Restoration of Coodham House

Restoration of Coodham House Restoration of Coodham House Restoration of Coodham House

Located in the heart of South Ayrshire, on the edge of Symington village, Coodham House is located within a 200 year old 90 acre estate containing a boating & fishing lake and a mature natural planted landscape.

The Category A-Listed derelict house has been restored to form 6 luxury apartments within the Main House, a three storey townhouse dwelling within the East Wing of the house, a 3 storey dwelling within the original Ballroom and a four storey dwelling over looking the lake within the Old Chapel.

Working closely with Historic Scotland, original details of the property such as the carved red sandstone pillasters & door surrounds, ornate cornices and oak panelled doors have been meticously formed and renewed to accuratley match the original character of the building. The renovation of the house allowed the fabric of the dwellings to be super insulated to minimise energy usage whist an holistic approach to intergrated home technology has been adopted allowing lighting, sound and audio & visual entertainment to be controlled at the touch of a button.

    what has happened to the houldworths graves at the burial site beyond the lake. Is the tall celtic cross still there and is the litchen gate still there. I grew up on thism estate my father was a head gardener there and he buried the family in the graves beside the lake. He remembers burying them and lining their graves that day with purple violets. I remember visiting the graves a child was buried there and his nanny next to him.. Is it being looked after the burial site at the lake and what will become of it now.

        Hi Ann – I received this response from the architect:

        “The graveyard and entrance are still there. The graveyard area will be subject to an estate management plan which relates to the restoration of Coodham House and the associated new housing within the estate. I hope that this helps.”

        If you wish to see images of the graveyard taken during the restoration please email me at john@urbanrealm.com.

        Dear all,
        While perusing the web I came across your comments.
        I am a Houldsworth and a trustee of our burial ground where many of my ancestors are buried at Coodham. However as I live in Gloucestershire I have not had the opportunity to visit the site for years and wonder what state it is in now. If anyone can update me I would be grateful.
