We had a wonderful week at Kite cottage. The surrounding area and views were stunning. Washing up was a delight, looking out of the kitchen window to see the beautiful scenery and wildlife. The bedrooms were well fitted out and comfortable. The information provided by the owners meant that even on rainy days we had ideas for places to visit. The gaRead morerden is totally enclosed so safe for our dog to enjoy the freedom to explore. We thoroughly recommend a visit. Hide

Lovely cottage in a remote location that was perfect for a family break. Cottage had everything we could ask for to enjoy the break and the rural location was great for the getting out long walks with the dogs with very little traffic. Will definitely go back.

One of the best holiday properties we have stayed in for a long time. A great location to explore the beautiful countryside of this part of southern Scotland. Good layout to the property with good facilities and a friendly and warm welcome. Cottage is well located and easy to find but remains fairly secluded. Excellent views from the cottage and gaRead morerden (we were lucky with excellent weather for the whole week). Overall a great place to stay. Hide

Lovely cottage a little out the way of anything but if that's what you want it's great could do with being able to manually override the heating to dry clothes there is a heated towel rail but struggled to dry everything on it but lovely cottage.

We had a wonderful week long stay at Kites cottage. The cottage had plenty of room for our family consisting of four adults, two children and our standard poodle Otis. The homemade bread, jam and butter was a lovely surprise on arrival and the cottage was well equipped for our stay. The location of Kite's cottage was peaceful and truly beautiful. WRead moree would not hesitate to stay here again and to recommend it to friends and family wanting to holiday in the area. Hide

Cottage itself is very nice but a bit in the middle of nowhere. The 3/4 mile single track up to it is treacherous , huge potholes and fingers crossed you dont meet something coming the other way.
