    “The apartment has everything we need for a lovely, relaxing stay.”

    There were lots of thoughtful little things, like flannels and bathroom products, DVDs and games and even a note pad for shopping lists, which made us feel really welcome. The wine, treats (for us and our dog) and milk waiting for us were a lovely gesture we really appreciated. The apartment is decorated to a very high standard and feels really opulent.

    There were lots of thoughtful little things, like flannels and bathroom products, DVDs and games and even a note pad for shopping lists, which made us feel really welcome. The wine, treats (for us and our dog) and milk waiting for us were a lovely gesture we really appreciated. The apartment is decorated to a very high standard and feels really opulent. The location is a drive from any shop but this makes it peaceful and, while the gardens are really nice, we enjoyed walking along the adjacent forestry track with our dog. Glenwhan Gardens is within walking distance but we didn't get round to it as we were visiting some of the many beaches in Galloway along with Port William, Kirkcudbright and Stranraer itself. The Covid safe measures in place at the apartment made us feel relaxed; from the hand gel outside the door, inside the door and another bottle on the hall table to the measures taken to safely remove all the towels, oven gloves and bedding (including the quilt and mattress topper). The owners have really gone above and beyond and were politely in contact to make sure we were OK. Obviously we will recommend Butler's Gait to our friends and family and look forward to booking again.

About the location

STRANRAER

Lochans 3 miles; Portpatrick 8 miles; Newton Stewart 25 miles.

Stranraer (7 miles) has all the facilities you could need and you can also visit the numerous gardens close by such as Castle Kennedy, Dunskey and if you travel south towards the Mull of Galloway, Logan Botanic gardens. You will find a good choice of restaurants from fine dining, excellent sea food and good pub grub within easy reach. In the centre of Stranraer sits the Castle of St John which is well worth a visit. For the more adventurous, a day trip as a foot passenger to Belfast from Cairnryan just north of Stranraer, where you can simply take in the shops restaurants and traditional pubs or you can visit the excellent Titanic exhibition.
