“What a lovely place to stay!”

person found this review helpful

My two children (14 and 12) and I stayed in The Post House for one week. The cottage is extremely comfortable and well-equipped, and has a great location about one hundred yards from the shore. The owners run the Post Office and general store next door and are very helpful but unobtrusive.
The only drawback is that the back yard is small and not particularly attractive to sit in and enjoy a quiet coffee.
We have stayed in Portpatrick on numerous occasions and have experience of several different hotels, guest houses and static caravans. Our unanimous conclusion is that we would very happily return to The Post House, and may well do so next year!

“Excellent accommodation and great location.”
Reviewed February 21, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We have been visiting Portpatrick for 20+ years and this was our first time staying in self catering accommodation. We found the standard of the Post House to be top class and comfortable. We didn't take much advantage of the full range of kitchen equipment, but can say anything we could have wanted was there, had we been inclined to actually do any "self catering". There was even a BBQ in the little patio. Comfy and warm, it was a great base to come into from the February weather, and as it's located on the Main Street, really handy for the fab pubs and harbour side of the village. We were especially pleased with the additional sets of keys so we could come and go in any combinations. We are agreed that we will be more than happy to make the Post House our regular base now.

“Highly recommended holiday cottage”
Reviewed January 3, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Normally a caravan goer to Portpatrick this was my 1st time in this holiday cottage. Just returned from spending the New Year here with family friends and a fantastic time was had by all - couldn't have asked for better. From the outside the cottage looks small but WOW can looks be deceiving - extremely spacious inside!! Immaculately clean, very well presented and very well equipped which comfortably slept all 8 of us. Central to all local amenities and only a 2 minute walk to the beach and harbour. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for excellent accommodation in the beautifully picturesque Portpatrick.
