    Great cottage. For us the photos of the setting of the cottage didn’t give us an accurate impression in real life. So the cottage only has front gardens, and to access the tennis courts you need to walk over the drive and garden of the people next door (the owners property) So the inside of the cottage is lovely and very lovingly decorated with lots of really nice finishing touches, pictures, ornaments etc. But again, the layout of the cottage didn’t really match up with our expectation (taken from the website) what I mean by this is the bedrooms and one of the bathrooms is directly off the living room with the fire. There is no inner hallway, it’s literally the living room and doors from the living room to the bedrooms and bathroom, and then a very narrow open tread stair case to the one upstairs bedroom - this bedroom does not have any bathroom facilities on that level. Now you may be wondering why this is even an issue that the bedrooms all come off the living room and for us it is only because we have a baby, and that meant this living room was unusable when she was asleep, as any noise made in that room or from that tv just went right into those rooms. It’s fair to say if we had no baby, we would not have even noticed this about the place but - we do - so I don’t want to bring attention to it unduly, but it did have an effect - for us. Ok let’s move on! Games room - excellent! Kitchen - excellent! Warmth - excellent! Beds - very very comfortable! Range oven - excellent! Towels...... aaah. Towels are very small. The largest towels supplied are the same size I use for my hair. Now I’m just a normal sized girl but I did find myself using all of the towels for each shower, and we all ended up doing the same (and then just washing and towels each day) so the towel size was a shame but really not the end of the world. One thing we really really enjoyed was the tennis courts and the rackets that are left there. Our favourite game ended up being a game involving the proper tennis racquets, and the giant shuttlecocks. Also the tennis court is great for little ones to potter around, also we used it for safe bike riding for one of our children. Oh before I forget there is one thing that we weren’t not aware of and that is there is a heating allowance you need to pay for in cash at the cottage. Now this is only £30 but when you’re there and the nearest cash machine is miles away single lane roads - well it would be great to know about this and for this to be on the website details too. If this on the site I apologise - although if it could be made super clear (I personally) think that would be even better. We hope the review has been informative and enlightening.

    Fabulous cottage perfectly located to explore Dumfries and Galloway, only a 5 min drive into town but you far enough to enjoy clear evenings in tranquility. The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need and the kids loved the games room, my only complaint was having to leave!

    The Wee Byre is perfectly located to explore Dumfries & Galloway, the Solway coast, the borders around Moffat & Langholm and Hadrian's wall/ Roman Forts near Carlisle. With Loch's a plenty within easy reach it was a fantastic base for us to use our kayak. All the usual amenities, shops etc are just a short drive away in Dumfries. Set in beautiful and peaceful countryside, the Wee Byre met our expectations and more. Very well equipped and impeccably clean throughout, it was a pleasure to return to each evening after a days exploring. Particular highlights for us were the kitchen and dining space with double opening doors, games room with pool table and separate TV for playstaion (our son took his own X Box) and the full size tennis court which was a real bonus. The enclosed garden was great for our Terrier to potter around in safety. The owners live next door but are not intrusive however they're on hand and happy to help if you need them. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay helped by perfect weather and would definitely stay again.
