The cottages were comfortable, clean and well equipped, the owners welcoming and informative. The location was quiet, with immediate access to woods and a beautiful salmon river: we saw red squirrels and otters. We explored the coastal walks, forests and little towns of this accessible and beautiful region. Dog friendly, good games room for rainy days. No negative comments and hope we get to visit again.
Perfect venue for our family get-together. Fantastic accommodation, beautifully fitted-out to a very high spec. Extremely clean and well cared for. Good quality beds and showers a particular bonus. Anne and Anthony were extremely welcoming, providing fresh farm eggs and spring flowers on arrival and answering all our questions. Ages 10 to 80 thoroughly enjoyed the farm activities; feeding the lambs and chickens, quad biking and roaming around the extensive grounds of Kirkwood Estate with a very happy dog! In fact, there was so much to do on the Estate we hardly left! Thank you for making our ...more
Spent a week in Hare Cottage - just me & my husband - booked as a last minute break. Welcomed by staff on site when we arrived and cottage was clean, nicely decorated and warm. Alison called in the next morning & gave us lots of info about the farm, the surrounding area, places to visit & things to do on the farm. On arrival we were left biscuits, tea, coffee & milk which was very welcoming after a long drive & before we went shopping. During the week we walked around the farm & down to the river where we chatted to the fishermen. The weather was exceptionally good which we took advantage...more
The two weeks we've been here went so quickly, it felt as if it was only two days! The staff is so friendly and helpful, the area is so peaceful,and yet, there's so much to do.
Just managed to stay at the cottage for a last minute mushroom picking weekend and we were so pleased. We arrive after work on Friday and left Sunday but it was worth it. We found the cottage spotless, well equipped, comfy. The WiFi worked well. The games room and park were in operation. We went to Lockerbie chippy and the Gin distillery and the Thai Orchid but also had lovely meals using the chanterelles, ceps and other mushrooms we found around the site. See you next year!
I have stayed here before, a few years ago, and it was exactly as I remembered it. I returned because I enjoyed previous visits, and I was not disappointed thus time.
Set off the beaten track in lovely woodland, the cottage was perfect for our need to get away from it all. Lovely walks along the river each evening and a real fire to come back to. Slightly more than we usually pay but it wouldn't put me off returning.
Super sized cottage and garden in a quiet setting. Walking distance from the Thai and Gin distillery and a short drive to civilisation. Could do with a spring clean but everything works well and the kitchen is great.
