The rest of the 7Stanes routes are within easy reach as well as the Galloway Forest Park which is the first designated Dark Sky Park in the UK.\nWildlife is in abundance with the RSPB Mersehead nature reserve just along the coast famous for its rare natterjack toads and barnacle geese. In the woods and fields around the cottage you may see red squirrels roe deer and red kite. Less than 4 miles away is the championship links golf course at Southerness.

    We had such a wonderful time. There a couple of lovely walks in the village, some amazing costal walks and 1hr drive to the forest and mountain to see beautiful waterfalls. We visited the second week of August and there were barely anyone around. If you enjoy a peaceful, quiet and active holiday... this is the place to be.

    Excellent cottage in a superb location. We had a fabulous holiday.



    out of 10

    Having stayed on the Solway coast before we knew what the area had to offer, we expected a pleasant stay without any problems what-so-ever. Cottage is nice but nothing special, didn’t feel homely as nothing was comfortable (beds/sofas). Felt tired and a few places needed TLC, both kettles provided were full of limescale and not useable, also a number of plug sockets were broken and hoover plug was broken. For guests that are not dog owners I wouldn’t recommend as dog hair is visible throughout the property - even found it all over the duvet in the master bedroom as if a big black dog had been sleeping on the bed! Although the property did not meet our expectations it won’t be our last visit to the slowly coast.

    Lovely cottage, very clean and convenient for touring the area



    out of 10

    Well refurbished & well equipped cottage. Contains everything you will need. Only issue is that it is next to a main road, so road noise could be a problem. Generally this was OK but on one night the local farmer was working a close by field and tractors were continually passing the cottage both directions until the early hours of the morning.

    Although the cottage was well equipped and well laid out, our stay there was disturbed throughout by the road noise. It wasn't stated in the write up that it was next to a busy main road. We went at the beginning of June, so goodness knows what it would be like in high season. This spoilt our holiday there as even at the back in the seating area it was a constant concern. If I had known this I wouldn't have booked at this cottage.

    Had a relaxing stay in cottage. Very clean, modern. Lovely hamper for us and the dogs! Went for lots of walks in nearby forests, would love to return



    out of 10

    Cottage is overall very nice and - being dog friendly - you'd expect it to be a little less than immaculate, but the kettle was riddled with limescale, the bath taps were badly marked and tarnished, the plug in the bath didn't work (so couldn't actually have a bath) and there were cobwebs everywhere. A travel cot was requested during booking (and shown on the booking confirmation), but this wasn't at the property so we had to call the owners and request it.

    We had a brilliant time at this gorgeous cottage. The garden although lovely was not secure enough to let our dog out as she could jump the fence. The kitchen was lovely and clean as were all aspects of the cottage. We would definitely recommend this cottage to others.

    Extremely comfortable, well equipped, a lovely holiday.

    Lovely warm, well-equipped cottage. Great value especially as dogs went free. Very useful utility room too. There were some lovely goodies left for us but we could really have used a pint of milk instead especially as the nearest shop open was in Dalbeattie some miles away. Not sure how 6 people would manage with the amount of seating in the lounge but it was fine for the two of us. Cottage doesn't have the benefit of a view and is on the main road so I wonder if we would have felt hemmed in if the weather had been very wet. We did have a lovely week though. Thank you.

    We were enchanted by this little cottage. The open plan living room/ kitchen was flexible for family time and gave the space a very modern feel. The bedrooms were through a door and set to the back, so it was quiet. Only downside was being right next to the road, but once the 'rush hour' had finished, the road noise was minimal, especially at night. Only a mile from the beach and the local pub, a good walk down a road, so watch out for those bends. We mostly drove for safety. There was a lovely welcome pack of local goodies ( and one for the dogs!) and the cottage was spotless with every amenity for daily living that we needed. We took our Amazon box for films in the evening, the WiFi was fine. Lots to see and do along that coast, I highly recommend the Mersehead RSPB nature reserve for good walks and a stunning coastline. I would go back to the cottage and recommend it to anyone. Lovely home away from home.

    The property was first class the only thing against it was nowhere to put anything in the shower room or bathroom
