Guests Comments:

"We booked two adjoining apartments which were perfect for our group of 5 couples for a long weekend.
There was a lovely welcome basket with essentials plus a lovely bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. We were very comfortable and the log burner added to the relaxing ambience on a cold November night. We had everything in the kitchen that we needed for rustling up a Sunday dinner for 10 with plenty extra crockery, cutlery, and glasses.
This was our 2nd visit and I'm sure we will all return in the future."

"We can't recommend this accommodation highly enough. Accommodation completed to a very high specification, very clean and friendly welcome. Well worthy of its 5 star rating. This is by far the best accommodation we have stayed at with our little dog in the UK. Ralph and Evelyn were very helpful and always had time to chat even although they seemed very busy. We are already planning another visit next year."

"Fantastic accommodation with n beautiful surroundings. Great communication with owner. Would definitely recommend."

"We were travelling from Canada and used Sandford Cottages as out home base for four days while we explored the East Neil. Evelyn and Ralph are quintessential hosts. Lady Bluebell was spacious and quiet, clean and welcoming (including a basket of essentials). It was fascinating to tour the house and understand the renovations over the years. We were accompanied by my guide dog and he met all the local Pups. We highly recommend this wonderfully appointed setting!"
