Penninghame House is a Victorian Mansion house surrounded by the beautiful nature of Galloway in South West Scotland.
Set in it’s own grounds of around 120 acres, consisting of parkland, woodland and a large walled garden. The River Cree runs past the house, adding to the enchanting beauty of the natural surroundings and the comfort, peace and tranquility of the Estate. Entering Penninghame has often been described as entering a magical kingdom. Due to its remoteness and lack of pollution, the area in and around the Galloway Forest Park has been awarded the status of being one of only four “Dark Sky Parks” in the western world. Look up at night and see for yourself the shimmering constellations.
We feel very grateful to hold our courses in this wonderful natural setting and take great care in making choices which support the environment and our local community wherever we can.
- We source our food locally, organically and seasonally where possible
- We recycle our waste wherever possible
- We get some of our energy from ground source heat pumps (GSHPs), which use pipes to extract heat from the ground which can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor or warm air heating systems and hot water
- We support the local economy by buying locally and employing local people in the office and housekeeping
