    The cottage is in a village up in the hills. It is quiet and away from the hussle and bustle which is what we wanted.

    WOW. What can I say? The cottage has everything you could possibly want and more.... The lovely thoughtful gifts of wine and eggs on our arrival was a really lovely idea. (Much appreciated) The beds are so comfortable (we didn`t want to get up). The whole cottage is clean and just like home from home. We met the owners and what lovely people they are... Friends for life! Poor cockerel has gone to a new home (not the cooking pot) although the owners have chickens and ducks, which out daughter loved feeding. It`s just so quiet and peaceful, which is what we was looking for. We found lot`s to do, walking on the beach with our dogs, Whiskey Experience Shop, Tea-Room, Lifeboat Centre, Trump Turnberry Golf Course and much more. Taking photographs of the beautiful area and the animals. Yes I didn`t get mobile phone signal but that`s part of being rural and not the fault of the owners.... (that`s your own provider) There is Wi-Fi and Sky TV if you need it.... If your looking for a quiet, get away from it all holiday then this is perfect.... Overlooking the fields with sheep in, ducks and just beautiful hills. We can`t wait to go back..... Thanks guys for welcoming us into your beautiful cottage, we had a fantastic time....

We are pleased that you found the lodge to your expectations.

    Unfortunately my friend and I were extremely disappointed with our break at the lodge. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon on a bitterly cold day. The lodge itself is well equipped and clean. Unfortunately we were unable to control the heating from inside the lodge itself as the owner controlled the heating from his house which was attached to the lodge. On the first night which was extremely cold I went to the owner next door to tell him we had no heating and we were absolutely freezing. Unfortunately there was no answer at the door but strangely enough the heating came on shortly afterwards for a few hours!! The following day the owners approached us as we were leaving and asked if everything was all right. When I told them about the heating the gentleman said it was on 24 hours and we could control it from the lodge. I can assure you this was not true and the control he showed us did not operate at all it was controlled from his own house!!!! Unfortunately because we were so cold we had decided to cut our stay short and come home the following day as I developed an eye problem as well. When we returned to the lodge that day The owner came out with an oil filled radiator and said we could use it if we were still cold. I cannot believe he actually done this as we would never contemplate using a radiator if the central heating was on. He also said he had turned the central heating up. We returned to the lodge at 3.30pm and timed when the heating was going on and off, The heating came on at 8.30pm and went off at 11pm. It came on the following day from 8am until 9am. Fortunately we were coming home on the Thursday anyway as we just couldn't tolerate the cold it was absolutely freezing and the owners were made aware of it on more than one occasion. So unfortunately our wee break turned into an extremely unpleasant experience, we were supposed to stay until the Saturday so it was an extremely expensive outlay for two nights stay. Very very disappointing.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for taking the time to provide such a lengthy review. The detail of which clearly helps us to understand that our written and verbal instructions on how to use the thermostat to control the central heating system within the lodge need to be simplified/improved. I truly apologise if this was unclear, I thought that when I greeted you on arrival and took time to further explain the thermostat control that it was understood. The information folder includes details of the six events that the digital thermostat controls. These events are not on off times, they are pre-set temperature variations which can be over ridden manually to your preferred level if required, as you were shown. If the room temperature is at or above the set point then the heating will be on standby. when the room temperature drops below the set point the heating comes on. People may sometimes think this type of system is not working because they expect the radiators to be hot all the time. Everyone has a different metabolism, where some people are always warm and some people always cold. Where as you found the lodge cold on your first night, other guests find it too warm and leave windows open, even in winter. I am sorry that you have such a cynical opinion that the heating is not under the control of the guests using the lodge, the manner in which you express this opinion is grossly inaccurate. We strive to meet each individuals requirements, as we accept each and everyone has a different level of need. All reviews are welcome as they often help us improve for future visitors. Although on balance there are other reviews which indicate we have got it right already.

    Stayed for less than 30 minutes then left and came home. Was not prepared to stay looking at the amount of rubbish outside, including a large blue trailer. Grass full of ducks no way my 2 pugs were going to walk round in that.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. It is a shame that you spent so little time before deciding to depart as we feel the quiet rural location and our low intensity small holding is a great central point to explore SW Scotland, the Galloway Forrest and Solway coast. Your comment of the Blue Trailer is well received, yet the items we believe you may have referred to as rubbish are a stock pile of fire wood, and a round straw bale for our livestock. Sorry you feel that your Pugs would not like the ducks, we try to minimise the amount of time our birds are kept in their enclosures, allowing them as much freedom and best welfare as possible. Additionally we generally ask that all visiting pets are kept on a lead to avoid disturbance to our poultry etc. Hope your future winter season breaks are situated more to your needs.

    hi cottage very clean and comfortable but time of year if you have a dog to walk not recommended very sludgy road to walk on and know lighting also outside cottage seems a dumping ground very untidy not nice on approach to look at we did pay cheap rate due to time of year but if different time and paying 4 or 5 hundred pounds would have been very upset. owner did appear very nice person and did leave bottle wine and biscuits very gratefull for that.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. For sure the winter season in a rural location comes with the associated climate. Our property being situated off an unlit B class road with soft verges means that nature often creeps into the daily routines. The maintenance of the public highway and lighting of same is outwith our control. We strive to ensure that the access on our own property is clear and well lit. Of course being a small holding there are some items stored on site, but clear parking and safe pedestrian access to and from the lodge are always maintained.
