Welcome to Kirkennan Estate Holiday Cottages

Discover South West Scotland's beautiful coastline, varied wildlife and turbulent history. Dumfries & Galloway is a great place for holidays for those that enjoy walking, cycling & much more...

Our 3 family & dog friendly holiday cottages are set within the beautiful and peaceful Kirkennan Estate close to the Solway Coast with its sandy beaches and rocky coves and just a few miles from the popular village of Kippford; an ideal base for exploring the whole of Dumfries and Galloway in South West Scotland. The cottages provide comfortable self-catering accommodation within 74 acres of formal lawns, woodland, walled garden and fields which guests are invited to enjoy - ideal for early morning wanders. Red squirrels, roe deer, a range of birds, bats, badgers and, if you are lucky, otters can all be been seen on the Estate.

Our holiday accommodation

Choose from wheelchair accessible Woodsedge Cottage (sleeps 5), The Lodge (sleeps 5 + 2) and The Mews (sleeps 4 + 1). We do short breaks all year round with a minimum of 3 nights starting any day of the week. Each cottage is well equipped for self-catering and has its own garden area - The Lodge and Woodsedge both have enclosed gardens; The Mews has outside space that links directly onto the Estate gardens. Paved private roads extend through the formal gardens of the Estate that are suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs, young bike riders and mobility scooters (one is available for the use of guests in Woodsedge). The cottages are dog friendly and we welcome up to 3 well behaved dogs at no extra charge (they can be let off the lead in our riverside woodland). Guests at all cottages have access to our Electric Car / EV Charging points (Type 2).

Kirkennan is less than a mile from the friendly village of Palnackie with a dog friendly pub, a community run shop and cafe and a harbour. A short drive will take you to the 'food town' of Castle Douglas with a range of independent shops, or Dalbeattie known for its outdoor activities including 7-Stanes mountain biking. The wonderful Solway Coast with sandy beaches and dramatic coastal walks is minutes away and woodland walks are available from the doorstep.
