Reviewed November 7, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Everything about this holiday home is great, it's clean, comfortable, warm, spacious, excellent environment, superb provisions. One of the best holiday homes we've ever stayed in.
Our kids loved it, so did we.
Definitely highly recommend this home!

“Fantastic getaway”
Reviewed November 1, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The location was perfect, away from the noise of the city with still everything on doorstep. This is a great family house for a getaway with lots to do on your doorstep, including nature walks, beaches to visit and use of local attractions. We will definitely be returning.

We love this house and visit every year. Spacious and spotlessly clean. A well equiped kitchen with everything we need. Elspeth is an owner who likes to ensure her guests are comfortable...and Knockinaam farm is very comfortable.

“A fabulous home in a gorgeous location!”
Reviewed September 18, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a fantastic time at Knockinaam House! The house itself was spotless and everything you needed was there to hand. Beautiful wildlife surrounds you, and great walks nearby. We visited Stranraer often and used the swimming pool and local shops there. Portpatrick is beautiful to visit, as is Sandhead for a great beach option!

“Perfect for friends or families”
Reviewed September 9, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This is a lovely,spacious house and although the photos are tempting they are better in reality as this house is larger than it looks.All the facilities are a good quality and everything that you could possibly need.We were 3 generations so the space was really perfect for us,tvs,wifi and 2 sitting rooms etc for when the weather wasn't at its best.The area is lovely and on a clear day you had a good sea view and could even see Ireland.We met the owners who were very friendly and helpful which we really appreciated and would like to thank them again.
We have to mention the the wild life as to have a deer in your garden as well as rabbits ,foxes ,pheasants and birds of prey shows how lovely and rural the setting of this house is.

“Beautiful house ”
Reviewed August 10, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Absolutely fabulous house in the middle of nowhere. A fantastic place to relax and watch the deer jump into the field in the evening.
Large house, good sized bedrooms, massive kitchen, 2 living rooms so you don't HAVE to watch the kids choice of tv!
Would recommend you stay here.

“Fabulous house”
Reviewed July 28, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I booked this house for our employees that were working in the area they were there for a few months, they have told me that it was the best house that they had ever stayed in and very much enjoyed it there. Knockinaam is very spacious and quiet with no neighbours the house is always lovely and clean and all of the furniture and bedding is of a very high standard. Elspeth the owner is very friendly and there at the end of the telephone to help, nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this house to others and have done. Thank you Elspeth for everything that you have done for us and the house was a real pleasure to stay in.

Thank you for taking the time to post a Review on Trip Advisor. I am glad that your boys enjoyed their time @ Knockinaam even though they were working most of the time. I was very grateful to you fully booking my house over the quiet winter months as it is there to be used - winter and summer. I would also like to add that your employees were very well behaved and kept the house clean & tidy.
If you require any further accommodation I would be happy to welcome them back.

Kind regards
Elspeth
