“Fantastic holiday home with stunning views”
Reviewed May 9, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Very lovely spacious holiday home. This is our second visit to knockinaam house and it's a perfect place for us to stay. Plenty of room for me, my husband and 3 teenage kids. Very spacious with lots of room for us to spread out. Fantastic kitchen and dining area with everything you could possibly need. Great location and stunning views. Stranraer is a short drive away great for picking up supplies and only a short drive into Portpatrick itself. Would also recommend the old colfin creamery restaurant which is only a mile away and within walking distance on a nice night. Definitely will be returning here. Thank you Elspeth for a wonderful holiday. Xx

“Amazing house in stunning location”
Reviewed March 31, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We booked the house for a week to celebrate my partners birthday, even though we had seen the pictures the property was even more beautiful than we expected.
Plenty of good sized bedrooms beautifully decorated, two amazing lounges and a large dining kitchen that allows plenty of space for cooking and entertaining.
The views are beautiful and the quiet, rural location made it feel like a proper hide away.
Owners Elspbeth and her husband were brilliant / gave us a phone call to check we had arrived ok and to see if there was anything else we needed.
We will definitely be back! X

The house is much bigger than you would think from the photos on the website and it is in very good condition with modern, good quality furnishings. It is in avery quiet location but it is good for exploring the local area. Deer are frequently visible in the surrounding countryside. We have been very fortunate with the weather during our stay and we have been treated to the most amazing sunsets. We would certainly stay here again.

“Amazing house”
Reviewed November 21, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Had a very lovely week with extended family, house was immaculate ...everything and more you could need for a family get together .
Elspeth the owner was really helpful beforehand and while we were there.

Do try knockinaam lodge for morning coffee and scones, menu looks amazing but we ran out of time!

Portpatrick lovely and worth a visit.

Holiday house was just beautiful. Well equipped and very clean.the area is quite remote but very beautiful .
Plenty of places to visit .
My only criticism was to do with the twin bedroom...blinds and curtains needed to put up as the light came through the windows very early in the morning. Beds could have been a bit softer too

Thank you very much for your comments. I have taken them on board but sorry can't do much about the beds as they are brand new and perhaps not to everyones taste. I will install a blackout blind on the twin bedroom window which should keep out the morning sunshine.

“Beautiful house in a stunning location”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We loved our stay here, the house itself is well equipped and very spacious. We travelled as two families with teenage children and with the two sitting rooms allowed us to have separate spaces when needed. For other families with teenager, you will pleased to know there is reliable wifi in the house which coped well with all the devices in use at one time!

We had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Fernhill hotel in port patrick which is highly recommended at £14.50 for three courses was excellent value and being only a 10 minute drive for the house is easy to get to.

Nearby Stranraer has all the amenities you need including a Morrisons for the food shopping and a selection of take aways that you may need while you are away.

We visited logan botanical gardens, mull of Galloway and castle Kennedy which are all worth a visit.

There are some lovely beaches near the house too, but the weather wasn't great while we were staying.

Elspeth was great at answering any queries for us and was on hand if we needed her.

I would highly recommend this house and will definitely return.
