    We loved the area, the cottage was handy for walking. It was cosy and warm. I would have liked a washing line to use. Also our bins were full. I would have liked to know when the bins were emptied. Everything else fantastic.

    enjoyable holiday. Relaxing & stress free. Basic amenities in village shop, but for anything else, nearest supermarket is 23 miles away. Practically everything you need in cottage. Excellent location if you like walking, but a car is essential, although there is a bus service to Newton Stewart.

    Seaside Retreat is a sadly neglected bungalow in the middle of nowhere with little or no local amenities. The bedding in the small room although I believe had been washed, was in my opinion very old and only fit for disposal. The bedding in the double room was also past its best. The small room has two single beds with a small table between them of about 8 inches and what looks like a vegetable rack in the corner. There is no way the floor below the beds could be hovered due to lack of space. My concern is that animals are permitted at the address. The stone floor in the bathroom looks to be the original, it will never be clean again but would have benefitted from a bottle of bleach. The shower base also needs some upgrading. The kitchen is well equipped. The local shop is a joke, it maybe has one can of beans or one can of soup, I kid you not. I had to travel the 4 miles back to Whithorn to get a few groceries. There is a pub which is not cheap £6.50 for a glass of wine but then you are a captive audience, food is also not cheap In my opinion this bungalow could be brought up to a 'letting standard' with an outlay of as little as £500
