“Perfection ”
Reviewed 30 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We rented wagtail earlier this year. Two adults and one large dog! Wagtail is wonderful, it's spotless, comfy, fully equipped and a wonderful destination for a a totally relaxing holiday.

Wagtail is very tastefully decorated with a nautical theme throughout, you can tell the owners spent a lot of time and love getting this cottage just right.

We spent evenings sat in the conservatory relaxing with a drink or two watching the stars.

The hot tub was a huge plus point for us and is fab, it overlooks the Solway Firth and is situated in a separate hot tub house which is great when it rains!

Our lab loves the walks onto the beach which was so peaceful and a minute walk from the front door, it meant she didn't need to be on a lead the whole time we were away as traffic is minimal on the road outside.

If it's peace and tranquility your looking for then you could not find a better place than wagtail.

We are already booked for our next visit.

“Stunning! the only place i have found takes more than 3 pets”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2016

I rented this property direct off the owner, we have 4 dogs and found no places to rent that takes this amount, We walked onto the beach in 30 seconds the dogs loved the sea it is very shallow all of the time, once we opened the door of wagtail cottage on arrival, everything was spotless, The hot tub is in a room overlooking the beach, which is totally unspoilt and undeveloped. After having a long soak we sat in the conservatory looking out at the sea watching the world go by,
i love looking at the stars so once the sun went down the stars lit up, no street lights to ruin this experience while my wife read one of the many books left, There is so much or little to do in this area, We never moved out of Wagtail once as the place felt so much like home, We even ordered our shopping to be delivered from tesco dumfries via the free wi-fi.
I tried to book Wagtail cottage this year but found the dates i wanted were already booked, I have now booked later on in the year this is the first place we have booked in scotland, My wife and i loved it the dogs loved it and i know anyone going for a nice relaxing holiday will definitely have that. Trip Advisor has got the address wrong this is overlooking the beach in Southerness not near castle douglas
