Kirkdale West Wing
Kirkdale Estate, Carsluith
Spectacularly situated with stunning sea views, Kirkdale West Wing is part of Kirkdale House yet with its own private entrance, garden and main door. Kirkdale House is an original Robert Adam house and the site has been home to the Hannay family for the last 500 years. The property is surrounded by woodland with ancient 400 hundred year old trees and looks out over the magnificent Solway Firth. The Estate's private coastline is part of a protected Site of Special Scientific Interest with rare lichens, ancient native woodland and provides the opportunity to sea fish. The West Wing benefits from a private fully enclosed south-west facing garden with sea views.
Situated on the Solway coastline, 5 minutes to the west of the attractive town of Gatehouse of Fleet there is plenty to see and do locally. The area boasts stunning sandy beaches, the famous Seven Stanes mountain biking centre, forest walks, a huge choice of golf courses, fishing, tennis, clay pigeon shooting, archery and horse-riding. Guests are welcome to use the golden sandy beaches at the private Cardoness Estate only 3 miles away. Cream o'Galloway, the award-winning organic ice-cream and dairy farm with children's indoor and outdoor play area is within 10 minutes drive.
The house is 15 minutes from Kirkcudbright, a beautiful coastal town famous for its artists and 20 minutes from both Castle Douglas, south-west Scotland's food town, and Wigtown, Scotland's book town. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from locally if you want to eat out - many serve excellent local produce. Or come and curl up with a good book and enjoy the ever changing sea view out of your windows!
