Guests Comments:

“Amazingly Gorgeous House – This house was stunning, my mum and dad wanted to move in. The decor is lovely and so comfortable feeling. It’s a home from home. It is so spacious, with 3 double beds and a table. The downstairs and really large with a stunning big kitchen and seating area, separate large dining and 2 sitting areas one with a log fire. Our family loved the forest surrounding the house and the outside area the kids loved playing in. The house was spotless and lovely and warm when we arrived. We loved our weekend here, the kids plus granny and grandad never wanted to leave. Will be back next year.”

 

“Fantastic Stay – We had a great holiday at the Knockinaam house. There was my parents, my wife and I and our 20 month daughter and my sister, brother in law and little boy of 5 months. Even with all of us the cottage seemed spacious and allowed us to have a lovely time. Very well laid out with a lovely big central kitchen and large dining table. 3 toilets and 4 bedrooms meant we were not on top of each other and the 2 livings rooms meant we had one for playing with the kids and one for relaxing in the evening when they had gone to bed. It’s a lovely location too. My daughter loved seeing the cows & sheeps from the front garden porch every morning. It’s nice and quiet but your not far at all from port patrick or stranraer or the many beaches. I would also highly recommend the nearby old colfin creamery for food . I would highly recommend the cottage for a family looking to get away from it all.

 

“Superb Location Amazing House – The house is set in its own grounds with a large patio and plenty of space for the kids to have a run and explore. Next door is a large field with 10 sheep and views across farmland and forest in all directions. The house has 4 large bedrooms and excellent wifi and kitchen. Two lounges as well for relaxing in the evening. A great location to explore the Rhins and further afield. We were 4 adults and 3 children but there was tons of space for all of us. Highly recommended and with the sun out every day until 9.30pm and temperatures hitting 25 there are no complaints”.
