Craigrannoch House - ROCKCLIFFE
Holiday property description
A delightful well proportioned, wheelchair friendly, family house in an outstanding location with extensive lawned gardens and summerhouse giving views over Rockcliffe bay and the Solway. A private footpath from the garden leads to the sea front. The garden backs onto a meadow and Forestry tracks leading to Kippford, on the Urr estuary. Kippford is popular for sailing and has a shop, and 2 pubs both of which serve food. The forest tracks also link directly to the A710 and 7Stanes mountain bike circuit a short ride away.
Ideal for families or groups, there is plenty of space inside to spread out or get some quiet with a large 30 foot traditional lounge, sunroom, kitchen and dining room, a quiet ground floor bedroom with patio doors to the garden, and a light airy en-suite king sized master bedroom with stunning sea views. Craigrannoch House has cleverly adapted the ground floor to allow complete wheelchair access if required. The adaptions include a ramp from the driveway into the house, wider doors to the main rooms, enlarged ground floor bedroom, with King size or twin beds which have electrically operated head/foot raise, a wet room with shower seat and toilet, all with suitable grab handles, there is also a portable ramp which allows access into the sunroom. This adapted area can of course be used by able bodied guests. The kitchen can be accessed by wheelchair, however the appliances have not been adapted for a wheelchair user.
Rockcliffe's quiet sandy bay is great for kid's rock pooling while adults can enjoy cliff and forest walks or biking. A boot room and large lockup facility for equipment and a purpose built bike wash area is provided. A short drive takes you to a large sandy bay at Sandyhills, golf courses at Kippford, Colvend and Southerness, small towns for eating out, ice skating, swimming pools, parks and places of historical interest such as the famous Sweetheart Abbey and Threave Gardens.

Just a quick note to thank all involved in our wonderful stay at Craigrannoch in Rockcliffe. Our whole three generation family had a fantastic time. The house welcomed us, accommodated us beautifully and, indeed, it was quite a wrench to say goodbye to it.....a definite home from home!!
The Rockcliffe experience has never changed since we were children and it was amazing to visit it again with our own now grown up and married children and introduce it to our grandchildren, all together, based in Craigrannoch...so thank you all for contributing to a very happy holiday.

Craigrannoch House Reviews
5 star reviewA wonderful return visit to a fantastic setting for a great 3generation holiday. The house is spacious and well appointed, the view from the garden to the bay is wonderful and the garden itself is safe and perfect for children having a run about in.
4 star reviewGreat location and nice house with good facilities. We had problems with hot water supply and also accessing the garage for the barbecue and the caretakers did not know about these things. In fact on the last day we found some information in the laundry that would have helped and we should have been shown that on arrival (but no one saw us at any stage and we had difficulty getting through to the caretakers.
5 star reviewCraigrannoch is the perfect house for a family holiday. The garden is safe for children and the dog, with easy access to the beach. The house is well equipped, comfortable and has a good supply of games etc for the family. The layout is great for large families and it has a very relaxed ambienceIt is an old family favourite and good to hear that it still ticks all the boxes, thanks for leting us know that you enjoy it so much.
