Property is located in the harbour area which is central to all local amenities. A home from home, perfect for a family break or up to 3 couples. Booking and key collection was hassle free via web site www.thebaithouse.co.uk
All Pubs and rest within 2 min walking dist.

“Excellent! Views to die for! Best situated House in the Port!”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Spent a wonderful week at the Bait House with my wife and 2 young children (2&3), house is situated on the picturesque Harbour overlooking sailing yachts and fishing charters at the front and uninterupted views all the way to Ireland at rear. Upstairs good sized open plan living room (TV, freeview, bluray), kitchen (fully fitted), diningroom... also Juilet Balconies front and rear, good sized third bedroom also upstairs. Downstairs Master bed with ensuite (shower, sink & loo), large second bedroom and Large bathroom ( shower, bath etc), hallway and coat racks. House is very well furnished, beds very comfortable, very clean. Situated close to play park for children. Plenty of restaraunts and hostelries within 1min walk. Ideal location for exploring Dumfries and Galloway, 2 local golf courses for those so inclined. We had a great time and girls really liked their "Holiday House Beds", stairs are a little steep, but our two had no problem with them...we took a stairgate with us, but removed it after day 2 as did not present a problem.

“An absolute delight!”
Reviewed 6 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

The Bait House is in a stunning location in Portpatrick, with the harbour one side and the open sea on the other side of the house. It is the perfect combination of being an old property with character on the outside, totally modernised inside into a bright, warm and welcoming holiday home.
With two large bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor and the living areas, kitchen and third bedroom upstairs it was quirky but made perfect sense.
Liaising with the owner was easy and beneficial for 2 minor maintenance issues which were acted upon immediately.
Its just minutes walk from hotels, shops and coastal walks and set back from the main thoroughfare.
We will very happily recommend this property and hope to return sometime later this year.
