Wonderful rural location

It is a beautiful rural location with plenty of outdoor sitting space. The sitting room has windows all round so if there is any sunshine, it steams through the windows.

There is no getting away from the fact, the cabin is "cosy". The kitchen has limited preparation space and the double bed is squeezed into the bedroom with little room to slide down either side. Whilst I can understand being asked to leave used towels in a basket, I was somewhat disconcerted to be requested to strip the bed as well. Perhaps this is a left-over from the post covid arrangements. Tricky location - the map shown on the booking.com printout is very misleading.

Beautiful, peaceful and an absolute gem of a get away

This really feels like home from the moment you arrive. It's so peaceful and beautiful, ideal for a chilled night in front of the fire whilst watching the stars through the patio doors, the views are incredible and the host is wonderful, so helpful and welcoming,providing us with local information from where to find food to the best walks in the local area. The decor in the cabin itself is just stunning and really feels like a wee Scottish hoose!then of course with chickens and cows as neighbors you don't have to go far to see the wild life!

That we didn't book for longer! We will certainly be back soon

Stayed 2 nights for a weekend getaway and couldn't have asked for more. Main house is close by but cabin itself is completely private with its own driveway and deck facing out into uninterrupted countryside. Nearby Tesco (5 minute drive) for food and plenty of pots/pans/utensils for cooking. We spent our Saturday going to Boswells Coach House for lunch (recommend) and walking up to the ruins of Auchinleck Castle and down to the Lugar Water gorge, a wonderful walk but steep. Nearby Dumfries House is a must visit too! You'll need a car to enjoy the area, but we could've happily spent 2 days in the cosy Big Bear Cabin itself. Perfect for some peace!

Such a wonderful place and so peaceful. Rachel was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. It was lovely to have the cows and chickens around, they were adorable! Sitting out on the deck with such a stunning view was exactly what we were looking for. The bed was comfy, living room cosy, kitchen was ideal and the entire place had everything we could need. The bottle of wine and shortbread went down a treat too! Would highly recommend and will definitely be back :)

Room for improvement

Pretty little cabin

This place is considerably overpriced for what it offers. While it's undeniably a nice and clean location, there wasn't even water in the fridge or any snacks available, which is unusual for a stay of this cost. The overall atmosphere left much to be desired. Additionally, it felt like an unnecessary burden to be responsible for tasks like separating the trash and changing the bedsheets and towels. These are basic amenities that should be provided without guests having to worry about them. In conclusion, while the cleanliness and appearance of the place were satisfactory, the pricing and host's approach weren’t great.

This is a cabin in the grounds of the main house and overlooks rolling fields. Drank my morning coffee on the decking with me watching a hare watching me. Private. Cosy. Clean. Rachel is a great hostess and if you like private and cosy Airbnbs then this is an experience. Very handy if you’re planning a day visiting Dumfries House.

Comfortable, lovely host, fantastic location and private. We will look to return!

Great peaceful location in a private and cosy wood cabin looking out to lovely distant views. Everything worked as it should and we enjoyed meeting Rachel, the host who handed us keys and talked us through a few things.

A few utensils were not very clean and there was dust behind doors (i.e. bathroom) and in some cupboard areas. The rooms felt a bit cluttered; as much as it is nice to have some personality in a place (opposed to stark/clinical), we felt there were too many ornaments and other items. We loved the place but visually it felt a little crowded.

We had such a lovely time in this cabin which is perfect for 2. Only a short drive away from great attractions like Dumfries House and 30 minutes from the Galloway Forest Park. The hosts were also very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to see and things to do.

Cute little cottage perked on a small hill. Although we stayed just for one night, we did enjoy a wonderful sunset, and a clear night sky, full of stars. The owners were kind enough to allow us to also make a little barbeque, and they were welcoming throughout.

Every few dozen Airbnb stays you may come across a gem. This is one of them. The cabin is super warm and cosy. The location is perfect. Just remote enough so you can relax but still easy to drive to shops and restaurants while exploring the area. Rachel was very friendly and welcoming. She gave us plenty suggestions of things to do in the area and even a little welcome basket with fresh eggs from her chickens and a nice bottle of wine. We hope to be back very soon!

Bear cabin was, as it said in the description, remote and peaceful, so remote you only get so far with the postcode before you need final directions!! But that's its beauty, tucked away from main roads, traffic and all the hustle and bustle. We arrived slightly late due to the weather conditions but Rachel, the host, was at the cabin to greet us and fill us in on everything and offer her local knowledge for all our needs. The cabin itself was charming and cosy, nice decorative touches throughout and spotlessly clean. It is far enough out the way that you have uninterrupted views over the fields and hills but you are close enough to local shops and places to visit. Again Rachel was on hand to offer plenty of suggestions for places to go regardless of what your looking to do. Considering we booked this so close to our arrival date I think this was a great find and we were lucky to get it. Can't recommend it highly enough.

It was magical, a beautiful cabin in stunning countryside.

The cabin was a beautiful haven, so comfortable and cosy. The hosts had thought of every thing to make it so. The view from the porch was stunning and by night gave a superb view of the stars and moon. Quite magical! Though hard to tear oneself away from the cabin, there is lots to explore and experience in the surrounding countryside in Ayrshire and also nearby Dumfriesshire. Wish I could have stayed longer!

There was nothing, it was a lovely place, location and stay.
