Description

This cosy little, terraced cottage is located right in the heart of the pretty coastal village of Portpatrick, rightly regarded throughout the Dumfries & Galloway region as the ’jewel in the crown’. A particular nice feature of this property is the lovely sun room which is also used as an additional dinning area - a lovely spot to plan the day ahead over a leisurely breakfast. Guests will also appreciate the spacious bathroom and lovely corner bath. Portside Cottage can accommodate up to five guests and is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful corner of Scotland. Portpatrick itself is both charming and unspoilt and on clear days the views over the Irish Sea are spectacular. The village has a putting green and bowling green and fisherman can charter a boat in the bustling little harbour. Portpatrick hosts the annual Lifeboat Week and the Folk Festival and both are usually very popular. This tranquil region enjoys a mild climate due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream evidenced by the lovely palm trees that grow here and the abundance of public gardens with their amazing collection of semi tropical plants. The Logan Botanic Gardens for example, located near Port Logan, has a stunning collection of weird and exotic plants. As a holiday destination Dumfries & Galloway has so much to offer to visitors of all ages and tastes. Walkers, both serious and recreational, for example, are spoilt for choice and may be keen to sample stretches of Scotland’s longest coast to coast walk which has Portpatrick as its starting point. The beach at Killantringan is beautiful and just the ticket for lazy days and beach barbecues. Further inland Laggan Outdoor offers the chance to try the UK’s longest zip wire as well as the increasingly popular mountain balling - just perfect for that adrenalin rush! There are golf courses galore in the region such as the 9 and 18 hole courses in Portpatrick, which have the added bonus of spectacular views. For a day out with a difference why not take the ferry from Cairn Ryan to Belfast and sample its shopping and city amenities.
