“Outstanding luxury apartments In historic country house”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Live like a laird! Knockdow House offers luxury self-catering apartments in a grand country house, set in beautiful grounds and with the fantastic scenery of the Cowal Peninsula as a backdrop.
Knockdow House is the imposing former home to Clan Lamont and has delightful accommodation packed full of period features, all finished to an exceptional standard.
we enjoyed a fantastic few days away in this fantastic setting.

Following a significant restoration project, the owners of Knockdow House have transformed this 300-hundred-year-old country house, while preserving its considerable architectural and historical charm and rejuvenating the stunning gardens.

There are four luxury apartments within the main house (Cumbrae, Bute, Tower and School House). We stayed in Cumbrae in the East wing and thoroughly enjoyed the delights of country-house living. This is a suite of generous size with two large bedrooms, and fantastic views over the main lawn and gardens beyond. Stylish and upmarket interiors, including period furniture, antiques and original artwork, make this somewhere really special to stay.
The really friendly owners were very helpful and gave us lots of advice on great things to see and do in the local area. 5 star, we will be back!
