Fabulous cottage with everything catered for. Will miss the bird song, it was so entertaining. Lovely week, weather a bit "dreich".Excellent meals had in Royal Hotel, Cumnock and the Waterside, West Kilbride. Dumfries House well worth a visit. Thank you for the week in your wonderful accommodation. Robin and June Mays,  West Wales. 4-11/05/14

Thank you Jean and Peter from the bottom of our collective hearts for a wonderful relaxing 2 weeks! You made us feel welcome and well looked after. The cottage was bright, airy and nicely equipped. This gem is very well maintained and you folks have a knack for allowing your guests privacy,  but make yourselves available if needed. We are sad to leave this slice of heaven!  Pat and Russ Norman, Bethany, CT, USA. 11-26/05/14

You thought of everything for a wonderful stay including the weather. Thank you. Margaret and Elizabeth.  Scotland.  15-22/06/14

We all had a lovely time and was short of nothing here. .. Great place.  The children especially loved the huge outside space and the "fizzy bath". Steven, Michelle, Charlie and Josh Allwood. 17-24/08/14

Fantastic cottage, everything you would need catered for, fully equipped, beautiful both inside and out.  We have had a great week, the cottage is the perfect base to explore Ayrshire and the surrounding area. Culzean Castle is lovely, we have also visited Isle of Arran (get the early ferry), Cumbrae, Glasgow and some fantastic beaches. The weather has been fantastic, we couldn't have chosen better. We have loved Nith Cottage and hope we get the chance to come and stay again, we will be recommending it to our family and friends. Many thanks. Clive, Mel, Emily and Jack.  Stockton, Cleveland.  24-31/08/14

Our first visit to Nith Cottage after being recommended by our friends Matt and Kirsty.  We walked, fished, played golf and cycled, we even found time to relax in this beautiful cottage.

Our fourth Christmas here in Nith Cottage, and once again we have had a wonderful time.  Thank you Jean and Peter, as always for the beautiful, warm and cosy accommodation.  It's a stunningly beautiful frosty morning as we leave, and we really don't want to say goodbye! Hopefully it won't be too long before we return!  The Swallow family, Bembridge, Isle of Wight.  21-28/12/14

We were welcomed warmly on arrival, and from that moment on our stay was everything we hoped for. Nith cottage is very well laid out, thoroughly organised, warm and quiet.  We enjoyed walks around the farm, Loch Doon, Culzean and the Ayrshire coastline, as well as a couple of days here fishing for grayling and painting the winter scenery.  Thank you Jean and Peter.  Jan and John Harrison.  Northumberland.  28/12-04/01/15
