A Home Away from Home!

One of the most relaxing, well equipped self catering cottages we've stayed in and one of the few places all around the world that we keep coming back to.

It's clean, warm, spacious, with all the modern appliances we need. It's in a great location - quiet & relaxing. Lots to see & do locally but also ideally located to explore more of what Scotland has to offer.

Nothing is too much for the owners & there is always a warm welcome of treats on the first day to help you relax & unwind.

There's a good view from the sitting room which allows many opportunities to spot the local deer on the hills ..... And if you're lucky enough a few often wander down to the river just outside. The garden attracts lots of garden birds and birds of prey are often flying above the fields.

If you enjoy peace & quiet, nice views, walking, exploring, nature or just fancy a chill out with the comforts of home then I recommend you give Willow Cottage a try.

Happy Holidays!

We love welcoming guests to Willow Cottage and try to provide everything we would be looking for ourselves in our home. So glad to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the views. Happy also to hear that the Easter Bunny hunt went well with Hannah finding all of the chocolates hidden around the house. Thanks for your kind comments.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback . The local flooding was an unwanted surprise but I'm glad that you remained safe and sound (and dry) in Willow Cottage. Good also to hear that you enjoyed the walks in the forest. We love walking in there too. Thanks, Katrina

“Cosy cottage set in an Idyllic location..”
Reviewed 17 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Really enjoyed our visit to Willow Cottage, the cottage was comfortable and Katrina, our host was thoughtful and accommodating. On arrival, the table was set with shortbreads and biscuits as well as wine, which we thought was a nice touch and above and beyond expectations. The whole cottage was well thought out and immaculate, the garden looked out over fields and hills which was lovely.

Set at the edge of Galloway Forest, this is certainly the perfect spot for surveying the Dark Skies, furthermore, it makes for an excellent hiking spot, with Merrick, Bruce's Stone and Lock Trool all within easy commutable distance.

The surrounding countryside was breathtaking and will are hopeful to return here for our next holiday in Dumfries and Galloway in the summer of 2016.

We have no doubt we will be coming back year after year.
