Powfoot Cottages
Cottages for families and friends in and around Powfoot

Many holiday cottages to discover!

To make the best of your trip in Powfoot, we recommend you bring some essential items. You can never be sure of the weather, so take something to protect you from the rain - ideally something that can be packed in a rucksack just in case.

We think a good book is another essential. Not just an opportunity to catch up on your reading, but also to pass the time waiting for everyone else to get themselves ready, or wait out the rain! Lastly we think turning up with a few things to eat and drink is a good start to your holiday - there's nothing worse than grumpy kids or friends when its time to unpack, and a little chocolate or a cup of coffee can work wonders. We love finding great new cottages, part of the fun of a holiday is not quite knowing where you're going! 

Powfoot Accomodation

In Powfoot, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. The summer holiday period (for schools) runs from mid-July through the whole of August. 

Half term dates are different for different schools, but normally summer half-term is around the first two weeks of June. Last minute bookings are alway possible, though clearly your choices will be fewer. It really is worth booking early. 

Cottage agencies are growing in size as a greater number of independents sign up with them. As a consumer this has a positive impact - in theory the facilities and standards are kept to a pre-agreed level.

Holiday Cottages

When you choose your Powfoot accommodation its worth bearing in mind the group of people staying with you. Are you looking for a quaint old stone cottage in Powfoot with an open fire - or something a little more child friendly with nice warm carpets and central heating? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Powfoot cottage. It's a good idea to ask the owner or agency whether you can take your pet inside the Powfoot cottage. And let them know if it's not a dog! 

We want you to have a great Dumfries and Galloway holiday so we wish you the best of luck finding your perfect accomodation. 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering always makes your holiday more relaxing in Powfoot. You take away some of the pressure that appears when staying in a hotel or b and b - you must eat your meals at this time, you must order from this menu. 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in Powfoot. 

But you may want to get out and burn some energy on bikes, climb a hill or mountain, or even try canoeing. Whatever you choose, please take the right clothing and equipment with you.
