“Practically Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 2 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I have been visiting Port Patrick for about 20 years because it's such a lovely place to be. I would say that the Bait House is without doubt the best place I have stayed. Every aspect of the Bait House is awesome: it's in the best location: the fantastic views of the Irish sea from the back patio and the Harbour and the Port from the front. The House itself is first class! It's very welcoming: the design and interior furnishings and fittings are fabulous.

All in all it's extremely good value for money :)

“heaven”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Have been to Portpatrick many times over the years so we know and love the village very well, but were can I start the bait house is absolutely beautiful a real home away from home very well equipped for a quality holiday.
Th views from the living area which is unusually situated upstairs are breathtaking you can sit and look out onto the village and harbour at one side and look out over to Ireland at the other without moving your seat. The concept of having this living space upstairs allows you to take full advantage of the stunning views and if like me you enjoy people watching its ideal.
Kitchen comes with all modcons .
Beds are incredibly comfortable .
We will defiantly be returning in the future.

This was a beautiful place to stay,the sunsets across the irish sea from the back balcony were stunning.
There are some lovely walks around this area and all the pubs and small shops were with in a stones throw from the Bait house. i think this is one of the best places we have ever stayed and it wont be long till we book again.

“SUPERB”
Reviewed 20 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The Bait house is , in my view, the best located holiday home in Portpatrick.
It is near enough to all the local facilities and far enough away to sit and relax and have a drink by the open patio doors overlooking either the town harbour to the front or the irish sea at the back.
Where else can you do this from under one roof ??
A credit to the owners...it was spotless, fresh and had great feel to it.
I wish it was mine to keep !
Will be going back !
