“Perfect holiday home in a beautiful part of Scotland.”
Reviewed August 14, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Located right on the front line of the harbour at Garlieston with beautiful views across the port. This holiday home is situated in a truly idyllic place to relax and unwind, and with so many picturesque towns and villages nearby to visit and enjoy you really can't go far wrong.
This was our first visit to this part of Scotland and we certainly weren't disappointed. We travelled as a three generation family with our daughter, her husband and our grandson and there was plenty for us all to enjoy. From the swimming pools at Newton Stewart and Stanraer for the little one to the nearby golf courses for our daughter and son-in-law (Cally Palace at Gatehouse of Fleet was outstanding) to the restaurants and tea rooms in the nearby towns for us.
Visits to Kirkcudbright and Port Patrick are a must as is the small port at the Isle of Whithorn.
The holiday home itself was perfect for our party with three large bedrooms and three bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge area with satellite TV available.
In the many years we have been on self catered holidays, I can honestly say that we have not stayed at a better equipped house. The owners ensured that the whole booking process was easy and everything went smoothly.
We would highly recommend Cladach holiday home and look forward to returning in the future.

“A holiday with everything”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

What a fabulous stay at Garlieston in Scotland. Such a beautiful setting with fabulous scenery , beaches both on your doorstep and a drive away. Suitable for all the family . Relaxing and a great place to recharge your batteries. Lovely unspoilt places to visit from the deers and walks the friendly nearby places of Port William, and Port Patrick and the great fun at Cream of Gallaway.
A friendly local pub with lovely safe beer garden for those with small children.
The house itself was everything we needed, all modern amenities dishes washer etc. Lovely touch with having fresh milk, bread and short bread biscuits was just what we needed when we arrived. Would definitely reccommed and will be visiting again

“Excellent accommodation and location”
Reviewed December 25, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

A fantastic modern and spacious house. Excellent flexible living and sleeping accommodation ideal for couples and larger families alike. Everything you could possibly need to entertain or be entertained. Garlieston is a wonderful relaxing location with great walks around the bay. A place where you can relax and get away from it all. There are good places to eat and drink in Garlieston and the surrounding villages and towns. Highly recommended

“5* plus!”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

An excellent holiday stay. Absolutely superb in every detail. No one could want any better And that is just the accommodation! The owner has thought about everything to make a perfect stay in Garlieston.
The village and area around are also great. Plenty to see and do within a few miles. We visited castles, priories and holy cairns. The Port Logan fishing hole etc are a good place too. We needed more time to do all there was to do.
The beaches are plentiful and quiet which we loved. The harbour area itself is enjoyable too. The coastal walks are fantastic. Only last Friday we were in butterfly heaven there, seeing dozens and dozens of them and a number of different species too.
We think there must be a little microclimate in Garlieston as each day, according to the weather report, it should have rained and rained, but it didn't!
So, to sum up the cottage and destination..." A little bit of heaven right here on earth"

I bet you agree if you try it!
Would definitely recommend Cladach.

“5* House, accommodation is second to none. Perfect location.”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I have just returned from Cladach, having stayed there for two weeks, and I can honestly say the worst part is having to go home. This house is located in a perfect part of Scotland. The accommodation was as good as some 5* hotels that I have stayed in. There was plenty to do in the surrounding area, and all the locals were extremely welcoming. The only feedback that I can give is that the front of the house could do with some greenery.
