Portpatrick Holiday Cottage
Cradled at the the end of the Southern Upland Way at the foot of rocky cliffs, Portpatrick looks across 22 miles of the Irish Channel to Donaghdee. The Gulf Stream, flowing into the channel from the north, gives the area a mild climate in which sub-tropical plants and trees flourish. It is, therefore, an ideal base from which to tour the South West, but the countryside surrounding the village also has much to offer. The coastline north and south of Portpatrick is indented with secluded bays and beaches – Morroch Bay, Sandeel Bay, Lairds Bay and perhaps the loveliest of them all, Killantringan.
