10th comment: The house was great and clean and wounderful for the children and the dog and us. June 2010.

11th Comment This is a large, spacious and light property which manages to have a homely feel as well. The front and rear gardens have furniture so that we could sit outside in the mornings watching the Blue Tits carry food to their young and in the evening enjoying fabulous sunsets. June 2010.

12th Comment The property is in excellent condition, the accommodation is spacious and well equipped, the gardens in good order and the outlook magnificent. May 2010.

13th Comment Very clean with everything you could need for the holiday. This included games, dvd’s and a good selection of reading books. The views were, as stated, spectacular. Plenty of space for everybody, information of places to visit. Dec 2009.

14th Comment The house was wonderfully equipped with ever thing you can think of. It is an fantastic spot very easy to access different places, very quiet. The view from the property is breath taking the view over to Arran was very clear. Nov 2009.

15th Comment Spacious, clean and very well equipped. Sept 2009.

16th Comment It’s position, the amount of space we had in the cottage. Everything was catered for down to the minutest detail. Oct 2009.

17th Comment Property right opposite the beach with excellent views to Arran. Sept 2009.

18th Comment Most generous space overall and the best-equipped kitchen we have ever encountered in holiday property. The parking was excellent - we had 2 cars and 3 generations in our party. It was the quality of the house which off-set the very average weather we experienced during our week. In spite of the weather we all would have wished to stay on for a further week. The garden furniture (sadly hardly used) was generous and of good quality. The bedrooms were airy, clean and well equipped with excellent storage. Aug 2009.

19th Comment The garden was fenced in for the dogs and the kids to play safely, next to the beach and just a lovely spacious house. July 2009.

20th Comment Excellent position, beautifully presented, thought of everything. Although there was only two adults and one child, the property could easily accommodate eight as advertised. My granddaughter is horseriding mad so the riding school was a bonus. Brilliant holiday will use again. June 2009.
