Coming from Galloway and now living in Berkshire, needed a large house to accommodate my family coming from all over for my nieces wedding at Old Mochrum, Inchlonaig was perfect. Beautifully equipped, I honestly couldn't think of anything the house didn't have. Even a bowl and ball for our dog Charlie. We were welcomed with a very welcome bottle of wine and box of shortbread, when we arrived late on the Thursday night. Sarah had put the heating on so house was lovely and cosy but as the weather improved we switched it off. We spent the day in the kitchen with the patio doors open, watching the view and listening to the waves lapping in the sea. Perfect.
We will be back and for longer next time
Amazing time in a beautiful, spacious, modern home!! Met by Sarah who welcomed our clan of 11 and 2 dogs. House was just perfect for all of us - adults had plenty of space to retreat to lounge and a wee Prosecco - whilst kids/teenagers were able to overdose on Nintendo. So refreshing to hear an owner to tell us to turn the heating and water on to what we required-usually everything set on timers and not to be touched. House had everything we needed and was so homely, clean and comfy especially with the Christmas decorations still in place. Did quite a bit of cooking and the kitchen proved to be the hub of the house with all the equipment we needed for the 'teenage bake off' and New Years steak pie dinner.
Great time had by all, even Mols & Daisy (the dogs) weren't left out as Sarah had left them some treats too.
Thank you Sarah for taking the time to keep in touch before our visit, for meeting us with such a genuinely nice welcome and for providing us with everything we could possibly need for our Hogmanay holiday. A great start to our New Year and we survived the storms, sea was amazing to watch from the comfort of the house. Wishing you and your family good health and happiness in 2018-thank you from us all and hope to see you again xx
Good location in small village of Port William. House was excellent with plenty of space for 6 adults and 3 children. Good cooking facilities and dining room was used a lot. Nice touch to have toys provided....our 2 year old grandson loved the play table! We brought games for our older granddaughters but it would have been nice to have had a trampoline or other outdoor toys provided. However the road in front of the property was quiet enough to allow the girls to play on their scooters.
Enjoyed our walks into the village and the children liked the playpark and visits to the tearoom/gift shop at the harbour.
Beach in front of the house was only useable late afternoon when the tide was out and this was ok with us for the dogs and children alike. We also enjoyed our two visits to the local restaurant in the village, the Clansman which was very child-
We managed trips to Wigtown to visit the book shops and an excellent trip to Isle of Whithorn for a walk and lunch in the local pub.
Wow what an amazing house.It ticked all the boxes.Our family ranged from 1year old to 80years and we all had a ball.Thank you so much Sarah for having us,would highly recommend this house.We didn't have the best weather but it didn't matter and waking up to the view of the sea was something else.
Excellent house, as described but even bigger than imagined. Good quality bedding and facilities. Only problem no Sky Tv in main lounge all week which also did not pick up free view, so pretty pointless as a hub for the family to watch all together (Hence the loss of a star). A note if you are fetching small children, the beach across the road is really only suitable for dog walking and is not suitable for sunbathing / buckets and spades (no soft dry sand), this is same all along this coast as we failed to fined a soft sandy beach within the local area: best beaches at sandhills about an hour thirty drive away near Colvend. Don't let this put you off though if you don't want a beach as the house has a lovely back garden which is a sun trap and plenty of seating / tables etc outside and a BBQ with everything provided.
So much to see and do,what an amazing location. There was plenty for all interests in the area. Sea fishing trip was most entertaining.
Excellent layout and high standard of accommodation.
