ESTATE HISTORY

Penninghame House and Gardens is nestled alongside the river Cree and is on the doorstep of the Galloway Forest Park. Parts of the House date back to 1750. The Jacobean style country house was built in 1869. The property was originally owned by the Earl of Galloway, whose family had passed down the estate for decades until reaching John Stewart, the 7th Earl.

Afterwards its was bought, sold, gifted and inherited by many other families all the time changing with each new proprietor. With the applications of Penninghame seemingly endless, the estate took the role of a prolific farm, a host to numerous hunting parties, a WW1 hospital, a farmers’ market and an open prison.

Under the new owner, Penninghame has reinvented itself featuring self-catering accommodation, state of the art conference centre, bespoke cooking school and a one of a kind wedding venue.
