“Fabulous house, fabulous location. Who could ask for anything more?”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We've been coming to Scotland for 13 years, but The Bait House immediately became our favourite place to stay. Beautifully outfitted for comfort and relaxation, this is a true gem. The owners have given much thought to creating it & we loved everything about it. The views from every window, with the harbour in front and the Irish Sea in back were delightful-busy in day and quiet at night. Not only was the house itself great, the location was great as well. We will recommend The Bait House to anyone interested in excellent accommodations in a charming town (Portpatrick). We wish we had rented it for the summer rather than only one week.

“Ticks all the right boxes”
Reviewed 17 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We struck lucky in not only selecting Portpatrick as our holiday destination (a new area for us!), but also Bait House.
The area is scenic with plenty to see, especially gardens, and the light traffic made travelling a delight. The town is clean and picturesque based around an interesting harbour, and there's a good choice of places to eat.
The house is spacious, well stocked with everything we needed (a small glitch was quickly rectified) and the views from both front and rear windows were delightful, a real bonus.
Ease of communication with the owner was first class

“Lovely house in a great location”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We would thoroughly recommend the Bait House as a base for a holiday in Portpatrick, with a great position which offers lovely views of the village and harbour. There's lots to explore in the area and the village itself provides good pubs, restaurants and shops and a friendly relaxing atmosphere - regular visitors from Ireland and the Isle of Man testify to Portpatrick's appeal as a favourite holiday destination.

“Fantastic property”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed in the house for new year. We have visited the Port many times and it's simply fantastic. The Bait House was also a fabulous property - well worth a visit. Not stayed there in summer but with the views across the Irish Sea it will be superb.
The Port is fantastic and so is The Bait House.

“Best place to stay in Portpatrick!”
Reviewed 24 May 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We had a wonderful holiday at The Bait House. The views from the house are stunning, the decor and ambience is superb and booking was very way. It was a pleasure to do business with the owners. Portpatrick is a hidden gem with beautiful walks and a great selection of eating places- we'll be returning!
