“Ideal holiday location; lovely cottage beautifully located”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A 5-minute walk took us to a childrens activity area and a further 5-minut walk took us to a wildlife hide where we watched a red sqirrel and woodpeckers.

“The only sounds you hear are bird songs.”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A clean and comfortable cottage with everything you need for a happy holiday. We had a warm welcome from Vince and Jennie are hosts. We had fresh bake bread,scones and fruit cake all made by Jennie delicious. We did not think you could have so much pleasure just to sit and watch the birds and squirrels that visited the garden. Around the cottage are lots of walks in and around the forest, you can also hire mountain bikes at the forest centre. This was the most relaxing holiday we have had for a long time.our dog Zak had a great time to.

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure having you stay in one of our cottages and thank you for leaving the cottage so clean. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and Zac the dog too. We look forward to seeing you again. The red squirrels are waiting for you.

“A wonderfully relaxing holiday in a most comfortable cottage”

We have recently returned from a wonderfully relaxing and happy week at Drey Cottage. Jennie, the owner, was so kind and welcoming, she had made a delicious fruit cake for our arrival. The cottage itself is very comfortable,immaculately clean and furnished with everything you could need. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens.The seed and nut feeders gave us endless hours of pleasure, seeds and nuts to refill them were thoughtfully provided. The walks from the cottage were everything our dog could wish for. We enjoyed visting the hide, 5 minutes walk away, in Kirroughtree Forest Park where we found the antics of the red squirrels and many birds very entertaining. Apart from the lovely local walks there are many places of interest to visit, we particularly enjoyed Portpatrick, Loch Trool and Cally Gardens and Nursery. We were sad to leave but look forward to making a return visit before too long. We have had several holidays in this part of Scotland in the past and have to say this one was definitely the best.

“Fantastic cottage in a fantastic location”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A very warm welcome from Jennie the owner, who also provided a really good fruit cake. A superb cottage which was spotless and warm with home from home feeling.The birds visiting the garden were amazing, but the bonus was the Red Squirrel. Fantastic. The cottage is really well situated, for the forest which is fantastic for dog walking. Would stay here again,
if visiting the area again.
