    Lovely little old fashioned cottage with plenty of walks nearby. Very clean and the house has plenty of character. You have to drive a bit for local shops but we has a great holiday.

    Total peace and quiet, lovely surroundings, the owner was lovely and helpful, enjoyed our weeks stay, walking through the woods with Sophie our chocolate Lab, and you can walk to Garlieston, which has a beach, and then when you need a refreshing drink you can try The Harbour Inn, My husband enjoyed trying the Real Ale (The Harbour Inn), and the Fish and Chips, I had the Steak Pie, very nice.

    Second time there. Great location, right next to a beautiful woodland and then beaches. Massive sandy beach (Rigg bay) only about a mile or two away - always fairly empty in May/June. Lovely walks around Kilsture wood/forest. Wildlife is abundant - we saw seals, deer, badgers, owls, bats, along with the usual rockpool critters.

    We had a wonderful week in Olaf's cottage. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. They even provided wall to wall sunshine! The cottage is at the end of a farm road, well away from traffic. The garden opens out onto woodland which was perfect as we had brought our two dogs with us. On our visit the woods were carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic. There are ample sites of interest in this area and plenty of walking and cycling opportunities for the more energetic. Shopping in Garlieston is quite limited but Aldi and Sainsburys are available in Newton Stewart.

    This was our third visit to Olaf's Cottage and it felt like coming home. If you like to get away from the madding crowds, take long walks through the woods to secluded beaches.Then come home to a roaring fire, then this is the place for you. Expect a warm welcome. You do need a car to get out and about, the nearest shop, apart from the local garage (diesel only) is the Coop in Wigtown. For a larger store visit Sainsburys and Aldi in Newton Stewart.

    Bit dated but this is reflected within the price. Lovely location beside small woodland, perfect for kids to play and lose themselves.

    This was our first visit to Olafs cottage, although we had been to the this area many times. The cottage and location is perfect for a peaceful relaxing holiday. The only sounds you hear are the sounds of the breeze and the birds ( and an occasional tractor). Our 2 dogs had the time of their lives due to the proximity of the woodland, coastal path and the sea - all readily available from the cottage garden, without the need to cross roads or climb over stiles. Very friendly and helpful owner, who left us all to get on with it, after the initial introductions and instructions. We will definitely be going back!
