“Wonderful holiday accommodation in a beautiful area.”

Just back from a wonderful week staying at High Clachan Farmhouse near Stranraer. This house was perfect for our family new year gathering and very well equipped with Christmas decorations and mince pies to welcome us. The weather was very stormy on a few occasions but this house keeps you safe, warm and cosy no matter what mother nature has in store. After walking on deserted beaches or exploring the local woodland returning to the house to relax and chill out was just perfect. The large glass conservatory on the side of the house allowed us to soak up what little sun we had while looking out over the hills of Galloway. Every aspect of the house is excellent with so much space and excellent en-suite bathroom facilities. This is a very nice house on a lovely estate which you are invited to explore by the very friendly and helpful owners. We look forward to returning.

“Amazing House in a Beautiful Area”
Reviewed April 17, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have stayed in a lot of holiday rentals in the UK, and many in Scotland, and this is one of the best ever. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived, with lovely welcoming touches such as spring flowers on the table, cookies, and essentials such as bread and milk. The house itself is very well equipped and furnished, it was very comfortable for our party of 6 which included our 2 children. We used three of the four bedrooms, all three of which had the most enormous ensuite bathrooms complete with roll-top baths! There are 2 additional house bathrooms as well. The house is in a lovely position on its own, and had plenty of outside space for the kids to play and explore safely. Kate and Angus who own the house were most welcoming - Kate greeted us when we arrived and gave us some very useful tips on things to do during our holiday. One real bonus is that as a guest on the Corsewall Estate we were allowed to use the gardens of the main house (Kate and Angus's home) which included a trampoline and a zipwire, which the kids loved. The gardens are beautiful. This is just a few minutes' drive from High Clachan or a pleasant walk over fields. This was our first visit to this area and we loved it - lovely countryside and beaches, and all very quiet. There are also several beautiful gardens to visit in the area which we really enjoyed. There are other holiday rentals on the Corsewall Estate, and High Clachan is anything to go by, I would recommend them too!

Thank you so much for choosing High Clachan Farmhouse - we're so pleased you had a lovely holiday at Corsewall. Port Beg is a great family favourite for us too - whether we're making sandcastles, building dams, exploring rock pools or, for the braver members of the family, swimming!

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 teenage sons. We all loved it. Fantastic house, great rooms spacious and tastfully decorated. Loved the bowl of raspberries that were there on our arrival together with the delicious cookies. The bathrooms are so clean and well laid out - we found ourselves taking design tips from the whole house. The boys particularly appreciated the excellent wifi. There was so much to do in the vicinity - bikes to rent, fabulous walks and beaches. We found this to be a restful haven and all a holiday should be. If we ever return we would definately be back! Owners are really nice and were attentive without being intrusive - perfect holiday.

“perfect!!!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We booked High Clachan for a long weekend when my daughter was making her first holy communion so her grandparents could share with us the special occasion. We were not disappointed. High Clachan is simply put just perfect. It's spacious, clean, pretty and tastefully decorated.
Our hosts, kate and Angus were fabulous. The children LOVED the welcome cookies and everything from dishwasher tablets to kitchen cloths were already there! There is every kitchen utensil you could need and more.
We had such a busy wkd but managed to squeeze in a few walks which were very rewarding. The views are just fabulous.
We are hoping to book a wee winter visit just to use that log fire, have a few walks with the children and relax in such a beautiful location!
