Cargen Cottage, ideal base for exploring Dumfries and Galloway.
The cottage is well proportioned for 2 people, clean and well presented, tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits on arrival. Anna B and Joanne very helpful but not intrusive.
Loved our stay, second time we have stayed there.

Not happy with our 3 night stay. First night mouse seen running under the bed & mouse droppings in pyrex dish and behind cooker. Mouse trap had to be set and no sleep until mouse caught at 2.15am. Set trap again and another mouse caught 4.45am the next morning. Not much sleep the 3 nights and was so glad to get home. Ruined our holiday!Refund would be appreciated.
Great wee cottage, small but perfectly formed. It ticked all our wants, was clean, bright and warm, the host left essentials that were greatly appreciated after a long journey. We have family in Dumfries and felt the location was perfect for visiting and popping in and out of the town. Would definitely stay again and recommend this place.
Work oriented but every thing you would need for a lovely serene holiday in a gorgeous cottage and weather great as well lovely day today sun shining but even when snowing or raining you are pretty much in a natural setting views fantastic as well.This is week 1 of 4.Highly recommended****
A very comfortable cottage, well-equipped and peaceful.
I had a great week here, using the cottage as my base for mountain-biking at the 7 Stanes centres. It was always lovely to return here to do my laundry, prepare a nice meal and to relax. The cottage was warm and comfortable with everything I needed. The shower comes off a combi-boiler so has a good pressure and hot. The heating is from an A/C unit which warms the place up very quickly when required. The bed is comfy, too. The wi-fi was excellent (I ran my own Chromecast on the TV) and the nearby road mentioned by other reviewers was certainly not an issue (and made travelling by car very convenient); the cottage isn't actually ON the main road, of course!
Anna was very friendly and welcoming; although I found nothing to be missing and had no problems with the cottage, I'm sure she would have been able to help very quickly.
