Plenty of space
I stayed at 79 Laurel Bank in Gatehouse of Fleet from 21-26 June with my granddaughter and great grandson. The house is spacious and bright with a back garden. However I would like to point out some things which need improvement. 1. There were no more toilet rolls or bin liners. 2. Only one tea towel. 3. The hoover wasn't emptied. 4. My 4 year old nephew was covered in dog hair when he rolled about on the floor, and we found dog hair underneath the couch. 5. The beds were far too soft. I slept downstairs on the couch some nights because I had backache and the couch provided a firmer support. 6. There were no instructions for any appliances, eg. Cooker, heating. 7. A welcome pack would have been appreciated. We did enjoy our stay there because we could visit our sister in the town and go on walks. The house was in a good location and plenty big enough for 4 of us My granddaughter liked it too.

Perfect Getaway
We had a lovely three-night stay in Laurel Bank. We had originally booked for March, but the day we were meant to set off was during the worst of the snow the UK saw this year! We couldn?t make the 6 hour trip from Hertfordshire through red weather warnings, but Sam was very understanding and allowed us to cancel at short notice and rebook at our next convenience with only a small cleaning fee to pay. We were so grateful, it would have been so disappointing otherwise. The cottage is a great size with two bedrooms, induction cooker, power shower, WiFi, Freeview and all the other amenities you could need. Someone mentioned on here that they didn?t like the way the kitchen came off the end of the hallway but we found it nice and open. Everything was clean and the heating and hot water worked fine. We were really content. We walked along the coast at Mossyard, which was 10 mins drive away. We also had two lovely long walks in Galloway Forest Park, the better being from the Newton Stewart entrance. Gatehouse of Fleet itself is quiet and unassuming. We found it to be a great base to see the Scottish coast. Thank you so much Sam, we really enjoyed our stay. Steph & Simon

Family holiday in this lovely village
The cottage was lovely, clean and welcoming. The bathroom was really nice with loads of hot water and the bedrooms were warm and spacious. The downstairs was a little disappointing as the living/dining room was a bit cramped and neither of us could work out how to use the oven and hob properly. It seemed very complicated and we coudnt find an instruction booklet. However we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have booked again for Easter 2017.
