Most booking holiday accommodation want something different from their usual home, and the Cider Tower certainly will provide this. Rich in character and absolutely unique, it should benefit from many repeat holiday bookings if used for this purpose. Of course, it would also make a charming, quirky, permanent home if preferred.
The Cider Tower dates back to around 1710 and was originally built as a Windmill. It is a unique property which has been converted in a sympathetic way coupling the tradition of the building itself with the convenience of modern living.
The property takes full advantage of the unique qualities of the building with the Master Bedroom, Living Room and Gallery/Mezzanine all being within the cylindrical shape of the former Cider/Mill Tower itself.
The Cider Tower is in excellent decorative order throughout and is presently tastefully presented as a successful holiday let. Located on Cannee Hill, the views from both within the tower itself or from the garden ground are spectacular: views over the River Dee Estuary to the south, views to Cairnharrow and Cairnsmore of Fleet to the northwest and panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. Not only are the views stunning in daylight, the sunset from this property is ‘something special’.
Cider Tower is situated approximately 1 mile from Kirkcudbright town centre. Being positioned on the outskirts of Kirkcudbright, it allows convenient access to all local amenities whilst offering the opportunity of rural living. Kirkcudbright is an attractive harbour town situated on the banks of the River Dee. The town itself is of historic
and architectural interest with its ancient High Street, Tolbooth Arts Centre, Stewartry Museum and numerous galleries. Long frequented by artists, Kirkcudbright was home to the renowned artist, EA Hornel, one of the “Glasgow Boys”. This tradition is maintained today by a flourishing colony of painters and craft workers which has led to Kirkcudbright being named the “Artists’ Town”.
Kirkcudbright enjoys a wide variety of mainly family owned shops, pubs, hotels and restaurants, whilst offering a wide range of facilities, including its own golf course, marina, swimming pool and an active summer festivities programme, including its own Jazz Festival and Tattoo.
