“A weekend diving in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed May 17, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

When we booked with Terry and Lynda we were given the option of either the farmhouse or two of the eight caravans down nearer the beach; we chose the farmhouse option as we were not sure whether there would be six or eight divers with all the gear that entails. In the end we had six adults in our party and the farmhouse, which sleeps eight in four bedrooms, proved to be perfect for our needs, with a huge kitchen downstairs and a large lounge with tv, DVDs, two x 3 and one x 2 seater couches upstairs. There are lots of things for kids to do on a rainy day including an air hockey table, there are two bedrooms on the ground floor, the first is a lovely twin/double en-suite with a smaller bunkbed room next door, upstairs you have two double rooms, the larger of which I assume can be a double if required with a decent sized bathroom at the top of the stairs. The views from the upstairs out over Sanda are breath taking and on a clear night the lights of Larne in Northern Ireland are as clear as a bell. If, as we were, you are looking for a dive site that is relatively untouched this is the place to be, stunning soft corals, wrecks by the score and wildlife everywhere you look, and with your hosts wealth of local knowledge and expertise on all things scuba look no further for your next dive holiday, Terry and Lynda went way above and beyond to help us launching and recovering our rib from the sea, filling our tanks [£4], and even loaning us gear and giving us equipment to secure the boat on the trailer for our journey home after our winch broke on a really rough retrieval from the sea on our last day. A few days before we set off I contacted Lynda about what time the hotel in Southend stopped serving meals so we could be sure of a hot meal after our journey from Ayrshire. She duly responded that it should be fine as last food orders were at 19.45. We trotted off round to the hotel arriving at around 19.00 only to discover a table had been reserved for us and the very friendly staff were expecting our arrival, thumbs up all round. All in all, beautiful part of the country, lovely accommodation and the finest hosts with the daftest dog you could possibly ask for. One word of caution, if you can't live without your phone look elsewhere as you basically have to travel the ten or so miles to Campbeltown to get a good signal on any network. 12/10

“Kid-friendly beach heaven”
Reviewed April 20, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location of Pennyseorach Farm is the unique selling point and takes your breath away as you approach down the farm track. You are what feels like touching distance from Sanda island and the front windows face out onto a wonderful view of Sanda, Ailsa Craig, Dumfries coastline and Northern Ireland on a clear day. Perfect location for kids - safe environment with beach just 2 mins down the farm track and the possibility of walking along the beach to Southend (visit the Muneroy tearoom) or rockpooling in the other direction. Lynda & Terry were really helpful and welcoming - I'm usually reluctant to book self-catering when you are right next door to the owners but Lynda and Terry left us to our own devices and were there if we needed anything. Being on a working farm was exciting for the kids and exploring the local beaches was a big favourite.

The house itself is perfect for two families sharing a holiday home. We went with our friends (4 adults, 4 kids aged between 7 and 5) and there was plenty space. Upstairs 2 bedrooms, bathroom & lounge (air hockey table was a big bonus!) and downstairs, ensuite bedroom, twin room, huge dining kitchen. Lovely well-kept garden area which offered great views and good star-gazing at night. The house is not kitted out with ultra modern features and loads of expensive ornaments and vases so we felt relaxed enough to let the children make it their home for the week. It is cosy, clean and warm - I didn't need the jumpers I took with me for in the house. Beds really comfy and good selection of DVDs and games. Local amenities great - Co-op in Campbeltown really well-stocked and local butcher/fishmonger also very good. Great days out in Davaar island, Southend/Keil caves, Machrihanish beach, Mull of Kinytyre lighthouse. We will definitely be back - a week of fresh air and total relaxation was just what we needed!

Thank you for your nice comments. It was a pleasure meeting your family and friends. It's a great place for children to play on the beaches and see the dolphins and seals. One of the best area's for star-gazing at night time.
You are welcome back anytime.

I would recommend this if you are looking for a relaxing few days by the sea in a farmhouse. Lots of room space and everything was very clean on our arrival. We have very gracious hosts that were there to answer any questions and give us a quick guide of the area. The views were so amazing!!
