Stayed at the Knowe for a long weekend. The house is lovely and spotlessly clean and has everything you could possibly need. The flowers made it feel very homely. It was a shame we didn’t get to enjoy the outside seating as much as we would have liked, we’ll have to return in the warmer weather.

Management response:

Hi, Thank you for leaving such a lovely review! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in The Knowe. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Lynne

Amazing property. Our party was 7 couples (25-35) and it was ideal. Large kitchen and dining area, with table big enough for everyone to sit and have meals. Also child friendly. Bedrooms were spotless. Homely. Lovely views over the harbour. Owners were very helpful. Would book again.
