About the property

Cottage in Portpatrick, nr. Stranraer, Dumfries And Galloway, Scotland - Superb Modern Holiday Cottage With Character

Four bedroom cottage with bathroom benefiting from a shower and bath. To the ground floor there is a dining kitchen, sitting room and additional WC. A fully refurbished holiday cottage that has in recent times been refurbished to the highest possible standard. The house benefits from all modern amenities yet retains all of its original character and charm. The cottage is steeped in history but benefits from all modern amenities including central heating, double glazing, dishwasher, DVD player to name but a few. The house it located in the heart of the village but occupies a quiet position and is within a very short walk of the seafront, beach, local shops and restaurants etc. To the rear is a large landscaped garden with unrivalled elevated decking that has stunning views over the village towards Ireland. There are also grassed areas and a summerhouse that allows the views to be enjoyed year round.

Great cottage in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights for my partners birthday. Wasn't disappointed. Lovely clean and comfortable cottage with everything we needed for our stay. Ideal cottage for a family. There was only the two of us with our two dogs and we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location of Portpatrick was perfect. Good walking from the door made sure our dogs were suitably tired so we could enjoy a couple of quiet drinks in The Crown (dog friendly) before heading back to enjoy a night in front of the fire in the Potters Rest. We ate at The Crown on 2 of the 4 nights we stayed and the food was exceptional. I would definitely stay again at the Potters Rest. The only reason I haven't rated 5 star is I can see the steepness of the back garden being a problem for elderly folk or young children as the decking is very slippy when wet. Having said that in the summer time the garden would be a great asset as the views from the top are outstanding.

Communication with the owner Hilary was easy and received prompt replies to any queries.
