Great night stay, went down to Galloway dark sky Park for the night and stayed here. House was very clean and well furnished. Will definitely take a longer break and stay here in the future! Really nice place

Booked Willow Cottage because of the amazing reviews it already had. Was not disappointed at all ! Cottage is so clean, with everything you need. Location is perfect , on the doorstep to gorgeous walks. I recommend the outdoor centre, Laggan, especially if you have teenagers as the zip wire was a hit.
Thank you , would visit again .

Thank you for your kind comments and so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I'm not brave enough for the zip wire myself but our teenagers loved it too. Hope to welcome you again, Katrina

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
