This stunning Scots Baronial style Victorian house really is a special find, lending itself to group holidays, celebrations and reunions. Craigbittern is located in a beautiful, commanding position on the eastern edge of the village of Sandyhills, above a lovely bay on the Solway coastline. The views over the Solway Firth to the Cumbrian coast are quite breathtaking, yet the house sits back from the public road creating privacy for guests.
Craigbittern House and Cottage are ideal for a family or friend get together and just a stone’s throw away from the beautiful Sandyhills beach. The house is in two parts: the main house has a grand, elegant ambience and the cottage has a more modern, cosy feel. Please note the properties have separate entrances. The house and cottage combined can sleep up to 13 adults.
Rooms in the main house include: entrance hallway; dining room; sitting room; snug; toilet; kitchen with range cooker and conventional oven; a small study; The Den (gaming room); utility/boot room; 5 bedrooms (2 en suite); bathroom; shower room; toilet. There are two kingsize bedrooms, a super-kingsize bedroom, a double room and a single room in the main house. Guests can enjoy the large, enclosed gardens to the front and rear and a large driveway. There is also a patio area with seating to the side of the house. We have a fire pit in the back garden for guests to enjoy. The garage has been converted into a heated games area which includes football table, darts and table tennis and fridge.
Please note that Wifi in this area isn’t fast due to rural location. Phone signal can be hit and miss depending on your network.
Adjacent to the house is Craigbittern Cottage, which is included in your booking. The cottage shares a driveway and gardens but has its own entrance to the rear. The cottage has a light, airy decor and is welcoming and cosy. On the ground floor is the lounge, shower room, a toilet, a double bedroom and upstairs compromises of a small kitchen and breakfast dining area and twin room.
Craigbittern cottage is perfect for those who perhaps want their own space, or for those who work to a different schedule! There is enough living space in the main house and in the lounge areas to accommodate all guests and a dining table which can fit 13 for dinner.
