Gamepark cottage is a wonderfully comfortable sparkling clean place to relax, fabulous gardens and views, all the facilities you could need for your stay, lots of lovely walks in close proximity and the town is a short convenient drive away, would definitely recommend and can’t wait to come back again soon..

We had a wonderful holiday, the only things i would like to say is the burns in the bottom of the bath, had we bathed and not showered, and we found the beds uncomfortable, but other than that the cottage was beautiful..

The property was immaculately presented and very well equipped.. Fantastic space in the garden and very secure for pets. The sight of red kites overhead everyday was wonderful. The location is ideal to explore the area. Castle Douglas is just down the road and has everything you need to accommodate your stay. We would suggest the owners trim the wardrobe base in the master bedroom, it protrudes into the walkway to the bed and we found it to be a trip hazard. A minor gripe but in no way detracting from a lovely cottage.

Lovely comfortable cottage in glorious countryside.. If you want to get away from it all this is the place. If you are into bird watching there is Red Kite feeding station just down the road.

THE place to go if you want to see Red Kites! As soon as we drove through the gates they were circling above! The cottage was clean, well equipped and comfortable and the garden was huge with open land all around with plenty of wildlife to spot. A lovely, quiet area of Scotland with lots of forests and lochs to explore and nearby Castle Douglas with plenty of shops and good food.

An ideal cottage for family holiday or just to relax take in the wild life or just use for a base for a walking holiday..

Another great week at this beautiful cottage.. Location is superb and the property is excellent if you have dogs. Only thing I’d suggest is that as the property doesn’t have a washer dryer, that there is a clothes horse available to help with drying clothes, as we can’t depend on hanging the washing outside. Pegs for hanging wet jackets/waterproofs in outside porch or at back door would be Ideal. I know there are pegs for coats in the utilities room with the washing machine but we never use that door as the drive is at opposite side of house. These are only small suggestions which would make a bidg difference when the weather isn’t so kind and would help prevent wet dirty clothes being carried through the house. Other than that we can’t fault the place or the owners who obviously take great care of this lovely cottage. We’ve been 3 times now and will be back for another stay

This Cottage exceeded all expectations as far as cleanliness and the facilities available to us.. The Cottage is situated in a lovely area with lots of places to visit.Very handy for the Red Kite station which is certainly worth a visit.

Lovely Cottage, excellent grounds.. we thoroughly enjoyed it and would have no hesitation recommending it. We have been to four other locations in the past this was far the best.

The area and general condition of the property was excellent, The very large garden area was brilliant and safe for our children to run around in and I would recommend this property to anyone for this reason.

The cottage was to a very high standard, it was very clean and the views that surrounded the cottage were breath taking. The owners were really accommodating. I would high recommend this cottage to anyone and I will be booking again.

It was warm, very clean and very comfortable. It is in a lovely area of the country and was a pleasure to return to after a long day walking.

We both agree that this is the best property we had stayed in. The bungalow was in an ideal position for the type of holiday we take. The garden was very safely fenced and gated and our dog had the time of his life so it was a holiday for him as well.

This cottage is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and in such a wonderful location. The cottage itself is very well equipped and deceptively spacious with the twin room having amazing views out over the garden and to the woods. We were so impressed and happy with our stay that we will be looking at whether we can book again next year and will be recommending this place to anyone who will listen!

This cottage is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and in such a wonderful location. We watched the numerous spectacular Red Kite flying overhead every day and your standard garden/woodland birds like a friendly robin and chaffinches were also regular visitors. The cottage itself is very well equipped and deceptively spacious with the twin room having amazing views out over the garden and to the woods. There were a couple of issues during our stay (e.g. previous visitors reported broken washing machine on leaving) but the owners were so quick to fix any issues that the washing machine was replaced within an hour and a half of our arrival. The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly, even down to the little box of chocolates, tea, coffee and jug of milk we found when we arrived. We were so impressed and happy with our stay that we will be looking at whether we can book again next year and will be recommending this place to anyone who will listen!

The bungalow is great -spotlessly clean well decorated & maintained, with all equipment you could need.The large, private outdoor space is good for seeing wildlife including deer, red kites & bats.The summerhouse is a bonus.Wonderful night skies here (weather permitting!) Lots to do in the area, Galloway forest park, lots of castles & ruins,pretty small towns & the solway firth coast. A car is a must, & there was no mobile reception ( a plus in my view !) Recommended.
