Cree Hideaway in Newton Stewart was faultless. We were welcomed by the owners and a lovely touch were the flowers and wine which they gave us. The cottage was well equipped, a real home from home. The added bonus with this cottage was the little conservatory. We had a great stay and will definitely be going back.
