Inside castle with 45 rooms, cinema and private beach and it’s on sale for £1.75million

Orchardton Castle, Scotland sits among five acres of land, and even has its own private beach and cinema

A Victorian castle with 45-rooms, a cinema, library and private beach access is on the market for £1.75million.

The Grade B listed property has 20 bedrooms with more than 30 fireplaces spread out over four floors, and contains three full self-contained flats.

Orchardton Castle on Solway Coast, Scotland has five acres worth of grounds covering five acres, and sit in the Gulf stream, allowing for a number of unusual plants to grow.

The historic estate dates back to the late 18th century, but the castle as seen today was mostly rebuilt in 1881.

It was built for Robert Maxwell, 7th Baronet of Orchardton, as a mansion house, and was largely rebuilt in 1881 into the castle it is today.

The castle was renovated in 2011, adding a new roof, electrics, central heating and pipe work and been used for many different things including for filming, as a school, a hotel and even a hospital for wounded soldiers.

In 2016, a black book was discovered which showed the original mansion and that the current building was built with the smaller original mansion still within its walls.

The original builder, William Douglas, was a smuggler, and it is thought that there may be secret tunnel underground that leads to the sea.

Currently, the castle is a family home, but prospective buyers can turn it into a hotel or even a wedding venue.

The home was last on the market in 2018, when it was part of a raffle.

The castle has large widows that all for natural light to flood in, and most rooms and hallways have original wooden shutters.

Guests can be entertained in the music room, and there is a huge 32-foot drawing room which would be perfect for parties.

There are a total of three grand staircases, and one of them includes an original central lift.

The castle contains some smaller, cosier rooms such as sitting room and study, and there is a woodland area with a pond outside.

Orchardton also boasts a private beach that can be accessed through a path outside.

The castle sits close to the villages of Auchencairn and Palnackie and is around 18 miles west of Dumfries.

The property is listed with Fine and Country, and is on the market to offers above £1.75 million.
