We spent 4 days/3 nights at Kenmuir Cottage. The cottage is beautifully presented with a high quality feel throughout and great attention to detail. The cottage has a wide selection of movies, music and books for those days when the weather just does not co-operated. We loved the log burner and made good used of it throughout the stay. It was also good to have complementary WIFI, making keeping in touch with family and friends easy in a part of the country with patchy mobile phone coverage. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area. We visited the Kirkmadrine stones which were on 'vacation' with Historic Scotland in Edinburgh at the the time of our visit. We also enjoyed a walk through Ardwell Gardens and a stroll along the Sands of Luce beach at Sandhead. Portpatrick is also worth a visit.

Stayed here august last year. Loved everything about this lovely cottage and setting. House was very well decorated, great sound system/tv, everything thought about, large enclosed garden great for the dog.
Great walks from the door. Dog friendly pub in near by town.
Would definitely recommend this cottage.

“Perfect winter getaway.”

A beautifully kept cottage in a lovely area of Scotland, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kenmuir Cottage and would highly recommend to anyone wanting a quiet relaxing short break away.

We had great fun exploring the surrounding countryside and local beaches all on foot, and for the rainy evening there was enough wood to keep the wood burner roaring.

The cottage itself has everything you could possibly need and has been fitted out to a very high standard.

Thank you so much Jennifer and Forrest for a lovely weekend away.

We stayed twice in 2012 - In May and November. Both stays were very comfortable and Jennifer and Forrest were very welcoming. The cottage is pristine and has everything you need for a relaxing break. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with plenty to do for all ages.
