I was born in Portpatrick and returned after college and some work experience to set up a pottery workshop with my partner, which we ran for about 10 years. This developed into a a retail craft shop, selling quality craft goods from around the world. I developed the Lighthouse apartment from a store office and workshop just a few yards from my current shop and flat, so am available on site if any problems occur or information is required. Obviously I know Dumfries and Galloway intimately and can offer information and knowledge of the area to our guests.

CHRISTINE CAMPBELL purchased this apartment in 1994

Why CHRISTINE CAMPBELL chose Dumfries & Galloway

I built this property in 1993 as part of my business. I love the area and have lived here virtually for the whole of my working life. It is a quiet and peaceful part of Scotland and not yet fully appreciated. It has much to offer and very beautiful.

Portpatrick is ideal for walking, golfing as well as a centre for wider reaching sightseeing tours - including Belfast (Titanic), the Galloway hills and world famous gardens, historic castles and our local distillery.

What makes this apartment unique

Although in the centre of The village it is a quiet location with stunning views and very comfortable.

Bed linen,towels,electricity,fuel for the wood burning stove and unlimited WI-Fi are provided in the price.

Great Apartment With Great Views

  • 5 of 5

An ideal let for a couple but there is an additonal bed for two more if needed. Has all the crockery you will need along with some basic condiments to start you off. The location does not disappoint - the view from the upstairs lounge is one I could spend many hours looking at. Property is clean and in good order and the owners close by if you need them. Comfortable and quirky - I loved it.

The village is friendly and people will pass the time of day with you. Visited The Port Pantry for light lunch; the Harbour House does a good breakfast and The Crown is very friendly.

Stunning property in a beaufiful location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in Portpatrick. This lovely house is right on the harbour side, two minutes walk from the pubs and with a gorgeous view across the harbour and little beach. Lovely walking locally especially along the coast.

The house was very comfortable and well laid out with all the facilities you'd need. The owners' home and shop is next door and they were friendly and helpful advising us on local walks and even lending us maps.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

classy harbour appartment

  • 5 of 5

This place delivers. Spotless, more than well equipped and tastefully furnished with a log burner to boot. It offers comfort and great views over the harbour, busy pubs and hotels. The owners are very friendly and accomodating despite them being very busy with their pottery business and shop. Its a must visit gem

Quality property with quality and comfort throughout

  • 5 of 5

First impression is a wow factor. The upstairs lounge with the Scottish Douglas fir ceiling and pine floor, great views is amazing! Property was comfortably furnished to a very high standard. Warm and welcoming hosts. Spotless. The owners have thought of every little detail to make things more comfortable for the visitor. Highly recommended

Perfect winter break in this hidden treasure!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent a weekend here in November and we didn't want to leave! The two levels of the apartment are beautifully kitted out with everything you need in the open plan kitchen for dining in or you have a great seafood restaurant right next door. I could easily have spent the whole weekend relaxing in front of the log fire with a book and sipping whiskey. But it is well worth exploring this beautiful part of Scotland. The Mull of Galloway lighthouse is pretty special. This accommodation is very impressive with great views of the bay. Owners Christine and Frank were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this apartment.
