“A home from home suitable for young and old”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We booked this house for a week in June, there were 3 generations including my two grandchildren aged 1 and 4 years. It is the best equipped house we have ever rented in Scotland and my daughter really appreciated the full sized cot highchair and the stair gates.
My grandson aged 4 loved the golf facilities and hectors house in the garden, when we arrived the garden was in full display showing in all its glory with all the rhododendrons etc in full bloom and the scent was fantastic only added to the pleasure of our stay in this house. We were very lucky with the weather and had bbq,s in the garden. The house is full of surprises with little rooms which if you wanted to get away from it all you could. Will recommend to friends and family and hope to be back with them all again.

“Fantastic week for all the family”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Excellent family house and position. 7 adults and 4 children (one of whom enjoyed his 2nd birthday) had plenty of room as we were maily outside enjoing wonderful weather. The BBQ was well used and we eat outside every evening except the Friday when we went to Felicitys for 2 for 1 Fish and Chips! Very well equipped kitchen and only used the dining room for breakfast. The lounge was huge and allowed the kids toys and games to be well spread. Excellent bedding and thick towels (including beach towels) and 3 bath/shower rooms were fine for us all. The children had a wonderful time in the garden - the Hector's House was a great den - and the adults enjoyed the patio. Overall an excellent holiday and we have booked for next year - but later when the midges will be bigger!

Superb property in a stunning location. Very clean and comfortable house nicely presented .
We are a group of 9 golfers staying for 3 nights. everything was perfect even down to a putting green in the garden. The owners were extremely helpful.
All in all a top location for a large group looking for a better alternative to B&B

“Fantastic week!!”

My wife and I stayed here last week with some friends and our two dogs. The house is in a great location with easy access to Whiting Bay's facilities, the beach and other local walks.
Internally the house is spacious, clean and superbly well equipped.
We took advantage of a fabulous week's weather and used the lovely garden every day.
I'd highly recommend this property and would definitely return.
