Portpatrick, Dumfries & Galloway
A luxurious, village church on Scotland’s undiscovered coastline…far off the beaten track amongst picture-perfect landscapes…
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
Soak up the hidden secrets of Scotland’s undiscovered beauty, at this restored, period church in the heart of Portpatrick village. Huddled off the beaten track on Scotland’s south-westerly tip, The Old Church is a luxurious home amongst picture-perfect landscapes. Wander along the pretty, village harbour-front, or through its quaint, huddled streets, or out across the crumbling cliffs to the windswept, sandy beaches.
The Old Church Portpatrick is a rare, little treasure that blends the comforts of modern living with a unique, local heritage. Once a Victorian Free Church at the hub of the village, it is now an impressive home for groups of 10-13 people. Behind its iconic façade lie stylish interiors, finished with beautiful original features and an array of sophisticated furnishings. Expect chic, en-suite bedrooms and massive social spaces, scattered with handpicked antiques and gothic touches.
The first-floor living area is a vast open space that has high, vaulted ceilings with restored Cruck A-frames. A rose stained glass window steals centre stage and is complimented by crisp white walls and honey-coloured floorboards. Its dual aspect windows flood the room with light and illuminate the refined leather sofas and classic, church furniture. There’s a professional kitchen island and a large, feasting table, along with a double-sided wood burner and vintage pool table. Drink whisky at the bar or catch up on your favourite shows, making use of the traditional board games or hi-tech sound system.
Downstairs, you’ll find five plush double bedrooms finished with sumptuous king-size beds and deluxe en-suite bathrooms. There’s underfloor heating to keep you cosy and warm, along with designer bedding and thick, fluffy towels. Slip between the sheets and admire the fusion of old and new, with an array of antique dressers, contemporary designs and flat-screen TV’s. Three of the tranquil bedrooms even have additional daybeds, making this the perfect home for up to 10 adults and 3 kids.
After a peaceful night’s sleep, you can head out to explore, discovering Portpatrick village and the Dumfries and Galloway shores. Stroll along the sea-front promenade and or out along the cliffs, stopping off at the sweeping sands of Lairds and Sandeel Bay. The mysterious Dunskey Castle is also well worth a visit, and can be followed by rugged, country walks and a day on the golf course. For a more relaxed escape, treat yourself to lunch at the harbour-front, where you’ll find a handful of local pubs and traditional restaurants.
There is regular live music at a number of pubs in the village.
