The house is lovely with plenty of space in the heart of the village, very enjoyable stay! The photos really don't do this place justice.

“Fantastic home from home!!!! Just what we needed ......”
Reviewed March 1, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our visit was for a solemn reason and yet we had one of the best family holidays ever!!

We had our 4 and 8 yr olds with us alongside two friends. We all loved our rooms, loved the feel of the property and three loos was totally welcome!!!

Sitting in the back garden being overlooked by a 1600's Kirk ruin was such an unexpected treat too.

My son wasn't convinced that he wanted to return to Portpatrick itself, however he was absolutely certain he wanted to go back to the Posthouse!!!!

The staff in the Postoffice were lovely, friendly, helpful and a joy to deal with. The kitchen was well equipped and the lounge cosy and tranquil. The photo's do not do justice to how lovely this place is to live in.

It was a wonderfully restful sanctuary during an emotional weekend and we wouldn't hesitate to return as often as possible....not even a 6 hour drive home has put me off thinking about how soon we can return.

Thankyou for opening such a lovely place up for us to stay in.

“Comfortable, spacious and well equipped, quite noisy with only one way in and out.”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The cottage itself is attached to the post office/shop with only one way in and out through the yard. It is quite a spacious area with good sized bedrooms and bathroom facilities. Across from the local hotel/pub it can be noisy at night and you can hear all that goes on in the shop!! The cottage has everything you need for your stay and it was clean enough. Portpatrick the town is pretty bare so stock up at the Lidle I Stranraer before you arrive, there are two little craft shops along the sea front which are quite marvellous and some of the best sea views around. If its stormy watch out Along the sea front as the wavesco e right over and soak you through, the high light of the our stay for the children!!!

I am glad to hear that you found the cottage well appointed, clean and spacious. Unfortunately the period of your stay coincided with the arrival of the New Year, which generally speaking is rather well celebrated here in Scotland, and can therefore be a bit noisy.

“A true home away from home”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Stayed at the Post House for two nights with friends and had a superb experience, rarely have I come across a holiday home which is so well equipped, there was nothing we found missing! The house accommodated six of us in comfort, the lounge, dining room were comfortable and roomy, showers/bathrooms excellent and especially useful the downstairs bathroom. Lovely courtyard out back with garden furniture and bbq - didn't use it much in November!! Sky TV/dvd/wi fi etc all available. We had a great time despite the weather - there are amazing walks around the harbour and up along the cliff paths. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely home for a holiday, thank you!!

“Perfect place and location , great accommodation first class x”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a great little house for a family to stay in . All rooms were exceptionally cleaned and the accommodation is well stocked prior to entry . We felt that each room was of a good size and all bedding towels etc clean and fresh . Our welcome was friendly and smiley , William greeted us with a big smile and as we were early , offered to show us round personally and leave our luggage if we wanted . Both owners are so helpful during the stay and happy to answer any queries etc . The kids loved the place as it is literally a minute from the beach and all shops . The post office is next door to grab essentials etc. the house is well filled out with dvd , books ,games etc and misc items were placed in the dining room for you to look at and use if needed . Kitchen has all appliances and utensils you could ever need and we did I not need to buy anything at all , all was there ahead for us . Great place great location loved our holiday rental best yet in port Patrick x Fiona and Garry Schulte
