About W Russell Bryson

I live in Derbyshire with my wife but I was born and bred in Scotland. We both love Scotland so we decided to buy a holiday cottage there. It has taken a year of hard work and love to refurbish Lochpark Cottage , but we think it has been worthwhile and should you stay there we hope you do to.

W Russell Bryson purchased this cottage in 2013

Why W Russell Bryson chose Dumfries & Galloway

The south West of Scotland has a milder climate due to the gulf stream. The cottage has fantastic views over Loch Ryan yet has shops , restaurants etc within walking distance. The cottage is conveniently situated for exploring other parts of SW Scotland.

What makes this cottage unique

Being in Stranraer you are conveniently situated to visit many places such as Port Patrick, Port William and even a day trip to Ireland as the ferry leaves from just across the loch at Cairnryan

Agnew Park is just across the road from the cottage as is the seafront.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed a super break in the immaculate cottage. A lovely part of the country, our first visit to Stranraer. The welcome pack was indeed most welcome. There is a lot more to see and do around here and if we return, which seems likely, wewould not stay anywhere else.

Was so great and relaxing I could do it all over again

  • 5 of 5

A cosy cottage that's very homely. Ideal for kids and overlooks an activity park. Beautiful coastlines and nearby sandy beach - Ardwell Bay. Lighthouses and other historical places to visit.

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

Am so glad we found this little gem of a house, very central to all tourist areas. The house itself is very comfortable and tastefully decorated with everything you could possibly need. The views of loch Ryan were amazing especially from the upper bedroom. We visited all the surrounding areas and around every corner was an awesome view. Will defo be back.

A fabulous place to stay, we will definitely be back.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week here - with every facility on hand that we needed, a real home from home - even if the stairs are a bit of a challenge! The views are spectacular, it's really central to everything and the town has shops, bars and restaurants to suit every taste. We traveled all over the area and it is stunning - the Stranraer to Ayr costal route totally blew us away. Perhaps some instruction on how to use the heating and DVD player would be helpful - but those are very very minor points! In every other way it's perfect! We will certainly return and were very sorry to leave, even our pooch didn't want to go home. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Super views

  • 4 of 5

Super views across the loch from the first floor lounge and second floor bedroom. Clean and comfortable. Welcome pack upon arrival very handy. Within walking distance to shops and amenities. Watch out for the low ceilings on the stairwells. Some lovely places to visit within reasonable driving distance. Would recommend this cottage.
