“Fantastic holiday home with stunning views”
Reviewed 9 May 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Very lovely spacious holiday home. This is our second visit to knockinaam house and it's a perfect place for us to stay. Plenty of room for me, my husband and 3 teenage kids. Very spacious with lots of room for us to spread out. Fantastic kitchen and dining area with everything you could possibly need. Great location and stunning views. Stranraer is a short drive away great for picking up supplies and only a short drive into Portpatrick itself. Would also recommend the old colfin creamery restaurant which is only a mile away and within walking distance on a nice night. Definitely will be returning here. Thank you Elspeth for a wonderful holiday. Xx

“Amazing house in stunning location”
Reviewed 1 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We booked the house for a week to celebrate my partners birthday, even though we had seen the pictures the property was even more beautiful than we expected.
Plenty of good sized bedrooms beautifully decorated, two amazing lounges and a large dining kitchen that allows plenty of space for cooking and entertaining.
The views are beautiful and the quiet, rural location made it feel like a proper hide away.
Owners Elspbeth and her husband were brilliant / gave us a phone call to check we had arrived ok and to see if there was anything else we needed.
We will definitely be back! X

“Beautiful large house in a great location”

The house is much bigger than you would think from the photos on the website and it is in very good condition with modern, good quality furnishings. It is in avery quiet location but it is good for exploring the local area. Deer are frequently visible in the surrounding countryside. We have been very fortunate with the weather during our stay and we have been treated to the most amazing sunsets. We would certainly stay here again.

“Amazing house”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Had a very lovely week with extended family, house was immaculate ...everything and more you could need for a family get together .
Elspeth the owner was really helpful beforehand and while we were there.

Do try knockinaam lodge for morning coffee and scones, menu looks amazing but we ran out of time!

Portpatrick lovely and worth a visit.
