Happy Clients who have stayed with us

  • We were very fortunate to stay at Craigbittern with our friends while we had a weekend in Sandy Hills. It's a gorgeous, well appointed house with everything thought out. The kitchen is fully equipped, there's a game room, a den, a nice sitting room, a living room with a fire place, a full-dining etc. Really recommended for a big group of friends or family. Craigbittern is big enough for people to go about their own thing - go for a walk on the beach, read, watch movies, enjoy the fire in the living room, play pingpong, nap, etc. Can't wait to go back and enjoy a weekend away from the city!

  • We were lucky enough to be the first guests here to welcome in the New Year at Craigbittern. The house is huge and beautifully furnished and decorated. Everything you can think of has been provided - a kitchen equipped to cook roast goose for 12, a treasure hunt and games for the kids, an Xbox, table football and table tennis for the big kids, books, jigsaws and more dvds than we have at home! The weather was perfect, which meant the walk through to Kippford on New Year's Day was stunning. All in all an amazing weekend in an amazing house.
    Emma Porter- Craigbittern
  • Okay, so the best thing about Craigbittern was the space, it was large enough not to be tripping over each other (we were three families, including 6 teenagers). We often go away together, but in other places we have been a bit cramped at some point (parking, kitchen, dining, whatever..). Actually the dinning room is fabulous and we all sat together at the table for dinner which does not happen very often any more. And the games room was a hit. Oh, and I got 4G (on Vodafone) which is a rarity in this part of the country. The wifi’s fine, but it was getting hammered by the kids. We had a very lovely holiday stay in a chilly mid-February and would very happily come back again

  • We stopped here for new year with a large bunch of friends and what a perfect way to see in the new year. The house is amazing and very well equipt, from the decor and furnishings, the hidden den for the kids, cosy throws and a real fire, farmhouse style kitchen and the stunning beach just over the road. There's a lovely coastal walk up to kipford which has stunning views and at the end a pub to enjoy a well earned drink! It's a great holiday home to escape day to day life and I will certainly look forward to spending time here again!

  • I stopped here for new year 2016/2017. The house is furnished incredibly well & looks amazing. There was plenty of room for everyone to celebrate without feeling cramped. The house is just across the road from the beach where you can join the coastal path to Kippford & take in the beautiful local scenery. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for somewhere special to stay.
