“Fabulous cottage in a gorgeous location”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a wonderful 5 night stay at Slipway Cottage. The cottage is very well equipped and very light and spacious with lovely views out over the harbour and beach. It was heaven for our two dogs who had a great time playing on the beaches and in the sea and we meandered our way along the coastal path for hours. There's plenty of information on things to do and places to visit but we loved it so much we only left Garlieston once to go to the Isle of Whithorn! Highly recommended!

So good to hear of our visitors enjoying their stay at Slipway Cottage and obviously relaxing in Garlieston sufficiently so as to not want to leave it! Thank you Helen and hope to see you both again one day.

“A wonderful 3 night stay”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Slipway Cottage. We received a warm welcome from Betty and Cliff on arrival and felt immediately at home. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy and was a great base for our long weekend adventures in Dumfries and Galloway. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the cottage is well equipped and we didn't want for anything. A lovely peaceful stay, would be keen to return.

“Slipway Cottage”
Reviewed 9 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage is excellent. Very well appointed with great attention to detail. Very clean and tidy. Located in a very quiet spot in the Village. Ample parking.
Great location for seeing around the area - quiet roads!
And with The Harbour Inn only a few hundred yards away, no need to cook if you don't want to.
Plan to go back!

Not too far over the border to make a four night stay from Yorkshire worth the journey. The cottage was well equipped and very tastefully decorated. Nothing left to chance and a wonderfully comfortable bed. The cottage is located as stated right on the edge of the harbour and if you prefer not to cook, just a short walk from the Harbour Inn which serves lovely food. We were lucky with good weather to explore the remote countryside. Would definitely go back again. John and June North Yorkshire.

“Amazing cottage. Fabulous location.”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just back from a 3 night stay at slipway cottage. What a brilliant time we've had. There were so many thoughtful touches that really did make it a home from home. We didn't want for anything. We received a very warm welcome on our arrival. I couldn't recommend it enough. The location is perfect for exploring this beautiful part of Scotland. The local pub serves great food, and they made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you Betty and Cliff. X
