We have stayed in self catering accommodation from the north of Scotland to Cornwall. If there is a better appointed house than this we have yet to find it.

As a family of 10, there is ample space inside and out without ever getting under each others feet.

The owner, Graham is just yards away if you need him, invisible if you don't.

Wonderful, just the best.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 28 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a fantastic holiday cottage! We stayed with three generations ranging from 4 months to 52 years. The layout and space of the property complimented the whole family. The photos do not do the property justice! Our three year old loved the woods, exploring the garden and looking out for wildlife. We hired a hot tub from Dumfries, which made our stay even more luxurious! A few times we enjoyed the 2 mile stroll down to the secluded beach, which was extremely clean and peaceful, with rock pools to discover housing crabs and small fish, and even the occasional seal popping his head up to say hello! The property itself is incredibly well equipped with a huge double fridge and freezer, plenty of cutlery, pots, pans, utensils etc, games for the little ones and a huge range of DVDs for the grown ups. By far the best holiday cottage we have rented as a family for a long time!

“Better than ever”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Third visit to Cairnhapple with family and it just gets better and better. Once again the wildlife was amazing and the children loved having the freedom to run about the massive garden. My granddaughter hid in a cupboard hoping we would leave her behind when we left, and cried all the way to lunch.....OK she is only six!
Thank you Graham.

“Superb”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What a lovely property - comfortable, spacious and very well equipped. The grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of the large outdoor garden area as well as having plenty of room to play inside. Only a short distance to Stranraer for any necessities and a further play park for the children - and beautiful countryside for the 'older' family members in which to walk.

“Fabulous House”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just back from a great weekend spent at Cairnhapple house to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We found the house modern, practical, spotless and in a fantastic countryside location. The house made the occasion extra special.
