This was a total chill out, owners were very friendly and helpful. Hot tub was covered by a gazebo with coloured fairy lights above, looking out over fields. Pub/ thai restaurant just over the road, and a gin distillery 10 minutes walk away. The bathroom has a chemical toilet, but this works fine and plenty of eco friendly bamboo toilet roll was prRead moreovided. Also shower/ handgel and washing up liquid provided. Cant wait to go back, fab time was had!! Hide

Perfect for a short relaxing stay, everything you need is at hand, ideal base to explore south west Scotland

Probably better suited to short stays than a full week. Cooking facilities limited to microwave and single hob. Location is quiet with uninterrupted views of the countryside. A great place to switch off from everything.
