    This spacious detached villa is situated in a quiet area on the edge of the bustling harbour town of Stranraer. Situated at the head of Loch Ryan, it’s the gateway to the Rhinns of Galloway and for more than a century was a busy ferry port for services between south west Scotland and Northern Ireland. The town has many shops and there are plenty of places to dine out too. The town’s main attraction is the Castle of St. John, a ruined four-storey tower house built around 1500, which sits on a green in the main street, and there are several eye-catching artworks in the area surrounding the castle with Stranraer Museum in the old town hall. Close by are Castle Kennedy Gardens, with the castle, two lochs, a giant lily pond and an avenue of monkey puzzle trees. Logan Botanic Garden sits 13 miles south of the town and is home to exotic ferns and palms and boasts a beautiful walled garden.

    The area is steeped in history and the landscape diverse, a haven for artists, birdwatchers and walkers. Portpatrick, 8 miles, lies at the start of the Southern Upland Way, one of Scotland’s acclaimed long distance footpaths, covering 212 miles to Cockburnspath on the east coast. The Mull of Galloway with its grass roofed visitor centre is Scotland’s most southerly point with amazing views of Ireland, England, Isle of Man and Scotland. Lucky visitors may spot seals and minke whales and will most certainly see a host of seabirds. Take the high speed ferry to Ireland for a spot of sightseeing or a shopping trip to Belfast. Ideal for customers looking to make the most of the kitchen, there is a large supermarket just 500 yards away. Let the children run and play in nearby Stair Park, just a short walk away, recently refurbished so that all facilities are adapted for use by children with disabilities including toilets and changing block. Pony trekking is available locally. Beach 500 yards. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    Excellent break at a fantastic location. Property was spotlessly clean with all the necessary equipment for larger groups. Host was friendly and welcoming with good communication for arrival and check out. Ample keys for the group. Definitely on the list to return

    What can you say other than WOW what an exceptional property. It is so deceiving from the outside what to expect when you walk through the front door. You are not disappointed. Everything is thought of. The food hamper was an amazing surprise and cream cake in the fridge too. The hot tub was fabulous and used numerous times. Nothing was too much trouble for Maureen. Thank you Maureen we had a fantastic family holiday. Jackie and Chris and family. (Stayed 25th May)

    Kinvara is a first class holiday home the best equipped that we have stayed in to date. The house was perfect for our family of 11, 6 adults and 5 children. We were warmly greeted by Maureen who had an inviting coal fire lit for our arrival. She also provided a most generous welcome pack which was appreciated by everyone, even the carrots to feed the horses! We all enjoyed the hot tub and the children loved the freedom the secure garden provided for them - they also loved the lights at night. The games room was also popular as was the super playpark a few minutes from the house. The close proximity of the Cairnryan Ferry Terminal provided us with the opportunity to spend the day in Belfast and visit the Titanic Exhibition - great experience! Thanks for an enjoyable week Maureen, we would certainly recommend Kinvara for a holiday.

    Had an absolutely fantastic time at Kinvara, couldn’t fault a thing, spacious and peaceful, loved by all members of our family. Maureen goes above and beyond to welcome guests and provides a beautiful welcome basket and a big basket of carrots to feed the horses. We can’t rate Kinvara highly enough. Thank you Maureen for making our weekend extra special, we will definitely be back

    This holiday home was exzactly the break that our family needed. My mum came to Stranraer from Devon and we had an early Christmas together with the grandchildren. The owner went above and beyond to make our stay the best, she was a pleasure to meet and showed us how to start the fair and get the kindling going, showed us how to work the amenities inc the hot tub and provided all the little bits you can forget like bathroom supplies. The house is stunning, the views are stunning and if you are lucky you will get an early morning visit from the horses in the paddock behind the house (apples and carrots provided). I would absolutely book to stay here again. Thankyou so much to the owner and her husband for making our break the most enjoyable and relaxing break you possibly can have in December! X

    The house was perfect for our family break. It had everything we needed and more! The most well equipt house we've ever stayed in! The owner Maureen left us an amazing hamper and the coal fire was on for us arriving. The rooms were clean and homely. The kids loved the games rooms and feeding the horses in the field at the bottom of the beautiful garden. The hot tub was also a lovely bonus. Would definitely recommend this holiday home and we will certainly be back soon.
