Why Teresa Anne Mckeon chose Kippford

Dorus Mhor is a much loved family home where we have enjoyed long holidays for many years. The view of the Solway coast from the house and garden is simply breathtaking, and that was what we fell in love with first of all. The house and mature gardens have oodles of character, and it is a peaceful place, where you can easily forget that you have neighbours at all. So it is secluded but not isolated.

What makes this house unique

Jubilee path is a driveway which becomes a path leading to spectacular walks to Rockcliffe, Sandyhills and Colvend. The house sits high on Jubilee path and commands views of the Solway Firth, Screel Hill and Rough Island.The gardens are extensive and well cared for.

A house with character in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is wonderful for a family get away (we did need to rearrange furniture to avoid children breaking anything).

All the locals are wonderfully polite, there are some lovely walks just off the door step, a nice tearoom at the bottom of the hill and plenty to do around the area. The garden space is prefect for kids to play and explore.
