One of the most outstanding rentals that we have been in, everything is 5 star, from the décor, items in the house and help from the people that own it! The rental has everything that you need and the nice touches from the owners, like the beer, bread, eggs etc.. are little touches that make is that extra bit special. We will be back again and we would have no hesitation in recommending this place!

Thoroughly recommended accommodation We had a very enjoyable week at The Charming Fleet Cottage in April and plan to return in the future. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and is very comfortable and well equipped. The welcome pack was much appreciated. We enjoyed exploring the village and surrounding area and the cottage is in an ideal location to explore the wider Dumfries and Galloway region. The Masonic Arms opposite has a varied menu with excellent food and welcoming friendly staff, we ate there every evening.

One of the best cottages we’ve ever stayed in. Really well equipped, beautifully decorated with the added bonus of being dog friendly. The brilliant welcome pack was much appreciated as were the lots of extras in the house in general. It’s a lovely area, great walks from the door and a dog friendly pub serving great food opposite. We’ll definitely be back!

Had a wonderful stay in the very comfortable Charming Fleet Cottage in early July. It is situated in a lovely and quiet part of Gatehouse of Fleet. It was great to come back to this home from home after a day exploring amazing Dumfries and Galloway. The property has every home comfort, including Netflix on the tele. There are some very thoughtful touches like the substantial welcome pack in the kitchen and the range of spices to use. There is a super shower room downstairs and bathroom upstairs. We enjoyed eating in, using the kitchen facilities but if you prefer to go out to eat then there are a small number of eateries close by. We had a meal at the Bank of Fleet hotel and the Masonic arms which is directly across the road. Both serving the usual pub food. Thanks Janet, hope to come back soon.

A wonderful accommodation set just off the Main Street of Gatehouse of Fleet, The Charming Fleet Cottage is within very easy walking distance of a number of beautiful countryside walks and parkland. The accommodation is very comfortable with loads of space both upstairs and downstairs. The owners left a fantastic welcome pack with the type of things you would ordinarily reach out for in your home and expect to be there. There is a lovely private seating area out the back of the premises, which is ideal for relaxing and enjoying a drink or a meal. I think the biggest compliment I could pay this accommodation is that it is extremely comfortable and most definitely a place to go if you want a wee bit of luxury and comfort in a fantastic location. We will definitely be back…

Had a lovely short break at The Charming Fleet Cottage. Absolutely gorgeous and a huge bonus that it is dog friendly. Really warm and cosy which was much appreciated when the weather was somewhat mixed… Really well equipped kitchen, a real home from home. Great location for exploring the area. Would definitely stay again. Thank you! Jo, Richard and Rafa

We have just returned home from our visit to your beautiful cottage, “The Charming Fleet Cottage”. Thank you for a brilliant stay. The cottage is 5 star in every way. It has been lovingly restored to an amazing standard, you should be very proud of it. Nothing has been left to chance. We might steal some ideas for our own house! The location is perfect for numerous walks and the pub across the road. Thank you also for the lovely treats you left for us and Buster the dog. We would love to visit again.
