About Us

Riverview is a hidden gem on the edge of the village of Kippford, the sailing centre of this part of the beautiful Galloway coastline. The site looks out over the estuary of the River Urr and has uninterrupted views to the hills above Auchencairn. Our houses are locally built but inspired by American log houses from the Blueridge mountains in North Carolina. With over 40 years of experience, and with using materials such as Eastern White Pine and Western Red Cedar, our team create stunning contemporary log houses.

Here at Riverview Park, we are very conscious of our carbon footprint. Utilising the best products including insulation, solar panels and triple glazed windows, we provide extremely efficient, energy saving houses.

Riverview is currently in the process of making these houses and will hopefully be welcoming our first guests in spring 2018. Our main focus is exceptional customer service.

Your holiday can be tailored to your needs as we can provide an in house dining service, horse trekking and organise trips out.

There are also two local pubs in Kippford which is within walking distance from the site.

Dalbeattie, a short drive from the site, has shops and a few cafes. It also has a few restaurants, including an Italian and a Chinese. It is also home to Dalbeattie Forest, which includes one of the 7 Stanes so its great for mountain bikers too.
