From the moment you walk in (after being greeted by your charming and attentive hosts) you feel that you are somewhere very special. The owners have created the perfect holiday retreat. From the top quality fixtures and fittings, to the beautiful and sympathetic artwork on the walls, and then THAT VIEW! Spotlessly clean throughout, and wonderfully comfortable beds. With two great places to eat out only a few minutes walk away, we could not have wished for any more. We were very sad to leave after our far too short stay, and will certainly be returning for a proper holiday in the very near future.
This is the perfect holiday cottage. It is well balanced between feeling like you have all the comforts and necessities of home, yet is immaculate and stylish like a holiday cottage should be. The view from the big front windows is guaranteed to wash stress away. David is a wonderful host, welcoming with plenty of information about the area. He left a couple little edible gifts for us in the fridge, which were delicious and much appreciated! We had the perfect short holiday at Shorepark, and we're already looking to book our next stay in the off-season when we can spend days by the fire looking out over the Nith, watching the birds, cows, deer, and the amazing tidal Bore.
Upon arrival David was a complete gentleman helping elderly in laws from the car to the house and then once settled he helped with the bags.
The house is AMAZING .......gazing out at the .gorgeous panoramic view of the outside world with smiles on our faces, knowing we had that view for the next 4 days.Pure joy!
Luxurious bedding/ towels and well equipped kitchen I was in heaven.
Oh, and the underfloor heating,how nice to walk with bare feet in the morning to sit with a cuppa and watch the supersized nature tv from the lounge.
The Sensor lights in the hallway are a nice touch.
Great location for exploring ......we will be back.
The boathouse across the road has excellent bacon sandwiches , gluten free available too and highly recommend mussels at Steamboat inn.
My family are just back from 5 days at this cottage. OMG I can't praise it highly enough. Everything about it was amazing..the cottage...the gardens....the views....the location. Doesn't matter if you are 7 years old or 77 years old - you will love this immaculate cottage. My 7 year niece ran through to the living room every night just before 10 so she could see the breathtaking sunsets.The cottage is decorated with impeccable taste and has everything you would need and I do mean everything. Dave and Cath are lovely and can't help you enough. They had milk and wine waiting for us in the fridge....there are games for the kids...books...magazines. I would recommend this cottage for anyone - families, couples, girlie weekends... just amazing. Seriously if you fancy a few nights away this is the place to be! Lovely wee hotel (The Nith Hotel) at the end of the street -great food - lovely staff. Dave, Cath thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. We will be back!!!!
