Had a great long weekend with wonderful weather. Lots to do in the immediate area - walks, wildlife, beaches, castles and abbeys. Hosts were understated but friendly, with an excellent knowledge of the area. Delightful seating area in conservatory and outside on the terrace overlooking the water.

Perfectly located guest house in the tranquil village of Kippford. We enjoyed the peaceful setting and the added benefit of the self-contained chalet behind the main house, With it's own front door and small patio area outside (for the warmer weather of course!) en-suite facilities and fridge, it is perfect for travellers seeking a bit more independance and privacy.

We can readily endorse the comments of previous guests. We only stayed one night and would happily have stayed longer. Rosemount's owners have added many thoughtful touches for guest comfort; we even had a small fridge in our room in the annex.

Impossible!!!! From the moment you walk through the door you are engulfed by an aura of calm. Everything about the place induces a peaceful, contented mood. Rooms are very tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. The owners take your comfort very seriously. Breakfast is excellent in the wonderful, bright dining room with entertainment provided by a Red Squirrel feeding outside. Don... More

Great location. Very friendly hosts. Fantastic breakfast (no need for lunch). Very neat conservatory at the front and a patio in front of that - all with wonderful views. Very relaxing - just what the doctor ordered.

Great location in Kippford facing the beautiful estuary with wading birds prevalent and easy to see most of the day. The B and B is very well set out with lovely spacious rooms and a comfortable dining room for breakfast. ( breakfasts were lovely with particularly good quality ingredients and very good quality crockery and tea pots also ) The... More

Stayed two nights and cannot fault Rosemount. Lovely location with fabulous views and sunsets. Friendly hosts and a substantial well prepared breakfast. Rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Will certainly recommend and go back again.

A wonderful break in this stunning B&B with the most friendly and helpful owners in Don and Vanessa. We had a fabulous holiday here and would love to visit again. Best hospitality and breakfast in Scotland! Faultless.
