Description

This 14th-century castle is the perfect retreat for a luxurious gathering with family, where you can relax with your feet up around the wood burner. . Knock Old Castle dates back to the 14th-century and has been fantastically resurrected by the current owner into a truly unique, whimsical, fairytale castle. In what has been a 5 year long project, this detached castle has been lovingly restored. Local craftsmen have utilised their skills, imagination and expertise to make this property into something that will amaze every guest.

From the quirky doors and interior, where no straight lines will be found, to the sauna in the tower, and the painted ceiling in the keep, to the stunning views over the sea from the glass domed lookout, and not forgetting the sheep grazing on the wild flower roof. Old Knock Castle will be sure to exceed every expectation.

The castle is situated on the Ayrshire coast, in a private setting, 200 yards from the owner’s home, with only a short walk from the shore and close to the bustling town of Largs with its shops, restaurants and promenade. This holiday property is ideally located to explore the islands of Cumbrae, Arran and the Isle of Bute. Ferries run to Dunoon and the Cowal Peninsula, giving access to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

Ayrshire offers a varying coastline with villages, beaches and rocky coves to explore, and is an ideal location for cyclists and walkers, with Skelmorlie heralding the start of the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100 mile long coastal walk. Inland there is walking, cycling, gardens and castles to visit, riding, fishing, racing and a choice of golf courses, including the world famous open venues of Troon Prestwick and Turnberry.

Culzean Castle Country Park, extending over 550 acres, has a network of wooded trails passing along the beach. Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily reached for a day trip, with rail links available from the town. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.. Ground Floor:

Guest Comments

"Brilliant property for a big family getaway! We went for a 50th birthday celebration to stay somewhere special and it didn't disappoint.I give it 10/10 for everything apart from few little niggles on equipment e.g. 2 slice toaster but adequate for amount of guests, few cooking utensils and bowls to add to collection. The view is breathtaking and the attention to detail in all the rooms is amazing, would definately go again and recommend highly to others."

"Wonderful stay! We loved every minute of our stay! Thank you! Thank you!"

Deana, November 2018

"A truly unique and magical experience! The castle is very comfortable and has been filled with quality furnishings etc. Read the story of it's history and refurbishment if you go, it's fascinating. You can meet the lovely owners too who made us feel very welcome. The welcome pack was a first for me and was very useful. The view from the hot tub was the best I've ever had. Look out for the Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales toilet too. 4 floors and lots of stairs so not suitable for people with mobility issues. Our whole group had a wonderful time."

Robert, April 2018

"A beautifully and skilfully restored castle which perfectly blends original features with modern living. The attention to detail has to be seen to be appreciated. The views over the sea to the islands from the garden and tower room on clear day are superb."
