  • "Perfect choice for my family, spacious for our little ones, we enjoyed cooking in this well equiped kitchen, it just had everylittle thing needed and every big thing as well, loved everything about this lovely house!"

  • "Our first impressions when we walked through the door were “what a beautiful house”."

    Very spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean, bedding was fresh and crisp, very well equipped kitchen and the whole property was cosy and warm. The views are amazing and change every day depending on the weather with plenty of walks from the door. The friendly owner sorted out a couple of minor problems we had straight away which was much appreciated. They left a very generous welcome pack for us including; cheese, wine, butter, milk, pickle, Irish bread and fresh flowers. Lots of information for the local area was provided. The property is remote making it quiet and peaceful but you can’t just pop to the shop if you forget something, so you need a good memory (or shopping list!)

  • "A wonderful property with spectacular views."

    The Lodge is very well appointed with lots of lovely, homely touches. The bedrooms and public rooms are very comfortable, and our party loved spending time looking out on the sheep and cows right outside! We walked to the nearby lighthouse which is a gentle, family friendly walk. Lots of great things to see in the area (a visit to Sandhead highly recommended), and Corsewell Castle Farm Lodges are a fantastic base for a stay in the area. Thank you!

  • "We had an excellent stay in this beautiful house (Lodge 1) with the most spectacular views out to sea."

    The property is isolated but this is what gives it the wow factor. Yes you have to travel to visit various places but then you return to the peace and tranquility of the Lodge. The property is well equipped with a nice welcome pack, the homemade soda bread was delicious. We were a group of 4 adults and 3 children. If you want visitor attractions on your doorstep then this is probably not for you but if you want a nice house to stay in set in spectacular scenery with the best sea views then this is the one!

    Wouldn’t recommend the Lighthouse for drinks or lunch unfortunately. The views were amazing and the house was extremely comfortable. Definitely worth a day trip to Arran on the ferry and castle Kennedy gardens was amazing.

  • "Fabulous property which was well prepared with lovely welcome pack of cheese butter, milk, cake and tea and coffee."

    This is a working farm site so just be a little careful of your speed when entering and leaving the site. One of the bedrooms unusable due to water ingress but we were 3 couples and so plenty of bedrooms which were light , airy and nicely warm. Location superb wit a great view on clear days over to Northern I reland. Absolutely would stay here agaain and recommend to Sykes clients. Didn't want to go home on last day....didn't see owners but we didn't need to as everything was perfect.

    Just a wee suggestion to have a slip mat and a grab rail for the shower downstairs which would be useful for the elderly who may use the ensuite room downstairs. Everything else perfect and we loved the wee extras such as the food items left. We only wish we could have stayed longer! Many thanks!

    We had the best time at Corsewall Castle Lodge. 8 of us stayed here ranging from 4 years old to 74 and it was perfect for all of us. There was everything you could possibly need and so much space. The beds were comfortable and it was cleaned to a very high standard. Beautiful coastal walks and the scenery is amazing. Shops are just a short drive away too. We will definitely be booking this lodge again.

    So many lovely welcome touches left for us including gorgeous homemade bread and our kids loved the rocky road! The house is so spacious, the beds and sofa super comfy and the kitchen well equipt but the best thing has to be the views. They are even better than the pictures show, and every window has something lovely to look at. We loved watching the cows as much as we did the ferries! We really didn't want to go home at the end of the week, and would love to come back again some day.

    The house itself is immaculate and beautifully decorated and furnished. All the rooms are spacious but very cosy. The views across the sea, to the light house and over to Ireland and Kintyre are magnificent. Being surrounded by the grazing animals added to the feeling of being in the heart of the countryside. Everyone we met was very friendly and kind. We stayed relaxing at the house for much of the time because we felt so at home. Other days we played golf and visited the pretty seaside village of Portpatrick. Had a wonderful afternoon on the stunning Lady Bay beach which is close by. Fabulous scenery and wildlife all over the area. Cannot recommend this property highly enough if you want super accommodation in a relaxing and peaceful setting.
