DescriptionKnockbain House is situated on David and Denise's Lockett's large, working mixed farm between Dingwall and Strathpeffer, Ross-shire, Highland. The house was completely rebuilt and extended in 2008 providing independent, top quality accommodation for guests.
Although in a completely rural setting, we are only a mile from the centre of Dingwall, county town of Ross and Cromarty. The town has a 24hr supermarket, shops, restaurants & pub, as well as good rail and road connections. We are ideally placed for easy access to the central and North West Highlands - Inverness 12 miles, Ullapool 45 miles, Dornoch 35 miles, Loch Ness 15 miles.
We have one large double bedroom/sitting room with en-suite bath and shower room. a twin bedded room is also available with adjacent dedicated shower room. Both bedrooms overlook the extensive gardens with views to the Black Isle and Comarty Firth and have TV, internet access, tea making facilities and hairdryer. There is also a single bedroom available for an extra family member.
Please note that there is no smoking allowed anywhere in the house.
Although Bed and Breakfast is standard, we can provide a full 3-course evening meal by special arrangement at an extra cost - typically £30 per person including house wine.
Breakfast is made to order with choices of luxury continental style to a range of cooked breakfasts to suit individual tastes. Packed lunches are available at extra cost. There are also good restaurants in Dingwall and Strathpeffer.
Although not fully equipped for disabled access, the bedrooms are on the same level as the entrance hall which has 6 shallow steps up from the driveway. The shower room is designed for disabled access. There are a further 4 steps up to the drawing room and dining room.
