Knockquhassen Farm B&B is just 2.5 miles from Stranraer, and 6 miles from Cairnryan, the ferry port for Northern Ireland. We are situated in the hills to the west of Stranraer, close to Knockquhassen Reservoir, on the Southern Upland Way.
At Knockquhassen Farm you will find peaceful seclusion, stunning panoramic views, good food and a very warm welcome! We have 2 rooms available for guests, one upstairs and one downstairs, both with ensuite showers. (Please note, only the downstairs room is currently available due to Covid 19 restrictions)
Although no longer a working farm, Knockquhassen Farm is home to our animals (cats, horses and hens) and is surrounded by farmland. We welcome well-behaved dogs (with their owners!) and there are lovely walks direct from the house, and many more within a short drive.
£80 per room, per night, based on 2 people sharing. Minimum booking 2 nights. Please see accommodation page or booking link for details.
Discount for bookings of 4 or more nights (when booked direct via website/facebook page). Dogs stay for free!
