    Our second stay at The Cottage as we loved it so much last year. Total relaxation, a stone's throw from a sandy beach and coast walks plus a great local (dog friendly) pub. If that is all you want, Garlieston is the village for you. The cottage has a homely feel, yet is spotlessly clean and well equipped with good wifi. The village even had a visit from Charles and Camilla during the week. We look forward to returning once again.

    The Cottage at Garlieston was beautifully presented, and thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing holiday, even providing towels, food bowls and toys for the dog. The location was perfect for beautiful coastal walks from the door, and for exploring the local area. We would highly recommend it.

    Fantastic cottage - very comfortable and great location only a few yards from the sea. Great base to explore the peninsula and to go on walks.

    It was a wonderful, comfortable place to stay and all our needs were anticipated. We really enjoyed this area of Scotland. Loads of interesting sites from prehistoric to present day as well as beautiful scenery where ever we went.

    This is a super house. It's amazingly spacious, comfortable, well equipped and only a stones throw from a lovely beach. The only very minor drawback we found was that the downstairs bathroom is extremely small. The shop at Garlieston is very rudimentary, but there is an excellent Co-op and butchers shop at Wigtown, a short drive away. We had a very nice holiday here and would be more than happy to return.

    Lovely, well equipped cottage enjoyed sun lounge, and proximity to the large expanse of beach and shore. Great walks from the door and the local pub for good food. Helpful caretaker when we had an issue with smoke alarm battery came to our rescue very swiftly. Would recommed and definitely like to return. Thanks!

    Beautiful cottage, very well renovated maintaining many period features. Very comfortable and well equipped. Enjoyed the garden and conservatory during the day and the wood burners in the lounge and dinning room in the evening. Garlieston and the surrounding area were lovely with some stunning coastal walks.

    This property is deceptively large and homely - the photos don't do it justice - we were very surprised as it is more beautiful than it looks and a little grand! It was spotlessly clean. We were a party of 2 couples and a dog so had plenty of room but it would equally suit a family with young or teenage children. It is well equipt with everything you need - loved sitting in the dining room after our meal playing games out of the dresser! As a holiday let we have just 2 very minor criticisms - loved having a dining table in the kitchen as well as a separate dining room but it does make the kitchen a little cramp and in the downstairs bedroom the plug sockets are behind the bed so not easily accessible - neither of these comments would stop us going back and we would highly recommend it.
