  • "Great place to stay and very conveniently located for shops, restaurants takeaways etc."

    We loved it.

  • "The cottage is in a great location with pubs, restaurants, cafes & shops close by."

    The cottage itself is warm, comfortable & very well equipped. We cooked every day and the kitchen didn’t lack of anything. The shower was great & the water nice & hot although not the easiest to get in & out of if you have mobility issues & the towels were tiny! I would suggest bringing a bath sheet! The beds & pillows were comfortable although please note the main bed is a double not a king size as stated. The furniture is the living room was nice & comfortable but there was only 2 of us. The sofa is a 2 seater & then there is a chair so four adults would struggle to relax & watch tv but it wasn’t an issue for us. I think the cottage could benefit from a welcome pack. There was no information about recycling & heating. No instructions on using the oven. No emergency numbers for doctors or a dentist or the cottage owner/cleaner should something go wrong. We managed perfectly fine as we visit Scotland a lot so have an understanding of the recycling but it would have also been helpful to advise that there was a glass recycling bank right at the side of the house! We discovered this purely by accident. The only other thing to mention is that the only bathroom is upstairs so if you have mobility issues the stairs are quite steep when you need to use the facilities. Overall we enjoyed our stay. The price of the cottage offered great value for money.

  • "The house is very convenient and a very good location."

    We enjoyed our stay, despite 4 rainy days in the week. I wanted to visit Drumlanrig when the house was open. We also found a lovey drive west via Moniaive which was beautiful. The house was well equipped in the main but would benefit from a grab rail over the bath to help stepping out after a shower. A footstool would be useful and the chair in the bedroom is much more comfortable than the small chair downstairs, could they be swapped?

  • "Excellent base for exploring Dumfries and Galloway although we were visiting an elderly relative so didn’t get around very much."

    Alpine Place had everything we needed and was very comfortable. It was very cold when we arrived but didn’t take long to warm up. Thank you

  • "Beautiful holiday cottage, the whole cottage was spotlessly clean and very comfortable."

    The bed and bed linen felt very good quality and everything in the property was maintained too a very high standard. The back garden was a sun trap which my children loved having breakfast in. The pictures do not do the cottage justice- it is much larger than the pictures make it appear and is very spacious. There was plenty of kitchen accessories, mirrors, chairs and everything you could possibly need. A real GEM!!! Would highly recommend! Thank you :-)

    Very much appreciate your lovely comments. We spend quite a few weeks in the cottage ourselves and try to keep everything well maintained plus we love the location . Thank you again so happy you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Property is in a great location and well appointed."

    There are just a few things lacking - mirrors, chairs in living room, wardrobes need to be secured to the wall, a bigger bed in the double room, plug sockets are too low to the floor to plug items in.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. We have taken your comments on board and rectified matters as far as we can. There is now an additional mirror and chair. Extension lead to compensate for the low sockets and the wardrobes properly secured. We hope you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    Thornhill has good facilities and a number of interesting shops and eateries. I was confused by the welcome email which talked about scanning the QR code in the property for 'track and trace' purposes. I never did find this code and I phoned the owner who had no knowledge of it!

About the location

THORNHILL

Dumfries 15 miles; Ayr 42 miles; Glasgow 66 miles.

The quiet village of Thornhill is in the Mid Nithsdale area of Dumfries and Galloway in southern Scotland, and is an ideal place for a relaxing break. Surrounded by wonderful scenery and the low hills of Carsphairn and Lowther, there are plenty of opportunities to walk and cycle these ancient hills. In the centre of Thornhill village is a column supporting a majestic winged horse, which is the emblem of the Dukes of Queensberry who own the surrounding land and also the magnificent Drumlanrig Castle. Set on an 80,000 acre estate comprising a country park and Victorian gardens, Drumlanrig Castle is regarded as one of the finest examples of late 17th century Renaissance architecture in Scotland and also boasts an internationally renowned art collection. Thornhill’s location means that it is ideal for a day trip to the seaside at Ayr or a day’s shopping and sightseeing in cosmopolitan Glasgow.
