A comfortable room in the foothills of the Kilpatrick Hills, overlooking Dumbarton and the River Clyde to the South. The house is located for easy journeys by road and public transport to picturesque Loch Lomond as well as trendy & historic Glasgow.
In-house complementary therapies also available. We live with our lovely dog, Dexter. Whilst the shared spaces are definitely not going to win any prizes from lovers of show-homes, these spaces are clean. Guest-room and the bathroom are clean & tidy.

The space
We have a small semi-detached house and the guest room is up a short flight of stairs.

In the room is a double bed with bedside tables & lamps on both sides, along with available power sockets, a wardrobe, drawers, a heated drying rack and and an oscillating fan (these live in the wardrobe); and a TV with Freeview & a Bluray player (there are a selection of films available to borrow from downstairs & you can also use Netflix & catch-up TV services). The room is well decorated with good quality bedding. It has a radiator to keep you warm in the winter and we can always provide additional blankets if necessary. Each bedside drawer unit has a hot water bottle in the top drawer. In one of the drawers, you'll find a hairdryer, and on the other side, there is a small first aid kit available if you have need of it.
There is a great view from the bedroom to the Kilpatrick Hills, beyond our back garden there is nothing but fields!

The bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom and has an excellent shower, towel rail, toothbrush charger, etc. We provide towels.

We are happy for guests to use our kitchen and dining table with the understanding that these form the backbone of our personal space. As such, these spaces may be found to be messy at times, but always clean. We sometimes have a clothes airer up in the kitchen, particularly in the autumn and winter months. If mess bothers you, or you just want to relax in your own space, then there are little folding tables in your room for you to eat at. Your bedroom and the bathroom will always be clean and well presented.

We have good mobile phone reception here but of course will make our wifi available for any internet junkies!

We have a couple of bikes available for hire, a mountain bike and a hybrid, both small/medium size. We can supply locks and helmets too, plus maps/advice about the best local routes. Please ask if you want any more details. Prices are £5 each per day, and we're happy to negotiate a discount if you want them for a few days.

Amy works as a complementary therapist, so if you're feeling tired, stressed out, or just wanting some tlc whilst you're away from home, you can book in for therapeutic massage, reflexology, Indian head massage, ear candling, aromatherapy massage and aromatherapy facials too, mere steps away from your bedroom door. She is insured and is a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapies, so you can be confident of being in good hands. Costs for the above therapies are as follows:
Reflexology - £20
Indian Head massage - £18
Ear Candling - £15
Massage (Swedish, Aromatherapy, Acupressure and Neuromuscular): £15 for 30 mins; £18 for 45 mins; £22 for 60 mins. Speak directly to Amy about booking in.

Guest access
Our kitchen is available if you need fridge/freezer space, or to use the cooker or microwave. All we ask is that you tidy up after yourself. Please remember that this is our home, and you may sometimes find the kitchen to be "lived in". Even if it is untidy, vital spaces and equipment is clean. We have plenty of fresh coffee and both a cafetiere and espresso machine for those of you in need of regular caffeine boosts. There are also various kinds of tea plus milk and sugar.
Also in the kitchen is a washing machine if required. As mentioned before, we sometimes have the clothes airer up in the kitchen.
For the warmer months, we have small front and back gardens which you can also use and enjoy.

Other things to note
We live with our doggy pal, Dexter.
He has recently come to live with us as he needs a slower pace of life. He is a miniature schnauzer - laid back & easy going, and will give you space if you want. Otherwise, he loves humans and enjoys a cuddle. He is hypoallergenic and therefore, suitable for most people to have contact with. He is a downstairs dog, until it's bedtime and he sleeps in our room.

Location

West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, United Kingdom

We live on a quiet street so you'll be able to hear birds singing, which is always nice. For the more adventurous (preferably with sensible walking boots) you can explore the fields to the back of us and get some great views of the local area.

There is a local convenience store 5 minutes walk away (which also has a cash machine) plus several take-aways and a small community cafe are about 15 minutes walk away (or a couple of minutes by car).

Hello! We're a travel-loving Anglo-Scottish couple -- Amy is Scottish, Gary is English. Trying out new places, cultures, foods is always at the top of any travel-hit list, and we love to see a place from a local's point of view (whilst experiencing the "tourist" side of things too). In terms of hosting, we enjoy meeting new people, giving them hints and tips, and hopefully helping them to have a relaxed and enjoyable time. The five things we couldn't live without?: Each other God Food & Drink Music Our lines of work, which are very different but ultimately we both enjoy helping other people A life motto? Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with your God.
