Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Stedman
October 2020
The cottage had everything needed and the sitting room was a real sun trap - and yes there was actually sunshine as well..
Mr Fryer

Fantastic cottage in beautiful, peaceful location equipped with everything we needed.. Great walks and beaches on the doorstep. Saw deer behind the cottage every day and also dolphins and seals off the coast nearby. Would highly recommend and love to revisit.
July 2020
Excellent cottage, very spacious and extremely clean, it had everything we needed and we had the most amazing week escaping all the drama from the last few months! We arrived to find a bottle of wine and a card which was a lovely personal touch. There are hares and deer in the field which we saw daily and a short stroll to the bay, this cottage was one of the best we have stayed in and will definitely be back. All beds were very comfortable, I would recommend to the owners perhaps a bed topper on the double room as it is quite firm but that's just my personal preference. So many beautiful sites to see but our best day was a beach trip to Port Logan where we caught fish from the rocks!

I've stayed here many times now and we always look forward to out next trip. The cottage is beautiful and both well looked after and well equipped. The views are fantastic it's always a treat to see the deer or hares out in the fields. We've been up as a couple and as a family and it's been excellent every time. Some great spots to eat nearby. I can recommend the seafood platter at The Crown in Port Patrick. Fresh buns from the shop in Glenluce are great too but get there early.

Mrs Brown
October 2018
Really lovely cottage, clean and comfortable.. Very handy folder of useful information and a box of leaflets for local walks and things to do. Nice touches made us feel welcome, such as the bottle of wine and the fire was laid ready. There was a supply of wood which lasted us several evenings. Kitchen was well equiped. A previous review mentioned the ceiling heights - they are very low but only upstairs in the bedrooms so it's only an issue when you're going to bed. The ceilings are high in the downstairs living areas, so my 6ft 5 husband was fine.

Beautiful, rural cottage a few minutes walk to a beach and stunning coastline.. Property was immaculate and we all commented that it was very spacious (Tardis Like) and had a good layout for a family group. Like previous hirers due to the nature of the cottage and ceiling height up anyone taller than 6ft would struggle. All in all a fabulous cottage and would use again also loved the fact that there was no wifi and patchy mobile reception!

The property and location were stunning, wildlife, quiet beaches all close by .. Definitely a place to unwind and relax would definitely recommend .
Mrs Storey

House great peace and quiet.. Second time there. Every thing we needed .Plenty of places to visit. Did not get to Ireland as weather too hot but enjoyed ourselves.
Mrs Westwood
June 2018
We had some very difficult communication with Sykes leading up to the holiday where I felt there was no grace at all for the situation that we found ourselves in.. Probably you can see that from documentation of previous communication. That apart, the holiday itself was good.

This is a characterful and well-designed cottage, and is clean and well-equipped. The wood burner was only lit twice because of the mild weather but is a cracker when needed! It's set in an area with some interesting beaches and towns, definitely an under-rated part of Scotland!
Mr Breckenridge
October 2016
The only comment I would make is that you need to be very careful upstairs not to bang your head.. In all other respects the cottage was excellent.
Mr Cripps
August 2016
The owners really went above and beyond what we were expecting in terms of the little things provided. The property was truly amazing and beautifully presented both inside and out. It is set in such a lovely setting too, we spent a lot of evenings just watching the wildlife outside. Could easily have stayed another week.
Miss Laidlaw

The best holiday cottage I've been to, the house was fantastic and overall we had a homely welcome, will do more than recommend to others, can't wait to book again! Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and welcoming.

The cottage is so lovely and peaceful, a great base to come back to after a day of exploring. You are only 2 minutes from a beach and you are surrounded by lovely fields with lots of wildlife. This was my second time staying here and it wont be my last.
Mr Cowling
July 2015
A lovely well equipped cottage in a peaceful location, just a few minutes walk from the beach. We could sit in the lounge and watch hare and deer from the large windows.
Mr Turbitt
April 2015
A beautiful cottage with great views and a short walk to the beach. A lovely kitchen and lounge. We loved the open feel when looking out the sliding doors and windows, although my favourite place was the porch.
Mrs Prescott
February 2015
The cottage was quite spectacular with amazing views. I am definitely going to book for summer.
Mrs Daglish

Lovely location and gorgeous cottage. The cottage was really well equipped and every need had been considered. The cleanliness was second to none and we loved the location and the scenery. Would undoubtedly return and would love to visit in the Summer months!
December 2014
We spent an amazing week in this beautiful well appointed cottage.Although cottage seriously underrates this immaculate,spacious well equipped holiday home.It was in a fantastic spot for walks on shingle beach or walks over the tops to next cove.We will definitely go back.

The cottage is of the highest standard from all that we have previously rented. It's rural setting is so peaceful and calm and ideally situated for all the areas attractions. Simply stunning.
Ms Walker

The cottage was excellent, very, very clean. Welcoming with lots of information in the book as to where to visit. The welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch.

Beautiful cottage set in a wonderful location just some of the cleaning hadn't been done properly but i just sorted it myself don't let that put you of

Just returned from a fantastic week in this beautiful modern cottage with everything you could possibly need, even a telescope to watch the deer in the fields behind the cottage. A perfect location for a relaxing getaway. Stranraer is just a short drive down the road where you can catch a train to Glasgow or a ferry to Belfast There are also plenty of formal gardens to visit for walking round. A visit to the Harbour town of Portpatrick is a must try the Crown if your a sea food lover.
Mr Meredith
July 2014
A very quiet location, short walk to the sea, but still close to main road making our visiting to the area easy.
Mr Glover

Fantastic location, amazing scenery and an outstanding property
Miss Sowerby
May 2014
Loved the cottage very comfortable, we loved coming back in the evening after being out exploring all day, it was very peaceful. Excellent walks from the cottage, beaches, wildlife, so much to explore. I will definitely be going back .
Mr Coffey
February 2014
It was great to discover a new area - one which turned out to be much more attractive than I had thought. It was particularly good for walking. We found the cottage to be very much to our taste as well, it being in pristine order. A lot of thought had gone into presenting a comfortable and well fitted-out holiday home.
February 2014
Been disappointed previously when renting in other parts of the country but this property was perfect! Very spacious, cosy and finished to a very high standard, the property has superb open views to all sides and we saw deer in the field to the back. The location is fantastic and only minutes from a great beach where we walked several times. The family enjoyed exploring some of the local coastal towns and we discovered the huge "The Grey Mares Tail" waterfall in the Galloway Forest. I cannot recommend enough and will undoubtedly revisit at the earliest opportunity!!
December 2013
Thoughtfully furnished..spectacular views from the sitting room..we hardly looked at the television..we just sat and sipped wine and watched the landscape change with the weather..a short walk to the beach an added bonus..
October 2013
Spacious, comfortable, homely accommodation in a quiet, unspoilt part of the country yet with so much to do and explore. The coastline is stunning, the beaches quiet and the settlements quiet and attractive. The Galloway forest is nearby and offers a stunning setting for a whole range of activities. We saw deer from the window, seals at the coast and far more besides.
Mrs Gallagher
September 2013
A lot of thought had been given to everyone's needs, and the cottage was peaceful, and the outlook even more so. The wrap-around windows in the sitting room were a joy, we just sat and gazed out, and it did not matter if the weather was bad. The beach being so near was an added bonus.
Mr Stanford
September 2013
The location of this property is outstanding if you are looking for solitude, peace and quiet and wonderful countryside. It is also only 8 minutes walk to the beach. The cottage is outstanding in its presentation and finish, the location is breathtaking. My wife and I are cottage rental junkies, renting up to 3 properties a year over the last 5 years. This property and its location is by far the best we have experienced.
Mr Swain
August 2013
Fantastic, light and roomy accommodation. Beautiful part of the country, so much to do in the area with great variety and yet so quiet and unspoilt. Wonderful wildlife, especially the deer that were usually visible from the house. We loved it all.
Mrs Pitt
June 2013
The location of the property was excellent a real get away but within easy access to all areas of the country. The owners had thought of everything to cater to our needs.
