Boot Cottage is a hideaway in the small village of Kirkinner in the Machar region of outstanding natural beauty in Dumfries and Galloway. From the front door parking area you step over the threshold into a large open-plan sitting, dining and kitchen area and through to the garden with its own decking and seating area great for a sundowner or a Bar-B-Q. Stairs lead up to the large bedroom with King Sized 1000 spring bed. The ground floor bathroom has a walk in shower.

The space

Although from the outside it may look small, the cottage is deceptively roomy inside. There is a Feeeview tv with attached blu-ray player, a washer/dryer, full oven and hob as well as a microwave, and all tastefully furnished and decorated.

William and Karen are very hospitable guests you have paid attention to detail and thought of everything to make staying at Boot Cottage comfortable and enjoyable. William kindly met us at the cottage and gave us a tour of the cottage and it's facilities. He had left us some bread, jam, butter, water and milk which is fab and there was also tea, coffee and sugar in the cupboard. I have stayed in a few places through Airbnb this year and this cottage had by far the most well equipped kitchen! Everything throughout the cottage seemed brand new and very clean. The bed is super comfortable - makes for a great night's sleep! Overall we had a lovely stay at Boot Cottage and only wish it had been longer!

The house was just as we expected it to be. i.e small and compact. Clean and with all the mod cons. Almost as if we were the first to use the place.And William thought of everything.(Coffee, tea, Milk, Sugar - soap towels ) The bedroom was well appointed (large with a large bed) and comfortable. It was on the first floor with stairs a little steep for me . William has done his best to make our stay at the BOOT Cottage as pleasant as possible.

Boot Cottage is located just outside Wigtown and so was perfect for visiting the Book Festival. It is a beautifully renovated cottage and has everything we needed for a perfect stay. The bed was comfortable and we appreciated the bread, milk, butter and jam! Wifi works very well. William and Karen have made sure that everything is on hand for the best stay possible. We would definitely recommend Boot Cottage.

We only stayed a few nights it was lovely. I wished we could have stayed longer. Beautiful cottage and surprisingly spacious. It was perfect for myself, my partner and our dog. Our dog settled well there and William was kind enough to provide dog bowls and a dog bed that poppy loved. Great place for country walks with the dog. We felt very welcome. It has full kitchen and laundry facilities which was perfect. A very modern and stylish stay nestled in a gorgeous quiet part of the country. William also provided bread, butter, milk, tea coffee etc too, to start us off which was a lovely touch. Very impressed and would book again, but next time it will definitely be for longer.
