The perfect venue for my mother’s birthday celebration with 37 staying over the long weekend. Comfortable, relaxed and cosy, plenty of room, flexible accommodation with everything provided. Could not have found better!

“Family celebration”
Reviewed 11 November 2018 for a stay in November 2018

I was looking for a venue for my 60th birthday family get together and visited Kippilaw in Feb 2018 and booked shortly after. The house combines being grand /special and also being homely. Our party number was 33 and Lil (the owner) kindly accommodated my disabled sister in law on the ground floor, moving beds about.
Over the 3 nights we stayed the house was warm and we didn't need to light the real fires which are in the ground floor rooms. The aga kept the kitchen really warm. There are lots of original features within the house and quirky bits.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay including the two dogs.

“Kippilaw House”
Reviewed 23 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

I can’t praise Kippalaw house enough. A party of 30 of us spent a weekend at Kippilaw House for my daughters hen party. We had a wonderful weekend in this magnificent and welcoming house. Everything is provided for to make your weekend whatever you want it to be. There are no noise restrictions which is important when thirty chattering girls get together. Self catering is done with ease as the kitchen is very well equipped. We also had a delicious meal served on he second night by Lil. Fabulous place . Thank you so much.

Such a beautiful house and grounds. We had fantastic weather which made it even better. There was so much room and the house had been kept so well. Was very comfortable and peaceful. Would definitely recommend, particularly for a large group.
