“Spacious, beautiful, friendly - the most relaxed weekend ever!”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2019

We arrived at the cottage on Friday evening and the location was excellent. Having The Tackroom made all the difference to mine and my partners overall experience - it was beautiful, spacious and private - just what we needed. Although rural, we weren't far from the town of Annan. A small town but it had everything that was needed to make the stay convenient. The cottage itself was amazing. We wanted for nothing and Margaret greeted us within the first hour of arriving. A complimentary basket was left which was a nice touch and we wanted for nothing during the entire stay. Whether ordering a takeaway or cooking for ourselves, there was always something available for the 3 nights that we stayed there. Then there was the hot tub - we spent all 3 night in there and although the wind was howling, the privacy of the rear of the Tackroom, overlooking fields and a stream, was completely protected from the wind, making the hot tub an amazing and enjoyable experience every night we were there. We didn't have the opportunity to use the barbeque but that would have been an excellent feature for warmer weather. There are plenty of walks and landmarks to see within a short driving distance so we never wanted for anything to do - although the best part of the weekend was the relaxation we were able to do. On a night, crawling into the comfy warm bed with the comfort of the entire cottage protecting you from the cold outside was a welcome experience and made for an excellent nights sleep. If I could make any recommendations, they would be small ones. Checking out at 10am made for a rushed end to a relaxing weekend and I would have liked to check out later. To be honest, I didn't speak to Margaret about this although I wish I had as it may have been an option. The technology geek inside me would have liked a larger TV in the living room to complement the entire room for a lazy Sunday afternoon watching TV - but that's just me. Thank you Margaret and Robert for a lovely weekend. I'm sure we'll be back in the future

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review. We would gladly give a later check out if at all possible. So glad you enjoyed your weekend and would love to welcome you both back - anytime.

Just returned from a short break in the Tackroom. What a beautiful cottage, decor and furniture of a high standard, underfloor hearing brilliant. Lots of little extras, welcome hamper, basics in cupboards etc, makes such a difference. Hot tub wonderful and very private. Lovely cottage for a nice peaceful, relaxing break. Annan just a 25 minute walk away with several riverside walks. Margaret a pleasure to deal with, would highly recommend. Would recommend the Lonsdale cinema in Annan and the distillery coffee shop.

Owner's reply: Hi Claire Sorry that you are so upset with our summer booking policy, and that we could not accommodate your requested dates (for July 18). You requested a mid week arrival with a Sunday departure. Unfortunately, it does not work in the height of summer to do this, so we have Mon. & Fri. arrivals to try and accommodate most guests.(we do try to be very flexible in low season). Re your comment about Trip Advisor taking a deposit - I am sure, if you double check, this will not be the case, as we are a 'Request to Book' property and we declined your request (explaining our weekend booking policy). Sorry we could not help with your request on this occasion and that you find suitable accommodation for your trip in July 18. Margaret Distillery Holiday Cottages
