The Knowe

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent our 3rd year at The Knowe, every year just gets better! the house is beautiful and well equipped, the cleanliness of the property is second to none! everything you need is there, the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and the conservatory offers a fantastic view/ Nothing is too much trouble for the owners, lovely people. The locals are brilliant, our boys are great friends with the local fisherman. This is the ideal location for watching the world go by. Please visit the Lighthouse pottery shop and the local pubs (there's a few) we are always made really welcome, there's a craft fair on a Sunday in the local hall and a lovely coffee shop just down the road, if I could I wouldn't go home I would just sit on the benches at the front and watch the comings and goings of port Patrick you would be surprised how busy it gets with beautiful boats and people visiting. I would recommend The Knowe to anyone and everyone, you don't know what your missing! From the minute you drive down into Port Patrick you can sense your somewhere special
