Spotlessly clean, beautifully presented, this cottage is a real credit to its owners Bill & Patsy.. The high quality of all the furnishings, fitments and fixtures elevates it way above any of the many other rental cottages we have ever stayed in. Its warm, quiet, everything feel solid and the views are terrific. The owners are next door for questions and help if required, but allow one privacy, the perfect hosts!
By nature I am picky and can generally find things that trouble me at these rental cottages but in this instance apart from a couple of minor nit-picks too trivial to mention, I am at a loss to come up with anything negative about the cottage that I feel I should warn others about.
We really enjoyed coming back to the cottage after a day's touring and walking, so much so we preferred to cook and "chill out" that eat at pubs and restaurants.
The sun sets on the Scotland side of the Solway Firth so every evening one is treated to a display of colour, as a landscape photographer I really apprecaited that!
I guess my only area of slight dissapointment was not about the cottage at all but just how little there really is to do in the area. We found ourselves travelling to the Lake District every day and its quite a journey taking 1.5 hours or longer. Of course we knew that when we booked I just found the Solway Firth a tad boring, we didnt see a single boat or any activity all week, and its quite a monotonous beach to walk. What I am trying to say is if you are happy at this location then the cottage is absolutely perfect, but if your main interest is in the Lake District it might be a bit far from the "action".
Overall this is a 5 star property. Lovely views, terrific interior and exterior and above all it has that intangible sense of feeling at home and comfortable.
