“Beautiful Stay”
Reviewed 26 January 2018 for a stay in November 2017

We had a wonderful stay in the Retreat Cottage on a cold November weekend. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay. Beautiful decoration and some lovely homely touches. We particularly enjoyed the coffee machine and the hot tub. Star gazing from the hot tub was amazing just watch the duck board it can get slippy.

“Amazing place! Can't wait to go back for our 3rd visit!”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have stayed at the Retreat twice and had such a lovely stay on both occasions! Lisa the host is lovely, we had such a warm welcome. We arrived to a fire, homemade flapjacks, a pot of tea and lots of other treats! It's definitely 5 star accommodation, pure luxury.
The setting is perfect, it's so peaceful! Lots of lovely walks on your doorstep.
We will definitely be back asap!

A total "retreat" as described. A rural setting, with peace and quiet, watched the stars on Christmas eve with a glass of champers and the twinkling fairy lights that adorned the cottage.

Christmas day, tried repeatedly to rise from bed, but the luxury white Egyptian bedlinen kept pulling us back to a cosy slumber. Everything I wished for a roaring fire, open plan living allowed laughter and chat while preparing dinner. The kitchen had all the utensils to enable a festive meal to be prepared.
Plenty of recommended dining experiences in nearby villages of which were spot on.
Everything about the cottage was first class. "The Retreat" is just a delightful, magical,cosy,chilled out place to be. "Go for it"

“A peaceful haven”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We absolutely loved this place! Super hosts, well stocked, clean, beautifully located and so very quiet. Lovely big enclosed garden meant the kids could run around safely, lots of amenities nearby, great walks on the doorstep and we even had deer and hares pop by for a visit. We'll be back, hopefully soon and I think we'll book the cottage with the hot-tub next. Highly recommended.

“A fabulous place to stay in a fabulous luxurious cottage.”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We booked this place from Australia online and were not disappointed. We were met at the property on arrival and were shown through the cottage and given a run through on how things worked. Eggs, bread, butter, jam, milk, tea, coffee and other cooking essentials were all provided along with delicious chocolates. The kitchen was fabulous and had everything you needed. The location was perfect with beautiful views and only just over an hour's drive from Edinburgh and Glasgow. Being from Australia we wanted to see as much of Scotland as we could in the week we were there but we could have easily spent the whole time relaxing around the property. A fantastic farm shop and cafe was just down the road. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will certainly recommend this vacation rental to our friends.
