This is a cosy, spacious holiday cottage, with everything you need for a quiet, relaxing break. We had a week over Christmas and comfortably cooked and ate a family Christmas dinner around the large dining table. The owner of the cottage even provided a Christmas tree with decorations, most welcome! The wood burning stove was so efficient, we only lit it once! The cottage is very well equipped for families, lots of DVD's, books, games - even a travel cot and slow cooker for those long days out. We intend to return this summer.
The cottage is in a very quiet location in a quiet part of Dumfries and Galloway, but for us this was what attracted us. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We are a family of five and there was plenty of room for us all. The location is great for exploring Dumfries and Galloway. The Machars area where the cottage is situated is a gently undulating rural area and is great for walking, cycling and quiet beaches. Local facilities are adequate and you can buy everything you need in the local towns and villages if you know where to look, but if you love large out of town supermarkets (we don't) this is probably not the place for you. The nearest larger stores are about 20 miles away in Newton Stewart. We took our bikes and did quite a bit of mountain biking in Galloway Forest on the purpose build Seven Stanes cycle routes. They are brilliant - highly recommended. To sum up, lovely cottage in a super area.
I have visited Burnside Cottage twice and both visits were great. The cottage is lovely - well equipped and modern but also cosy and warm. It has a very pretty garden and is located in beautiful countryside with truly stunning scenery and great beaches within a short drive. The area around Port William is really interesting with very good places to eat. I will certainly stay there again.
