  • "The cottage has No wifi at all which I think should be listed on the description."

    It states intermittent however during our whole stay there was no wifi available. It’s not a bad thing not having it but I think it should be stated. Cleanliness there were two hairs in our shower so nothing major but just attention to detail.

  • "Excellent everything was spotless and nothing was to much trouble for the owner."

    The cottage had a wonderful outlook and it was lovely staying on a working farm. The cottage was very cosy with the added bonus of a log burner and the hot tub. Our fur babies thoroughly enjoyed the walks and the scenery round about was breathtaking. We arrived at Dalbeattie early as our journey went very smoothly, we phoned the owners and they very kindly had our cottage ready early for us everything was first class. We had a wonderful break

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at sweetheart cottage."

    The owner was friendly and helpful and the cottage was very clean. Our only quibble is that we feel that there should have been more information about what was not provided such as a hairdryer and basic condiments as salt and vinegar and also washing up liquid, as we have always found these are provided by other holiday rentals. If we had known these weren’t provided, we would have brought these with us.

  • "This wee cottage is gorgeous, cosy and clean."

    The guy who met us was really friendly and helpful. The cheeky chickens coming to the door were a joy and kept my son busy! The hot tub was good fun even in the October weather. The WiFi is rubbish if that’s what you’re looking for but we kept busy exploring the local area so it didn’t matter. We’d definitely recommend this wee place!

  • "Sweetheart cottage is beautifully furnished with everything you could need."

    So cosy with the log burner and the luxury toiletries were a lovely extra treat! The location is idyllic and the hot tub a fantastic welcome bonus at the end of some fabulous days walking. The perfect place to chill.

  • "A very nicely designed and presented property in a lovely rural location, other cottages close by in the same farm, but enough privacy to enjoy your own cottage."

    Chap that has the farm very friendly and approachable if you needed anything but never interfered with your holiday. Dishwasher and Washing machine in the house. I know some the usual stuff might have been taken out like cushions I presume in line with the COVID obligations on the owners but the cottage was comfortable and any essential were easily available in the Tesco a 20 min drive away in the next wee town. Ours was a four person cottage, 2 singles and another room with a double. En-suite in one bedroom and other just over the hall from the bathroom. Warm and cosy, with central heating and option of lighting the stove. All four of us would like to book again sometime, and one of our group who suggested it had already been several times over the years.

  • "The cottage was amazing."

    I believe the hoots did not do justice of the cottage. it was very clean and warm inside. the only issue we had was we had booked the cottage for only 2 nights and we had to wait hours for the jacuzzi to heat up. we were unable to use the jacuzzi on the first night.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you found the property clean and warm. Sometimes the hot tub will not have reached temperature on arrival due to the Covid Health and Safety measures in place to keep guests safe which we appreciate has more of an impact when you are only staying for 2 nights.

The town sits within a wooded valley on the River Urr and provides access to the picturesque Solway Coast with its miles of beaches and pretty fishing villages. Dalbeattie is originally known for its granite quarry, which exported stone all over the world, most notably for the Eddystone Lighthouse and Thames Embankment. Today it is renowned for its outdoor activities with the world famous 7stanes mountain biking complex nearby as well as forest walks in Glentrool, where you can follow in the footsteps of Richard Hannay in The Thirty Nine Steps.
