    Please see our website www.portpatrick.me.uk for full details

    Built in Edwardian times as a home for the factor of the Dunskey estate and his family,our house has been carefully modernised to a high standard. The six stylish bedrooms are all en suite with either a walk-in shower or a bath/shower. The double rooms have comfortable king-size beds and several of the rooms offer stunning sea views.

    The master bedroom was recently completely refurbished to create a unique suite featuring furniture crafted from reclaimed timber and works by contemporary Scottish artists. Choose to stay in it and you can enjoy not one sea view but two, enjoying views to the south and to the west - even the large en suite bathroom has a lovely outlook. The cosy seating area is the perfect place to relax and take in the scenery or watch TV or a DVD. A well stocked Fairtrade hospitality tray, TV and DVD player are also provided in each of the rooms.

    For breakfast, delicious smoked salmon with scrambled eggs is always available as an alternative to the usual choice of hearty fried items. The traditionally prepared porridge is a firm favourite and you can choose from a wide range of cereals, juices and fruits for starters.

    For a unique breakfast dish, why not try our "Kiwi Special" inspired by our visits to NewZealand?

    Tasty home cooked evening meals are also available  up to five days a week.

    Our gardens or bright and airy conservatory are the perfect places to relax.

    Portpatrick with its beautiful harbour, stunning cliff paths, independent stores and fantastic visitor attractions, is only a short walk away. The area is famed for its gardens, in particular the nearby glorious Logan Botanic Garden. The Mull of Galloway is only a short drive away and has an excellent visitor centre and exhibition at its lighthouse.

    Portpatrick itself has several interesting and unusual gift shops including The Port Pantry which also has a coffee shop above which, in our opinion, serves the best coffee for miles around. Other gift shops include the Lighthouse Pottery which is in the buildings of the old lighthouse and the Smuggler`s Cove which always has a large selection of items on display both inside and out!

    Portpatrick also has a surprisingly large number of places to eat so that guests staying for a week can eat out each night in a different restaurant and still not have visited them all! One of our favourites is The Port Pantry, the gift shop which has a coffee shop above with excellent coffee and home baking. The coffee shop turns into a bistro every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. All food is home made and as it is BYO bottle, the price is very reasonable.

    If you are coming to Scotland for the Ryder Cup. the Homecoming or the Commomwealth Games, why not extend your stay with us in Portpatrick and find out some of what the South West of Scotland has to offer.
