    We have stayed in holiday cottages for over forty years and this is the best equipped. We normally take certain items with us but it was not necessary this time. Newton Stewart is a great base for all parts of Dumfries and Galloway. We certainly hope to go again.

    Excellent cottage. The owner has recently updated the kitchen to a high standard. It is well equipped all round and has everything you could need. The internet connection is a good one (gives 10-12mbs - better than any other cottage we have rented). The website description is very accurate (and I can confirm the large bed is a King contrary to what one reviewer said). The house is very well heated (we didn't use the wood burner as the central heating was more than adequate). The garden area is very nice and well equipped with a fully screened gazebo - shame it was just a little too chilly for us to fully enjoy in in early May. The owner is attentive - rang us on our 2nd day to check everything was OK and very quickly sorted one small issue. You have to be a bit careful driving out of the parking bay as motorists can come round the corner a bit too fast - the mirror is a big help although someone has vandalised it a bit. Overall we had a great stay and can fully recommend this cottage and the owners.
