My young son, my lovely old dog and I recently visited New Cumnock to collect our new puppy and were lucky enough to book into Afton Water. Ali and Julie were very welcoming and within a few hours we felt like part of their family. We have had a pretty rough time of things lately and this getaway was just what we needed. It was my birthday while we were there and Julie and my little boy baked me a lovely lemon cake, Julie is the celebrated artist J H Winter and when I needed to relax she even gave my son painting lessons and Al took him and my dog for a walk along the river with their lovely dog Annie. Baby ducklings, 'cockadoodle doo's' gorgeous scenery, wonderful home made food and fantastic hosts . We honestly felt like moving in and are looking forward to seeing them all again very soon.
