The little cottage is in it's own garden, with only one neighbour upstairs.
the day bed is in the bedroom, and can be used a single or double.
The comfortable double bed has a lovely view of the garden.
The compact kitchen has a small seating area, and kitchen table. There's a TV here in too.
comfy sofa, and table which can seat up to four.
The kitchen has a fridge, freezer box, oven, two ring hob and microwave.
The old stone steps give access to the shared area of the garden , through the gate is ours!
The sheltered patio in the shared area of garden, only shared with upstairs neighbour.
A comfortable sunny spot right outside the cottage door for a coffee!
Kames Bay Beach is about eight minutes walk from the cottage.
Plenty of quiet walks within reach. This one takes about fifteen minutes.

“Cozy and relaxing”
Reviewed May 20, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Had an amazing time with friends! It's a cozy little place to actually relax with a really nice garden! I would do this again, it was very easy and it was a perfect way to relax.

I stayed in the wonderful Rose Cottage for the weekend and what a delight it was! It has such a warm welcoming feeling about it, very clean and tastefully decorated. The shops and cafes were only a short walk away too :)

I highly recommend Rose Cottage to anyone that wants a relaxing and peaceful break away, Im very excited about returning in the summer.

“Small - Adequate for 2 people”
Reviewed August 27, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The accommodation is exactly as described but I was not prepared for how small the living/kitchen room was. I would say it is a two room flat not a cottage.

On the plus side it has all the necessary equipment and facilities required.

Close to the Newton Bar where we ate every night as the staff and service were exceptional.

Millport is a lovely place even if the weather was less than kind to us!

Hello Debi, and thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry you felt the accommodation was too small for your family group- I have ( as you yourself acknowledge) tried very hard to describe the cottage as accurately as possible- " lower cottage " to distinguish it from a flat leading off a common hallway, and " compact " because it is !
In retrospect, I wonder if our more spacious and larger flat at Crawford Street would have been a better choice for you- perhaps if you return to Millport you would have a look at that one.
