“First rate cottage in tranquil location”
Reviewed October 18, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a characterful and well-designed cottage, and is clean and well-equipped. The wood burner was only lit twice because of the mild weather but is a cracker when needed! It's set in an area with some interesting beaches and towns, definitely an under-rated part of Scotland!

“Mr”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just returned from a fantastic week in this beautiful modern cottage with everything you could possibly need, even a telescope to watch the deer in the fields behind the cottage.

A perfect location for a relaxing getaway. Stranraer is just a short drive down the road where you can catch a train to Glasgow or a ferry to Belfast

There are also plenty of formal gardens to visit for walking round. A visit to the Harbour town of Portpatrick is a must try the Crown if your a sea food lover.

“A perfect peaceful modern property”

We have just stayed here for one week. The property has beautiful views of open countryside, with sheep and lambs in the fields out to the back and we even saw a couple of deer in the field out to the front.

The owners arranged for a bottle of wine and a card to be left to welcome us, which was a very thoughtful generous gesture.

Downstairs is extremely spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. The utility room has plenty of space to dry off walking boots on the rack provided and also set up the clothes airer if you don’t use the tumble dryer.

Be warned though, unless I worked the washing machine incorrectly when I chose a basic 40 degree wash, the washer takes about 3 hours to do a cycle.

The lounge is a cosy room with a log burner for the cool evenings and there’s a selection of books, DVD’s and a few games are available.

The downstairs bathroom is also a large spacious room and there is a small sun lounge where the front porch would be, this room gets particularly warm on a sunny day.

Upstairs though, because the bedrooms are in the eves, great care needs to be taken when walking around. All rooms including the landing have sloping ceilings.

I particularly liked the double room because of the amount of glass and natural light coming in, but to get into bed, I would have to bend over and work my way up the bed in a crab like movement to get into bed. Either that or scramble over the other person in the bed. So we opted for the king size room which had easier access, but still, at only 5ft, I had to be careful getting out of bed.

There are good points to upstairs though, the shower has amazing water pressure, the king size bed is extremely comfortable, the rooms are all toasty warm and the views over the back fields are lovely.

We did have issues with the cleaning. There were crumbs on the worktops near the kettle and toaster. The kitchen floor was sticky under foot. The lounge floor was dusty under foot, there were lots of bits on the carpets upstairs and every floor surface was littered with long black hairs. I vacuumed the floors and also cleaned the kitchen floor with soapy water, problem solved and the feeling under foot was much more pleasant. (The bathroom facilities were very clean)

Despite some negative issues, we would recommend this property as it is in a stunning peaceful location with easy access to the coast.

“Absolutely Stunning, the perfect chill out!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Been disappointed previously when renting in other parts of the country but this property was perfect! Very spacious, cosy and finished to a very high standard, the property has superb open views to all sides and we saw deer in the field to the back. The location is fantastic and only minutes from a great beach where we walked several times. The family enjoyed exploring some of the local coastal towns and we discovered the huge "The Grey Mares Tail" waterfall in the Galloway Forest. I cannot recommend enough and will undoubtedly revisit at the earliest opportunity!!
