Kirkdale West Wing is a magnificent self-contained wing of Kirkdale House, a beautiful original Robert Adam house in Dumfries and Galloway. The house is considered to have one of the least altered Adam exteriors in Scotland.
Sleeping 6, the West Wing is a newly refurbished apartment and available for holiday letting for the first time.
The Wing is completely separate with its own main door, easy parking and private garden and provides spacious, luxurious accommodation.
Kirkdale West Wing has spectacular sweeping sea views over the magnificent Solway Firth. On a clear day you can see to the Isle of Man. The master bedroom, main twin room and dining/sitting-room all have stunning uninterrupted sea views.
The mansion apartment, over two floors, has been newly refurbished and provides three bedrooms, a spacious living/dining room, kitchen and two bathrooms. On the first floor is a master king size double and small twin (full size beds but probably better suited to two children or one adult) plus a bathroom and shower over. On the ground floor is the entrance hall, kitchen, dining/sitting-room, a very spacious twin and a bathroom, with bath and shower over.
The property benefits from wi-fi, gas central heating, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, tv, dvd, radio/cd player with ipod dock, travel cot, highchair and toys and games.
Guests staying at Kirkdale are superbly positioned to enjoy all Dumfries and Galloway has to offer, with Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbright and Wigtown all within twenty minutes drive.
Pets are welcome by arrangement.
