“A Touch of Class”
Reviewed June 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

In May we stayed at 5 different cottages in Scotland. All were fine but this one, Kildrochet House, was by far the best. Beautiful house, very well maintained, and completely furnished from kitchen to bedroom and all rooms in between. This house has a "touch of class" that the others did not. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a quiet, restful and truly fine home for a week or more.

“Relaxing Break”
Reviewed June 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely well equiped cottage. Conveniently situated close to Stranraer and on the road to the Mull of Galloway. The grounds were good for a wee stroll round in a very picturesque setting. Definitely will return to this wee gem.

“ticked all the boxes”
Reviewed April 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The apartment was self catering and contained a comprehensive range of cooking and cold storage facilities, plus an excellent range of cutlery and saucepans, an area where too many SC properties fall down on e.g. no small saucepans, no scissors etc. but Kildrochit had it all..
Kildrochit is beautifully situated in a very pretty rural area yet amazingly is just a few minutes drive from Stranraer, which caters for all tastes of visitors, supermarkets, restaurants, golfing and so on, with many pretty villages to visit in easy driving distance. Other than farming there is virtually no industry, so it is a peaceful place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Dumfries and Galloway is a very neglected part of Scotland, people tend to shoot past it without looking, heading for the Highlands and Edinburgh. .
The apartment was very well presented throughout. My wife particularly appreciated the fresh flowers on display in all rooms. It took the best part of the first . Philip the proprietor was welcoming and unobtrusive, but if you hgad any queries or requests he attended to them immediately. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were looking for a comfortable "bolt-hole" for a few days rest. What a find Kildrochet Cottage was. Great location, really comfortable and high quality place to stay.
Would recommend this to anybody looking for a peaceful place with great facilities.
Would stay here again without a moments hesitation and have already recommended to family members.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

An absolute oasis of calm in the Southern Scotland area. Ideal for visiting places such as Portpatrick, Mull of Galloway, Logan Botanical Gardens and so much more besides. You can even cross to Ireland using the Ferry at Stranraer.
The cottage is beautifully laid out, extremely well equipped and the hosts Philip and Lesley attend to every little detail that the weary traveller may require! Exceptionally well equipped Kitchen, Bathroom and Entertainment section (plenty of books, DVD's etc) all combined to make this one of the finest holiday rentals we have ever experienced.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Georgian Mansion house with us!

We found Kildrochet to be beautifully presented and well equipped, backed up by a very welcoming proprietor. It is set in a lovely garden in a great part of the world, we'll be returning to explore further.
