“A Hidden Paradise”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have stayed in Millport on numerous occasions but have to say that Rose Cottage was the best. Beautiful, immaculate and well presented flat which has everything you need. We stayed for 5 days at the beginning of May for a much needed break and that's what we got. I loved the fact that it was dog friendly and it was difficult to get my wee dog Lyla back in from the garden as she loved lounging in it. Ideal location central to everything. Communication with Jen was fantastic. We loved it so much that we are retuning in August to her other property. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Rose Cottage is a home away from home. We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage with our two dogs. What a warm friendly island. A great place to relax, unwind and explore to your hearts content. A hidden paradise.

“Rose Cottage a unique experience”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Just back from a long weekend in Millport with my family. We stayed in Rose Cottage which is a unique, quirky house in the middle of the Island. It was extremely clean and had everything anyone could need for a holiday.
Millport breaks is a very welcoming site to use and Jen will reply to any of your requests very quickly.
Would totally recommend as the rest of my family stayed in the other properties .which they offer..

“Great, quiet cottage, ideal location and dog friendly”
Reviewed April 14, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I stayed here for 4 nights and would happily go back.
The cottage is very spacious, well laid out and very central for walking to the shops etc.
The private, enclosed back garden was nice to sit out in and enjoy the evening.
There was a comfortable double bed and day bed for lounging on after long walks round the island.
The kitchen was nicely laid out and everything you could need was in there.
I have rented other holiday lets on the island from Jen before and can say that Rose Cottage is my favourite. Comunication with the owners was straight forward (I got stuck in traffic and was late arriving) and the fact that I can bring my dog along is the icing on the cake.
I hope to return later in the year to this cottage and enjoy the walks, seal spotting off the beach and the local ice cream again x

“Egg-cellent Easter!”
Reviewed April 3, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Just had the best Easter break in Rose Cottage, Millport. The accommodation is comfy, cosy and very well equipped for 2 adults, a toddler and a very well behaved dog, Winnie.
Wished we had booked for longer - we need to experience more of life at Millport pace!
Jen, the landlady was great at communicating via text and email and the whole booking process was easy.
Can't recommend the cottage and resort highly enough for those wanting a relaxing few days to recharge.

“Beautiful cottage in great location with lovely garden”
Reviewed September 8, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Myself and 4 friends stayed in this delightful cottage for the Country and Western Festival weekend. It was spacious, spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need for your stay. We were extremely close to all the amenities which was great. We did spend more time in the cottage than we imagined we would, chatting over drinks, having long lazy mornings. The garden was lovely and we all spent time there, sitting relaxing. The sleeping arrangements were great, plenty room in the very comfortable beds. We all fell in love with Rose Cottage and will be booking again for next year!! Also had excellent communication with Jennifer the owner, nothing was ever too much trouble. The girls and I thought it was excellent value for money.
