    A lovely cottage set in great gardens for wildlife and well fenced to keep your dogs safe. Two minutes walk from the beach at Sandyhills. Very clean and welcoming on arrival. Ten minutes drive to pubs at Kippford and Carsethorne providing good food and atmosphere. A perfect centre for the Dumfries and Galloway coast and forest.

    Had a great, relaxing break at the Coachman's cottage. The wildlife that visits the garden is amazing. We saw red squirrels, a badger and numerous birds, including a Jay and a Woodpecker. Perfect for getting away from it all.

    Well, what can I say, this delightful cottage has it all. Fantastic location, lovely garden with lots of wildlife visiting, easy walk to beach, local shop for papers. Clean and comfortable, very well equipped with all the things you need and have probably got at home; sadly no washer which would have been handy but hey, you cant expect everything. Would definitely recommend and will most likely return.

    Easter Break: 13th-20th April 2019. 4 adults and 2 dogs - Fantastic property exactly as stated on websites and shown on all photos. Really important for us that the garden was completely secure and enclosed as our 2 rescue greyhounds are very lively and inquisitive! Garden is completely walled on 3 sides with remaining side adjoining neighbours panel-fenced over 6ft. There is a good split between gravel and grassed-section with plenty of available lawn. Facilities again as stated but here's a few additions; large double fridge and separate double freezer. Kitchen table sits 6 in comfort. Good range of kitchenware (pot/pans/roasting dishes/slow cooker/plates/cups/glasses) great AEG oven (loads of space) and new dishwasher. Wi-Fi is BT Hub; very quick and stable. Heating and hot water spot-on and instant! Good firm mattresses in each room on both double and single beds. Stairs are fairly steep but gated at top and bottom for kids and dog consideration. Wildlife is off the charts; birdwatchers paradise with multiple feeders right outside kitchen window on tree attracting almost every small bird you can think of. Of course the resident red squirrel is a regular, daily visitor. Great beach at Sandyhills is a 100m walk from the cottage and with the local tidal flow there are miles of beach available at nearly all times of the day. Nearest decent shop is a local Londis at Colvend literally 2mins in car. Great forest walk also ends/starts from Colvend car park and takes you deep into the forest on wide well-managed paths. Bottom line - would I come back again = YES. Would I recommend this cottage = YES

    The cottage was lovely & well equipped, the setting was idyllic & peaceful with a well established mature garden. There was ample space for parking, sitting enjoying the sunshine and a good grassy area for the dogs to chase the ball.

    Lovely cottage with large enclosed courtyard/Garden. Ideal for families and pets. Great location for walking. Near to the beach and a deer park just up the road. All kinds of birds visit the garden also red squirrels. Had a brilliant week. Will definitely be booking a return visit. Nearest shop was a short drive away but there is a shop attached to the caravan park which will open at the start of the holiday season.

    Fantastic cottage in a very peaceful remote location. Beautifully furnished and very cozy. We could happily have stayed forever. Nothing really around it unless you jump in the car, but that is exactly what we like. Would love to stay again.

    Coachmans Cottage was a lovely property in a great location with fantastic wildlife and walks right on the doorstep. The only thing that would have made it perfect for us personally would have been having a washer/ dryer rather than a dishwasher, firmer mattress on the bed and a colander would have been useful in the kitchen for draining pasta/ veg. The gift of wine was a very nice touch and we had a very nice stay and we would definitely return to Coachmans Cottage again. We would highly recommend this property!

    After an incident at our original cottage, which Scottish Cottages sorted out straight away, Lee very kindly took us on as a last minute booking, he was lovely and welcoming, and the cottage was stunning. Coachmans is located in an ideal position for exploring the area, and the variety of birds in the garden was amazing, plus the red squirrels too! We would love to return as it felt like home as we walked through the door.

    Lovely, quiet location. A 5 minute walk to the beach. Numerous species of birds right outside the kitchen window and a red squirrel! Comfortable bed, secure garden, very clean.... We loved every minute of our holiday in this beautiful area and comfortable cottage. Would definitely book again. Local shop 5 minutes drive, co-op in Dalbeattie about 15 minutes.
