Cumbrae is a characterful, large and airy two-bedroom suite on the first floor of the East wing of the main house. It is generously appointed with antiques and original art work; it has a lovely mix of the old and new and boasts fabulous views across the main garden.

There is a superb double aspect bedroom with a SuperKing size bed and a luxurious ensuite featuring an original but fully restored roll top tub. A further bedroom (SuperKing size bed or twin configuration) with its own separate bathroom makes this an ideal Suite for four to share.

A large separate sitting room framed by two expansive windows and fully equipped kitchen area complete the ensemble.

Cumbrae is a perfect Knockdow suite to unwind and to come and enjoy the great outdoors. Our guests often comment on the silence punctuated only by bird song. After the perfect night's sleep, rise to be greeted by deer grazing on the lawns.
