“Beautiful cottage for a family break”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Beautiful cottage in lovely setting which had everything we could need for a family break with 2 young girls. We all had a great time and found the cottage to be a good base for heading into Ayr and Dumfries while Kirkconnel and Sanquhar themselves also seemed nice and had everything we needed.

The cottage itself is located on farmland next-door to the owners' own house and there are horses for the kids to see and hens roaming free and laying eggs for guests!

Thanks to Malcolm and Lorraine.

“What a find highly recommend ”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

There is no rating high enough for this place. We stayed over for a weekend for my wife's birthday. The owners Malcolm and Lorraine were really accommodating they arranged for a bouquet of flowers for my wife to be there for our arrival. The cottage is very spacious and clean. The furniture is so comfortable after a long day it's hard to get up. You can tell Malcolm and Lorraine take good pride in what they do to make sure you have the best stay possible and we will definitely be visiting again soon. The only down side for me is I now have to build a chicken coup because my wife loved the friendly chickens and wants some of our own.

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights to relax before a hectic Christmas and it was absolutely perfect in every way, peaceful surroundings, beautiful decor, freshly laid eggs waiting for us and the cottage all done up for Christmas gave it the final touch. The cottage was cosy and beds very comfy, the owners are lovely and very welcoming, the cottage had books to read, games to play and plenty DVDs to keep you entertained, we would throughly recommend a visit to Malcolm and Lorraine's peaceful paradise. We will be back again next year, maybe for a few extra nights. Thank you
