Cottage was freshly modernised, very clean and everything you needed for a weeks stay. It is well located in the centre of the village, within walking distance of shop, pubs, restaurants and park. It has a small back garden which was nice to sit and enjoy the sun.
The best aspect of this cottage was the location. The cottage sits on the main road through the village, but it is still very peaceful. At the front it overlooks a grassy area and woodland and at the back a mill (converted to a visitor centre) and the river. The country aspect gave the cottage a tranquil feel, yet all the services were at hand. We especially liked the bus stop right outside as this allowed us to have some car free days. There are several good places to eat within a few minutes walk. The cottage is well equipped, clean and spacious. The bathroom has a great shower and plenty of hot water. We found the beds comfy and there was plenty of storage. The only things that it down were the downstairs layout, the kitchen feels like a corridor as it runs on directly at the end of the hall with no dividing door. The cooker and hob were quite complicated and we couldn't find any instructions. These were minor niggles though and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner is very helpful and pleasant. When we arrived we had a problem with the lock on the front door. The owner organised a joiner who came within fifteen minutes which was much appreciated. The garden is well maintained and we enjoyed eating dinner outside in the sunshine.
Perfect location, comfortable cottage, all local facilities at hand. Great walking area, local pubs with good food, tourist info, lovely beaches close by. Would definitely return to this property. Very helpful owners.
The location amenities were excellent. Lots of wonderful walks within 800 metres of the cottage. The beach was just 5 miles away, the weather did help however, wall to wall sunshine the whole week. Gatehouse of Fleet was a lovely friendly town.
We have stayed in Gatehouse many times and know the area well. This was our first stay at the cottage and it won't be the last. It was well equipped clean and spacious. The cottage is very central in the village and there is plenty of either on street parking or the village car park opposite.
A lovely cottage to relax in after walking in the countryside. Very clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend.
The location both in the village and the area were ideal. The house was lovely; well equipped and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this property.
