    A fabulous clean and cosy cottage in a perfect location very close to the beach. Having 2 elderly dogs who love water but now can't walk far, they were in their element. There is everything you need to cook within the cottage, there is a dog bowl and spot cleaners incase of any mishaps, tea, coffee, sugar, milk and most importantly, biscuits on arrival. Garden is fully enclosed and an ideal size for my 2 plodding Labradors. I actually fell in love with the cottage and area. Local shop stocks everything you need, there are supermarkets a short drive away, if needed. Local attractions are not too far to drive to, highly recommend Mull of Galloway lighthouse, cafe on site with lovely cakes, also a lovely short walk from roadside parking to the Kirkmadrine Stones. Met plenty of friendly folk on the beach. We will be back.

    Fab holiday in this lovely cottage. Stayed in the area many times but first time in Tystie cottage. Very comfortable and in a good location. Would stay again.

    A good base near a great beach. Although dog friendly, there was a worry when one of my dogs ran out of the front door and onto the busy road, when throwing a bug outside and I do think that is a drawback to taking dogs, due to the door opening straight onto the busy road. Very nice meals at the restaurant a couple of doors down the street and the dogs were allowed in the bar area. WiFi was very slow and I didn’t get a phone signal.

    We had a lovely stay at Tystie Cottage, there is easy access to the beach which you can see from the property. There is a good local restaurant, tea shop and shop. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog.

    An absolute star of a find! The weather made things perfect, but the cottage's proximity to the beach makes it a gem! (The proximity of the pub and the general store didn't hurt either!) The cottage has all of the basic amenities and is ideally situated to act as a base for exploring the surrounding coast and villages.
