Set amidst the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful Scottish Machars Peninsula, Ravenstone School Hall offers the perfect rural retreat.
Built in the late eighteen hundreds the School Hall is a listed building of important historical interest, which at its peak catered for 74 pupils from the surrounding farms. Nowadays, the hustle and bustle of yesteryear has been replaced with a warm, tranquil ambience. Refurbished and decorated to a high standard throughout, the School Hall offers the ideal cosy hideaway and provides homely self-catering accommodation.
The accommodation consists of a Victorian tiled entrance porch and inner hallway with a large open-plan lounge and kitchen area, which was formerly the main classroom and contains the original oak paned classroom dividing wall. This forms a wonderful light and airy space, perfect for dining, socialising and relaxing. There is a luxury bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle and an additional utility area with washing machine, tumble dryer and table top freezer.
There are two king-size bedrooms, one which is on the ground floor and the other at first floor level which is equipped with a balcony overlooking an open expanse of fields. A small ground floor room can store two pedal bikes and is also where the garden furniture is stored. For those with an interest in astronomy, the area was awarded one of the best dark sky areas in the world to see the night sky. There is a gravelled area at the rear where guests can sit out and relax in the tranquil atmosphere.
The School Hall offers the perfect blend of both original charm and character whilst providing all modern conveniences. For keen cyclists there are lots of superb places to venture or for those with mountain bikes, the Kirroughtree mountain biking centre is a must. Delve into history at the historic Whithorn Priory or linger over a book and coffee in Wigtown, Scotland's official Book Town. Enjoy one of the many spectacular gardens that flourish in the unique climate in this part of Scotland or take the ferry to Ireland for a day. It forms an ideal base to explore all that the local area has to offer.
