“good location”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This place worked for me because of the location, it takes dogs, and allows short breaks. The owner was friendly and helpful.
It is extremely close to the busy A75. and it is overlooked by other cottages.
There is no bath.
The furnishings and fittings are a bit basic/dated

“Cozy cottage.”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Quiet, clean cottage. Easy to find and not too far from town. Everything was lovely. We did have some trouble with the washing machine - it didn't spin dry the clothes so they were sopping wet when we removed them. There is no electric dryer, just a folding rack. Other than that, it was great. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was clean and modern.

“Small, and well proportioned.”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Easy to find and very welcoming. The owners met us when we arrived and showed us around, explained how appliances worked and then left us to make a cup of tea and biscuits which with coffee had been left for us., also vase of flowers made it very friendly.Everything was clean. Bedclothes and towels were provided and as we stayed a fortnight, were changed halfway through our stay. The only small problem was an intermittent WiFi, but apart from that we had a very nice stay.
