    "This was a first-class holiday cottage in a beautiful part of the country. We usually travel much further north, but this was an excellent spot which we intend to re-visit. The cottage was large, very comfortable and equipped to a high standard. It was spacious, warm and a delight to stay in."

    "A very cosy and welcoming cottage, ideal for us and our two dogs who loved the walks over farmland straight from our door. It was also very convenient to have an enclosed space for the dogs and a utility area where they could sleep. The cottage was very well equipped and the beds, comfortable and the owners very welcoming and helpful. Dec 2012."
    Previous guest
    "Brilliant property, the owners are excellent hosts with nothing too much trouble for them. We will be using this cottage again next year. Sept 2012."
    Previous guest
    "Such a comfortable well-equipped cottage in a beautiful setting, peaceful and quiet, loads of wildlife and lovely garden. Owners so friendly and helpful. Perfect for getting easily to both Edinburgh (the Fringe) and Glasgow (Kelvingrove Museum). Great pub (The Mill) down the road and loved the deli and Indian restaurant in Biggar. Definitely recommend. Aug 2012."
    Previous guest
    "Our holiday home was very comfortable, clean and in an ideal location. We were able to bring our dog which made the holiday even better. It really felt like home from home. Sept 2011. "
    Previous guest
    "Fantastic cottage and location, we were made to feel extremely welcome. The cottage owners were on their holiday at the time, however Mrs Scott left us in the very capable hands of Ann and Adrian, who were very friendly and would have helped us out if needed. A beautiful setting for a beautiful cottage, a great base for touring around. Aug 2011."
    Previous guest

    "This property was superb. It has been renovated to a very high specification and is very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean (I am very particular about cleanliness!) and it was very pleasing to find such a high standard. Owners were very charming and we received a warm welcome and they were generous and helpful throughout our stay. It was a difficult cottage to leave! We loved it! Our thanks, please to the owners. Aug 2010."
    Previous guest

It was by far the best equipped cottage we have stayed in and was set in beautiful countryside.The owners were very welcoming as were the neighbours and it was an ideal location for those with dogs. Dec 2009."
