"Kirknowe is a gem! From the moment we entered the property we could feel ourselves start to unwind. Evenings spent in front of the fire watching TV, reading and playing cards was so relaxing. Having a separate "wing" for our son was a bonus. It was a great base for exploring sites and there were so many walks just outside the door and a short driving distance away. We didn't want to leave and if it was available, we would have immediately extended our stay. We will most definitely be back!"

"Beautiful house - real home from home - in a beautiful setting and stunning part of the country. Extremely well equipped and very spacious, easily and comfortably able to accommodate six people. Lovely hosts who provided everything you could need; welcome “pack” of cake, pasties, milk and flowers was much appreciated. Very highly recommended."
