Coopers Knowe House provides the perfect location both for those seeking rest and relaxation as well as for those who like to keep active. Extending to some 65 acres, the estate offers a range of ways to while away a few hours close at hand.
Either on the estate itself or within a few minutes’ walk of the house, there’s plenty to do.
- Directly outside the house, there are a number of patio areas where you can simply sit back, relax and soak up the views. There is a barbecue to enjoy when the weather’s fine. Ancient woodland is within a few moments’ stroll.
- There is a shingle beach directly in front of the house which can be used to launch your own kayak if you bring one with you. A path through the woods takes you to a private sandy cove – perfect for an enjoyable dip when the weather’s warm – or at any time of the year if you own a wetsuit.
Flora & Fauna
There is a great diversity of wildlife. From the lounge window you are highly likely to spot both land and sea birds; red deer are particularly common and freely roam the grounds and woodlands. There have also been sightings of pine martins, pole cats and a genuine ‘wild cat’. Down by the loch, you may catch a glimpse of otters and occasionally even dolphins, basking sharks and seals.
The Local Hills
Without the need to get back in the car, you can tackle either Rois-Bhein (Roshven) or An Stac, both of which are classified as Corbetts.
And in Roshven we have as our neighbours, Leon and Alison Durbin who run Wildwood Bushcraft . Wildwood Bushcraft offers a range of bushcraft survival courses in the beautiful ancient woodlands in the surrounding area and, availability permitting, can organise a course tailored to your particular requirements.
