My wife and I have just returned from Donella Cottage with our dog Teddy.
We had a lovely relaxing 3 nights in this beautiful cottage.
It has everything you need and more, the decor is excellent and the beds and bedding very comfortable.
The hot tub is a bonus, we used it every day.
There’s some great walks around, we were given a few pointers from the very friendly gentleman who lives there, we ended up doing the ‘8 bridges’ nature trail one he recommended that starts from the village and follows the small river up to a pine forest then meets the road which comes right back to the cottage. It’s quite muddy this time of year but if you have the gear on it’s a fantastic walk for a couple of hours.
Dumfries house is about 20 mins drive and well worth a walk around the gardens.
We also had a drive to Ayr which is about 45-50 mins drive.
Thanks very much Katrina we look forward to returning soon. X
Just back from a wonderful relaxing stay at Donella cottage, would highly recommend! Katrina has thought of everything! Will definitely return in the future!
Cottage was great, had everything you need, hot tub fantastic, not over looked, brilliant for taking your dog, separate part for dog to run freely, local shop and pub just 5 mins away....
We stayed for 3 nights in the cottage and it was lovely and cosy - still can't believe we were less than an hour away from home. There was everything we could have needed and the dog enjoyed his first holiday with lots of country walks and learning to swim! Will hopefully be booking up again soon!
