“Well equipped bungalow in a good location”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2019

Nice detached bungalow great for all amenities and trips around D & G. Very well equipped home from home and in a great location however A few small issues below: Bath panel has watermarks all over it so has been leaking / is leaking; Bathroom storage has gone rusty with being metal and through condensation so does need changing; Shower over bath has a screen and has not been cleaned for some time as black around edges, also rather dusty; Lounge could do with a roller blind at the large window and so could conservatory for privacy; Could not get gas stove in lounge to work despite instructions however was warm enough with radiators; Tap in kitchen has a constant drip; Kitchen door plain toughened glass but no frosted strip to show when closed which can be off putting when closed and when entering from lounge. All in all we had a good trip and as said previously a well equipped bungalow.

Owner's reply: I am glad you had a good stay. Various repairs are due to be done in the next month notably the bath panel and storage racks. The shower screen is cleaned after every holiday stay however the seal is due to be replaced. Sheila & Steve are always happy to show guests how to operate appliances if needed. The gas stove works well but the lighting operation needs to be done slowly as per the instructions.

“Wonderfully relaxing and comfortable stay”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2017

We had a really lovely, comfortable stay at the bungalow. It's surprisingly spacious and exceptionally well thought out- really functional and practical with all the home comforts you need. The town is really nice and there's plenty to do in the local area. The house provides a great base for exploring and is always cosy and warm to come back to. The river views were a bonus. The locals were friendly and the little cinema in town and the Cree Bridge House hotel are worth a visit during your stay. The only improvement that could have been made for our stay is that I would have liked to have had a key to lock the internal door leading to the garage. Although I was probably being too security conscious, I was a little uneasy going to bed some nights...wondering who else knows the code for the garage door. All in all, a really lovely stay and I would 100% recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely comments. A note on the garage - it is entirely secure as the rest of the house is - The internal door does not have a key as it is considered to be the fire escape route including for a wheelchair. The visitor key code is changed to maintain security.

“Tigh Na Cree , spacious bungalow for a Galloway Get a Way”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2017

Tigh Na Cree is a spacious three bedded bungalow in the Minnigaff district of Newton Stewart. It is very close to the River Cree and the small town of Newton Stewart. We visited the area to 'do' some hills ( Donalds ). The Galloway Forest Park offers a wide variety of walks and hikes. Check what is available from Park Ranger Service. As this is Scotland , we had a mixed bag of weather. Early morning 'runs' turned to tough mudders! We took advantage of washing machine , tumble drier and clothes pulley ( bring your own unguents). Accessing the house via the garage , allowed us to disrobe and hang all out wet gear on the pulley. Note the booking conditions- i e bring all your own towels ( hand , tea, dish , bath). Also this property allows one pet to stay. This may - not suit your preferences. We have visited Galloway on several times. There are plenty of places to visit and things to do ! Enjoy your stay , we did.

Owner's reply: I am glad you have enjoyed your time in Galloway

“Very comfortable place to stay”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2017

The house is a very comfortable place to stay and a good base for travelling around the Dumfries and Galloway area. The facilities in the house are excellent and include good wi-fi connection. The conservatory at the front was a lovely place to relax in the evening after our travels around the area . Good size bedrooms and a very well equipped kitchen made it just right for our party of 4 adults with plenty of room at the front for parking our two cars without the need for using the enormous garage. There are many good gardens to visit within the area , including the Logan Botanic gardens, Castle Kennedy and best of all the Glenwhan gardens, and you are not too far from the Mull of Galloway and the Isle of Whithorn. The town of Newton Stewart itself has two large supermarkets and a number of smaller shops that covered all our needs in the week. Highly recommended.

Owner's reply: I am glad you have enyoyed your stay

“Idyllic view all you could wish for exeptionally well equiped”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2017

Had a great time went into the hills saw wild goats, fed dear and saw about 70 red kites at the feeding station. Scenery in this area was amazing. Was told there was otters in the river but didn't see these. but did have red dear in front of the cottage on the Friday evening. Hope to have the chance to book again for next year.

Owner's reply: I am glad you had a good time. Thank you for a lovely review.

Newton Stewart is a small country town with all the facilities you could possibly need the bungalow is situated on the Riverside. A short walk takes you over a bridge to the town. The q asuality of the bungalow was of a very good standard and I would not hesitate to stay there again

Owner's reply: It is nice to know guests have enjoyed their stay

“Tigh Na Cree is a lovely comfortable place to stay with every amenity.”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2014

After a 32 hour flight and 2 hour drive, Tigh na Cree was a welcome sanctuary. Clean and very comfortable, it had every amenity you could want. The house was warm and cosy, with the best equipped kitchen. Located close to the town centre, shops, pubs, etc and a great view of the Cree River. We thoroughly recommend Tigh na Cree as a great place to stay and would love to go back again and spend more time there.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the lovely comments
