Fantastic big house

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 8 adults and 6 children staying in this fabulous big house. Plenty of room for everyone and plenty of crockery, pots, pans, towels etc. The water pressure is awful tho and as a result trying to have a warm shower was out of the question but thankfully the house had a bath. There is no mobile reception or wifi at the house (not that it bothered us). There is a fabulous cozy pub 4 doors along which does great food at very reasonable prices. It advertises wifi but not one of us could connect. The house had a tv in the main living room and there was a small tv with built in dvd so our children were able to watch movies for a while. The kitchen has a dishwasher and 2 ovens, an elctric hob, kettle cand toaster -- its very well equipped.

Overall a great house for a large family gathering but just dont plan on being able to have a warm shower in the morning.

Owner's Response: Hi Lynda Thanks for your review. Sorry about the water pressure -unfortunately that is the whole street not just Rowallan. Shame about the Wifi at the pub but most people usually manage it so I can only guess there was something wrong with it while you stayed. Anne Beaumont

Our family weekend treat!!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Bladnoch. The house was just as advertised and had all we needed, plenty of space, room for the grandchildren to play upstairs with their games and give us at least a little adult time. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking with a good sized fridge freezer.

The Bladnoch Inn was such a treat with its log fire and friendly bar staff - food was great. We enjoyed a Saturday afternoon down to Isle of Whithorn and also a visit to the bookstore in Wigtown.

Thoroughly recommend a stay - just wish we could have made it a few days longer!!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Row allan house is a hidden gem in a beautiful rural area, and the house retains its period features. We were very surprised at how spacious the property was and the children loved the attic rooms. The listing description is accurate regarding the lay out and surrounding area. The owners provided excellent customer service from initial enquiries ensuring our stay was home from home and more. This property was definitely value for money and we are more than happy to use again. We would have no reservations about recommending this property to family and friends. The reason we chose row allan house was because I originate from the area and wanted somewhere central to enable us to visit family and many attractions that are available and more importantly it was suitable for large families including children with disabilities.
