This cottage was beyond what we had hoped. It is prettier than the photos, very remote, surrounded by a gorgeous blend of rolling countryside and craggy peaks and it has the character of a real home, rather than the bland feel of the vast majority of holiday lets. There are no public roads within a mile of the house and so it is quiet: all we heard was the sound of a tractor once or twice a day. It is pitch black at night, so if you are lucky enough to have a clear sky at night you should see a fabulous stelar display. We loved the fact that we could escape from wi-fi and mobile signal. We had the perfect excuse to have a quiet week without having to deal with life outside of the Garroch Glen bubble. We really want to go back.
What to say! We had an incredible time at Lulu's cottage, it was so remote and peaceful, hidden away on the edge of Galloway Forest Park. The views from the cottage were unparalleled and your only neighbours are the barn owl and woodland animals. Surrounded by hills and forests, it's the perfect base for exploring such an amazing landscape. The cottage itself was perfect, nice and warm with the rayburn and cosy electric blankets for the evening. The cottage is generously equipped with all the kitchen supplies you need, plus a comfortable lounge and hearty open fire! The bedrooms are great and plenty of room for 4 people. Overall I couldn't recommend this cottage more! We had an incredible time and will definitely be re-visiting.
A perfect cottage sitting high on the edge of a forest with amazing views to the hills beyond. The cottage itself was warm and welcoming with rayburn in the kitchen and lots of wood for the fireplace in the sitting room. Kitchen was really well-kitted out and bedrooms were so snug with warm blankets and electric blankets if required. This was a cottage that I really didn't want to leave because it was sort of perfect and I can only imagine in the summer, sitting on the bench by the door, out of the wind, smelling the roses curling up over the door frame, and wondering what part of the landscape to explore next. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
This was a wonderful comfortable, homely cottage in the most beautiful location. It had everything we could have wished for, including an open fire and plenty of wood ready for use. It had great character and felt like we had been invited into someone's home for the weekend. It was just perfect. The setting among the hills was outstanding and we even loved rowing on the lake at the end of the garden. There is so much to see and do in this area that it was the perfect place to access all kinds of outdoor activities. We would definitely go back again for longer next time and can thoroughly recommend this cottage.
We had a lovely stay. The cottage is really beautiful, cosy and well equipped for all your needs. The location is amazing. A wonderful place to go walking in the countryside.
We spent four nights with our two young boys and loved every moment. The stay at this cottage was fantastic and very memorable. It's a stunning location and so restful and away from it all but still brilliantly located for lots to explore.
The cottage was so cosy and comfortable it was really hard to leave and return to life in a small town.
We would love to return another time when our two boys are older to enjoy the rowing boat on the loch and explore the wider landscape.
Lulu's cottage is amazing. We loved staying there - everything about it was perfect. The kitchen/diner was always warm and cosy with lovely views from the windows. The lounge was very relaxing with an open fire if required. A lot of thought has gone into the finishings of this property with very pleasing results. We found Moss Side a real haven.
There are lots of local walks, good cycling and the rowing boat on the loch is worth a venture out on.
Lulu was very helpful and gave us all the information required.
This place is definitely worth a visit.
Absolutely loved our stay here! The cottage is lovely, clean and cosy and it has everything you would need for a stay. Lulu was very responsive and helpful. Directions to the cottage were super helpful and highly accurate... Especially as the SatNav failed us lol. Thank you!
Before we arrived I had already spoke with the Lulu (the host) several times and she quickly answered my questions and gave us clear directions to find the cottage. These were really useful as even the sat Nav wasn't sure where to take us! We arrived to a bottle of wine and a lovely welcome note, the cottage is homely, comfortable and full of character. We hoped for a relaxing week and that is exactly what we had! The cottage is set in a stunning location, surrounded by countryside and we only saw a few people when we were there but there are villages and towns not too far away if you want a trip out. The two Lochs were great for fishing and having a go on the rowing boat and even the weather didn't stop us having a good time! We all said we would definitely go and stay in this cottage again.
Great host, good communication and directions etc. Nice bottle of wine turned up for us while we were there. The house is beautiful, really cosy, characterful and homely and has everything you need. It was warm, clean and welcoming when we arrived. The kitchen is really well equipped for any cooking and baking you might want to do. Lots of books, games etc in the house. Lovely big garden, also plenty of logs for the fire. It really is tranquil, we only saw a couple of people who work on the estate all week, we walked round the estate, rowed on the loch, which our boys enjoyed. Lovely to feed the birds and watch them through the windows, although they never seem to stop eating! The surrounding area is lovely, lots of nice small towns and villages, and Galloway Forest Park nearby. Lots of wildlife, deer, red kites, red squirrels. It's really quiet and peaceful, even in July, unlike England! Everyone we met was really friendly. Also, no wifi, bliss!
Great guests! Very need and friendly!
