    Just had a week at the delightful Minnow Cottage in Minnigaff. Immaculately presented with a lovely outlook to the River Cree. The cottage is very clean, warm and in a perfect location for exploring the Galloway Forest. Everything we needed was in the cottage, (towels etc) with local shops a 5 minute walk across the river to the great wee town of Newton Stewart. Would love to stay here again.... Highly recommended!!

    Minnow Cottage was absolutely ideal for a couple-clean comfortable and an ideal location but as we are used to staying in Otter Cottage and as I am disabled the layout in Otter Cottage is more suitable for us.The standard in both cottages is the best we have encountered of all the cottages we have stayed in-Well done Mi

    Ideally situated for exploring the area with both the coast and Galloway Forest Park only a short drive away. The cottage itself was clean and well-equipped.

    We had a very good holiday in this cottage. Newton Stewart is central for all sorts of interesting walks and places. It felt like home when we returned after a day out.
