person found this review helpful

The house is much bigger than you would think from the photos on the website and it is in very good condition with modern, good quality furnishings. It is in avery quiet location but it is good for exploring the local area. Deer are frequently visible in the surrounding countryside. We have been very fortunate with the weather during our stay and we have been treated to the most amazing sunsets. We would certainly stay here again.

“Amazing house”
Reviewed 22 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Had a very lovely week with extended family, house was immaculate ...everything and more you could need for a family get together .
Elspeth the owner was really helpful beforehand and while we were there.

Do try knockinaam lodge for morning coffee and scones, menu looks amazing but we ran out of time!

Portpatrick lovely and worth a visit.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Holiday house was just beautiful. Well equipped and very clean.the area is quite remote but very beautiful .
Plenty of places to visit .
My only criticism was to do with the twin bedroom...blinds and curtains needed to put up as the light came through the windows very early in the morning. Beds could have been a bit softer too

Thank you very much for your comments. I have taken them on board but sorry can't do much about the beds as they are brand new and perhaps not to everyones taste. I will install a blackout blind on the twin bedroom window which should keep out the morning sunshine.

“Beautiful house in a stunning location”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We loved our stay here, the house itself is well equipped and very spacious. We travelled as two families with teenage children and with the two sitting rooms allowed us to have separate spaces when needed. For other families with teenager, you will pleased to know there is reliable wifi in the house which coped well with all the devices in use at one time!

We had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Fernhill hotel in port patrick which is highly recommended at £14.50 for three courses was excellent value and being only a 10 minute drive for the house is easy to get to.

Nearby Stranraer has all the amenities you need including a Morrisons for the food shopping and a selection of take aways that you may need while you are away.

We visited logan botanical gardens, mull of Galloway and castle Kennedy which are all worth a visit.

There are some lovely beaches near the house too, but the weather wasn't great while we were staying.

Elspeth was great at answering any queries for us and was on hand if we needed her.

I would highly recommend this house and will definitely return.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a most wonderful holiday house. For us the location was perfect, peaceful and picturesque. The photos do not do it justice. All furniture and equipment was of top quality.
I would not hesitate to recommend.
