"Brilliant scenery and peacefulness, wide range of places to go.   Borgue's local pub is great and dog friendly great value and friendly owners.   Kirkcudbright is brilliant for morning and evening walks which were very relaxing, our collie "Bolt" loved the area and wildlife.   All in all the Coachman's is an outstanding place to stay and perfect for a city/town get away.   Absolutely loved it!   Thank you!!!  Will come back soon."   July 2013 Mrs D. from Hampshire

Chapelton Coachman's Cottage Reviews

5 star review

Stunning scenery all round the area, cosy, well looked after cottage. What else do you need ? Well, maybe a bit more sun and less rain but we won't hold that against you lol
Thanks for the great review, South Scotland is sometimes over looked but it is a fabulous area and it is good to hear that you like it so much, hope to see you back again before too long

4 star review

The cottage was lovely.It was immaculately clean ,spacious and comfortable.It was quiet and peaceful and although the caretakers were very close by they never bothered us at all.The only thing that stopped it from being perfect was the lack of any wifi or mobile signal which felt a bit isolated.
Great review nad the caretakers do like to help if needed.  Wifi and mobile signals are a common probelm in many areas but we are trying to lobby for improvements

2 star review

Cottage was fairly clean and well equipped but some areas were not clean and some items usually found in holiday cottages were missing. Area lovely but cottage itself was not in the greatest location and directions to it were poor with a rough access track I wouldn't want to attempt in a really nice car.
Thank you for taking time to leave your feedback.  We will review the travel directioisn to make sure that they are easy to follow, the track will be inspected to make sure that any potholes are repaired but when we were there earlier this year it appeared in good condition and suitable even for small salon cars.  We do hope that you still enjoyed your holiday despite these items.
