    Excellent well maintained, spotlessly clean, well equipped cottage set in a beautiful quiet location yet very convenient for all amenities & sightseeing. Some fabulous beaches. Would have no problem recommending this little gem. Probably the best holiday let we have stayed in.

    The cottage was situated in the middle of Newton Stewart just right for the forests and wild life places I wanted to visit.

    Extremely well equipped and comfortable. Attention to detail - a pint of milk in fridge on arrival was a nice touch. Delightful views. Kingfishers on river. Only small problem was that access is extremely tight.

    My partner and I enjoyed our stay enormously, venturing out for a few hours each day, but relaxing the rest of the time in Otter Cottage, watching the wildlife on the river. Newton Stewart has good facilities for most things you need. Short walk from the cottage along the riverbank to the supermarket too. Quiet location, with loads of interesting things to see locally, and information supplied in the cottage. So great to go to a cottage with a good free wifi service too

    An ideal little cottage in a wonderful location. It was warm and comfortable during which was a cold January week. A place which you would look forward to coming home to after a day out walking in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
