Lovely cottage only yards away from the beach. Perfectly located for pubs restaurants and walks. Been recently renovated with open fire or CH. Very cosy whether winter or summer. Bedrooms very comfortable and kitchen big enough for 8 round the table. Back garden is a bit of a steep climb but we'll worth it for the unique views of the...

The house is tastefully decorated, and has everything one needs , even a dishwasher. Portpatrick is a lovely village with plenty of eating places to...

This little cottage does have some good points. It is immaculately clean, has comfortable beds but and is well equipped in the kitchen. However there are so many bad points. Firstly the parking.

Needing accommodation for a local wedding, this cottage ticked all the boxes - spacious, clean and very well equipped and just a hop and skip from the church. The added bonus was the bottle of wine and chocs - so thoughtful and much appreciated. If only the weather had been kinder to us , this would have been a perfect...

We recently have returned from this lovely cottage. Its is perfect , in the centre of the village and has recently been completely refurbished to a very high standard. It does however retain its original character. The garden has a superb decking area with stunning views over the village.

We booked a weekend at The Potters Rest in Portpatrick and were slightly unsure what to expect. On our arrival we were very pleasantly suprised. The cottage has been finished to a very high standard but still has kept all of its charm. The village has a number of beautiful pubs and very good restaurants and a weekend was not...
