Highly recommend this lovely cottage if you want to explore this beautiful part of Scotland you must stay here great views great hosts nice touch arriving to find a welcome pack.
We had a lovely stay at the cottage. We meet the cleaning lady (Marg ? ) she was lovely,she chatted to us about the area and what was what in the cottage, she couldn't of been more helpful.
The beds were comfortable and clean, I always take cleaning stuff with me on holiday and feel that I need to clean the house before the holiday can start but I have to say the cottage didn't need anything doing which was amazing.
The welcome pack was a lovely touch.
The only thing I would say about the cottage, which I don't think the owners can do anything about, is the neighbours could do with sorting out there garden area and they can be very loud at time but please don't let it put you off staying as the cottage is one of the best I have stayed in.
The area around the cottage is very good for food shopping and you can get to most areas you would want to visit. The dark sky's are amazing.
I would like to thank Marg got all her help and for the lovely welcome to the cottage
Great cottage in a great location minutes from Newton Stewart. Brilliant view of the river Cree from the balcony. Everything you need in the cottage great starter pack, lovely welcome.
Thanks again for everything,
Stayed from Christmas Eve until New Year's Day and everything was perfect. Really excellent accommodation, with spacious lounge from which a balcony is accessed. This looks over the river Cree which runs through the town. It was wonderful to spend time sat out there (coats on as winter!) drinking mulled wine watching the river run past. The cottage is located not far from the centre of town making it an ideal place for evenings out and visiting the local attractions which are too numerous to list. The beds are so comfortable and the heating amazing, we were very cosy. The owners went to the trouble of putting up a Christmas tree for us and a large festive hamper was over flowing with goodies when we arrived. Very generous and started our stay off in an excellent way. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are excellent and we cooked as well as going out. I particularly enjoyed the fact that there is an 'essentials cupboard' in the kitchen which we just replaced items from when we used them.
I would highly recommend Barley cottage and would definitely hope to stay there again. Thanking Rod and Susan for their hospitality.
