An ideal place to chill out for a week and relax in this spacious and very well fitted out house, I met up with family along with our dogs, and despite the poor weather it provided everything we needed for a chilled out week with the lovely secure garden and exercise area for the dogs, plus many lovely walks nearby too. The town had everything you needed with takeaways, pubs, cafes, a great small supermarket, you really didn't need to venture far if you didn't want to. Spotlessly clean, comfy beds and plenty room for the 3 of us and our 3 dogs, a super stay, ,many thanks.
We had a wonderful time at Sanquhar in Viewforth cottage. This is the best garden for a holiday cottage, for the dogs that we have rented. So large and secure, we didn't even use the extra field.
The cottage is very cozy and has everything you may need. A home from home.
We loved relaxing in the garden. The town which you can walk in 4 mins is lovely it has bakers, butchers, gift shop, chemist, newsagents etc. We used the take-aways which are great, very reasonably priced and tasty.
East & West (indian & chippy food) highly recommended made fresh for you. We also took the dogs to the Multiverse land art which is very near. We would return in the future and recommend to families for a good base to tour Scotland or just to chill esp. recommended for families with pets (allow multiple pets) we took our 4 and they had the best time. Thanks Caroline for a warm welcome
What a little gem Viewforth is! A lovely warm welcome from Caroline made us feel at ease right away and it took no time at all to feel comfortably at home. The house is cosy and comfy with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Very nicely furnished, light and bright and surprisingly roomy inside, a perfect base for visiting the area. The weather turned chilly for us but we were snug and warm indoors and I wouldn't hesitate to stay for a winter break if time permitted.
Very comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer and good quality cutlery, crockery and utensils all make catering for yourself a breeze! There is also a lovely bathroom with big walk in shower which I loved! A roomy garage and plenty of parking space plus a pretty garden with a fenced in field area for the children or pets to play outside in safety make this a family friendly property too.
I will not hesitate to recommend Viewforth to my friends and we will definitely visit again.
Thank you Caroline. it will be next year, but we look forward to seeing you again without a doubt.

Viewforth is a cosy, well-equipped cottage.It has a lovely garden as well as an enclosed green and a field - perfect for tiring out children as well as the dog !
The local pond/lake was also great for entertaining them.
Sanquhar is a great base for exploring Dumfries with walks right on your doorstep. We had a lovely morning at the Crawick Multiverse and a good wander around Drumlanrig estate The local Indian take-away was really good too. Caroline is a lovely host and thoroughly recommend her house.
Just stayed here for 3 nights, a last minute booking.
Would just like to say what a fantastic place, can't fault a thing, home from home. Will be back, thank you Caroline
Just returned from a last minute short break. Top marks to the cottage...had everything you could possibly need as well as a good internet connection and even a Wii. Dog (and children) had lots of enclosed space to run around in.If you have younger children I recommend a visit to both the cocoa bean factory and cream o'galloway. Will definitely return to this cottage.
