More information about Craigie Knowes

Property information

Situated on the peaceful northern shores of the Solway Firth, and with sea views out to the National Trust 'Rough Island', Craigie Knowes is ideal for those who are seeking a tranquil location but within reach of plenty of amenities.

The house dates back to the 1860s, and is a fine Victorian villa that has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard and incorporates a wonderful front-of-house conservatory that offers the chance to enjoy the sea views - whatever the season!

With oak floors, leather sofas and a wood burning stove, the lounge is a relaxing and spacious room for family living. The kitchen has been well thought out and fitted with top quality Miele equipment, a super induction hob cooker, a large larder fridge and a breakfast table for ten. The especially attractive main dining room seats ten, overlooks the sea and has doors opening to the garden.

Three of the bedrooms have fine sea views and are most comfortably furnished, and with two en suite bedrooms and a separate bath/shower room this is the perfect house for a large family.

Rockcliffe is a quiet and attractive village: an arc of white-painted houses and cottages and Victorian villas circle the bay and overlook the NTS Rough Island. The village stands on the east side of the mouth of Rough Firth, the estuary of the Urr Water.

The NTS also owns much of the coastal land north-west of Rockcliffe, through which a footpath leads to Kippford, a mile away. En route you pass the Mote of Mark: this Dark Age hillfort overlooks the Urr Estuary and is thought to have been occupied for up to 300 years until destroyed by fire in the 700s. It is said to be named after Mark, King of Dumnonia, and links have been made with the story of Tristan and Isolde and with the legends of King Arthur.
