“Perfect Cottage.”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a gem of a find! Cottage very comfortable & clean best nights sleep we have had away from home. Very well equipped with cutlery and crockery. Malcom & Loraine give a nice warm welcome on arrival and also make sure you are happy with the cottage although they are not in your face The wife & I would recommend this cottage not only to friends but to anyone who likes the countryside & not remote. If we go back to this area we will definitely stay here again. We have stayed in a few cottages but this is the best one we have stayed in by far.

“Lovely relaxing cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Beautiful cottage - very well equipped and very comfortable. There were fresh flowers and delicious fresh milk and eggs on our arrival. The cottage was clean, bright and airy, and the kitchen very well equipped. The beds were comfortable, and the shower the best we have ever experienced in a self-catering cottage!
The area is excellent for exploring Dumfries & Galloway - we explored local roads by bicycle, and drove further afield to Culzean Castle for the day. We will definitely return to this lovely property in future.
Highly recommended.

“Beautiful cottage for a family break”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Beautiful cottage in lovely setting which had everything we could need for a family break with 2 young girls. We all had a great time and found the cottage to be a good base for heading into Ayr and Dumfries while Kirkconnel and Sanquhar themselves also seemed nice and had everything we needed.

The cottage itself is located on farmland next-door to the owners' own house and there are horses for the kids to see and hens roaming free and laying eggs for guests!

Thanks to Malcolm and Lorraine.

“What a find highly recommend ”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

There is no rating high enough for this place. We stayed over for a weekend for my wife's birthday. The owners Malcolm and Lorraine were really accommodating they arranged for a bouquet of flowers for my wife to be there for our arrival. The cottage is very spacious and clean. The furniture is so comfortable after a long day it's hard to get up. You can tell Malcolm and Lorraine take good pride in what they do to make sure you have the best stay possible and we will definitely be visiting again soon. The only down side for me is I now have to build a chicken coup because my wife loved the friendly chickens and wants some of our own.
