A lovely cottage in a lovely location. Warm and cosy with everything you could need. The views were stunning on sunny days. Lots to do in the area for all ages. Cycling and walking straight from the door. The internet and phone were a real bonus. We had a very peaceful week just relaxing.

“Brilliantly situated, comfortable, well-equipped cottage.”

people found this review helpful

We visited Galloway during a dreadful period of weather in early September 2012. We picked Willow Cottage because it seemed to be really close to one of the Forest Park Visitor Centres - and it was: a really good place to base yourself for a walking (or, I guess) cycling holiday. Despite the weather, we did get some good walks in, and the cottage was always a cozy and comfortable place to return to in the wintry evening. It's well maintained, spotlessly clean, and Katrina, the owner, was unfailingly helpful and friendly (even though she wasn't there). Everything you could need is within a quick car drive - supermarket and outdoor gear store in Newton Stewart, and plenty of traditional craft and food places nearby (some great smokeries down the road, plus the Bladnoch Distillery!.). Kircudbright (Ker-koo-bry) is close by - a beautiful spot particularly for art lovers. We had a great stay.

“Probably the best equipped cottage in Galloway”

An extremely well equipped cottage located in a very rural setting with off-road parking. Well maintained throughout and complete with a reliable wifi broadband. Our guests from Canada loved the panoramic views from the lounge and were delighted by the sight of deer wandering the hillside – they used Skype to show their friends at home. A café is located about 200 metres away on the main road that provides excellent home cooked cakes/meals. A small library/games selection is provided for rainy days when you just want to relax.

“Fantastic - a real home from home”
Reviewed 14 November 2012 for a stay in June 2012

What a great find Willow Cottage is! We spent a lovely week there in June 2012.

The cottage is in a fantastic location at the end of a short row of houses - none of the other properties in this road will have the same fabulous views as this one. There is a panaromic vista from the lounge, where we spotted a variety of wildlife. We saw red squirrel, deer and a woodpecker within the first few days.

The cottage itself is lovely and spotlessly clean. There are 2 good size bedrooms and the kitchen is equipped with eveything you require and more. An added bonus is the utility room with washing machine and dryer and space for hanging any wet weather clothing.
The rear garden is neatly maintained and fully enclosed so safe for dogs.

The location is really good for exploring. You can trek into the hills or Kirroughtree Forest from the cottage. It's also a good location for exploring by car as you are only a few hundred yards from the main A75 trunk road. The nearest shops are in Newton Stewart which is less than 5 minutes drive away.

We highly recommend Willow Cottage - it's a real home from home. We'll definitely be returning for another visit soon.
