    “Perfect”

    This is the most beautiful, comfortable cosy cottage I have stayed at. The pictures online do not give it justice. The cottage is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. You can see the river by sitting on the single chair by the window. You can see the trees and fields on the other side of the river by sitting on the big sofa. The best view of the river is if you sit on the window sills. There is a laundry room which is lovely and warm, brilliant to dry clothes after a muddy rainy ...

    This is the most beautiful, comfortable cosy cottage I have stayed at. The pictures online do not give it justice. The cottage is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. You can see the river by sitting on the single chair by the window. You can see the trees and fields on the other side of the river by sitting on the big sofa. The best view of the river is if you sit on the window sills. There is a laundry room which is lovely and warm, brilliant to dry clothes after a muddy rainy walk.Stayed here during Storm Ciara. The river was almost bursting its banks and the sound was lovely to sit and listen to. There is no wifi but I was able to switch the hotspot on my phone on and connect it to the smart tv so we were able to watch Netflix and catchup without any buffering. I am on Vodafone. Few things I would change if I could - - Add an outside light by the river and a table. - Close the entrance area from the car park area to the bedroom and have it closer to the wheel so the french doors can be left open on a nice day giving some privacy from the road directly to the bedroom. - Put some comfy cushions on the windowsills so sitting there is more comfortable. - Shut off the garden by the river with a little fence so its secure for the dog. My favourite days were a drive along dalveen pass and mennock pass. It took almost a full day but so beautiful, worth every second. And secondly, a walk along balcery bay, on the cliffs. Beautiful views across the solway to england and isle of man. A little mention about the bed, which by the way is lovely to sleep on, the sheets are really good quality and having an electric bed is fun!! Lovely to be able to raise the bed up and sit up with a cup of tea. The only thing is though, because it's two single beds attached together it's not the most comfortable for any romance, if that makes sense lol I rarely give full marks for a cottage but I cant not for this one, I could stay there forever.

About the location

CASTLE DOUGLAS

Dalbeattie 6 miles; Kirkcudbright 9.5 miles; Dumfries 18 miles.

The attractive country town of Castle Douglas is nestled in the southwest of Scotland, in the Dumfries and Galloway region. Castle Douglas is known locally as the 'Food Town', playing host to a large selection of independent food shops, as well as a range of wonderful pubs and restaurants. The town provides access to the picturesque Solway Coast, with its miles of beautiful beaches and scattering of pretty fishing villages. Carlingwark Loch lies just south of the town, a large, freshwater lake, great for coarse fishing and sailing. The loch itself hosts a selection of small islands, while the shores are peppered with picturesque picnic spots. Hop aboard a boat and venture to Threave Castle, perched on an island in the River Dee, and explore its glorious gardens elsewhere on the estate, open to the public all year round. Dumfries and Galloway is an area renowned for its outdoor activities including bird watching, mountain biking, fishing, star-gazing and golfing. Practise your swing on the 18-hole golf course situated in the grounds of the former 18th century country mansion, Cally Palace. Pull on your walking boots and go hiking across west Scotland’s inspiring landscape, or sail along its wonderful coastline. Whatever you fancy for your holiday in Scotland, Castle Douglas is the perfect base for experiencing it all!
