Pet friendly accommodation Pet Friendly


This is the most beautiful, comfortable cosy cottage I have stayed at. The pictures online do not give it justice. The cottage is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. You can see the river by sitting on the single chair by the window. You can see the trees and fields on the other side of the river by sitting on the big sofa. The best view of the river is if you sit on the window sills. There is a laundry room which is lovely and warm, brilliant to dry clothes after a muddy rainy walk.Stayed here during Storm Ciara. The river was almost bursting its banks and the sound was lovely to sit and listen to. There is no wifi but I was able to switch the hotspot on my phone on and connect it to the smart tv so we were able to watch Netflix and catchup without any buffering. I am on Vodafone. Few things I would change if I could - - Add an outside light by the river and a table. - Close the entrance area from the car park area to the bedroom and have it closer to the wheel so the french doors can be left open on a nice day giving some privacy from the road directly to the bedroom. - Put some comfy cushions on the windowsills so sitting there is more comfortable. - Shut off the garden by the river with a little fence so its secure for the dog. My favourite days were a drive along dalveen pass and mennock pass. It took almost a full day but so beautiful, worth every second. And secondly, a walk along balcery bay, on the cliffs. Beautiful views across the solway to england and isle of man. A little mention about the bed, which by the way is lovely to sleep on, the sheets are really good quality and having an electric bed is fun!! Lovely to be able to raise the bed up and sit up with a cup of tea. The only thing is though, because it's two single beds attached together it's not the most comfortable for any romance, if that makes sense lol I rarely give full marks for a cottage but I cant not for this one, I could stay there forever.

Just what you need
This fabulous cottage contains everything you will need for a short stay. The view from the lounge windows of the River Urr is beautiful. Birds swoop the river and fly around. The cottage is warm and comfortable and not far from Dumfries and Castle Douglas. Three levels, but not difficult steps, it is furnished thoughtfully. I would come and stay again if ever in Scotland. Just perfect. Thanks for letting us share your home.
