About this listing
A stylish New England clapper board style wooden lodge for magnificent sea views, open plan kitchen and the Portpatrick Golf Course on your doorstep. Stylishly refurbished throughout, Cedar Lodge offers a luxury stay and relaxing base for guests coming to the Portpatrick area. The large open plan kitchen, comfortable sitting room and spacious dining area are perfect for family gatherings. Throw open the large wall of French doors opening onto a large timber deck perfect for alfresco dining with stunning sea views. In the spacious sitting room area, there’s a corner sofa, two armchairs around the electric wood burning style stove and a 40″ smart television. There’s every gadget you could ask for in the well equipped kirchen (all Neff appliances) with a double oven, dishwasher, gas hob, fridge-freezer and washing machine.
The house is thoughtfully stocked with Port Meirion plates, a good selection of glassware, crockery, pots and pans, oven to tableware, knives, utensils and more. Gather round the antique restored pine dining table in the dining area, which seats 8. There are four well appointed bedrooms, three of which can either be super king size doubles or twins – depending on your requirements – and all have en suite shower rooms. The fourth bedroom has a bunk bed and an en suite bathroom. The beds have luxuriously thick feather filled duvets and pillows, crisp white linen and large fluffy bath sheets and hand towels for each guest. Entertainment is covered during your stay, the house is well equipped with Wi-Fi, a smart television, a Freeview Box with recording facilities, a DVD player, a radio with an iPod docking station, a selection of board games, books and classic films.
Colours throughout the house are calming and it is furnished with an eclectic mix of modern and traditional furniture. Outside Cedar Lodge has a flood lit timber deck, with a sturdy gate at the top of the stairs for safety, a picnic table and a hardwood garden seat – perfect for cool summer sipping or post dinner drinks. Cedar Lodge has an enclosed garden, possibly not entirely dog/children proof but has a lawn, mature shrubs and secure on site car parking for three cars.
Portpatrick itself is a charming fishing port – not dissimilar to a Cornish village with the focal point around the harbour and houses perched on the surrounding headland. The village has a good selection of restaurants and pubs from Campbells, which serves excellent seafood and Knockinaam Lodge to the Fernhill and the Crown, plus there are a number of cafes and shops.
There’s an 18 hole golf course as well as a putting green, tennis courts and a pretty sandy beach. Portpatrick is a great base for walking – from the Southern Upland Way – the start of which is in Portpatrick and many walks to choose from in the Galloway Forest Park including the challenging Merrick, the highest peak in the south of Scotland, and Cairnsmore and the Ayrshire Coastal Path, which starts just on the other side of nearby Loch Ryan. There are more leisurely ones too from Portpatrick to Killantringan Lighthouse.
There’s fishing to be had in the harbour or by chartering one of the local fishing boats and heading out into the Irish Sea for the day. Dumfries and Galloway in the south west of Scotland is the first area you reach from England. There’s so much to do across the region that holiday makers will have a job packing everything into a week. There are beautiful gardens to visit from Castle Kennedy Gardens to the exotic gardens of Logan Botanics – well worth a visit for the Potting Shed Bistro alone!
From £895 per week or £596 for a three-night break. Up to two well behaved pets welcome (surcharge of £20 per dog applicable for short breaks and £25 per dog per week).

“Lovely Surprise Big Birthday Weekend – Had a lovely surprise weekend here for my big 70 with all my family. It was ideal as we each had an en-suite bedroom. Best showers I’ve ever had. Everything we needed was provided including some provisions. A lovely touch was leaving me a card and bottle of bubbly. The owners were very attentive and on hand if needed. Did some nice walks and had lovely dinners in Fernhill Hotel and Campbells. Hope I don’t have to wait ’til my big 80! for my next visit here!”
