“Absolutely Fabulous”

Just returned from a long weekend at the Bait House. The house was so comfortable and welcoming we didn't want to come home! The views from the property were spectacular. We will definitely be back.

“Ryder Cup weekend perfection”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Long weekend away with friends requiring golf, food, entertainment and somewhere to sleep. Found everything in Portpatrick with great places to eat and drink and near perfect accomodation in the Bait House, the only thing missing was room service. Spacious rooms, immaculate and views to keep you entertained with the living space on the top floor affording you views across the harbour on one side and the sea on the other.

“I must go down to the sea's again,to the lonely sea and the sky”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The Bait House has a superb location, almost between the sea and the sky. Would like to stay in winter to watch the stormy sea's. Cottage was very comfortable. Bed's were lovely. Kitchen well equipped. Owner exceptionally helpful. We felt Portpatrick was very friendly and hospitable.

“Great Accommodation in a superb location”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My partner and I, with our teenage daughters, spent 6 six nights at the Bait House. It's location is unbeatable. From the large open plan lounge/kitchen/diner you have views of the harbour on one side and the open sea on the other. Both metres from the front door.
It was my first time in the area, whereas my partner has family not too far away. A great holiday, I'm sure we will be back.

“What a fabulous house - beautifully restored and thoroughly equipped...”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Spent four days at the house with my husband and fifteen year old son. Had a great time - I used to holiday in Portpatrick as a child, so know the area well. Would wholly recommend The Bait House as a great base.
