    Beautifull away from it all isolated cottage, though does have a regular used country lane goes pass the entrance gate and a few distant properties are in view. The only close neighbours are the cattle and rabbits in the adjoining fields. and the red kites overhead. Spotlessly clean and well equipped though I suspect the oil fired boiler in the outhouse might need a little attention, there is a strong smell of oil at times. A couple of cushions for the exterior wooden seating would certainly be appreciated by us old timers then we could appreciate the fantastic view for much longer. Would we go again? most certainly!!!!!

    We had a lovely, warm and comfortable week at Muirhead. The location and views were fabulous, and our dogs very much enjoyed exploring the garden - we were reassured by the secure fence. Lots of lovely walks and runs on the doorstep and the roaring logburner was a treat to come home to each evening. The kitchen was well equipped and there were lots of home comforts and thoughtful touches available.

    The location is amazing if you like to be able to get away from it all without feeling isolated. Surrounded by wonderful countryside and hills, lots of local walking but 15-20 minute walk/couple minutes drive to the village. Very clean, lots of kitchen equipment if needed. Great wood burner that certainly chucks out the heat. Beds ok, but in my opinion the double bed was hampered by the waterproof cover which made it a bit sweaty to sleep on and the single mattress was a bit hard, and could benefit from a soft topper. But appreciate it depends on your preference. OS maps of area provided (brilliant!) though could do with an update.

    Our second stay at the cottage, as lovely as the first time. Nicely situated in the country, but also close to the main village of Thornhill, which in turn has a number of pubs and eating places. We found the cottage to be Great value for the money, with logs for the woodburner included in the rental price. We will be looking to book again next year

    We love this cottage, great that this year the gate has been fixed and the washing machine and oven replaced with a new ones. Still also think that new non-stick frying pans may be due, the current one don't sit flat on the halogen hob and there for slide around when you are cooking. The mattress has also been replaced but unforuntely for us was too hard as it seems to have been repleased with a FIRM rated mattress perhaps a medium/firm may have been more suitable to suit most guests and therefore provide a better nights sleep. The new Garden Seat is beautiful and a great addition to the outside space capturing the sun.
