“Paradise - one of the best cottages we have stayed in ;0)”

My husband and I travelled to Drummore for a holiday in October to stay in this lovely cottage. What can I say - Jim has thought of everything - it is tastefully furnished, comfortable, cosy, a real home from home. Views to die for and the friendliest hosts you could ask for. From arriving to find flowers, wine and home made shortbread with a lovely anniversary card (it was our anniversary during our stay;0), the place was already warm, beds made up, plenty of towels, extra bedding etc. The location is breath taking and Jim does not believe in ripping people off with inflated prices at different times of year - this had to be the best value for money holiday we have ever had! We had most of our meals down at the hotel just outside Drummore but there is a well equipped kitchen with more than enough pots, pans utensils etc to prepare a feast if you wanted. It also has a washer/dryer for keeping up to date with the laundry while you are there. Yes it is remote - to get to any decent shops you need to drive up to Dumfries (which I did twice during the week), but there is a village store and a lovely café in Drummore so you can pick up essentials. We also had a trip down to the southernmost point to visit the Lighthouse and the lovely coffee shop there - both well worth a visit. In spite of the weather being pretty awful most of the week the cottage walls are so thick and it is so well insulated that we didn't have to worry about it one little bit. We were so sorry to leave to come home after one of the most relaxing breaks we have had. I am disabled and this was definitely easy access for me as it is all on the level - no steps or stairs to worry about. The master bedroom is en suite and there is a lovely big family bathroom and two twin rooms as well if you have family with you. Only downsides are - no broadband access and only limited vodaphone signal for mobile phones - I am on O2 so ended up driving to Dumfries and buying a coupld of cheap vodaphone mobiles on pay as you go tarrifs so we could keep in touch with one another and family at home while we were there - took laptop out with me and was able to check up on work, family, emails etc in the café in the village, the local hotel where we ate and a café in Dumfries where I stopped for lunch. We did manage to get a signal on our O2 phones standing just by the door in the porch so it is possible if you move about a bit ;0) All in all - we would thoroughly recommend this amazing cottage, the wonderful hosts and the beautiful and remote area to anybody wanting a relaxing, get away from it all holiday - we will definitely be back some day xx
