At One with the Countryside
Left on 09/22/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | John Stokoe
A charming cottage ideal for two sharing. Wildlife abounds in the garden which naturally extends into open countryside. It makes for the most relaxing of times. Cottage amenities were all in order. We never saw anyone supervising the cottage either on our arrival or before we departed but information provided was quite comprehensive. Highly recommended but don't all go as we shall probably want a gap in next year's calendar for our own return!
A wonderful tranquille holiday

A very comfortable and well appointed cottage with stunning views from the picture window.
The off road path into the town centre of Newton Stewart was an added bonus.
We can't wait to return next year.
A fantastic week, weather and location superb.

Lovely enclosed garden - ideal for dogs. The cottage certainly lives up to its 4 star rating (should be 5 star). Very clean and comfortable cottage and the views from the picture window were magnificent with the scenes changing constantly near the riverside. Overall, a very peaceful, cosy and very private setting. We will visit again.
