The perfect retreat
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!

A great place to get away from it all
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.

First rate cottage in tranquil location
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!

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.
Mr Cripps

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.
