“Amazing house, all you could want”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This house is beautiful, far better than the pictures make it look and very clean. It is a spacious and comfortable house. The rooms are a good size and well thought out. We were a group of ten aged between 11 and 40+. Great house for hide and seek, adults and children alike!. Lovely area for walking, saw deer, red squirrel, woodpeckers and other birds. Lots of pots and pans, glasses etc in the kitchen. Lovely towels!!! The owner, Graham, is very friendly. Would definitely recommend this house - absolutely beautiful. Wish we were still there.

The pictures of this house don't do it justice, the rooms are a lot larger than they appear in the photographs, it is my dream house. When the weather is good, there is no reason to leave the house because there is plenty of room for kids of all ages to run about and play. it is well provided with outdoor and indoor games to play. We were there with my 5 grandchildren with ages ranging from 5 to 19 and they all loved it, the only problem is there is no mobile phone reception and my Granddaughter had to wait till we got in the car to keep in touch with her friends (which I don't think is a bad thing). My son in law never wanted to leave, as he is a keen fisherman and there is lots of good fishing sights in the area (so he tells me). For myself I would have been happy just to stay in the house for the full week we were there. This is a great relaxing home from home with good shops and restaurants in Stranraer and Port Patrick

“Fabulous”
Reviewed July 12, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Stayed with extended family of 6 adults and 4 children for the weekend and found the house to be a real gem. The quality and condition of the property were first class, with the furnishings very good and thoughtfully put together.

The owner has done an excellent job in creating a house that is well designed and would be fine to stay in for a weekend, or longer if you wished. The welcome was warm and instantly made us feel at ease.

The house had more than enough space for us, with the open plan kitchen and dining room downstairs, along with the tv & dvd player in the lounge. Also on the ground floor there was a double bedroom, twin room and bathroom and the laundry room/porch.
Upstairs you have another tv and sitting area, with one spacious double bedroom, another very spacious double with a twin room and bathroom behind it.

At the house itself, there is no mobile signal that we were able to get, it was a few minutes in the car before we got one. Is this a drawback? Well not really, as it is good to have a few hours away from the emails, isn't that what part of going away from work is meant to be about!

The weather was on our side, so we spent one day at Portpatrick, visiting Dunskey Gardens in the afternoon, and they were about 10 minutes drive from the house. The other day, we went down to SandHead with its golden beaches, this was less than 20 minutes drive. Both days offered us the chance to relax and unwind, taking in some stunning views.

In summary, as a professional in the tourism industry of some years, I would have no hesitation to recommending this house to family, friends, business colleagues or yourself and would look to return myself.
