We had a fabulous stay at Garden Cottage, arrived on the Sunday afternoon, and after settling in, the owners came to introduce themselves and make us feel very welcome, the cottage is lovely and warm, very well presented and lots of space. It is a very dog friendly cottage, and the owners are clearly pet lovers themselves, with little extras touches including dog treats for our two springers, as well as for us. The open plan design living space worked well for us, with a very comfy bed with ensuite bathroom downstairs, as there were just the two of us we didn't use upstairs, but they equally looked as comfy and well presented with a shared shower room too. Outside a large enclosed garden is to the front, with a small woodland area that our dogs loved to explore and sniff around in, just beyond is an enclosed grassed paddock for our own use, again very handy to play in. The town of Tain is about a mile away, and has three supermarkets, Lidl, Asda and Tescos, all very good sized stores and well stocked, if you want a very good bakery, we recommend Harry Gows, freshly made sandwiches, pies and cakes, fresh coffee to eat in or take away, very reasonably priced and catered for a day trips on a daily basis!
