The directions to the property are incorrect.. You have to go to the double green gates to get entry, not the single green gate. The owner has repeatedly tried to get you to correct this information, but it has not been done.

We thought that items like cutlery/plates etc were rather sparse and there were no wine glasses-I went to supermarket to buy some! ! The arrival arrangements were not good,we were never told about gates to castle that automaticly opened when you approached close and we thought you had to have a code when we saw the code mechanism on the side, and we wasted a lot of time having to ring you and get instructions after driving for 4 hours,not very pleasant!! and not the only ones.On the whole we enjoyed the holiday and found it very relaxing and peaceful at the castle grounds.

After a few challenges in terms of arranging to get the keys the cottage itself was lovely and in a beautiful quiet location.. Well equipped for cooking and a a good size shower though the cottage itself was a little dark without the lights on during the day. But the surroundings were stunning - even saw a young deer in the grounds. A few small things would have made it perfect - 1st the bed -made up as 2 singles - and the mattresses on both moved around making it uncomfortable to sleep on for the first 2 nights until we discovered they could be zipped together! The taps on the bathroom didn’t work properly but again were fixed . The only really thing missing was access to WiFi. Would recommend the Kirkmichael arms for delicious food

Although this property was well located, in pleasant grounds, had good quality fittings, the actual requirements for self caterers were lacking, the inventory needs checking.. We had to buy cleaning clothes and frying pan, drunk wine from tumblers, had three table knifes and teaspoons, 2 mugs (two others = one was dirty despite cleaning, another badly cracked, These were reported on the first night and removed but never replaced). Disappointing and indicative that Sykes do not undertake random inspections.

The cottage is in a beautiful spot and is so quiet and peaceful.. The grounds are lovely to walk in. The local village of Kirkmichael is excellent, for food at The Community Shop and the Kirkmichael Arms public house. We encountered one problem (light bulb) and Richard fixed this very quickly. So want to return to Duck Pond Cottage. Thank you!

The Duck Pond Cottage was incredible! It was such an amazing location and it offered such a comfortable space for my wife and I. It was spacious enough for two people and it was fully stocked with everything we would need. It worked well as an operating base to see the rest of Scotland as well. We drove a great deal of the British Isle and kirkmichael served as a great place to do that. We are also some of the only guests to have stayed in the cottage from the United States so if you're in the states and you're thinking about taking a vacation to Scotland, be sure to give this location a shot. Cloncaird Castle is also really beautiful and walking the grounds is a peaceful and relaxing experience.

The only reason we would not book again is we felt we saw most places around in the week we had.. The cottage was perfect in every way
