All of our self catering cottages come with fully equipped kitchens, but we know that everyone deserves at least one night off, especially on their holidays. We have added a selection of local restaurants and cafes to the list and map below. Please feel free to ask us about any of the local establishments, listed or not.

  • The Blue Peter Pub in Kirkcolm is very handy for the cottages.  Under new ownership, the pub serves good pub grub and also does great take away fish and chips – a ‘must eat’ while on holiday by the coast!
  • Campbell’s which serves superb seafood is our favourite in Portpatrick and comes highly recommended
  • Tigh na Mara in Sandhead has an extensive menu and is reasonably priced
  • Michelin listed Knockinaam Lodge near Portpatrick is unrivalled in the area
  • Glenapp Castle offers a first class fine dining experience and is also Michelin listed
  • The Old Colfin Creamery – a fabulous cafe and bistro just outside Portpatrick, which is open for dinner on Friday and Saturdays
  • The Fig and Olive – a wonderful cafe in Stranraer, which serves excellent lunches and baking and brings a touch of Oz to south west Scotland.
  • Wildings – well worth the hour’s drive up the coast to Maidens up the Ayrshire coast
  • The Bay House Restaurant – recently refurbished – offers quality food with great views up Loch Ryan and over Corsewall Estate
