Happy Clients who have stayed with us

  • Perfect is the only way to describe this property and it's surroundings. The house itself set in a stunning location, with each room furnished to a very high standard is so warming and welcoming. If you can pull yourself away from the property, you are never short of things to do, with the beach across the road and coastal walk to the beautiful coastal villages Rockliffe and Kippford. Such an amazing place, perfect for a family get together or group of friends, can't recommend enough. Will definitely be back in the near future.

  • What a stunning house. We loved everything from the fully stocked kitchen to the cosy decor to the open fires and luxurious bedrooms. They've thought of everything - even a games room, x box, and treasure hunt for the kids!
    Jenny Fitzgerald-Craigbittern
  • 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!
