A wonderful place to stay with the best views. The property was very clean and well equipped. We couldn't have asked for more. A lot of thought and energy has gone into making people's holiday memorable. Would definitely recommend Ocean view!

Tranquil location by the seafront; the cottage was well appointed and clean. Wifi was excellent and essential given the lack of mobile coverage in the Isle of Whithorn area. Beautiful property and location would gladly visit again.

Beautiful place to stay with all home comforts supplied. Very clean and cosy. The views are amazing. Not a lot of shopping facilities nearby but did an online grocery shop to be delivered when we arrived and that worked perfect for us.

Fantastic little place. Would highly recommend, everything you need and a great view. Very well looked after and really clean. Some great walks, short and longer whether up to the monument or along the cliffs. Theres a play park up by the monument too. The tea room along the road has a few bits for shopping but the costcutter in Whithorn is better Read moreand sells coop things too. Roads arent brilliant to get here but it is a lovely little peaceful place and would recommend highly. Hide

Beautiful views from the property very quiet and peaceful area. Lovely walks in the evening on the headland to watch the sunset. Be sure to shop at Newton Stewart on your way for supplies although the village shop stocks the basics .
