West cottage is in a beautiful location, with fantastic views over the Solway Coast. The cottage is a good size, very clean with all the amenities needed for a good stay; though it's a little dated and in need of a little TLC it is comfortable. It has a nice enclosed well maintained garden. A gardener came mid week cutting the grass, but unfortunately didn't collect the grass when finished and seeing there is no real foot path, ended up with grass cuttings through out the house. This was very inconvenient. Also the gardener left the heavy plant pots in front of the door. Which would of been a hazard had we tripped over them and pretty inconvenient to have to move.
On arrival we met the owner who explained the shower head holder was damaged and would be repaired the following day. That never happened. So it was inconvenient having to hold the shower head while showering
There is no Wi-Fi in the cottage and a very poor mobile signal. Which is very frustrating, there is a signal at the local pub so it's a good excuse to go to the pub, but this wasn't what we really wanted to do daily.
They seem like little things but I don't come on holiday for inconvenience and daily visits to a pub to get enough of a signal to plan days out and get access to maps and timetables.
Would I return? Yes nice cottage, good location with great views
Our family group of 6 (three generations) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. The cottage is very well equipped and the kitchen although rather cramped lacked for nothing in terms of facilities and utensils. The upstairs bedroom is fantastic with wonderful views over the sea. The garden is extensive and great for the children to play. The local beach is only a few minutes walk away or a couple of minutes in the car and the children in particular loved it there. We self catered and there is a shop nearby at Colvend, a co-op at Dalbeattie 15 mins drive away and a big tescos at Castle Douglas a bit further away. Enjoyed trips to Kippford, the Cream of Galloway and a number of local beaches. Thank you for a great holiday.
