We love visiting Donella Cottage. It has everything you will need for a relaxing break away. The host is very nice to deal with and always leaves a tasteful welcome basket.
Crawick Multiverse is worth a visit if you like walking and highly recommend Dalscone Farm park if you have kids with you.
We stayed here for a 3 night break my husband myself and our 10 year old daughter. Our main holiday is not until later this year and these dates were the only time my husband could get off work which worked in well as our eldest daughter was at the TRNSMT festival in Glasgow. The accommodation exceeded our expectations as it looks a lot smaller in the photos, believe me it wasn’t small at all plenty of space for us. The hot tub and decking area was perfect and the small garden area especially as we were so lucky to be enjoying the rare acnotruah heatwave ! Our daughter got chatting to the neighbours who owned the horses (she loves horses and knows her way around them and the stables as she goes horse riding ) they were fab with her allowing her to help out. The cottage itself was well equipped with everything you need for a short break. There isn’t much close by apart from a local shop and chip shop but for us it was what we were after absolute peace and quiet we would definitely recommend staying here. We booked through Airbnb which is a first for us but have no complaints the owner was really quick at answering my queries and her little touches were very noticeable in the cottage such as the welcome box with bottle of wine!
We just spent the last 3 night's at donella cottage. Quiet area and was a perfect weekend. We didn't do much apart from relax in the hot tub. It was just what we needed
This cottage is on the edge of the village of Kirkconnell, sits up and back from the road with a beautiful view of the hills. My daughter found this cottage and had stayed here previously as it is dog friendly. The cottage from the outside looks deceiving. You enter through a little close which made me a little unsure about the whole thing. However, once inside I was pleasantly surprised. The property has 2 bedrooms one large which is built into the roof space and one smaller downstairs. The kitchen/dining/sitting area is combined with double glass doors onto the patio area which holds a hot tub and an area to sit in. The kitchen area is equipped with everything you can think of along with a washing machine and dishwasher.
The owner really looks after and cleans this property well. Crockery and glasses were spotless with not a fingerprint in sight (a huge bugbear of mine). I wore white slippers the whole weekend which were still white on leaving so this gives a good indication of the cleanliness. The owner left a box of chocolates an a bottle of wine as a welcome which was lovely. I will definitely return.
