“Perfect for friends or families”
Reviewed 9 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This is a lovely,spacious house and although the photos are tempting they are better in reality as this house is larger than it looks.All the facilities are a good quality and everything that you could possibly need.We were 3 generations so the space was really perfect for us,tvs,wifi and 2 sitting rooms etc for when the weather wasn't at its best.The area is lovely and on a clear day you had a good sea view and could even see Ireland.We met the owners who were very friendly and helpful which we really appreciated and would like to thank them again.
We have to mention the the wild life as to have a deer in your garden as well as rabbits ,foxes ,pheasants and birds of prey shows how lovely and rural the setting of this house is.

“Beautiful house ”
Reviewed 10 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Absolutely fabulous house in the middle of nowhere. A fantastic place to relax and watch the deer jump into the field in the evening.
Large house, good sized bedrooms, massive kitchen, 2 living rooms so you don't HAVE to watch the kids choice of tv!
Would recommend you stay here.

“Fabulous house”
Reviewed 28 July 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I booked this house for our employees that were working in the area they were there for a few months, they have told me that it was the best house that they had ever stayed in and very much enjoyed it there. Knockinaam is very spacious and quiet with no neighbours the house is always lovely and clean and all of the furniture and bedding is of a very high standard. Elspeth the owner is very friendly and there at the end of the telephone to help, nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this house to others and have done. Thank you Elspeth for everything that you have done for us and the house was a real pleasure to stay in.

Thank you for taking the time to post a Review on Trip Advisor. I am glad that your boys enjoyed their time @ Knockinaam even though they were working most of the time. I was very grateful to you fully booking my house over the quiet winter months as it is there to be used - winter and summer. I would also like to add that your employees were very well behaved and kept the house clean & tidy.
If you require any further accommodation I would be happy to welcome them back.

Kind regards
Elspeth

“Fantastic holiday home with stunning views”
Reviewed 10 May 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Very lovely spacious holiday home. This is our second visit to knockinaam house and it's a perfect place for us to stay. Plenty of room for me, my husband and 3 teenage kids. Very spacious with lots of room for us to spread out. Fantastic kitchen and dining area with everything you could possibly need. Great location and stunning views. Stranraer is a short drive away great for picking up supplies and only a short drive into Portpatrick itself. Would also recommend the old colfin creamery restaurant which is only a mile away and within walking distance on a nice night. Definitely will be returning here. Thank you Elspeth for a wonderful holiday. Xx

“Amazing house in stunning location”
Reviewed 1 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We booked the house for a week to celebrate my partners birthday, even though we had seen the pictures the property was even more beautiful than we expected.
Plenty of good sized bedrooms beautifully decorated, two amazing lounges and a large dining kitchen that allows plenty of space for cooking and entertaining.
The views are beautiful and the quiet, rural location made it feel like a proper hide away.
Owners Elspbeth and her husband were brilliant / gave us a phone call to check we had arrived ok and to see if there was anything else we needed.
We will definitely be back! X
