The Cider Tower
A historic, award-winning 18th century retreat for two, surrounded by serene countryside in a peaceful corner of ‘Scotland in miniature'.
Just ten minutes' walk from the charming, ancient town of Kirkcudbright (known as the ‘Artist's Town'), yet feeling aeons away from civilisation, The Cider Tower is an exquisitely renovated 18th century retreat.
Originally a windmill used for pressing apples in the local orchard, the tower has since won a prestigious award for the quality of its restoration. These days, it's a calming and romantic couples' escape from the stresses of everyday life.
Furnished with timeless comfort in mind, you'll discover a gorgeous four-poster bed on the ground floor, along with an indulgent bathroom. Take the stairs to the kitchen and dining area, while a few more steps lead you to the sumptuous living space, with its minstrel's gallery and panoramic countryside views.
With this soothing, historic corner of Galloway so often described as ‘Scotland in miniature', there's plenty to enjoy in the surrounding area, with an eclectic range of shops, restaurants, and fresh-air activities on hand to tempt you.
