Beach Lodge is located in a secluded shoreline location overlooking Labrax Bay. The house a former Bathing Lodge was built in 1785 and is listed, and now extensively renovated, offers a fabulous base for a relaxing holiday, and is equally suitable for a small or large family or for a group of friends. Traditional in style Beach Lodge retains many original features and much of its character, and would be considered to offer one of the best locations for a self catering holiday in the Portpatrick area.

The accommodation is on two levels, and throughout the property is tastefully decorated and furnished, the majority of the rooms enjoying sea and garden views. Accommodation on the lower level is given over to the main living areas, and comprises of a large sun room which enjoys views to the rear of the property and over the patio area. A well equipped kitchen, a traditional style sitting room complete with a multi fuel stove, comfortable sofas and the TV, and a second sitting room which has a real fire, this can also be used as a bedroom with the use of a sofa bed. The twin bedroom is located off the sun lounge and benefits from an en-suite bathroom. Further facilities on this level include a small utility room and cloakroom.

On the upper level, two further bedrooms are located and both have traditional coombed ceilings and feature fireplaces. The master bedroom enjoys a shoreline view, and the second bedroom enjoys views to the garden. Further facilities on this level include two bathrooms, which both have baths with showers over, thus ensuring that Beach Lodge has all the requirements to meet the demands of a large family or group.  

Outside the property has an enclosed garden, and a beautiful patio area complete with a charcoal barbecue. The garden to the front is laid with grass and offers a safe environment for children to play or for the pet owner. The property is surrounded on three sides by the hillside ensuring that the lodge is private, allowing you to relax and enjoy the sound of the sea, and the views across to Ireland in the west. The beach itself is just a few minutes’ walk away and due to its location you will normally find it quiet and secluded. The beach provides a perfect place to walk your dog, and the bay itself is popular with windsurfers.

For the larger party Beach Lodge also has its own chalet located beside the patio. Tastefully decorated in a seaside blue, the chalet offers self contained living accommodation for either one or two guests. The chalet benefits from having oil central heating, its own cooking facilities and a shower room complete with a wc and whb. For further details regarding the chalet see our main Facilities List below.   

The nearest towns to the property would be either Stranraer or Portpatrick and both offer a good range of facilities. Stranraer being the larger offers a range of shops, including a large supermarket and a Tourist Information Centre. The village of Portpatrick is very scenic, and the main facilities can be found around the pretty harbour.  

If you are looking for a smaller property in this area or if Beach Lodge is booked, Shore Cottage is situated in the vicinity and also is pet friendly.

We had a great stay at beach lodge with the dog. Didn't see one person all week and had the beach to ourselves! Love the fact it was full of essentials when we got there. Would recommend to all. Hopefully we will return in the future. Thanks for a fantastic break.

Perfect solitude and very well equiped cottage. Driveway down to cottage could do with some maintenance but would not stop me going again

We rented this secluded home as a group including children in February. The postcode takes you to the turning before, so just make sure you drive past here until you see the junction with the Labrador farm on one side and a sign for meikle labrax on the other. The road is rickety but well worth the ride. An absolutely amazing location. The house was warm and welcoming. We walked to the lighthouse (7 miles but well worth it) We loved it as a complete getaway and will def return!!

What a place! Truly fantastic - superb location and so well presented great place to get away and relax! Only negatives if I had to say any - no wifi - but then if you are getting away why would you need it - and the council could do with cleaning the beach in only one area due to washed ashore rubbish! Note no negatives for the property or location as were superb! As for the rubbish this is not noticeable and the surroundings could not be better! Thank you
