The Ark Gift Shop



The Ark Gift Shop at Kippford – coastal and country style gifts with a touch of Scotland!

The Ark Gift Shop is located in the scenic coastal village of Kippford on the Solway coast offering a range of gifts and accessories from nautical items to local arts and crafts and childrens toys, and now a deli. It is well worth visiting!

The Ark was born from Denise Yates’ passion for beautiful design, her career in interior fashion and finding one of the most beautiful locations to be able to display her handpicked collection of gifts and other luxury items.

The Ark in Kippford is on the waterfront of the Solway Coast and is the destination of many a rambler, photographer, wildlife enthusiast, sailor and the family who are just heading out for a fun picnic on the beach.  Having once been a busy fishing village, Kippford is now home to the Solway Yacht Club.

It is from this location that Denise takes her nautical theme where you can find the highly popular and beautiful bird scupltures nestled throughout the display of childrens clothes and toys, handmade scarves and jewellery, and a collection of both traditional and some more unusual gifts and momentos dotted throughout the shop.

The Ark is also home to a delectable deli serving up all sorts of wonderful fillings on locally baked bread. To complement the deli counter Denise also stocks a selection of artisan products such as cheeses, chutneys and savoury biscuits, all locally sourced from award-winning producers.

Opening Hours

Mon – Sat 10:30 – 17:30;  Sun 12:00 – 17:00
