We stayed for a couple of nights to celebrate our mums 60 the birthday. We all had a fantastic time and my mum enjoyed her stay so much, we are sure to be back again. The house is huge and spacious with lovely decor throughout and has everything you need. Margaret made our welcome extra special with all her wee extra treats that were greatly appreciated. Thank you .

We booked The White House with family and friends to celebrate my 30th birthday and what a fantastic birthday I had. Margaret the owner is delightful and extremely welcoming. The house had been decorated with banners and balloons. Not only was the house decorated Margaret also made a lovely pavlova in the shape of 30 complete with candles(my brothers and hubby are chefs and they loved the pavlova Margaret made), Lovely bottle of Prosecco was waiting for us in ice bucket., she even got my a present and a bunch of beatiful roses were waiting for me in my bedroom. In the fridge in the kitchen Margaret providet us with breakfast for next day.
The house is stunning with everything provided. The attention to detail is first class. The rooms are large, bright and tastefully decorated with lots of seating areas. The beds and bedding are of very high quality.The house is amazing the photos on the website don't do it justice. It is spotlessly clean,Its simply the best:)Thank You for all hospitality and your kindness.We will be back.xxx

We have had a wonderful weekend away as a group of special friends - an excellent couples retreat made all the more special by the extra touches provided by Margaret who gave us the most friendly warm welcome.Having stayed in many many self catering houses this has been by far of the highest standard also beating any hotel bedroom for quality, luxury & size. If you are considering it- do it! you won't be disappointed.

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

As a family group we have rented many properties across the UK but none of them have quite come up to the all round standard of The White House. Not only is the house beautiful and so well equipped, Margaret the owner is kindness itself and her team of Susan and Alex so lovely. They cooked breakfast for us twice over, the second time on the morning of my niece's wedding when the house was a little lively as might be expected. On returning from the wedding fresh towels had been placed in all bathrooms and beds remade, never have we received this level of care and attention when renting other properties. If you are looking for a large property for a holiday I genuinely believe you will not find better. Thank you so much Margaret!
