Gap on the Move


5 holiday homes - Main Street, Portpatrick

The five properties have in recent times been completely renovated and are offered for sale in good condition. Each property is in excellent decorative order with a neutral colour palate having been adopted. The properties are well appointed and sport contemporary fitted kitchens and bathrooms. The properties are equipped with electric heating. Our clients have each property furnished to a high standard and this furniture, floor coverings, blinds etc will be included in the sale.

Our clients have operated this holiday business for 5 years over which time there has been steady occupancy, presently averaging 30 weeks a year (across each property). The business continues to grow and the season appears to be extending each year, evening out the traditional spikes at peak season periods. Portpatrick is and always has been a very popular holiday destination be it for weekend breaks or longer stays. However our clients have also had uptake for the properties from businesses operating in the area looking for accommodation for contractors etc and this alternative business dynamic affords potential to maintain occupancy through traditionally quieter periods.

The properties are located in a central location within the picturesque village of Portpatrick. This is locally referred to as the ‘old part’ of the village, close the sea front and stunning harbour basin. Properties in this quarter are of the traditional vernacular. From this situation the properties in the portfolio are well placed to access the many restaurants and bars which can be found in the village and are a short walk from the sea front and harbour.

The properties are at present named after islands which can be found of the west of Scotland and for the purpose of these particulars we have referred to the properties as they are named by our clients:
