Welcome. Riverview Park 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 westwards to the hills above Auchencairn. 

Starting off with building some privately owned log houses, we are now in the process of expanding our business to include the self-catering sector.  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 using materials such as Eastern White Pine and Western Red Cedar, we 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 aim to provide extremely efficient, energy saving houses.

Our main focus is exceptional customer service. We do everything we can to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We want to make holidays unforgettable, from your very own barbeque hut, to a stroll through the beautiful surrounding gardens, to having dinner cooked for you in your very own log house.

So start making your memories here......



Our houses come equipped with the latest technology, including iPod docking stations, flat screen TVs, top of the range hot tubs, and fast free wifi.

We have also added a few home comforts such as a welcoming wood burning stove, and high quality, comfortable furniture for you to enjoy whilst looking out across the Solway Firth.

You will also find luxury toiletries and big fluffy towels to add to your relaxing experience. Everything you need for a perfect holiday.
