Sleeps 6-7


Windyknowe has been beautifully redecorated in March 2014 and the house is furnished and equipped to a high standard.

It sits in a lovely large garden which is well-maintained and contains many mature shrubs and trees and is positioned high on a bank above the quiet lane which winds alongside the River Stinchar. The house occupies a wonderful position and has a fabulous large and bright reception room with log fire, a south-facing bay window and doors to the veranda.

The large kitchen has a cosy atmosphere with four-oven Aga and dining table in the bay window overlooking the river. There are three good-sized bedrooms each with modern en-suite bath and shower rooms and there is space for a seventh person in a single room off one of the upstairs bedrooms.

This large house on the edge of the village of Ballantrae is very spacious and has a deep sunny veranda with a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside, the river and the sea. 

It has been thoughtfully decorated and makes a wonderful place for a holiday with plenty of space for everyone.

We came and stayed at Castlehill & Windyknowe for our wedding at Glenapp Castle. Everything has been AMAZING. The accommodation has been exceptional, more than we could have ever imagined. It has made the long trip up here worth every minute. Thank you all.


Jean and I would like to thank you all for making Castlehill the perfect Christmas venue, the tree and decorations were excellent and my family and friends had a wonderful time, looking forward to Windyknowe in May, thanks again, we hope you all had a great Christmas.


Stayed at Windyknowe with friends, 2 children and 2 dogs. The house was beautiful and very comfortable with enough space for all of us not to be on top of each other. Warm fire with large store of logs, lovely for when you weren't in the kitchen with the aga. The garden was large and secure, perfect for the dogs. Views from the house are beautiful as is the general area. Lovely walks straight from the house and easy access to the village. I would recommend this house without hesitation.
