Challoch Farmhouse

Location Map
Location Map

Challoch Farmhouse is a traditional Scottish farmhouse which has been carefully renovated and upgraded over recent years yet has retained much of its cottage charm and period features. It is pleasantly situated amidst unspoilt rural countryside, overlooking its own land of approximately three acres. The property lies about 9.5 miles south of Stranraer on the Rhins Peninsula, an area of unspoiled natural beauty which enjoys a remarkably mild climate and westerly aspects across the Irish Sea to the Mountains of Mourne. The surrounding area offers beautiful coastal waters and some of Scotland’s finest fishing and shooting. There are three golf courses in the area and the championship courses of Turnberry, Royal Troon and Prestwick are about an hour and half’s drive away. Sandhead village offers local services, as does the nearby village of Drummore, whilst a more varied range of shops and amenities is available in Stranraer. Primary schooling is available in Sandhead with secondary schooling in Stranraer. Regular high speed ferries travel from Stranraer to Belfast and there is a railway station with connections to Glasgow.

A derelict cottage lying to the south of the farmhouse may be available by separate negotiation. It occupies a generous sized plot and would be suitable for conversion subject to the relevant planning permission being obtained.

Directions:- From Stranraer follow the A716 signposted for Portpatrick and Drummore. Continue along this road, passing the village of Sandhead. Turn right and follow the signs for Kirkmadrine Stones. Pass the Kirkmadrine Stones and after about 300 yards turn right into Challoch Farm Road. Follow the road for about half a mile to Challoch Farmhouse.
