“Very relaxing”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The cottage was lovely. Perfect location, very clean, modern with everything you could ever need. Couldn't fault the place. We booked for a few relaxing days away and that's definitely what we got. Lovely walks and scenery. We are already thinking about booking our return trip :) Thanks again!

“Lovely cottage, lovely views, lovely holiday.”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our first impression when we arrived at the cottage, was.that everything was very clean and very comfortable. The views from the cottage were stunning. There was everything we would need and more, the bedrooms were very nice and the en-suite was ideal. The kitchen was very well presented, with excellent appliances, and the main bathroom was very nice too.
The walks nearby were challenging and the views were spectacular from the tops of the hills.
There is a good pub in the village with good food.We had a lovely holiday in a lovely cottage in a lovely place, and our little dog loved it. We look forward to coming back again.

“Excellent retreat ”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Booked this cottage looking for a quiet location where my dogs could run freely and I could just chill, all of this was possible. Fantastic views, amazing walks, lovely cottage with all the amenities you could need, completely chilled out few days with no phone calls and no internet to disrupt your days, absolutely loved it

“A complete get-away from it all in a quiet corner of Scotland...”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We booked this cottage as a last-minute, spur of the moment thing, just to have a few days away, regardless of the appalling weather this summer.

The cottage is set on the hill overlooking the village (the highest in Scotland) and was beautifully appointed - lovely kitchen/dining room/living room area, two good-size bedrooms, an en-suite (a must with two teenage boys), and a large family bathroom.

The best bit? No internet...and, to be honest, no mobile telephone signal (unless you take a walk outside, and move around a bit, or go down to the pub...)

The great thing about this, was that it meant we did family stuff together - a trip down the lead mines in the village (really well worth it, an eye-opener in fact); walks up in the hills with the dog - this is a dog-friendly cottage; watching dvd's (when was the last time that happened - as opposed to being on your iPad with headphones on?); and of course, playing board games together in the evening - and cheating outrageously. This really was a relaxing, away from it all hidey-hole...

The village is close enough to Thornhill for provisions, and Dumfries for the obligatory holiday treats, so its easy enough to get out and down the mountain when you've had enough of the views and the solitude.

We will definitely be back...
