“Fabulous”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I really loved staying here. It was comfortable and practical. Everything worked. The showers were really good. It was private even though it was in the grounds of a house. The sitting out decking faced towards the lawn area. Private drive with plenty of space to park and turn (and I have a Yeti) . Lots to see in the area too. Greek restaurant on Castle Douglas did a lovely takeaway and knocked money off for me as I was on my own!

This place a real gem.

Thank you for your kind comments. We take our guests privacy very seriously and try at all times to be as unobtrusive as possible while being available when needed. Thanks also for the wildlife photos, they are exceptional. Would be delighted to see you again anytime.

“Fabulous Dumfries and Galloway gem”
Reviewed 24 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The carriage was really lovely. Even better than the photos on the website. It was so comfortable, cosy, well equuipped and it's in a very peaceeful location and great base for exploring the area. Eric and Maggie were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. A great family and dog friendly holiday home. Lots of outdoor space too.
We will definitely be back.

Lovely owners, the place is clean and has a great view. A brilliant spot for sitting fire and watching the stars.

“We had a proper chill out...!”
Reviewed 1 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We arrived with the forecast of below zero degrees, the worry was would we be warm enough....no need to worry the carriage warm and cosy and suprisingly spacious with a great layout and plenty of room. The surrounding countryside was full of wildlife, the location of the carriage was nice and quiet...and we found the before during and after photos showing the carriage being located and made into the holiday home it is now.
All in all a great place for a break.

“A very interesting and exciting holiday home!”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We brought our extended family - 6 in total, including a 4 year-old - and had a wonderful stay. The carriage is a very interesting holiday home and it's also incredibly roomy, warm, comfortable and very well stocked with everything you need. It sits in beautiful surroundings and we enjoyed lots of long walks. Highly recommended.
