Knock Cottage was a 19th century Dame School provided by The Maxwells of Monreith Estate to provide education for the surrounding children. The cottage is spacious and bright with a large double bedroom, with adjoining dressing room; generous sized single bedroom and a sunroom where it is ideal to enjoy the sunset, while relaxing over a jigsaw on the large table or reading, while the living room is inviting once the sun has set.
Knock Cottage is situated opposite a ½ mile single track road leading to two fantastic beaches and St Medan nine-hole Golf Course which is overlooked by Gavin Maxwell’s memorial bronze otter on the cliff top and provides fantastic views over Lucy Bay to the Isle of Mull Lighthouse, or further afield to the Isle of Man and Ireland beyond.
Nestled and hidden between the quiet beach and Gavin Maxwell’s Otter is the ancient church and church yard of Kirkmaiden.
Knock Cottage is located close the working harbour village of Port William, with a licenced grocery shop, post-office, old-fashioned ironmongers and the locally volunteered Lifeboat Café, which provides wonderful sea views.
Wigtown, Scotland’s Book Town is a place to visit for book lovers of all ages. Many properties have opened their front parlours to accommodate thousands of books. Wigtown also hosts the annual book festival attracting many famous authors.
Whilst the Machars benefits from the warmth of the passing Gulf Stream and hosts various Gardens, a trip to Logan Royal Botanical Gardens is a must with its many exotic plants and trees. The 200 year old, newly renovated lowlands whisky distillery near Wigtown offers tours and café. Enjoy the rugged coast line, sandy beaches and many walks close by, with cycling at the 7 Stanes Galloway Forest park, along with many lochs to explore only a short drive away.
The Whithorn Way, a newly mapped walking path follows much of the westerly pilgrimage route which has been travelled on for over 1000 years, along with archaeological sites close by.
Knock Cottage is a fantastic base to explore all South West Scotland has to offer or simply to relax and unwind in an area where time stands still.
