We had a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage. Thank you for welcome pack. Had lovely walks along the beach to Rigg Bay... Loved bird watching and also got to sunbath in the garden... We really enjoyed our time here. So sad to leave must mean we had a great time L & D Aug-2017

Welcome to The Spinney Holiday Cottage, Garlieston

The Spinney is your ideal choice for holiday accommodation sleeping 4, in the Machars, Dumfries and Galloway.

The Spinney offers you freedom, space and seaside accommodation at Garlieston. In much earlier times Garlieston Harbour would have been a thriving hive of activity as it traded its rope and sailcloth for tea and lace and coal from abroad. Our pet friendly holiday cottage, with its wood burning stove, and private garden is just perfect for barbeques as it catches the evening sun. It is ideally situated for exploring the Machars, and the wider Galloway region and the Scottish Borders. It's only a short journey from the quaint local villages of the Isle of Whithorn, Wigtown, the larger historic town of Newton Stewart and beyond.

  • The best equipped cottage I have stayed in You seem to have anticipated and provided for every eventuality. Much more spacious than I anticipated. Lovely garden. Pity the weather did not allow much else but Dougal the dog loved it. Great to have a secure garden...There is so much to see and do eat & drink in the area. A smashing holiday. L. & D. Sept-2017
  • Not too lucky with the weather this visit but managed to do many a long and squelchy walk with Jess again in Collie heaven. A visit to Culzean Castle on a wet day was very interesting. Can also recommend visits to Newton Stewart swimming pool and also the Ryan centre at Stranraer. We were thrilled to see an Egret at RSPB Crook off Baldoon reserve. As always the cottage is comfortable and warm and wonderfully equipped. We appreciated the secure garden for Jess. Many thanks for the welcome hamper and for a relaxing week. L B & J Sept-2017
  • Mum and Dad have stayed at Trostrie many times so thought it would be nice to bring the family to scotland and to The Spinney. Wow what a wonderfully appointed cottage great spot with everything you could hope for. We visited lots of places but Ardwell Bay was a firm favourite with a lovely beach where we paddled in the sunshine. We even BBQ´d one evening and it was fab. We hope to return here again soon. Thank you for a lovely holiday. H. C. E. G. & R. Sept-2017
  • I brought my family to a place that is very dear to me ,I was worried it might not be as wonderful as it has been for me since I first came here as a little boy ,my grandparents and parents have lived here on and off for most of their lives, to share the magic has been fantastic. The Spinney is truly a home from home ,the attention to detail in providing this is something to be very proud of ,from booking to arrival the communication has been spot on, and once the door is open you are able to relax, unwind and immerse yourself in this unique part of the world .The cottage is very beautiful,the garden is wonderful with so many birds and butterflies.We like to cook and we did, everything on hand and a dishwasher!! Fantastic when you want to get back to your holiday. Beds are very comfortable ,showers powerful and hot, living room cosy, especially with the stove on. Books for bedtime, conservatory to while away a showery day relaxing. All in all the perfect place, thank you guys from Me and my Family You two have obviously put a lot of time and thought into the Spinney and it really shows, it´s the little things that always count, your attention to detail screams quietly out, relax enjoy unwind! And we did! D Aug-2017

Too many thoughtful, useful items to enumerate but all appreciated.
