    "We loved our week at S33829 and are talking about booking to stay there again. There was everything we needed both in the cottage and in the surrounding area. As you'd expect the internet was occasionally a little slow but that didn't bother us. After all, we'd come away to rest and relax. If I were being picky then there were a few small things. Logs for the fire were too big to fit in the burner (the cottage has amazing central heating so we were warm) so an axe or saw might have been useful. We visited in November and we were toasty with the heating on. I really wanted to recycle our waste. I know the owners don't control the local area rules on recycling but it just felt wrong to not recycle. That said, the cottage was lovely. Calming with beautiful views. The nature reserve was fab for walking our dogs. The beaches we visited (we went in November) were empty and the dogs loved them. The Boathouse in Glencaple do amazing food (and takeaway) with a small shop. Caerlaverock Castle is well worth a visit (they have a play area and climbing frame if you have children). For shopping, Dumfries is a short car journey and you'd find everything you wanted there.Safe to say we'll be back again!"

    "We really enjoyed our stay there are only a couple of things that would've made it excellent:a comfier settee in the living room, it had seen better days:more wood for the fire, we had to buy some as there was only enough for one evening:recycling bins, we took our recycling home! The owners were friendly and quick to sort out a wee problem with the hob in the kitchen.The house was warm, relaxing and we enjoyed our stay."

    "Beautiful cottage set in an ideal situation for touring Dumfries and Galloway. Plenty of wildlife in the area and a visit to the Red Kite Feeding Farm is definitely worth a trip."

    "A pretty little cottage situated in lovely countryside that is both peaceful and secluded but still not too far from Dumfries city centre. You can even order takeaway. The cottage has all the essentials and is warm, comfortable and clean. Our dog loved the area and garden but the garden isn't entirely enclosed and there is a road in front of the cottage. This wasn't a problem for us as our dog won't wander out of sight but if you own a dog that likes to explore then I imagine it would be a very different story. There is a castle within walking distance. (approx 1 mile or so away) and we can recommend The farmers inn for a nice pub lunch.We spent most of our time in the Kitchen/diner playing the many boardgames we took with us or in the garden admiring the views. Our first night was amazing as the sky couldn't have been clearer and with no light pollution the perseid meteor shower couldn't have been more spectacular. Overall we had a lovely short break and we all wished we could have stayed longer."

    "We had a fantastic time in S33829. I think this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. The accommodation was exceptional, beds comfortable, and the bathroom was out of this world. The best bit though I think was the kitchen/diner, so light and airy with fantastic views over the surrounding area. The dogs loved the garden, and so did I. A trip to Caerlaverock Castle is well worth it, and the Sandy Hills Bay is lovely for a dog friendly beach."
