A WONDERFUL FIND IN OWL COTE
An amazing house in an absolutely stunning location. We enjoyed lots of forest walks with 2 teenagers!! Had a lovely night by the wood burning fire watching the waves soar along the beach.
A much needed family time enjoyed by all.
Another Great week!
Another great week at Owl Cote, quiet without all the kids, but we managed !!! Saidie (the cockapoo!) enjoyed chasing the rabbits and swimming in the sea.
A lovely chillax end to the summer !

4th Visit to Owl Cote
Our 4th visit to Owl Cote but many more years visiting Carrick. Weather has been fantastic and Carrick at its best! Lots of BBQ’s and walks on the beach and even a swim.
Carrick is such a brilliant place with so many family memories. We will be back!

A WONDERFUL PLACE.
A wonderful place to wind down and relax. It is our 9th holiday to Carrick shore and it wont be our last. Owl Cote has been very comfortable and inviting. We’ve re-connected as a family and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for sharing this place for us all to enjoy. The weather has been wonderful – crisp, sunny and ideal for long walks. The fire has been our friend at night!

A BEAUTIFUL SURPRISE!
Well – this was a beautiful surprise as we needed to get away from it all, and recharge. We REALLY did this here and what a stunning, restful and homely place to try and forget the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. It was our first time but it was our Sister and her Husband’s 5th visit. We will be back without a doubt. Thank

SNOOZED AND RESTED!
Despite mixed weather and as its November, its much cooler than the Summer – but we totally snoozed and rested and totally relaxed at Owl Cote.
I live near Stirling and usually head North = but Owl Cote will entice me back South for the Winter!

WE LOVE THIS PLACE!
Our 3rd visit and not our last. We love this place and already have created many wonderful memories of time spent together – and with our family.
Looking forward to returning and enjoying the view, and the lemon drizzle cake with the wine!
