“Delivered peace”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2017

Peace and quiet away from it all is what i wanted and what i got. Cottage was lovely and neighbours very friendly. Only thing that could have made it 5 stars was a wee welcome pack on arrival, usually find these nice touch.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your suggestion, a welcome pack is something we are looking to offer in the future

“A Few Days in Creetown”

Reviewed 18 May 2017

A very cosy well equipped cottage in a quiet area of Dumfries and Galloway. The cottage has everything you need for your stay including WiFi which worked well. The walk from the cottage into Balloch Wood around well made paths were great.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay Regards Alice

“Little Gem”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2016

Excellent little cottage, everything you need for self catering. We used as a base for exploring around Galloway. Dogs welcome. My only disappointment was that the WiFi was temperamental and kept on going off, not very good when the phone signal in the village isn't very good No coffee or sugar on arrival - just a box of tea bags. Needed a coffee after the long journey, we had already been to the shop for milk as we were aware that we needed to get that.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you had problems with the Internet. Unfortunately there was a problem with Bt Internet that week that affected the whole of Creetown and Newton Stewert. I know how frustrating this must have been but it's very rare and was unfortunately out of ours hands on this occasion. BT assured me the problem was rectified within 36 hours. As for coffee I am so sorry that you expected this on arrival. We only supply tea bags as we found no body was drinking the coffee so it was going stale I will update my information on this right away. I hope these issues didn't stop you from having a lovely day and we look forward to maybe welcoming you back one day.

“Comfortable cottage in a lovely spot”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2016

The cottage is modern, well equipped and thoughtfully presented. Creetown is a lovely community with a lot of pride. There's a small museum packed with pictures and scenes from the past, the Gem Rock Museum on the hill with a fabulous cafe open 7 days a week and for the mountain bikers amongst us a disused railway taking you the 4.5 miles to Kirroughtree. Wigtown has craft shops and 20ish bookshops and there are mills, castles and beaches galore. This is the perfect spot to explore from, and for a couple you won't find better than 1 Crispin Court, it's really made our stay special. Would definitely recommend the cottage and we will definitely stay again.

“A light, airy, modern and comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2016

It was very quick and easy to book this property. Lots of detail and instructions were emailed to me so nothing could go wrong and I had a contact email and phone number in case of any problems. The cottage is lovely and very well equipped including Sky TV, a washing machine and tumble dryer. Having an extra downstairs toilet is useful too. Parking is right next to the cottage. The only minor things missing are a drying rack to put the towels etc outside to dry, and an ironing board. Creetown is a sleepy little town; the character grows on you in a few days and is a good base for visiting nearby attractions. There are local walks too, just 5 minutes away up above the church is the Balloch Wood stone circle, not to be missed. It was my favourite evening walk. There are 2 museums in the town, one round the corner and a Gem Rock Museum with a fantastic collection of crystals, agates and fossils etc, giving an excellent afternoon out. Loved it there for a week's holiday. I llked the beautiful kitchen best, also the nice big bathroom with a really good shower. There wasn't anything I didn't like but the stairs have a turn in them half way up and might be tricky for the elderly or disabled.

Reviewed 27 Jun 2016

We stayed here with our 2 Beagles, the property is very well maintained and fully equipped with everything you would need including lots of local maps and walks in the local area, even some books and dvd's. There is plenty to do in the local area and a large wood with a few walking paths just outside the door, ideal for walking dogs.

“Restful holiday”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2012

Quiet location but accessible to larger towns by car. Local shop offers all you need if you don't want to leave the area. Carparking at the door.

“Good location for exploring”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2012

We had a great time at Crispin Court-the cottage was very clean & comfortable, in a quiet location & had everything we needed. There are 2 local shops, a butchers (who have amazing sausages & haggis, so if it's your thing then do try them!). The Barholm Arms has closed down & it only leaves a watering hole at the hotel.We discovered the Laird Inn which was actually in the caravan park (signposted just before the turn-off from the A75 for Creetown).Easily walkable from the cottage (10mins) & does fantastic meals. Check out Mossyard beach,Brighouse Bay, Isle of Whithorn, Mull of Galloway, Glen & Loch Trool & the view from Murrays Monument.We had great weather & brought home happy memories.
