priced as well.
