    Fabulous hosts and a fabulous wee cottage. Huge garden and owners field was great for two dogs. Spotlessly clean. Wood burner stove was a real bonus. The Crown in nearby Biggar is fab for food.

    A beautiful cottage with the most amazing gardens which are all enclosed, great for kids/pets. Owners were extremely helpful & we have already booked dates to go back! A fantastic find that is well worth visting.

    We loved it at the Gardner’s cottage and will definetly return as the location and comfort was perfect. The bed was so comfortable and my friend who slept in the conservatory felt the same. It was the perfect place for my husband to recoperate following a heart attack as the garden and surrounding area as he walked about with our little dog. We only got to meet two of the dogs from “skirling house” who used to call in and say hi every morning.
