Our stay in Stone Cottage was just delightful. It was an excellent base for non car drivers to take in the many delights of Dumfries and Galloway. The cottage is cosy with a lovely garden where you can sit outside and listen to the birds sing. Our hosts were very welcoming and we enjoyed the baked delights we received upon arrival
The cottage has a lovely comfy bed and everything you need. We'll be back!
This was our first stay at Stone Cottage and we were very impressed with the accommodation. On arrival we were met with the smell of fresh ground coffee, homemade bread, scones and apple slices, fresh orange juice, milk and butter. The cottage is to a high standard, lovely and clean, plenty of hot water, fresh towels & bedding with a very comfortable bed. There is a TV with freeview, DVD player, CD/Radio and a decent WiFi signal. The kitchen is well equipped for self-catering.
The cottage is located on a quiet road on the outskirts of town (5 mins to town centre). Ideal for walks and cycling, Kirroughtree mountain bike centre only a couple of miles away (lockable bike shed at the cottage).
Most of the sites of interest in Galloway can easily be reached by car within half an hour which we found to be a great bonus. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this cottage. Thank you Brendan & Rhona for a wonderful holiday.
Looking for a short break we discovered this little gem. We arrived to find coffee brewing with delicious scones and cake and flowers on the table - a lovely welcome. Then we discovered fresh orange juice, butter and milk in the fridge - Rhona surely thinks of everything for her guest's comfort! Everywhere was sparkling clean with comfortable chairs and sofa. The bedroom was very pretty and welcoming and we discovered the bed was very comfortable - a bonus we don't always find! For your entertainment, the cottage had a good selection of books and DVDs, with Sky TV. Although Wifi is available, unfortunately we found that this was very patchy; it wasnt an issue for us, we were glad of the excuse! All in all a delightful little cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Our thanks to Rhona and Brendan.
