“a lovely and relaxing space to unwind”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Colebrook was clean and welcoming; the harbor view right across the road was a welcome sight and encouraged you to just gaze and while away the time. The steam packet inn just 2 minutes walk around the harbor also gave a great welcome, good food and an additional room when our family expanded for an extra couple of days. Great walking opportunities and beautiful scenery. A great get away from it all.

“Perfect for our honeymoon.....”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We got married at Gretna Green at the end of May and chose Colebrook as our honeymoon destination for a weeks' peace and quiet.So glad that we did. What a fabulous location with the sea front and back and the lovely secluded rear garden. The cottage is spacious and very charming and a real home-from-home. It is very well equipped with everything you could need for a self-catering holiday.
An added bonus is the excellent Steam Packet pub just a short stroll away where we ate on several occasions (super food!)
The area is very pretty with lots of coastal and rural walks. Would love to return and explore some more....maybe on our anniversary......and would definitely stay at Colebrook again. A little gem! Graham & Rosemary Salt.

“Great short break”
Reviewed 15 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a lovely few days at cottage. So cosy and clean. Views were amazing from all of the windows. Went for walks. Weather dry and bright which was great too. No signal on our mobile which wasn't a problem for us but might for others. Will hopefully return.

“Fabulous cottage and stunning views”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone holidaying in the area. It has all the mod cons but maintains the old cottage feel. It was very clean and tidy with vases of flowers from the garden on arrival which was a nice touch. There are spectacular views from both the front and back of the cottage and we enjoyed watching all the sea birds from the window. There are numerous walks to enjoy in the area and we particularly enjoyed discovering the old fashioned tea room with home made cakes and speciality teas in Whithorn. The Steam Packet pub is 2 minutes walk from the cottage and serves excellent food. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we hope to return soon.

“What a fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Colebrook this April and what a wonderful holiday we had.
The cottage itself is delightful - full of charm and very comfortable. The rooms are spacious considering there were four of us. We used the dining room for meals and board games in the evening.
We ate in occasionally but also enjoyed the food (and drink) from the local pub the Steam Packet. It was brilliant walking out of the cottage and having a cold beer in hand two minutes later.
There are plenty of walks to do around there and we got lots of fresh air surrounded by beautiful scenery. You can't beat being right beside the sea.
We will definitely go back to stay at Colebrook and next time we hope to take our bikes with us to enjoy more of this beautiful area. It really did feel like a "get away from it all" holiday!
