“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 14 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We booked Cairnhapple House for my parents 40th wedding celebration. There were 10 of us ranging in age from 5 to 64 and we all had an absolutely fantastic time. The house was extremely well equipped and has everything you could ever need. It was exactly what we were looking for and surpassed our expectations. Graham was helpful both in advance of the weekend, answering queries promptly, and also during our stay. Some great family memories were made here - we will definitely be back!

“Golden wedding anniversary”

We booked Cairnhapple House for a large family get together to celebrate my parents golden wedding anniversary. There were 6 adults and four children ages between 5 and 12. Liaison with Graham beforehand was very beneficial and he answered all our queries. The house is amazing. Everything you need and plenty of room, you could fit in more people easily. Graham was on hand to check all our needs were met and he was most accommodating. This area of Scotland is beautiful especially the little fishing village of Port Patrick. You could also get a ferry to Belfast from nearby Stranraer. Everybody had a wonderful time and there were tears from the little ones as we left their woodland dens and swings in the vast garden. We would definitely return. Thank you Graham

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.
