    Easy access to facilities in Thornhill and lots of good places to walk the dog. Shower not the best - an electric one would be better. Drying towels not easy, electric towel rail needed.

    Very friendly and positive host, and very helpful.

    The shower functions exactly as you would expect. Perhaps this comment refers to the Venetian blind which is in addition to the adjacent frosted window? Property Owner

    There is a small Co-op and a Spar only a 5 minute walk from the cottage so no need to stock up at a supermarket on the way! Had a great few days at Troloss Lodge and will definitely return.

  • "Every aspect was perfect except for the difficulty when trying to maneuver the car when parking."

    A minor point far outweighed by the fabulous cottage.

    The area reserved for guests on the driveway is more than two cars wide and two cars in length. We recommend cars are turned around before exiting, and there is more than enough room for a simple three point turn. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely everything was perfect."

    A small welcome pack with any necessities you could easily forget was left for us. As a young couple who enjoy gaming, the WiFi being capable of handling a couple of devices for gaming and being able to run them at the same time was a MASSIVE plus. The owners were absolutely lovely, but also left you to your own devices, whenever we did see them they always made sure that everything was fine for us in the cottage and had other things to offer to us if we needed it. A romantic week away, just the two of us was made absolutely perfect just by this location. Will definitely be seeing them again soon.

    Lovely location for exploring the area, and surprisingly easy enough for a wheelchair user to get round. We renewed our wedding vows at Gretna Green whilst on this break, and the proprietors left us a lovely little gift upon our return. they were very thoughtful and nothing was too much trouble. I would happily recommend Troloss Lodge to anyone wanting a bit of peace and quiet.

    All windows look out onto garden. The cottage is well equipt and the bed is comfortable. The owners provide the basics in a welcome pack but local shopping is a five minute walk away. There's plenty to do in the area. Lots of country walking. Plenty of information on sightseeing provided . Pets are welcome at T roloss but if you are not a dog lover be assured that there's no sign that dogs have ever been inside. The place is spotless.

    The property is well presented and appointed. The welcome pack is probably the best we’ve ever had with wine, chocolate and shortbread amongst the usual essentials. Very friendly and knowledgeable owners for tips as to where to visit. Garden very dog friendly and safe. It was an ideal base for our exploring holiday with loads of walks, castles and forests within easy reach. Thornhill itself has plenty to offer, convenience stores for food, a chemist, pubs and hotels, a few takeaways and a couple of coffee shops/ bakeries. Would definitely recommend.
