Situated just 3 miles from Stranraer in a beautiful position on the Rhins of Galloway peninsula, Quarter Acre House makes a great base for a family holiday.

Situated on the north west coast of the beautiful Rhins of Galloway peninsula, 3 miles from Stranraer, this stunning detached property, with a private hot tub, enjoys panoramic views over the rolling countryside and across Lochryan Bay. Ferries pass daily on the 90-minute crossing from Stranraer’s ferry port. Visit Dally Bay where seals and porpoises can be spotted. Walk down to the sea to the shore on Loch Ryan and around Wig Bay and The Scar – a circular walk along Loch Ryan shoreline and back into the village of Kirkcolm. The Scar, a sandbank which juts out into Loch Ryan, is home to one of the largest colonies of nesting migrant terns in the region. From a historical perspective, during the Second World War, Wig Bay was used as a base for the flying Catalina boats – evidence can be seen of this on a walk along the bay. The Galloway coastline offers an abundance of sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore. Walking, golf, sea and freshwater fishing, pony trekking, watersports and cycling are all available nearby. There are several beautiful gardens including Logan Botanical which benefits from the mild climate of the Gulf Stream. Beach ½ mile. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    Super welcome pack. Lovely views. Lots to do locally if you like a good wander with the pooch then come back and chill out under the stars in the hot tub. Recommend port Patrick.

    Quarter Acre House was booked as a surprise by my wife Carol for our Wedding Anniversary and the only word I can use is superb. The house is in a spectacular location overlooking the water and we really didn't want to leave at the end of the week. The house itself is modern, has loads of space and was spotless. I cant recommend this holiday home enough and we will be returning as soon as we can.

    loved our stay but on reflection too quiet .We like to have a walk in the evening to a local pub there is nothing in walking distance and very remote .We enjoyed visiting Portpatrick and Girvan . The cottage is lovely and comfortable and we felt at home.

    Robert was great, called each afternoon to check the hotub, very friendly. The cottage was an oasis of calm with excellent WiFi if needed, loads of space to relax, smart TV in the sitting room if needed. Everything you could want and more. Highly recommended.

    We had the MOST wonderful week at Quarter Acre House. The property is stunning and the location itself is perfect overlooking Stranraer/Cairnryan Harbour. The hot tub and garden were wonderful for both us and the kids. Close by is Portpatrick which is the perfect seaside resort. Stranraer was a little lacking in terms of eating possibilities, but Portpatick picks up the slack in this regard. Would I stay here again? Without a doubt!!! Beautiful house!
