SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATION FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION OR GET TOGETHER

Ornockenoch House makes the perfect setting for a family get together with the house easily catering for groups of 14 and ensures peace and privacy while only being a mile or so from Gatehouse of Fleet. The house has views over Ornockenoch Loch to the rolling Galloway hills and the spacious accommodation has been refurbished and equipped to the highest of standards to ensure that you will have a memorable stay in this charming country house. The house is on the owner’s hill farm and estate ensuring tranquil surroundings with walks from the door.

The comfortable traditional country house style accommodation includes a spacious sitting room and a superb dining room which opens in to a large modern kitchen; the principal rooms all have views of the loch. The accommodation layout is such that there is plenty of room for everyone to find their own space. The ground floor single bedroom can be used by a Nanny, Housekeeper or Chef. If catering for a special event is required the owner is able to assist with arrangements.

Whilst the Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park is on the doorstep the location of the house means that you can enjoy the stars from the house itself. The Park does however provide superb opportunities for enjoying all outdoor pursuits such as walking, mountain biking and wonderful wildlife including Red Deer, Red Kite, if lucky a Golden Eagle, Kingfishers, Otters and many more. The Solway coast has many quiet and peaceful beaches together with all the water sports that you would expect and nearby Loch Ken is a popular centre for water sports including sailing and course fishing. Galloway Activity Centre offers both land and water based activities on Loch Ken, booking is advisable.

Gatehouse of Fleet is a popular town with several pubs and hotels offering good food along with smaller cafes and restaurants. The Town’s annual Gala day is not to be missed and always has a good variety of displays for all tastes.

Scotland’s history and heritage can be explored with visits to many local sites including Cardoness Castle on the outskirts of Gatehouse of Fleet, Dumfries House near Cummnock or following the various Rabbie Burns trails. It is also worth taking time to explore the Galloway towns which include Kirkcudbright on the Dee Estuary with it’s artist links to the “Glasgow Boys and Girls” painting schools or a visit to Castle Douglas with it’s busy high street filled with galleries and independent shops.
