This is a low allergy house with all pets banned.
A stunning, fully enclosed, secluded courtyard is a focal point which is one reason why Kirkconnell House is ideal for family gatherings & reunions etc. Other big pluses are the full size pool table and table tennis table which, along with the darts board, occupy a full floor of the Pele Tower dating from around 1370.
The large farmhouse style kitchen opens directly onto the courtyard with its sandstone paved area with wood tables and chairs for 18+. In the kitchen are 2 fridges, 2 freezers, 2 ovens, a built in microwave, 5 ring ceramic hob, large capacity Quooker instant boiling water tap, dishwasher and 6 slice toaster. The crockery, cutlery and glasses are sufficient for more than 18 people. Then in the nearby dining room there is a large table and 18 chairs plus a hostess trolley as well as a well stocked extra large bookcase.
Leading off the wide main hallway are the main spiral staircase, the TV lounge and wood panelled lounge as well as the kitchen, dining room, bathroom and shallow tread staircase. Further along are the scullery, with its own access to the courtyard and the wood store.
On the first floor apart from the main bathroom there is a Super Kingsize bedroom, a triple, a twin, a twin ensuite and a double ensuite. There is a large wooden cot on this floor that can be moved into any of these bedrooms.
Up a fairly steep flight is a double with full shower and wash basin.
Accessed by its own wide, double handrail staircase is a suite of bedrooms. A double, a single and a twin - (all interconnecting).
Situated on a quiet single track road we are just over a mile from the beautiful village of New Abbey and yet you can be parked in the centre of Dumfries in under 10 minutes - with free disc parking. The quiet rural location is ideal for families to cycle and explore. There is a fully marked, circular walk from the gates to New Abbey where the award winning tea shop plus the pub and village shop all offer refreshments.
Alternatively cycle/walk just beyond the end of the single track road, passing the brown signed 'Kirkconnell Flow' to reach Mabie Forest which is part of the mountain biking 'magnet', the 7 Stanes. For the younger visitors Mabie Farm Park is always a winner and then retire to Mabie House Hotel for a drink or meal.
There are beaches at Carsethorn, Powwillimount and Sandy Hills just a short drive along the coast and beyond the RSPB Mersehead Reserve the seaside/estuary villages of Rockcliffe & Kippford are well worth a visit.
There is a large carriage circle at the front of the house with grassed play areas to the sides and rear plus parking for 20+ cars. This is where marquees etc can be erected for events.
