Enjoying a wonderful setting with views over the picturesque town centre, harbour and out to open sea, these spacious, detached houses offer an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. No 4 (UK5569) has stunning views over the sea from most windows, and also from the hot tub. No 7 (UK5736) is situated next door to No 8 (UK5770) and has a spacious interior with pool table and hot tub to the rear, while No 8 also with a hot tub, has a first floor living room with pool table, bar and French doors leading out to the balcony.
Portpatrick is perfectly placed to enjoy the challenging uplands of the Galloway Hills, to the more gentle seaside trails, rolling moors and dramatic cliff-top walks. The Southern Upland Way passing close by presents the ideal focus from which to enjoy the many and varied shorter walks within the region. The dramatic scenery is home to a rich company of flora and fauna, with many unusual species including pine martens, golden eagle, ospreys, red deer, red squirrels and the natterjack toad.
The area has many renowned gardens to visit including the Botanic Gardens in Port Logan. Wigtown, Scotland’s official book town, is home to a charming gallery, and excellent cafés, and is located only a few miles from Bladnoch Distillery, where visitors can sample the local malt whisky. For fishermen the area offers a wide variety of opportunities including sea fishing from Portpatrick, and both trout and salmon fishing close by. Other country pursuits are available including shooting and riding. Golfers will feel equally at home in this area with Stranraer, Portpatrick and Lagganmore golf courses within a 20-minute drive, while Turnberry, with its world famous course is only 45 minutes away and also offers a spa, off road driving, quad biking activities and restaurant facilities. For the more active there are numerous cycle routes set out in stunning forestry commission surroundings, and cycle hire is available at these centres. Sailing is available via the local marina, and for those happy to travel slightly further afield there is the Galloway Sailing Centre, where visitors can also try windsurfing, canoeing and power boating. From Stranraer, 6½ miles, there is the ferry service to Ireland for a day trip. Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.
4 Military Drive (UK5569) can be booked together with 7 Military Drive (UK5736) and 8 Military Drive (UK5570) to accommodate up to 32 guests.

Overall the accommodation was very good in both comfort and facilities. There were a few small issues which you'd expect with a high occupancy older property but nothing that would be enough to spoil a short break. It's a spacious property, and the hot tub was a welcome addition. Its location was ideal for walks into the local amenities and I would happily return for another break here, specifically requesting this property.

We had a excellent stay at No4 Military Drive, some definite maintenance issues, however these did not spoil our stay, we would recommend anyone to give it a go. Excellent value for money.

When I booked I believed it was a house with hot tub and pool table (no pool table in No 4) On arrival several bins lined up at the front, some overflowing. None emptied whilst we stayed there (FYI there was no strike action in the area at this time) Toilet handle in GF wet room was hanging off Carpets and arms on sofas and chairs dirty Supervised 12 year old sliced toe open in hot tub Advertised as 2 king sized beds on GF but one was only a double No fire extinguisher or fire blankets in kitchen Kitchen freezer unusable due to being completely frosted, door unable to fully close 1 and a half days without hot water (fixed) No information pack, no games/books etc Welcome ‘pack’ of cakes and potato scones with a small amount of instant coffee and a few teabags but no milk or sugar? Garden not enclosed but open/unfenced on one side to public footpath Stains on ceilings from previous leaks Hob in kitchen very hit and miss with pans provided 2 en-suite shower doors falling off When the owner came round to check re the hot water problem he took the opportunity to try and offer direct booking ‘next time’ to one of his properties in the area. He mentioned a discount for direct booking as he only gets 80% of the cost because he has to pay the booking company 20%!!
