What we love


Description

This 14th-century castle is the perfect retreat for a luxurious gathering with family, where you can relax with your feet up around the wood burner.

Knock Old Castle dates back to the 14th-century and has been fantastically resurrected by the current owner into a truly unique, whimsical, fairytale castle. In what has been a 5 year long project, this detached castle has been lovingly restored. Local craftsmen have utilised their skills, imagination and expertise to make this property into something that will amaze every guest.
From the quirky doors and interior, where no straight lines will be found, to the sauna in the tower, and the painted ceiling in the keep, to the stunning views over the sea from the glass domed lookout, and not forgetting the sheep grazing on the wild flower roof. Old Knock Castle will be sure to exceed every expectation.
The castle is situated on the Ayrshire coast, in a private setting, 200 yards from the owner’s home, with only a short walk from the shore and close to the bustling town of Largs with its shops, restaurants and promenade. This holiday property is ideally located to explore the islands of Cumbrae, Arran and the Isle of Bute. Ferries run to Dunoon and the Cowal Peninsula, giving access to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
Ayrshire offers a varying coastline with villages, beaches and rocky coves to explore, and is an ideal location for cyclists and walkers, with Skelmorlie heralding the start of the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100 mile long coastal walk. Inland there is walking, cycling, gardens and castles to visit, riding, fishing, racing and a choice of golf courses, including the world famous open venues of Troon Prestwick and Turnberry.
Culzean Castle Country Park, extending over 550 acres, has a network of wooded trails passing along the beach. Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily reached for a day trip, with rail links available from the town. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Castle was amazing, very comfortable beds, hot tub was great, views superb. Castle could have been a bit cleaner though. A lot of spider webs, even for a castle.

    Knock Old Castle is truly magical! Throughout our week long stay we were finding new quirky little hidden gems every day. The attention to detail that has gone into creating the castle is absolutely phenomenal. We all commented on how well we all slept, the quality of the bedding and mattress really does show. It is fair to say Knock Old Castle is one of the most interesting and wacky places we have ever stayed and we thoroughly loved our stay. Just a warning, Largs and all the surrounding towns are extremely run down and there is not a great deal to do in any of them! In all fairness, you don't really want to leave the castle and there is so much to do and explore in and around it.

    We had the most amazing stay in this wonderful castle-the best property by far that we have stayed in. The occasion was my granddaughter's 9th birthday celebration and the children loved the quirkiness of this beautiful castle. The views from the hot tub were stunning.

    Fantastic weekend break away with the Girls, location absolutely wonderful and stunning, unfortunately a few niggles with finishing touches and the 'little things' (all easily rectified) plus a problem with the water supply meant it just didn't quite live up to the very high expectations of luxury set by all the marketing materials and cost.
