"Our second time at Collieston cottage, & it was just as fabulous as the first time."
Cosy, peaceful, very high standards inside & out. Beautiful views, peaceful & the best hot tub I have ever used, especially after a day's walking. Thank you Hayley & Keith x
Thank you. We look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner
"A beautiful cottage, had a great stay."
Thank you. Pleased you found your stay enjoyable. Regards. Hayley Harvey. Property Owner
"What a beautiful place to stay."
Everything was perfect, cottage beautifully presented, very clean and well equipped. Hottub area was fantastic as well, with beautiful views over the countryside and beyond but also undercover incase the weather was poor. Hosts provided a host of little extras to get us started on our break which included logs and kindling, matches and firelighters for the wood burner. Tea, coffee and shortbread provided in the kitchen as well as the small stuff like salt n pepper, cooking oil, tinfoil n baking paper. Absolutely excellent place to relax and unwind and we are definitely going to rebook as soon as we can.
Thank you for your positive feedback. Lovely to know you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"We had a wonderful stay at Collieston Cottage, it was spotlessly clean on arrival and it’s very well equipped."
The lovely little wood burner and the hot tub turned our trip into a cozy little getaway. The cottage is very secluded, which was what we were after, but it’s only a 30 min drive or so to the next big city. It’s a lot more spacious then the pictures might suggest and we loved the little themed bedroom decoration and the other thoughtful little touches you can find all over the cottage. The area surrounding the cottage is just beautiful. We loved every second of our stay and will definitely be back! Also the hosts were really friendly and helpful.
Thank you so much for your feedback following your stay at Collieston Cottage. Property Owner
"An oasis of peace resulting in an amazing holiday."
The hot tub is excellent and the cover means you can use it in any weather. The cottage is immaculate and very well equipped. Highly recommended and we're fussy
Thank you for the lovely feedback. Property Owner
"Propert is excellent we had a lovely holiday and it is good that you can use hot tub hail, rain or shine as it is covered."
We have been to a few cottages over the years but this is definitely the best.
Thank you so much. Great to know you enjoyed your break at our little cottage. Property Owner
"Amazing family holiday and will definitely be back!"
The cottage was better than the pictures. So cosy and in the middle of nowhere. Just what was needed to get away from busy city life. It had everything you would need and more. Attentive hosts, there at the drop of a hat to help with anything! Loved our time.
Thankyou so much for your lovely feedback. Property Owner
"We spent a perfect week at this gorgeous secluded cottage."
One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. So much attention paid to the decor and facilities. Our border collie pup loved watching the sheep and cows. Loads of walks from the door or a short drive away. We loved it and can’t wait to make a return visit . Hysterical fabulous !
Thank you. Lovely feedback. Much appreciated the advice about a couple of points we can improve on. Property Owner
Spotless and well-equipped. The surroundings were stunning and peaceful. The hot tub just topped it all off. It was such a pleasure to stay here. We'll be back.
"Stunning property, lots of lovely little homely touches and extremely clean."
Very quiet and peaceful and the views were outstanding. Will definitely be back
Thank you. Your review of our cottage is very much appreciated. Keith & Hayley Harvey Property Owner
"The Cottage is beautiful, spotless and really comfortable."
It’s much bigger than we expected and the views are truly stunning. It has to be the most well equipped cottage we’ve stayed in! Excellent communication from the owners and Hayley and Kieth made us feel very welcome, it really was a home from home. The hot tub is a fantastic feature with a fabulous view. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat, perfect location for exploring the area.
Thank you so much. Look forward to your return visit in the Spring. Property Owner
"When booking a holiday house, you can never be too sure what you are going to find and if the house will look anything like the photos."
Collieston cottage is a real gem and exceeded our expectations. The location and views are absolutely gorgeous. The actual cottage was well presented, clean, welcoming and cosy. The doggy welcome basket was great and the selection of shortbread biscuits were a great welcome treat for everyone. Although it is a working farm, the cows and sheep didn't bother us and the children loved seeing the animals in the fields close to the cottage. The upstairs lounge/bedroom area were great for the older children as they loved have their own space. The hot tub was great and the views from the hot tub was amazing. Last but not least, the owners were lovely too. Although they are around on the farm, they are not intrusive at all and it was lovely talking to them. We normally don't like going back to the same place more than once as we like exploring different places, but Collieston cottage might have changed our minds.
Thank you for taking time to leave a review for our cottage. So pleased you enjoyed your week on the farm. Keith & Hayley Harvey. Property Owner
"We had a fabulous time, great location, fantastic views, children didn't want to leave."

Thankyou for the lovely feedback. Property Owner
"What a beautiful, peaceful place to stay."
I booked this as a surprise for my Mums 60th and wish I had booked for longer, we didn't want to leave. Definitely a home away from home, with everything you could ever need. We will 100% be back and for longer next time.
Thank you. Property Owner
"Collieston Cottage is one of the nicest places we have stayed."
The cottage has everything you need and more plus the little extras like toothbrushes, toothpaste face cloths and shower gels. The dog also doesn't miss out as there are dog treats, towels, bowls and poo bags provided. We will certainly return.
Thank you for the lovely feedback. Much appreciated. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner
"We had a fantastic few days at Colliestone Cottage."
Extremely peaceful, truly relaxing break with breathtaking views. The cottage was just perfect home from home, the wood burning stove an added bonus. The outdoor space is great we loved using the hot tub under the gazebo in the evening and our labrador loved the large enclosed garden. We will definitely return.
Thank you. Lovely to know you enjoyed your break at our cottage. Many thanks, the cottage was spotless on your departure. Property Owner
"Me and my family came for my daughter’s 16th birthday and what a memorable 16th it was."
Waking up to those views each morning and added hot tub was just perfect. The cottage is very well kept to a fantastic cleanliness standard and it was noticed as soon as we walked it, smelt beautiful. Beds were so cozy. Hot tub and outside area was honestly perfect. We will be back definitely and we loved it very much. Thank you for letting us stay. The ballochs x
Thankyou. Property Owner
"What an absolutely amazing cottage in an amazing part of Scotland."
The photo's do not do it justice regarding the size it was much bigger than we thought it was going to be which was good.What made it even better was the amazing extras and little touches that had been done it had everything and more being away from home that you could possibly need or want.I would definitely recommend this cottage and can't wait to return in the future.
Thank. So pleased you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner

"The cottage is fantastic."
It is cared for and finished to a high specification. This is home from home. The views are spectacular from the hot tub albeit they are provided by nature. There is absolutely nothing even slightly disappointing about this beautiful property. The owners are great to deal with too.
Thank you. Lovely to know you had a relaxing time in our llittle cottage. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner
"We had a lovely family weekend at Collieston Cottage."
Gorgeous cottage in stunning surroundings, had everything we needed and more. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.
Thank you so much. Pleased you had everything you needed to have a pleasant break. Property Owner
"Great cottage lovely location and views if somewhat remote for takeaway foods ..."
Great cottage lovely location and views if somewhat remote for takeaway foods only down side which is no reflection on the holiday was the terrible state of the roads in Scotland otherwise great holiday
Thankyou. Sadly our roads are not maintained very well here in Scotland. Hope that didn't affect the enjoyment of your holiday. I will update our listing to ensure everyone knows that our cottage is fairly remote. Property Owner
"Fabulous cottage in a beautiful setting with everything you could possibly need!"
Thankyou for your lovely feedback. Pleased your enjoyed your stay. Property Owner
"A wonderful cottage in a tranquil setting."
Beautiful surroundings and what a find! A very well equipped cottage that does not disappoint. We spent seven relaxing days at this property and were sad to leave. We would definitely return to this place which we highly recommend. You will not be disappointed! Thank you to the owners Hayley and Keith. Five stars ⭐️.
Thank you so much. Pleased you enjoyed your stay. Keith and Hayley. Property Owner
The cottage itself was one of the most well equipped cottages we have stayed in. Everything was supplied that would be needed. It was like staying in your own home. All the welcome packages were a lovely touch and it is these little things which make the difference. This was a family holiday although all members were adults. The wi-fi was the best we have every experienced whilst being away and all four of us were able to check in and use all of our devices at the same time. Quite remote which is what we had wanted. The hot tub was fantastic and the views wonderful despite a full week of typical Scottish rainy weather (which we were also prepared for). We would definitely recommend this cottage and would definitely consider booking up again next year! It was also nice for the owners to check in with us half way through our stay to ensure everything was okay.
Thankyou. We have tried to make the cottage as much as a home from home as possible. Pleased you have a good time with your family. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner
"The cottage is fantastic and has everything your could ever need."
I would recommend this cottage to everyone and the drive from Edinburgh was also beautiful and very scenic.
Thankyou very much. Pleased you enjoyed your weekend in our cottage. Keith & Hayley Property Owner
"A brilliant week away."
Such peaceful surroundings and a very well equipped and clean cottage. Kids loved the hot tub and outdoor space to run around. Can’t wait to return in the future. Only criticism is mattresses could do with being renewed as not too comfy
Thankyou for your feedback. We only opened in July 22 so wouldn't have thought that the mattresses would require renewal yet. Obviously everyone has different preferences to the type of mattress they have, but will certainly take this on board. Thankyou. Property Owner
"Collieston cottage is just perfect and the scenery is beautiful ."
The cottage is fully equipped with all you could possibly need , is comfortable and super clean. Hayley and Keith are lovely and very welcoming. Thank you so much for a lovely stay, we will definitely return.
Thankyou so much. Was lovely to have met you all. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner
"This cottage definitely has the wow factor, inside & out."
It has everything you need, even down to towels & treats for the dog. The beds were extremely comfortable. The hot tub was hot, the best one I've been to & had amazing views. The pergola was an excellent addition although despite being in Scotland we didn't have rain! Communication with Hayley & Keith was excellent. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Thankyou so much for your review. Pleased you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner
"This holiday cottage is amazing, the effort and thought put in to it is outstanding!"
The dog basket , the complimentary drinks/ snacks, the books and games! We have just loved it, would 100% recommend to family/friends and we would love to go back !! :) Great place to go and just relax away from Busy life!
Thank you. Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage for a relaxing holiday."

Thank you. So pleased you enjoyed your short break. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner
"Our second stay here within 6 months - says it all!"
A wonderfully relaxing and well-equipped place to unwind. Ideal if you want. Peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle. Travelled with elderly mother and a young dog - both enjoyed their stay!
Thank you for the great feedback. Hope to see you again soon. Property Owner
"We had an amazing stay at Colliston Cottage."
It’s honestly a home from home. Very clean and everything you could need. Clearly a lot of thought has been put in to appointing this so well. Great location close to Dumfries, perfect for stocking up, going for a coffee etc. lots to see and do. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to go back soon.
Thank you for the lovely feedback. Keith & Hayley. Property Owner
"Beautiful property - everything was so new and clean you could really see the effort that has been put in."
There were little baskets or goodies tea, coffee, milk, sweets. The same in the bathroom for all you would need. We loved the log fire after our hot tub sessions. The only comment I would make is make sure you have everything as nearest wee shop is 25 mins away - it is in the middles of nowhere which perfect. We went for some nice walks around the farm - searching for the gate that led to a stone path as per instructions in the welcome book. For a bunch of city slickers this proved to be a funny escapade as every farm gate looked the same. Found the walk… after a day! I would definitely recommend for anyone looking to relax and rejuvenate!
Thank you. Pleased you enjoyed the peace and quiet at our little cottage. Will pop a notice on the gate onto the track to make it easier to find. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage in a beautiful area."
It ticked all the boxes and we wanted for nothing. We only wished we had more time there! Will be returning next year for sure.
Thank you for the great feedback. Pleased you had a good time at Collieston Cottage. Property Owner
"A fantastic cottage, with fantastic facilities and amenities."
We felt right at home, the moment we arrived. Such a quiet and peaceful setting, exactly what we needed. The star gazing at night mesmerised my son and daughter. We didn't know how the children would take to a cottage in the middle of knowhere, they enjoyed it so much, they're keen that we return again next year. The McKinnons
Thank you. Pleased you enjoyed your stay. Many thanks for leaving the cottage as you found it. Property Owner

"Property was delightful"
Thank you. Pleased you liked our little cottage. Property Owner
"What a fabulous place to spend a couple of nights!"
Immaculate cottage and had everything we needed. The views are spectacular and the decor, the use of the old outside toilet to house the recycling, and the lights along the track to the cottage (once dark) are lovely touches. Highly recommend this property. Be aware the upstairs bedroom really does have a low ceiling, our 6’2” tall son found it interesting but was fine once he was in the bed! Would be perfect for children. The hot tub is a lovely bonus. Thank you!
Thank you. Our attic bedroom/sitting area are compact and will adjust this on our Cottage information. Feedback much appreciated. Property Owner
"A fabulous holiday cottage in a beautiful location."
The cottage has all the facilities you need plus more and everything has been completed to a very standard. The hot tub is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view and the wildlife.
Thank you. So pleased you enjoyed your stay in our cottage. Property Owner

Thank you. Look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner
"The cottage was everything we could have wished for, and more!"
We had a wonderful stay and cannot wait to return in the future. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we could have possibly needed for our stay and the welcome pack of milk, jams, butter and biscuits was a bonus extra that we all thoroughly enjoyed - especially my 12 year daughter! Thank you for a perfect “staycation” at the beautiful Collieston Cottage.
Thank you so much. Pleased you enjoyed your stay in our new venture. Look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

About the location
Castle Douglas 18 miles; Gretna 30 miles; Kirkcudbright 40 miles; Lake District National Park 50 miles;
Known as the Queen of the South, Dumfries is a market town and former royal burgh and is the largest town in south west Scotland. It lies close to the mouth of the River Nith as it opens into the Solway Firth. Its origins are mysterious and are believed to involve at various times the ancient Romans, St Ninian and there is evidence of King Arthur having fought battles in the area. It is also held that Malcolm Canmore and William the Conqueror met here in the 11th century and William Wallace pursued the English through the surrounding Nith valley 200 years later. Robert the Bruce killed his rival John Comyn in the Greyfriars Kirk in Dumfries and Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed in the town for a few days in the mid 18th century and the poet Robert Burns moved to Dumfries in 1791 and staying until his death five years later. Today Dumfries is a bustling popular town with much to offer the visitor. Its location makes it ideal for exploring the coastline with its sandy beaches and rocky inlets to the Galloway Hills and Ae forest offering superb walking and cycling on the famous 7 stanes trails. Visit stunning Caerlaverock Castle and Nature Reserve or indulge in some high octane excitement with the Scottish Rally based in Dumfries each summer.
