The only issue we encountered, and would like to recommend to others who plan on visiting the cottage, is that the garden is fully fenced and great for small dogs, but if anyone plans on visiting with a larger dog ( such as ourselves) we have an American Akita...is that a very small portion of the fence behind the garage and gate only ( is easily aRead moreccessible for larger dogs to jump) ..and should not be left unattended.

This is a very comfortable and homely cottage in a beautiful tranquil setting. The large garden is super dog friendly and our two dogs loved playing in it. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in such a lovely place which lacked for nothing. ps- very comfortable beds!

There was a bottle of bubbly, milk, and fresh flowers left by the owners on our arrival, and other useful household cleaners etc were provided, which was a lovely touch. The scenery was stunning, and the back garden was huge, and enclosed, making it totally safe for our dog. The cottage was clean and the facilities were excellent.

Cosy, comfortable well equipped cottage. The enclosed garden was ideal for our dog as were the many walks from the door, although dogs do need to be kept on a lead on the estate. Quiet, peaceful location but within easy reach of beautiful coastal walks and the Southern Upland Way.

Lovely cottage. Clean and comfortable. Good location for walking, but dogs have to be on leads on the estate. Had to wash some crockery before being able to use. Handtowel in bathroom was not clean. No loo roll! I would recommend this cottage as overall it was good.

A spacious bright and homely cottage which was perfect place for exploring the area. Very well equipped and peaceful. Great walks all around, would recommend especially to dog owners. Just a few tweaks needed to repair minor wear and tear but would happily recommend or stay again.
