“Great Holiday”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Lovely stay at Glentrool cottage, which was well equipped and had everything we needed
It was an ideal place for mountain biking and walks, both at Glentrool and Kirroughtree (about 20 mins drive).
The House O'Hill Pub/Hotel was lovely - the food was fantastic
There is no internet access but that wasn't a problem for us.

We would definitely come again and recommend it to friends.

“Relaxing stay”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a lovely stay at glen trool cottage. It was an ideal place to explore the area as well as provide close access to the forest to walk dog, use cycle trails and run. For us, it was still close enough to Newton Stewart for any essential supplies as well as the beauty of Kirroughtree (about 20 mins drive). The park at the end of road kept our young girls, age 3 and 5, happy too. Would definitely return.

“Great cottage with access to the bike trails.”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were in scotland to go mountain biking with our three young children and we found this cottage. It was perfect for us with everything we needed including toys, games and books for the children, a garden straight into the woods and a cycle path that took us straight to the 7stanes trailhead at Glentrool. The House o Hill pub was lovely too - the food was great.

The cottage is a little dated but was clean and had everything we needed for the week. The front room was a lovely cosy room with a lovely fire and great views out of the windows. There is no internet access but that really didn't bother us; its nice to be without sometimes!

Liked best: Direct access to the woods and bike trails.
Liked least: The midges in the garden - but it is scotland in June and to be expected!
