    Mr Mackin – 1 Oct 2018
    "The whole place helped us feel comfortable throughout our stay. The surrounding area was very nice and we enjoyed our walks each morning before going out to other areas. The brochures were very broad and plenty of them to look at to help us decide what best to do each day. Very enjoyable stay many thanks."
    Miss Rubio Gracia – 1 Jul 2018
    "The cottage is very pretty and has all you can need and even more!"
    Mrs Saunders – 1 May 2018
    "The photographs on the website do not do this little gem justice. The Old Doctors Cottage has a certain ‘feel’ that is not conveyed by a picture. It is warm, cosy, spotless and actually felt like home to me. It Probably one of the best rentals I have ever had in Scotland. Neighbours were lovely too and they too had a lot of nice things to say about the cottage and its owners. You get a feel of good community spirit in Douglas, there are genuinely nice people who live there. I must recommend a walk around the estate. I was fortunate to have wonderful weather and spent more than one evening walking down by the pond and the river. Cannot fault. Cottage and village. Lovely. Another great rental from ."
    Mrs Maxwell – 1 Mar 2018
    "The cottage was great, lovely and cosy. Very well equipped. All bedrooms have a television, top two room very spacious, the main bedroom with en-suite excellent, loved the bath. Towels and bed linen very good quality. Overall a fantastic cottage."
    Mrs Meacham – 1 Mar 2018
    "Very spacious , great amenities ...extremely comfotable ."
    Mrs Ramshaw – 1 Dec 2017
    "Everything was so easy, we even recieved a text with our key code and when we got there, the heating was on, fresh milk and basic provisions were available for us. We felt right at home. We were delighted with the level of comfort in the cottage, the bed was so comfortable and the linen so fresh and clean. Everyone we met was so friendly and we were set right in in the heart of the village, so everytgibg was right at our fingertips. It was lovely and quiet, the kitchen was fantastic and the utility toom perfect for our pedigree cats....it felt just like home from home...in fact we were very sad to leave. We recommend the Keys pub for a drink and the Sciff Inn for a coffee and light bite. A real must is a visit to New Lanark only a 15 minute drive away. What a super place and the hosts did a great job making us feel relaxed and happy. A beautiful cottage and very good value for a family or three couples. We will return. Soon we hope."
    Mr Harris – 1 Nov 2017
    "A beautifully equipped cottage with all those little extras that make a stay perfect. Great big kitchen which made cooking, drinking, laughing and generally enjoying a break away easy. Netflix on the telly for a quiet night in or Albert and all the locals at The Cross Keys pub to offer a warm welcome if you fancy a very good pint of Guinness. Very comfortable beds. Great walks around the historic village of Douglas, must go to the graveyard and old St. Brides Church. Immediate response from the landlord and great back up from the agent. In summary, a perfect break away. We have already booked to come back."

    "One of the two toilets made a very loud humming noise when flushing, lasting almost a minute."

    "One of the two toilets made a very loud humming noise when flushing, lasting almost a minute. This would have been very off putting if occurring through the night"
    Mrs Sutton
    "Fabulous cottage. Clean comfy and cozy. Contact with the owner was excellent which made our stay feel very personal! Would definitely recommend Dr Cottage and stay again!"
    Ms Lancaster
    "A beautiful cottage with a great kitchen that made it easy for us to create great meals. The beds were really comfy and the en suite was simply stunning."
    Mrs Buchanan
    "The young lady whom we spoke to on the telephone at the time of booking was very professional and friendly. The property was in excellent condition and had been properly cleaned, the information pack was concise. I reported a leak from a sink and the owner was very concerned and would have had a plumber on site on the same day had it proved necessary. Overall one of the best experiences we have had. Full marks!!"
    Mrs Pope
    "Everything is provided for and milk eggs bread left for us with a lovely welcome card. Can't fault the cottage. Thanks for the extra care taken."
    Mrs Archer
    "Enjoyed this fabulous cottage, had everything you could wish for, was left a welcoming package with a thank you card from the owner would definitely book again"
