Set in an idyllic, unspoilt area of Dumfriesshire in the lowlands of Scotland, Kirkwood has seven charming holiday cottages. At Kirkwood, we offer a peaceful and relaxing experience for those who want it but for those who don't there is plenty to do, both on the property and in the surrounding area. We also have many food dishes made here at Kirkwood using our own produce, which you can order for your arrival.

we arrive at the lodge and all was great, the field surrounding were marvellous and the crispy fresh air energised us. That was until we got to the bedroom and open the shower room. The smell of urine on the carpet floor was quite a contrast with it's surroundings. Who still use

Joao you omitted to mention a couple of points. First that we visited you on two or three occasions during your stay and you never told us that there was any smell of urine. If you had informed us we could have cleaned it or done something. You only told us AFTER you had left and by then yes, our housekeeper confirmed there was a smell but as she swears there was no smell before you arrived she was mystified. We can not clean it or sort a problem, if we are not told. The second thing you omitted was that you asked for a refund at the time you complained about the smell with the implication that you would not make a bad review so long as you received a refund. As we refused to give you money back, we have been expecting a bad review so it is no surprise. Yes our terms (which we explained to you twice when you booked) include the extras such as electricity and gas at exactly what we are charged by electricity company and if requested we do provide and charge extra for towels. This reduces the wastage of cleaning towels that are already clean on a "just in case" basis (for example when only 3 people end up in a cottage for 6, we would still clean all 6 towels). When we met after you had arrived, you asked for towels, so we went away and brought some back to the cottage for you later. On both occasions you told us there was no other problem in the cottage. You then had more opportunities later. Why did you not tell us about other problems at the time?

I made a large group booking, choosing this venue as the farm has a few cottages overlooking a shared courtyard. The accommodation was of a good standard (and great value) and I would happily come back for a break here again. The location was amazing - a picturesque farm with

My wife had to buy a potpourri to disguise the urine smell! :-(.
