“A cosy and relaxing cottage in a lovely location”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Glenfinart Cottage is a great base for exploring Dumfries & Galloway. The cottage is very well equipped, cosy and comfortable. The garden is lovely, particularly when the sun shines, and birds at the feeders entertaining even when it rains (it did, most of the week!). A good supply of games and books for those rainy days. Wifi is very good too.

Booking the cottage through Trip Advisor and corresponding with Brian, our host, was very easy and Brian helpful.

Set in a small village with pretty countryside a stone's throw away, but short drives to nearby towns. There's a large Tesco 4 miles away at Castle Douglas and smaller stores in the town, as at Dalbeattie. The Laurie Arms Hotel around the corner is a welcoming pub serving good food and drink - very popular with locals for both, always a good sign.

“Perfect holiday at Glenfinart Cottage”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We enjoyed our holiday so much at the lovely Glenfinart Cottage. The cottage was everything we had hoped for, and so nicely situated. There is a lovely large secluded garden which is perfect to enjoy in the nice weather. My father likes to fish in the River Urr and being able to pop along to the Laurie Arms for a pint really made his holiday.

Liked best: The property was even better than advertised and the garden very large and peaceful, and the night sky is magical
Liked least: Having to decide whether to sit in the garden on a nice day, chill out and read . . . or go out and explore the area!
