“A Super Holiday Rental”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Cairnhapple House is a super holiday rental for family holidays or those special family occasions We were a family party of twelve [ 6 adults and 6 youngsters ranging from 2 through to 14 years of age] spanning three generations staying for a 3 night weekend break on the 8th, 9th and 10th August.
The house is modern and easily accommodated our party as we found the rooms extremely spacious, spotlessly clean and very well furnished and equipped. For those days when the weather is not ideal [we had a day of non stop rain ] the size of the house really comes into its own as our party and especially the children were happy to amuse themselves indoors for the day. The store of games that were provided helped in this respect.
Although the inside is impressive the outside deserves a mention as to the front there is a pleasant grassed area to enjoy a sunset whilst to the rear is an extensive grassed area ideal for a family game of rounders or football or just for relaxing. This rear area is enclosed by a woodland strip which provides a further interest for all ages in watching the extensive bird life and if you are lucky an occasional red squirrel. The owner was helpful and discrete and as the house is midway between Stranraer and Portpatrick in a rural situation it is well placed if you are considering exploring this terrific area of SW Scotland.

“Beautiful House”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at this house due to being let down by another holiday letting company and only got this at very short notice. The house is immaculate, it is spacious, has every home comfort and its setting is fantastic. Graham the owner made sure we were welcomed with the basics needed to start your holiday (thank you Graham), the rooms are large, beds very comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need. There is so much wildlife there to see in the gardens, woodpeckers; deer; pheasant many varieties of birdlife too many to mention them all. We stayed for 4 nights any had a wonderful break.

“Amazing house, all you could want”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This house is beautiful, far better than the pictures make it look and very clean. It is a spacious and comfortable house. The rooms are a good size and well thought out. We were a group of ten aged between 11 and 40+. Great house for hide and seek, adults and children alike!. Lovely area for walking, saw deer, red squirrel, woodpeckers and other birds. Lots of pots and pans, glasses etc in the kitchen. Lovely towels!!! The owner, Graham, is very friendly. Would definitely recommend this house - absolutely beautiful. Wish we were still there.
