Wonderful period harbourside cottage with magnificent sea views and wood burner, perfect for cosy nights in and a large fully enclosed beautiful mature garden with seating, ideal for al fresco dining.

With its wonderful sea views, this cute harbourside cottage, in the picturesque fishing village of Portpatrick, is the perfect accommodation option for a family or group of friends who want to enjoy the very best of the Dumfries and Galloway coastline with their pups by their side. Sleeping six people over three bedrooms and welcoming two furry friends, this historic cottage offers a beautiful enclosed garden/patio for your pups to play in and a cosy wood burner for them to stretch out and snooze in front of each evening.

 

Step inside this lovely property and you’ll find yourself in a spacious hall that leads to a light and bright comfortable lounge/diner – the perfect place to admire the amazing sea views as you enjoy a group dinner with your loved ones or cosy-up in front of the wood burner with your dogs. Completing the ground floor is a stylish bedroom and a well-equipped kitchen with French doors then lead out into the beautiful fully enclosed garden – a lovely spot for a post-dinner glass of wine as your dogs play on the lawn. Head upstairs to the first floor and you’ll find two lovely bedrooms – both with magnificent sea views – to choose from.

 

Your four-legged friends can run free at Larbrax Beach (6 miles) while you enjoy the views across to Ireland. And just outside the village, you’ll find the Dunskey Estate (0.5 miles). Although your pups are not allowed in the walled garden, there are some lovely walks through the woodlands that take you past lochs and fairy glens. Doggy visitors are also welcome in the estate’s tearoom patio area too.
