The house is one of Kirkcudbright's oldest buildings and has excellent views over the town, the outstanding Visit Scotland 5 star graded accommodation ensures a luxurious holiday experience. It has magnificent views to Maclellan's Castle and, from the bedrooms, over Kirkcudbright to the estuary and uplands beyond. Whilst the house is centrally located it has a quiet location with easy access to all its facilities and backs on to the Hope-Dunbar Park, a recently enhanced children's play area and consequently easy access to the woodland walks adjoining Kirkcudbright.
The property has been lovingly restored and converted from its earlier status as the town's Masonic Hall to include underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and in all bathrooms. It provides spacious and comfortable family accommodation for groups of up to ten, with wheelchair access to the ground floor, the accommodation is over three floors and please note there is no bedroom on the ground floor. There is excellent outdoor seating both to the front of the house facing West to catch the afternoon and evening sun whilst, to the rear overlooking the adjoining park, the veranda facing East makes the most of the sun up to lunchtime and beyond. A top quality chef service is available on request.
South-West Scotland is ideal for holidays and abounds in touring opportunities, historic and cultural sites or sporting activities. The former might include visiting National Trust properties at Broughton House in Kirkcudbright, and Threave Gardens outside Castle Douglas whilst the latter would obviously involve golfing with courses too numerous to mention, including the town's 18-hole course just a mile away. There are also plentiful opportunities for horse-riding, bird watching, walking on beaches or cliff tops or in woodlands and, for biking enthusiasts, 2 hybrid bikes are provided for use of guests. The Forestry Commission's 7Stanes Mountain bike Routes are all close at hand.
