We have just returned from the most fabulous stay for a week at 37. Will definitely be back to stay at such a wonderful gem In the mountains! The space this cottage has to offer is quite astounding. The rooms were double the size I thought they would be, plenty of space for our party of 5 adults. The beds were lovely and comfortable, with everything feeling very warm and cosy. The bathrooms were clean and luxurious, with towels provided. Quite unexpected! The garden/patio area was very private and beautifully cared for. Had the weather been just a tad warmer we might all have sat out there to eat in the evening, but you can't have everything! Maybe next time? We had been left fresh flowers and a bottle of wine on arrival which was a very kind. The owners were kind enough to let us store our bikes locked safely in the garden hut whilst we weren't using them, thank you! Thornhill was convenient and welcoming. The local supermarket was open late and the fish suppers we had, topped our week off nicely. We trekked around the Galloway Forest Park, seeing a beautiful spectical - sunset over Clatteringshaws Loch with The Merrick looming in the distance. My partner and I sampled local mountain biking/walking at the 7stanes bike centres at Ae, Mabie, Kirroughtree and Glentrool. Plenty more biking and walking available to do in the area. We simply scratched the surface and that was pretty exciting! On the couple of wet days we encountered we visited Drumlanrig Castle and paid a small amount to take part in the guided tour of the castle and the grounds. The tour was very interesting and informative, well worth a visit. We also took a trip into Dumfries to have a good look around although, we ran out of time to visit any of the tourist spots, the town itself was useful and bustling, despite the rain!
Loved the house and the area. I can't wait to book our next trip up here. Would definitely recommend staying at 37. Easy to find and convenient for parking - 2 spaces right outside the house off the street. Thanks for letting us stay! :) Lindsay
Love the house...when speaking to the owner I found them really friendly and helpfull...even left us wine and chocolate for wen we arrive...every need catered for...will deffinately be staying here again...
Thank you for renting your home to us. Although we were doing some family business it did allow us for the first time to be able to rent a car and enjoy the country side. Your home was very comfortable and we enjoyed being able to cook a meal and not have to use restaurants every day. All and all a very enjoyable holiday and we look forward to maybe rent your home again. Our only suggestion would be to leave the book on how to use the home internet etc out so renters could find the information easily. Thank you again!!
