    Steven – 3 Sep 2018
    "Hen hoose lovely location pubs not within a mile more like 2 you can walk to but not the best at night the only 1 down side with the accommodation was the settees there 2 but the very narrow from front to back became uncomfortable after about a hour of sitting on them apart from that very small thing lovely place would stay again owners nice pleasant people as so are there children very dog friendly as the owners taken there time to make a path which is well maintained the grass is short and a nice walk to the river at the bottom we’re theres rabbits galore running around ."

    "This is a lovely comfy place in a fantastic location. It has everything you need and is close to Newton Stewart ( just a mile walk along the river!) but is also in a wonderful countryside location next to the river. The views are stunning. Within a short drive you are in Galloway forest or on one of the many beautiful beaches. The whole area is full of amazing wildlife, we saw red squirrels, red deer and red kites! Also peregrine falcons and an osprey! It is so unspoilt with quiet roads and empty beaches. The owners of the cottage are friendly and very helpful with suggestions for places to visit."

    "Really great location to enjoy forest walks, beaches, lochs, Wigtown book town, Stranraer FC 😀. Fish smoking Carsluith. Nice hosts. Good place to walk dog down back. Thanks Carole."
    Richard – 26 Jul 2018
    "A great place to stay close ro town but far enough away not to notice. Lovely views of the river estuary. Plenty of space to walk the dog. The owners are very nice and helpful. The only down side was the low ceilings upstairs but then I am over 6ft tall, we were warned and it isn't a serious issue."
    Jane – 16 Jul 2018
    "Lovely little cottage with everything that we would want. Newton Stuart about 5 minute drive away for shopping. Well located for all sorts of activities. Very quiet and peaceful. Would definitely recommed to friends and family and would stay again."
    Patrica – 10 Jul 2018
    "Place needs a good clean. Furniture old and uncomfortable. No safety rail in bathroom,bath high and difficult to get into to use shower."
    Confirmed guest – 18 Jun 2018
    "A very enjoyable 2 week holiday, a perfect base for the area with lots of walking and birdwatching opportunities. Also would be fantastic for anyone mountain or off road biking.Everything needed in the cottage with Newton Stewart 5 minutes up the road with all the food shops,post office, fish and chip and more shop.Lovely owner and family with own ghost(TV that switches itself on) . All in all a brilliant place for a holiday away from traffic and people, just watch your head upstairs if you are around 6 foot tall."

    "Excellently stay at S23697. Lovely location and condortable cottage. Felt very at home."
    stephen – 24 Mar 2018
    "Comfortable, clean and homely accommodation ideally placed for touring the area. The on-site owners were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The apartment was warm and well-equipped. Newton Stewart is about a mile away with two well-stocked supermarkets. Only niggle was that the main bedroom is over the adjoining Harness room's toilet and kitchen and a long walk from the downstairs toilet!"
    Katie – 20 Jan 2018

    Heather – 6 Jan 2018
