  • "The property was beautiful and set in stunning surroundings, the views from the windows over the loch and countryside were amazing."

    The addition of the binoculars were a lovely addition. On arrival there was an awful lot of dead wood lice in the property but a quick hoover round soon dispensed with them. It was lovely and warm, with plenty of seating so everyone was comfortable. The dinning room large enough and the circular table was fabulous. The kitchen was really well equipped and always lovely to have a dishwasher and washing machine. The children and dogs enjoyed the garden and the table tennis was fun. Plenty of games for the children to play inside when it rained. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable and the bathrooms lovely. We did have one small issue, the owner was there straight away on the end of the phone trying to help solve the problem which we really appreciated. The barbeque hut was also a treat. All in all we had a fabulous stay, plenty of amazing walks and I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to other large groups / families. Thank you for a fabulous stay, its a great home from home.

Benefitting from pet-friendly, ground-floor living and pretty views over Loch Kindar, Knockendoch welcomes eight guests, perfect for a family, group of friends or couples seeking a memorable getaway in Scotland.

After parking up, take the weight off your feet in the inviting sitting room, clicking on the Smart TV or lighting the woodburning stove on cooler days to truly make yourself feel at home.

Allow the budding chef of the group to get to grips with a superb array of appliances in the well-equipped kitchen to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal, before settling down at the dining table to tuck in over a cold glass of wine.

If you prefer to dine alfresco, head outside to the enclosed garden where you can soak up your lovely surroundings as your pooch plays safely.

When the stars appear overhead, retreat inside to wash away the day in either a Jack-and-Jill shower room or bathroom, treating yourself to a warm shower or soak in the tub before curling up in your chosen bedroom.

In the morning, begin your itinerary at Sweetheart Abbey where you can take a step back in time and admire the remains of the 13th-century structure, or spend your day at Loch Kindar, an idyllic spot with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, perfect for a family picnic!

About the location


Dumfries 5 miles.

The quiet village of New Abbey is dominated by the peak of Criffel, which at 570 metres, offers excellent walking and superb views over south western Scotland and the Lake District. The history of the village is represented in Sweetheart Abbey, a Cistercian abbey dating from 1273. A watermill makes an attractive backdrop for the village which has a shop, a coffee shop and two hotels. The River Nith runs nearby and offers excellent fishing. Dumfries lies 8 miles to the north. A market town and former royal burgh, Dumfries, nicknamed Queen of the South, dates from Roman times and is split into two by the River Nith running into the Solway Firth. With its many restaurants, bars, cafes and museums, as well as walking, biking and fishing in the nearby Galloway Hills and forests, there is something for everyone in this beautiful area of south west Scotland.
