“Beautiful Manor House with stunning views”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2020

We had a wonderful week’s holiday staying at the West Wing apartment at Knoxbrex. The house is ideal for a large family and we chose it for it’s secluded location so that we could all safely be together for a family break. The house itself is spacious, clean and well equipped. We loved having drinks on the terrace in the early evening watching the sun reflect off the water and seeing deer, red squirrels and numerous types of birds around the gardens. The beaches at Sandgreen, Brighouse Bay and of course the local Carrick were all beautiful and we managed to swim in the sea on most days. At low tide a walk from Carrick over to one of the Fleet islands was very enjoyable as were visits to Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and of course Cream of Galloway ( we seemed to stop off there on the way home most days as it’s so close to the house!) We would highly recommend this beautiful house for a safe and very comfortable family holiday. It’s made us realise we can have as much fun and enjoyment on a “staycation” holiday as we can abroad.

Owner's reply: Anthea - Thank you for the lovely review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your staycation in the West Wing. Hope we can welcome you back again sometime to experience more of the local wildlife and tranquil beauty at Knockbrex.

“Stunning views whatever the weather”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2018

A great place to stay - we fell in love with Dumfries and Galloway. So much to do and see; great walks, including crossing to the island at low tide; good coffee shops, galleries and restaurants in Kirkudbright; a comfortable and spacious property; absolutely stunning views throughout the day and night - both when the sun was shining and while it was blowing a gale.

Owner's reply: Great to hear that you all enjoyed your stay in the West Wing, despite the blustery weather. We hope you can find opportunity to return and explore more of Dumfries & Galloway in the near future.
