    Great cottage and ideally placed for a few things. Most visitor type attractions are farther afield however. The cottage would have scored higher had the bathrooms had somewhere to put toiletries or clothing. There are no shelves or hooks. Other than that, it was very comfortable and exceptionally clean.

    Overall very good. Just a few little touches would make this a perfect stay. We thought a pint of milk in the fridge, some matches and firefighters for the log burner and perhaps a front door curtain (as those in the ground floor bedroom pass the front door at night to access the bathroom) would be helpful. The heating was off when we arrived and it was incredibly cold but soon warmed up. The cottage itself is lovely and the setting is perfect. It is a trek to go to the shops but it’s welk worth it for the location. Very relaxing and peaceful.

    The cottage was warm and well equipped and we loved watching the birds visiting the bird table. Very handy for the Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve and WWT Reserve. Great for bird watchers.

    Overall a great place. The facilities are more than adequate,clean, comfortable and staying there was very relaxing. We plan another visit February 2019.( I will bring a selection of seals and fix the dripping shower head in the downstairs bathroom - if it still leaks. Myself and my Colleague have stayed in this area for years ( Birding and Photography ) at WWT, the most recent (2) visits have been at Hollins and Keepers Cottages. It would be good if a recycling bin for Tins,Plastic paper etc was available - perhaps it is cost prohibitive for the Council to collect, given the area and population !!

    Lovely cottage, from the outside you think its going to be small but how wrong you are when you step in. This cottage is lovely and well thought out. it's located down a farm lane and has amazing views. Close to the Wildlife & Wetlands Trust and to the Nature Reserve walk. The cottage could do with being painted inside as general wear & tear have taken their toll and travellers should be aware that although there are plates, crockery etc you need to take everything else for cooking i.e. tinfoil, clingfilm,rubbish sacks & need to take cleaning stuff as none are left for you to clean the cottage on you departure. We also had to buy lightbulbs for the livingroom lamps as none worked and no spares were left. The cottage was clean on our arrival but unfortunately the fire had not been cleaned out and the log basket only contained 4 logs which we assumed were left over from the previous tenant. That being said, we still enjoyed our visit and would go back.

    This cottage is ideally situated on NNR Caerlaverock, it is a short drive from the lovely towns of Dumfries, Gretna and Castle Douglas. It is a modern conversion with electric heating and a wood burning stove in the living room. The bedrooms are a great size, the kitchen has everything you need and the wi-fi worked well. We would recomend it to anyone who wants to relax in a peaceful location.
