Customer Reviews of Harbour Cottage, Isle of Whithorn - Sleeps 4
"Lovely cottage with an interesting view"
Clean and well presented, it was a comfortable cottage with a fine view of the small harbour, where there was always something to watch. The pub nearby served good food at reasonable prices and was popular. The area is quiet - with some travel required for a change of scenery.
Loved the location, by the harbour, near a pub with good beer and food. The house was comfortable, kitchen was pretty basic though. An old style house with low ceilings gives it loads of character but tall folks, like myself, have to be very careful.
