Cottage itself suited our needs perfectly; modern, cosy, comfortable, well equipped and immaculately clean.
Definite things to do in the area:-
Enjoy Port Logan beach!! Visit pretty Portpatrick harbour. Stroll on the deserted beach at Ardwell Bay. Spot seals basking on the rocks from the picnic area just north of Ardwell village. Enjoy lunch at Gallie Craig Coffee House taking in spectacular views of the Mull of Galloway lighthouse. Visit Logan Botanic Gardens and treat yourselves to cake in the café.

A “WOW” on the Web site and a bigger “WOW” on arrival.
An outstanding cottage with all mod cons and very clean.
Thumbs up for the freezer it meant I could pre-cook the dog’s dinners and shove in the freezer only needing to defrost.
The “boys” loved exploring the large garden.
A lovely quiet location and great for exploring that end of the map.
Thanks so much for allowing us to stay, thanks for the welcome pack”.

“Katie McGavigan reviewed Port Logan Holiday Cottage – 5 star
We stayed at Rosebank for a week this summer. The cottage is incredibly well looked after, very clean and really well equipped. It was perfect for us. Denise and Nick were really helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We have 3 children so being across the road from the beach was great and the children cycled around the village for hours. There are very few places where it is safe for young children to have so much freedom. The back garden is a sun trap and very private which is lovely when you want a holiday that means you can get away from it all. The ice cream kiosk along the road was a bonus (open Fri, Sat, Sun). It wasn’t our first visit to the area and won’t be our last”.
Katie, Jonathan, Matthew, Joseph, Rosie.
Guildford 28th July – 4th August 2018.
“Another perfect stay, cottage spotless and welcoming and as always a lovely welcome pack.
We had so much time relaxing, reading and exploring.
Then sunsets on the path past the pier are amazing.
My daughter, partner and their kids came for a day and went snorkelling while we had a swim in the sea, and they all had the best day and didn’t want to leave.
We also explored Kirk Maiden Cemetery and High Slock in our search of our family tree and got lots of information and pictures.
Thank you so much again for sharing this wee piece of Heaven.
See you again for the New Year.”

Visit one make sure it’s Glenwhan.
Thank you Nick & Denise for providing such a wonderful cottage and all the added extras
welcome pack : flowers all very much appreciated .

“May I say Another wonderful week at your cottage, enhanced by the weather !!
how thoughtful you are with little touches, like tissues and flowers.
Simon says thanks for the fork (Simon is a keen fisherman and needed a fork to dig bait).
May I just say, perhaps some fold up chairs would be useful for us “Oldies” who can’t walk well !
Regular guest here again,
Simon and Jacqui love Port Logan and will be back for a month towards the end of the year.
Simon has just had another Birthday but we don’t consider you to be “oldies”.
We do appreciate the size of our garden so we have just ordered another picnic bench and table for the lower area.
As with your suggestion about a bait digging fork for fishing we always respond.”

“I saw Rosebank Cottage on the internet and thought it looked just right,
a place to stay for several weeks for some well-earned respite.
In I came to a light, airy space as clean and tidy as can be, beautifully maintained garden and right next to the sea.
Villagers made me feel at home local ice cream is a must (https://www.visitsouthwestscotland.com/attractions/cool-licks-and-hot-drinks-ltd/ )
Rosebank held firm and true when storm Horace began to gust.
A knees up at the hoolie I stayed up past eleven, the clean sea air and walks with dog this is my idea of heaven..
So sadly now it’s time for home thank you Denise & Nick, your cottage is a perfect place and leaving makes me sick ! xxxx”

“It has been a pleasure to rediscover Bonny Dumfries and Galloway. Our first visit was in 1968 with our 3 young daughters, and again in 2007 on our 49th wedding anniversary. Our visit this week has been no less magical. We have holidayed in cottages all over the UK but Rosebank is by far the best, extended and renovated without loosing it’s charm and comfort. The welcome pack was excellent far above our expectations !

“This is a beautiful holiday cottage with fabulous gardens for the dogs. The cottage has everything we could have wished for and more. Thanks very much for the welcome pack which was very much appreciated. Fabulous to just walk across the road to the beach too.
We found a lovely hotel called Tigh na Mara Hotel just 5 miles away in Sandhead (dogs allowed in bar area), meal and service was lovely. We also went into Stranraer to get shopping and cheekily went into the Royal cafe on Castle Street, and asked if we could take the dogs in and they were allowed. We have enjoyed this late break with the dogs so much we have already booked again. Thanks so much Denise & Nick”.
