Liked everything, it was the best cottage we have ever stayed at.
Mr Mason

The cottage is beautiful, clean and comfortable with everything you could need. It was conveniently situated for all the surrounding attractions, of which there are plenty within a short drive, lots more if you are prepared to go a bit further. We enjoyed the lovely bird-friendly garden, spent hours watching them through the picture window - delightful! The nightly flypast of the crows returning to roost and then the bats coming out to feed was an amazing spectacle! We also loved the red deer, the wild goats and the red kites - well worth a visit if you like wildlife. The local people were very friendly and helpful wherever we went, it was a total delight from start to finish.
Mrs Greenwood

Secluded but near all amenities.
We had a delightful stay at Nether Barr Farmhouse with our collie, Leo. The owner was not in residence in the other part of the property and it felt as if we were in our own private world. The view from the large picture window is stunning: garden, fields, river and hills, not another dwelling in sight. We were lucky enough to have great weather, otherwise view would be more limited. The lounge only accomodates two chairs, no space for a sofa. The view makes up for this though and though compact the loungs/kitchen is pleasant and contains all you need. The bedroom is twin bedded and quite large. I think a king size or linked twin beds, creating a super king, if required, would be an improvement. The bathroom is a good size with bath and efficient and hot over bath shower. Accommodation was heated well. No wifi except in the towns. Garden was ideal for Leo, plenty of space and well enclosed. The one mile walkway/cycle path to Newton Stewart is a great advantage. Safe for dogs (but look out for one place where there is an open gate to the road) and a pretty walk, it will bring you out at Sainsburys and Aldi.

The view from the picture window is breathtaking.
Mrs Ride

Peaceful, beautiful location and of a very high standard. The view from the window was breathtaking.
