Self-Catering Reviews

February 2020
This is the most beautiful, comfortable cosy cottage I have stayed at. The pictures online do not give it justice. The cottage is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. You can see the river by sitting on the single chair by the window. You can see the trees and fields on the other side of the river by sitting on the big sofa. The best view of the river is if you sit on the window sills. There is a laundry room which is lovely and warm, brilliant to dry clothes after a muddy rainy walk.Stayed here during Storm Ciara. The river was almost bursting its banks and the sound was lovely to sit and listen to. There is no wifi but I was able to switch the hotspot on my phone on and connect it to the smart tv so we were able to watch Netflix and catchup without any buffering. I am on Vodafone. Few things I would change if I could - - Add an outside light by the river and a table. - Close the entrance area from the car park area to the bedroom and have it closer to the wheel so the french doors can be left open on a nice day giving some privacy from the road directly to the bedroom. - Put some comfy cushions on the windowsills so sitting there is more comfortable. - Shut off the garden by the river with a little fence so its secure for the dog. My favourite days were a drive along dalveen pass and mennock pass. It took almost a full day but so beautiful, worth every second. And secondly, a walk along balcery bay, on the cliffs. Beautiful views across the solway to england and isle of man. A little mention about the bed, which by the way is lovely to sleep on, the sheets are really good quality and having an electric bed is fun!! Lovely to be able to raise the bed up and sit up with a cup of tea. The only thing is though, because it's two single beds attached together it's not the most comfortable for any romance, if that makes sense lol I rarely give full marks for a cottage but I cant not for this one, I could stay there forever.

Cottage, fantastic.. Location, tranquil. Parking, easy. A brilliant place for a relaxing week with just the sound of the river & the birds to accompany your morning coffee.

This fabulous cottage contains everything you will need for a short stay. The view from the lounge windows of the River Urr is beautiful. Birds swoop the river and fly around. The cottage is warm and comfortable and not far from Dumfries and Castle Douglas. Three levels, but not difficult steps, it is furnished thoughtfully. I would come and stay again if ever in Scotland. Just perfect. Thanks for letting us share your home.

Superbly refurbished property with top quality fixtures and fittings in an idyllic location.. Ideally positioned for discovering the beauty of Dumfries and Galloway. Wonderful birdlife and wildlife in the immediate vicinity of this lovely property. Excellent communications from an exceptionally friendly and helpful owner. Could not fault nor recommend highly enough. Will definitely look to stay again in the future.

Old Sawmill Cottage is beautiful.. The restoration has been completed with care and attention to detail. The view of River Urr from the Cottage's windows is magnificent. Birds fly close by. I believe otters are in the river, but we didn't see them. Everything you would need is here in this cottage. Situated in a quiet, out of the way small location with a few cottages, it is so peaceful and beautiful that the world doesn't intrude and it is possible to mentally recharge. I highly recommend this wonderful accommodation and if I could win the lottery and get my dog to come with me from Australia, I would buy this property and live here. Thank you for sharing.

This is a beautiful cottage in a unique setting.. It was comfortable and very warm and cosy. We were glad to have the log burner during a four hour power cut due to hurricane Ali and remained snug and safe! There is no wi-fi in the cottage or phone signal, so if this is important to you, you might need to consider this. On the plus side the bed is amazing, electric and probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in.

Fabulous cottage in a beautiful location.. The owners have done a fantastic job in renovating such an old and unique building. So much to do and see in area - beautiful beaches and so unspoiled.

The cottage was light, airy and well.. Presented. The location was perfect , right next to the riverbank with easy access to the surrounding towns. A perfect place for a relaxing holiday and for exploring the surrounding area. Will definitely stay there again. The owner lives next door and was very helpful and friendly.

We have to say that this property displays wonderful quality internally (whoever originally renovated this property had exceptional ideas and standards) and it's location is quite idyllic - the only suggestion we would have for improvement is the grass bank area beside the river.. Watching the wildlife activity on the river from here is absorbing - particularly the Dippers and the Heron! We would certainly use this property again!

The cottage was ideal for a relaxing break & there was a woodburner fire if required as well as the central heating.. Never before have we had adjustable beds in a holiday cottage & they were so comfortable, & the whole place was tastefully decorated. Just watching the river as well as the wildlife from the windows was just so relaxing & the weather was quite reasonable also, which allowed us to explore some of the surrounding area. There were plenty leaflets & information about things to do & places to visit. The whole experience was really enjoyable, considering we booked at such a late stage. Booked on the Friday & there on the Monday. I would recommend the cottage for any couple but would say it's not really suitable for young children due to the closeness of the river & there are no railings or gates to stop them getting down the side of the cottage to the river. Another fascinating item to look at through a locked glass door is the old watermill at the side of the cottage & it can be lit up at night while sitting enjoying the peace & quiet. The owner was extremely helpful & we could contact him by telephone if there were any problems & was pleased to hear we had enjoyed our stay when he came to chat to us before we left.

We really enjoyed our stay.. It is extremely comfor table and the views of the river were really relaxing. We enjoyed watching the birds up and down the river and nearby Castle Douglas had everything we needed locally. We'll definitely return again.

The Old Saw Mill cottage ticks every box.. The owners have thought of everything to make a comfortable and enjoyable stay. A lovely setting by the river provided lot of opportunity to look at the wildlife and a short drive takes you to Castle Douglas. A great base to explore this part of Scotland. We are looking forward to coming back.

Fantastic cottage with first class facilities and furnishings.. The owners are very attentive and friendly, greeted on arrival with a warm welcome. The waterwheel is a lovely feature as is listening to the flowing river. Plenty to do in the surrounding area, Castle Douglas is nice with lots of shops and food outlets. We fully recommend this accommodation. Unfortunately we had to leave hastily one day early due to family illness, all ended well though!

The Old Sawmill cottage is beautifully presented, kitted out to a very high standard, warm and cosy, and made for a very relaxing break.. The owners were there to greet us and show us around, and were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
