The Kipp Paddock development of nine holiday lodges was established in 2005 and Kipplochan is the largest. The lodges are arranged in a circle, the centre of which is a small pond or lochan, hence our chosen name.

The village of Kippford nestles on the river Urr estuary and was once a busy port although these days its sailing activities are solely for liesure and the pace of life is very relaxed. The village has two nautically themed pubs which are renowned for their friendly atmosphere and fine dining. Mature woodland surrounds the village on its landward side and there are numerous pleasant paths to walk and cycle. Red squirrels are plentiful in the area and can on occassion be seen in and around the garden of Kipplochan.
