About Us

Welcome to “Westview” – Our Coastal Haven in Port William

Allow us, the Webster family, to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to our beloved holiday cottage, “Westview,” nestled in the picturesque village of Port William.

For over four decades, we have been captivated by the beauty and charm of this small port village.

Our dream of owning a second home here became a reality in October 2021 when we completed the purchase of this delightful cottage.

When we first laid eyes on the cottage, it had been sitting vacant for quite some time and was in desperate need of love and care. We embarked on an extensive renovation journey, tearing it down to its bare bones and rebuilding it from the ground up. Every tear shed and moment of stress was worthwhile when we saw the transformation unfold before us.

Now, “Westview” stands as a beautiful and inviting property, ready to embrace families and friends who seek solace and serenity.


We would be remiss not to acknowledge the extraordinary talents and dedication of the local tradesmen who have played an integral role in the creation of our cottage.

From skilled joiners and builders to meticulous electricians, plumbers, and decorators, these talented individuals have poured their expertise and craftsmanship into every detail, ensuring that “Westview” is a haven of the highest standard.

Throughout the renovation process, Annabelle, worked closely with the tradesmen from afar, spanning the 500-mile distance between Kent and Port William. Through the marvels of technology, such as FaceTime, Annabelle provided guidance and oversight, collaborating seamlessly with the tradesmen to bring her vision to life. Their unwavering commitment to excellence, coupled with Annabelle’s meticulous guidance, has resulted in a property that surpasses our wildest dreams.

We are forever grateful to these talented local craftsmen, who have poured their hearts and souls into every aspect of the cottage’s transformation. Their dedication and passion have elevated “Westview” to an extraordinary standard, ensuring that every guest who steps foot inside is met with a sense of awe and admiration.

With meticulous attention to detail, we have equipped our holiday home with everything we ourselves would desire during a getaway. We went the extra mile to ensure that every aspect of your stay was considered, so you could relax and enjoy your time here to the fullest. From comfortable furnishings to modern amenities, we have thoughtfully curated an environment where you can unwind and create cherished memories.

To ensure that “Westview” is always in top-notch condition, we have partnered with Sykes Holiday Cottages, who expertly manage the holiday let market for us.

A dedicated team of maintenance and cleaning professionals tends to the property, guaranteeing that every visit is met with impeccable cleanliness and functionality. Though we may be based 500 miles away in Kent, we make it a point to return to Port William regularly to experience the magic ourselves, accompanied by friends and family. These visits also serve as an opportunity for us to ensure that everything is as perfect as it can be.

We are proud to have deep roots in this port village, with family members residing here and even being related to one set of neighbours. Dean’s cousin, Paul Maguire, is the village fisherman, bringing in daily catches of fresh lobster. It’s a true joy to share these connections with you and offer you a glimpse into the close-knit community that makes Port William so special.

As you embark on your journey in this idyllic village, we hope that you fall in love with its charm and revel in the tranquil atmosphere that has captured our hearts for so many years. We extend our warmest wishes for a memorable stay at “Westview” and invite you to create cherished moments that will forever hold a place in your heart.

With warm regards,
The Webster Family

Guest Reviews

We have had a wonderful week here, using "Westview" as our base. The weather has been fabulous every day, and we have watched the incredible sunsets from the cottage window. There aren't enough superlatives to describe Westview. The decor is wonderful, and every need has been catered for. We have certainly appreciated the thoughtful details - we have wanted for nothing. Hopefully, we will be back sometime in the not-too-distant future. There is much more to do and see in this beautiful part of Scotland.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Westview Cottage in the charming fishing village of Port William, and it was an absolutely fantastic experience. From the moment I stepped foot into the cottage, I was greeted with a sense of tranquility and relaxation. The location of Westview Cottage is truly remarkable. Situated in the heart of Port William, it offers breathtaking views of the surrounding coastal beauty. Waking up to the sound of seagulls and the gentle lapping of waves was a true delight. The cottage itself was meticulously maintained, beautifully furnished, and thoughtfully decorated, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The owners of Westview Cottage were exceptional hosts. Their warm welcome and attention to detail made me feel right at home. They provided all the necessary amenities and went above and beyond to ensure a comfortable stay. Their knowledge of the local area was invaluable, as they offered fantastic recommendations for exploring the village and nearby attractions. Port William itself is a gem. The fishing village has a captivating charm, with its quaint streets, friendly locals, and stunning coastal walks.

Beautiful location, amazingly well equipped, spotlessly clean. It's nice to stay somewhere where some real thought had gone into the property. You could travel light as everything you need is here. The owners couldn't do enough to help us with helpful info during our stay. 5* from us.
