Description

Enjoy superb indoor and outdoor facilities, acres of glorious gardens all just a few miles from the sandy shore.

"Shimmering lakes, wooded walks and views to Lakeland across the Firth . . . superb cottages in a spectacular setting . . .’’

In three acres of glorious garden grounds, surrounded by lakes of water lilies, splendid trees, flowering shrubs and woodland drives, the splendid cottages at Kinmount Castle are only a few miles from the sandy shoreline, which sweeps westwards to yachting harbours and bird reserves. This meticulous, architect-designed conversion has transformed the Victorian servants’ wing of magnificent Kinmount House into a delightful courtyard cluster of eight holiday cottages, seven of which we feature here, which retain a wealth of original features and details, and possess tremendous atmosphere and charm, which makes it an ideal marquee wedding venue with ballroom included. They enjoy shared use of outstanding facilities, including a superb indoor heated swimming pool, which has been sensitively incorporated into one side of the courtyard. Open daily all year round, the pool has full changing facilities, and its building also houses a sauna, sunbed, cardio gym and games room with pool table. The cottages themselves have been luxuriously appointed; the master bedrooms have four-poster beds, the kitchens are lavishly equipped and the utmost care has been taken over the choice of fabrics and furnishings. Alongside the gracious main house, they are set around the attractive courtyard with patio and barbecue areas – and an extensive grassed area offers plenty of space to relax. From the cottages, there is immediate access to the grounds where azaleas and rhododendrons are a pageant of colour in the summer. With lakes in front of the house, it is a fitting setting for properties of the finest quality, which boast views over shimmering waters to the Lakeland Hills across the Solway Firth.
Kinmount Castle has access to exclusive salmon beats on the Rivers Annan and Nith including the famous Barjarg beat that boasts a salmon catch of 67 lb, in 1812, by well-known poacher, Jock Wallace, and confirmed by the Earl of the home. More up to date catches are now giving an average of 59 salmon and 160 sea trout in a a season along this two mile beat. One to one fishing tuition can also be arranged for novices. Prices at cost – dependant on the time of year.
Just 2 miles from the cottages is Powfoot, created in the 1790s as a sea-bathing resort by one of the owners of Kinmount House. Set above a beach, it has an excellent golf course, one of several along this coast. About a mile further on, the river at the redstone town of Annan is famous for its salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishing, and there are pleasant walks along both banks. The town boasts a choice of restaurants and pubs, as well as a sports centre. At Ecclefechan (6 miles) Thomas Carlyle’s birthplace is to be found, containing a collection of relics and letters. Rammerscales (8 miles) is a Georgian house linked with Flora MacDonald. Along the coast at Caerlaverock (8 miles), 13,000 acres of salt-marsh and foreshore have been designated a National Nature Reserve; barnacle, pink-footed and greylag geese feeding on the saltings in Autumn and Winter make this one of the most notable bird sanctuaries in Britain. Overlooking the reserve from a wooded mound are the striking red sandstone ruins of Caerlaverock Castle, dating from the 13th century and besieged many times during the Border wars.
In the parish church at Ruthwell, the Ruthwell cross is a most impressive example of 7th-century stone carving, inscribed with verses from The Dream of the Rood. Dumfries (13 miles) is renowned for its Burns museum, and has a fine golf course. Further west are quaint fishing villages and the rugged beauty of the Galloway Hills. The area offers opportunities for sailing, water sports and riding, and the nearby towns offer good shopping and a variety of inns and eating places. Shops 3 miles.

Spacious sitting room with gas ‘coal-effect’ fire, open plan to well-equipped kitchen with dining area. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft pine four-poster bed and en-suite shower room with toilet. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    lovely location and the accommodation is of a very good standard. Nice pool and pleasant walks round the lake. Good base to explore the area, nearby Powfoot is worth a visit. Annan which is only a few miles away has shops and food outlets. We have stayed here on three occasions and have always enjoyed it.

    Basically very good, comfortable cottage but with some serious flaws - no wifi, no landline and virtually no mobile signal - comes and goes so no mobile data. The hedges and vegetation round the property have been grown such that you cannot see out - we think so that no-one can see in either. Most seriously though is the profusion of signs and warnings everywhere - do not go there, park here , do not walk here, etc etc. Very uncomfortable feeling - you are not wanted.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. Wi-Fi is not advertised within the property description. In regards to mobile signal, I can get 3g and 4g here depending on the provider; search on 3g / 4g signal will show this. Alternatively, there is a landline on the corridor gym area in the form of a payphone. You also describe our property as basically very good - not sure what you mean. The cottages are in a grade A listed house and gardens and hedges cannot be cut to suit clients, they have been here since house inception and are cut each year to be in keeping with the estate gardens and grounds, the hedge is around 4ft high. Photographs of the gardens are available on the website. In reference to the signs, we have 2 that say carpark, not a warning sign, another states no vehicles beyond the carpark as we are a working estate and 4 wheel drive mowers and garden vehicles come past the area, it’s around 10 paces from the gate to courtyard to Annan house (where you can unload) and another 30 paces to the carpark. A sign at our neighbours grounds stating no access to his property as we respect his privacy.
