“Perfect Cottage for a relaxing weekend”

person found this review helpful

The cottage was perfect for our relaxing weekend - it was comfortable and just the perfect size for 2, with the comfiest of beds! It's perfectly situated between Stranraer and Portpatrick so its an excellent base for doing a little sightseeing in that part of the country. Thanks again Viv.

Just what I needed for time out log fire would have made it five star very clean out of the way central for exploring the area

“Nearly Perfect, clean and homely”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Nice and clean spacious cottage, lovely isolated location, but close to Portpatrick and Stranraer.
Comfy living room and beds, really effective heating.
It does say it has wifi, but it really only works in the entrance hall, so if you need it to do work or emails it's a bit of a pain, but didn't really affect our holiday.
If I'm really nit picking the knifes in the kitchen are a bit blunt if your preparing food.
Other than that, a lovely place that I would recommend and happily stay again.

Dear Mr Eastwood,

Thank you for your review. I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay.

I'm sorry to hear you had difficulty accessing the wi-fi which was available both in the sun room / porch and along the hallway (although hampered by the thickness of the stone walls). A wi-fi extender has now been installed to boost the signal.

I was disappointed to read that you had a problem with the kitchen knives. A sharpening steel is provided within the cutlery cupboard for this very purpose. Alternatively - since we only live next door - we would have been more than happy to sharpen the knives for you, had you asked.

I hope these issues will not deter you from returning in the future and we look forward to welcoming you back at some point.

Regards,

Viv Andrew.

“Excellent, Very Clean & Very Comfortable,”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Old Stables Cottage is very clean & comfortable. It is appointed to a very high standard & all the fixtures & fittings are good quality. The kitchen is well appointed with a halogen hob, grill, fan oven & combi microwave oven. The bed is very comfortable & the linen is clean & fresh & good quality, as are the towels. The shower room is very clean & functional. There is more than ample parking. The owners are very hospitable, friendly, helpful & accommodating & I have no hesitation in recommending Old Stables Cottage for a stay.
