My husband 2 granddaughters and myself have just returned from a wonderful few days holiday in Millport where we found plenty to do for both the children and ourselves. We were very lucky in choosing The Hobbit to stay in as it was very close to the town and George and June could not have been more welcoming. Both our granddaughters were a bit afraid of the dogs on arrival but were firm friends with Sophie and Barney before they left thanks to George's patience.
We recently spent 10 days at the hobbit cottage in Millport as a family of 5. The house is less than a 5 minute walk from the beach, pub, library, shop, chippy and bus stop. The cottage was very well equipped with absolutely everything we needed for a home away from home. The rooms are lovely and the beds are comfy. The decor is very well done. The wood burning stove in the living room is fantastic and there's a good selection of dvds and books for rainy days. Garden is great for playing in, there's a washing line, picnic bench and BBQ.
But the best part about staying at The Hobbit Cottage was the hosts, June, George and their gorgeous dogs, Sophie and Barney. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome or at home. They are such wonderful, friendly, interesting people who clearly work very hard and really care about their guests having a wonderful time. They were fantastic with our child who was in tears when we had to say goodbye and they couldn't have been nicer to us or better company. We are so grateful to them as not only was their property amazing to stay in, they made our holiday wonderful by being part of it. And the dogs are wonderful with children - as they are poodles they didn't even set off my dog allergies!
We will 100% be back to stay and I'll be recommending this places to everyone I know!

A beautiful little cottage with its own private garden, loads of quirky nooks and crannies for the kids ( and adults ) to explore ! From the moment we arrived the owners, George and June , couldn't have been more helpful or genuinely nice, with an abundance of local knowledge to share. The cottage had everything we needed for 4 adults and a toddler, and so much more. For a perfect relaxed, entertaining family holiday, 5 minutes walk from the beach, in a beautiful secluded home on the edge of the woods, you really couldn't do any better....
