We recently travelled to the cottage and spent Monday to Saturday there. The pro's and cons are:

Fantastic location (once you are in situ)
Good for dogs
Very good booking process, we were upgraded to this cottage.
Good walks from your front door
Easy access to Portpatrick

The track down to the cottage is not suitable for a family car. It is over a mile of hard and rough terrain and we punctured the car tyre, delaying our return.
The 2 bedrooms are not separate, they are walk through from one to another. This is ok if you are taking kids, but we were with another adult. This proved awkward and should have been obvious from the description.

Overal, we would not return as whilst the location is great the access is a real problem.

Management response:

We're very sorry you punctured a tire on the road. Because of this, we extended your check-out time into the early evening so you can get the matter taken care of.

The family and i have just returned from the best week ever staying in the idyllic Glen Cottage, which is set amongst 2000 acres in the stunning Dunskey Estate. It literally has it all! Private beaches, beautiful forest and coastal walks, two fishing lochs, abundant wildlife and even a tearoom complete with walled garden and a maze!
The cottage itself is like a picture postcard of the rural getaway. Its charming, quaint and cosy but has all the modern conveniences. Upon arriving we were welcomed with complimentary home made scones and jam, and the log burning fire flickering away. There was even a bowl of quails eggs which went down a treat!
It was perfectly positioned to be away from it all yet remaining close enough to the near by village of Portpatrick with its restaurants and pubs to give you options.
I couldn't recommend this enough to families looking for somewhere with the freedom and safety to let the kids loose in area of outstanding natural beauty. Our return...
