The best cottage we have ever stayed in, everything we needed provided for us and welcoming owners.
In a wonderfully quiet location with lovely views. A comfortable cottage which was warm and cosy, had comfy beds, a well furnished lounge and great kitchen. The owners were friendly and there were pheasants and dozens of other birds visiting the garden. In the field opposite the cottage were two Shetland ponies and bats flew around the garden at dusk - you could not ask for more. Will be staying here again for sure.
Absolutely loved this holiday, the cottage was an amazing place with lots of land around to walk etc, Lots of wildlife and the local pheasants in the garden everyday, it was a pleasure to stay at Mote Cottage and we will be booking again for next year.
Lovely cosy cottage with all the comforts of home.
Superb accommodation and stay. Clean and comfortable. What I particularly liked was having a decent sized TV.
A very comfortable cottage, everything you needed was provided for with easy access to the river.
Mote Cottage is an excellent place to stay, secluded, tranquil and a great get away to relax.
The cottage was excellent and well worth the price. Loved the log burner as we had frosty mornings, it made the holiday more special. Loved feeding all the little birds in the garden. Helpful friendly owners, I would recommend it to friends and family for a relaxing stay and value for money.
The owners were very friendly and really made a huge effort to make me feel welcome and explain where everything was. I do highly recommend Mote Cottage and the excellent and friendly owners made my holiday that extra special. They certainly know how to treat holiday makers with respect and privacy. Mote Cottage is outstanding, everything I needed, like a 'home from home.' Between the owners and Sykes, everything was perfect and easy. A huge thank you to everyone involved in making my holiday an amazing one!
A beautiful cottage. It was equipped beyond our expectations and really helped us to enjoy our stay. Gardens and surrounding land just a pleasure to experience for the week and I'm grateful to the owners for their hospitality.
The location was central for the places that we chose to visit. It was set in fabulous countryside and was perfect for our needs.
Lovely cosy cottage!
A lovely quiet cottage set in beautiful country away from any traffic or the noise of a big city. Ideal retreat for anyone wanting to get away from it all. The use of the cottage garden was a wonderful idea and the children enjoyed the animals to visit. It was a good base for visiting Glasgow and the trip to Edinburgh didn't take too long either. Worth a stay.
This is a great cottage, spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and equipped with everything you need. We booked this for my husband as the fishing is outside the door, we could not have asked for more. Highly recommended.
Best BnB we stayed at during our 8 weeks travelling around the UK. The house was very comfortable and warm. Located centrally to where we wanted to be. Would definitely stay there again.
a fabulously equipped cottage in a rural and peaceful location that is located perfectly for exploring ayrshire, Dumfries & Galloway. Very doggy friendly and the perfect location for a quiet and relaxing break.
