Knockdow House is located on a 600-acre estate on the Cowal Peninsula. Throughout the estate there are beautiful landscaped gardens, ponds, river, fishing lochs (fly fishing by prior arrangement) and woodland and coastal walks, with a diverse range of fauna and flora. Wildlife is abundant, with red squirrel, otters, roe deer and large variety of birdlife, including hen harriers, buzzards and eagles. Seals, otters and porpoises are also seen regularly throughout the area.
Located on Argyll's Secret Coast, Knockdow House is tucked away in a small corner of Argyll on the west coast of Scotland and is an area of stunning natural beauty, with hills, glens, rugged coastlines, white beaches, clear waters and ancient forests. Yet only an hour and a half from Glasgow.
Argyll's Secret Coast is packed with places to visit and things to do, and sailors, walkers, cyclists, photographers and artists are all drawn to this area for its natural beauty. Explore the forests and coastline by foot, bike, kayak or boat. The whole area is steeped in Highland history and dotted with ruins, castles and ancient sites. Close by is Dunoon, which has a good selection of shops and restaurants, a cinema and swimming pool. Dunoon is of course the home of the Cowal Gathering, one of the largest and most spectacular Highland games in the world. There is a fantastic range of outdoor leisure activities in the area, including sailing, fishing, windsurfing, speed boat tours, quad biking, clay shooting and much more.
The School House Suite is situated on the ground floor of the main house and is accessed by its own front door. Suitable for those who may suffer from mobility restrictions.
The Principal room in this Suite would have originally been the ' Servants Hall' thus its ample proportions and large fireplace. Later this room also became the 'School Room' where the children on the Estate were schooled. Testament to this is the large frieze that surrounds three quarters of the room, depicting the kings and Queens of Scotland from the 11th C. onwards. This feature remains intact.
A wood burning stove (first basket of logs complimentary) adds to its charm and comfort.
A large bay window fronts on to a well manicured lawn bordered by substantial rhododendrons and flowering shrubs. This provides the ideal spot to have a drink or a meal and offers an excellent vantage point to watch the grazing deer early in the morning and in the late evenings.
The suite features a luxurious marble clad 'wet room' with ample bath with shower attachment. The fully equipped , separate kitchen, allows you to rustle up anything from a simple snack to a full feast for two.
We regret that we cannot accept pets in any of the Suites in the main house.
