The Byre is a great family cottage with 3 good size bedrooms and a lovely spacious kitchen with modern fitted units and all the appliances you need.. Loads of space for all the holiday gear and a secure lockable bike store. Great location for cycling and golf and walks in nearby Glen Trool. Would definitely visit again

On arrival we were met by Carol who showed us around and told us what we needed to know about the property.. There were some minor issues but not enough to spoil our break which we enjoyed very much. We let Carol, the owner/manager, know what we thought needed attention and these were corrected before the arrival of the next guests.

Spacious but cosy cottage with friendly owner, great views over the Cree estuary, and a lovely walking area behind the cottage..

The Byre is a fantastic holiday cottage with a nice layout and all you need to have a great break away from home.. It is located very close to Newton Stewart, and there is a lovely bicycle path that allows you to walk or cycle right into the heart of the town without having to worry about traffic, which is great for small kids. The Byre also has fantastic views over the Cree estuary and Cairsnmore of Fleet, and with Galloway also being a Dark Sky park its great for photography too.

Nether Barr Steading was a lovely country location for our holiday.. The cottages are really spacious and well equipped. The view over the river meander is a beautiful outlook. Carol was a fantastic host and our kids enjoyed playing with hers.
