We had a lovely peaceful stay in The Schoolhouse. The facilities in the apartment are excellent, the kitchen is well equipped and the welcome is exceptionally warm.
Such a lovely place, the interior beautifully decorated and picturesque surroundings. We were so spoiled with personalised recommendations, and little touches such as the fire being lit for our return or the lift to the restaurant so that we could try some whiskys. Incredible stay, thanks a lot!
Where to start... what a wonderful four days we spent at Knockdow. From first contact Fatima could not have been more helpful. A warm Scottish welcome from everyone at the Estate on our arrival. Andrea showed us around our suite and shared some local knowledge which was very useful. Homemade cake, shortbread and a lovey bottle of wine as a welcome gift was a special touch.
The standard of finish at Knockdow is truly outstanding! and attention to detail is second to none.
This is a beautiful country home which has been restored with so much love, you instantly you feel it.
It took our breath away. I have stayed in many five star establishments and I have to say I'd put this one right at the top!
Original features have been retained where they could. Just listening to all the stories of the renovations are enthralling.
Grounds are spectacular! The ponds are beautiful and so relaxing to walk around.
We met John, Barry and Micky the dog! The grounds team. All credit to you, as this place is as delightful outside as it is in.
We came across a wonderful mix of animals from the Pheasants casually strutting across the lawn to the Roe deer in the late afternoon. The red squirrels darting about the trees and the Owls to welcome us back home of an evening.
If reading this makes you want to visit , do it and don't delay! This place is sheer heaven from start to finish.
I was sad to leave, but can't wait to return. I think Knockdow has stolen my heart.
I returned home feeling more relaxed than I can remember feeling in a very long time.
Thank you, to all the super friendly team for making our stay perfect in every way.
My only regrets.... I didn't visit sooner and I forgot to sign the visitors book!
Fatima and Stewart, thank you both so much for sharing your wonderful home with us, and to the rest of the Knockdow team, keep up the good work! You've got the mix just right!
Made extremely welcome , nothing too much trouble and lovely welcome pack including home made shortbread that melts in the mouth!
The apartment is beautifully presented to an excellent standard, and is equipped with everything you need, making it a real home from home, but with a touch of luxury.
The location is peaceful and the apartment looks out on beautiful grounds.
There is so much to do in the surrounding area, it is a walker's, nature lover's and canoeist's dream!

I travel a lot for work and pleasure, and it is rare to find somewhere with such warmth of character, such hospitality and such comfortable tranquility as Knockdow House. Not only is it in a beautiful location with some outstanding areas to explore and top quality places to eat, but the accommodation itself has everything one could ask for and more - extremely comfortable and tastefully furnished with the most delightful hosts for the perfect weekend escape.
