One of two adjoining cottages, picturesquely situated on the sea in the small hamlet of Kirkandrews in South West Scotland, Knockkennoch 2 is the ideal place to relax and unwind with views looking out over the Solway coast. With beaches on your doorstep as well as opportunities for hill walking, sea fishing, golfing, cycling and water sports, there’s plenty to keep the whole family occupied. Or perhaps visiting historic castles, renowned gardens and ancient woodland will appeal to you? Kirkandrews Kirk, sitting opposite the cottage, is a unique little kirk (or church) completed in 1906, with parapet and castellated tower resembling a miniature castle.
Set in a charming coastal location, the property is only a short drive from the harbour town of Kirkcudbright, known as ’Scotland’s Artists Town’ and was particularly popular with the Colourists, many of whom lived in the town in the early 1900s. It is a very active and friendly community; visitors to the town can enjoy the variety and number of activities and events held in the area all year round. Shops and restaurants 8 miles, pub 3 miles.
For larger groups, Knockkennoch 2 can be booked together with Knockkennoch 1 (CC537259) to accommodate up to 10 guests. The cottages have a shared 1-acre garden and are bordered by 2 burns (or streams) with access to a private beach.
