“Egg-cellent Easter!”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Just had the best Easter break in Rose Cottage, Millport. The accommodation is comfy, cosy and very well equipped for 2 adults, a toddler and a very well behaved dog, Winnie.
Wished we had booked for longer - we need to experience more of life at Millport pace!
Jen, the landlady was great at communicating via text and email and the whole booking process was easy.
Can't recommend the cottage and resort highly enough for those wanting a relaxing few days to recharge.

“Beautiful cottage in great location with lovely garden”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Myself and 4 friends stayed in this delightful cottage for the Country and Western Festival weekend. It was spacious, spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need for your stay. We were extremely close to all the amenities which was great. We did spend more time in the cottage than we imagined we would, chatting over drinks, having long lazy mornings. The garden was lovely and we all spent time there, sitting relaxing. The sleeping arrangements were great, plenty room in the very comfortable beds. We all fell in love with Rose Cottage and will be booking again for next year!! Also had excellent communication with Jennifer the owner, nothing was ever too much trouble. The girls and I thought it was excellent value for money.

“Lovely, central flat. Perfect for a short seaside escape.”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Clean, tidy and has everything you need. As advertised and the landlady is very nice too. perfectly located just a short stroll to the main street and beach is 5 mins away. Wonderful little town with so much to do. Perfect for a holiday getaway with the family.

Compact kitchen area that is well equipped, combined with a dining and seating area.

Large bedroom with enough sleeping arrangements for four people. Has a double bed and a day bed that has a pull out bed also.

TVs in both the bedroom and the kitchen/dining area also. There is wifi but due to my poor/lack of service on my mobile devices I couldn't really make use of this much.

The garden is a little treat too for the children to play in and to relax if you have nice weather.

I would recommend the George Hotel for good quality pub food. They couldn't do enough for my fussy wee girl, lol. And the little bistro across from it is excellent too. Lovely homemade lasagne and chicken curry for the kids. The menu had plenty of choice and we were made to feel very welcome.

The beach is fabulous, clean and superb for the kids to go rock pooling and shell hunting etc. And don't miss out the Crocodile rock.

Visit Fintry Bay too. There is a little rock beach and café there for a slice of cake and cup of coffee. It is just a five minute drive or short cycle ride along from Millport.

Great little flat and great break.

“Cosy Accommodation in good location”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed for a long Easter weekend. The property has been recently renovated and has been decorated very tastefully. The main room easily sleeps 4 between a comfy double bed and fold out day bed. The fifth person sleeps on a zed bed in the kitchen - this was OK for a short stay as you need to move things around in the kitchen to get the space to fold it out then get it back again in the morning. The kitchen itself is well equipped with new appliances all round and is nice and bright. A porch with hanging space and room for shoes & boots leads from the kitchen into a small garden. The garden is a pleasant spot for sitting out and relaxing when the weather is good,
The cottage is one street back from the seafront, the street is pretty quiet with not much traffic and is within easy walking distance of the main attractions in the town.
Overall very pleased with the cottage and would consider renting again.
