“Family holiday”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our 7th year and it gets better every year. We love our evenings in the conservatory socialising and people watching. Can't recommend highly enough. We've booked for the next two years.

“Fantastic property for large groups”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Just returned from a 4 night visit with friends (10 of us) cannot praise this house enough, 8 bedrooms 6 en suite. Location fantastic, amenities superb. Will visit again as soon as possible, great communication with owners. Roses and biscuits for arrival thank you Lynne.

“Excellent house and location for large group”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We needed a place for an extended family get-together for a 65th birthday. Chose this as it was in an an area we had not visited and it had the capacity for us. The house is excellent and comfortable, with plenty of space and full complement of facilities and equipment for a big group. Situation opposite the picturesque harbour with distant views of Northern Ireland cannot be bettered. 50 yards from a row of decent foodie pubs. Even a good quality chippie (in a van) across the harbour. We had exceptional weather - 7 full days in Scotland at the end of May with not a single cloud in the sky. Lots and lots to do in the surrounding area: local walks, beaches, Dunskey Maze and Logan gardens, Mull of Galloway. Highly recommended.

“Great large property in a great location”
Reviewed 13 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Nice lounge & nice kitchen - good for socialising for a large group of families - with separate spaces for adults & children.
Kitchen well equipped with all you need.
We stayed over late Dec/New Year & was always warm with plenty of hot water.
Very close & easy to walk around the harbour/town and to go for walks along the coastline (N&S).

“Beautiful house, great location”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

A group of 14 of us have just returned from a wonderful Hogmanay break at The Knowe. We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious and comfortable it was- it easily allowed space for us to get together in the multiple livings areas to socialise whilst also allowing space for those who wanted to escape the chat.
The location is fantastic- within stumbling distance of the friendly local pubs and convenient for setting off on scenic walks. The kitchen was well-equipped meaning it was easy to cook for everyone but there are so many nice places to eat nearby that we only ate in every other night.
Can't recommend this place highly enough.
