We've stayed at Holmhill 3 times now, each stay longer than the previous! The house is full of period features and a rich history. The rooms are quietly luxurious and perfectly relaxing. Rosie and Stewart are the perfect hosts and the 'Full Scottish breakfast' is probably the best ever! Holmhill Country House is an ideal base to explore the area... More

Everything about this special B&B is charming - the house itself, the rooms so well done with beautiful fabrics and bathrooms, the sitting room. All overlooking the secluded property with lovely gardens. Our dining experience was not only delicious but the serving pieced made you feel special. Our hostess and host were so much fun to visit with. We had... More

I stayed in the ground floor room. Everything was very clean, room facilities include everything you could want and then some! The building, rooms and ground oozes character and staying here was a sheer delight! Owners very friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble for them. Had a full Scottish breakfast which was lovely and arrived quickly, I was... More

Holmhill is absolutely lovely! Rosie and Stewart could not have made us feel more welcome or been more thoughtful. The house is beautiful and spotless, but still retains a homely, relaxed atmosphere. The shared sitting room is huge and so inviting and cosy that you just want to curl up on one of the sofas with a good book. Apparently... More

The title of this review is taken from the reverse of the business card that we got from Rosie and Stewart Lee when we left after spending two very enjoyable nights at this truly excellent B & B. We are not really into hotels, anywhere in the world. Whenever possible we will seek out private rented accommodation if we are... More

We were in the area for a family wedding and spent 5 fabulous nights here. What a delightful spot...the house and cottage are spotless and the grounds beautifully kept. The children were able to feed the ponies and the fish and play on the swing and most of all, kick a rugby ball around. Stewart and Rosie's attention to detail... More

This was our 3rd visit - almost feels like home. Actually it is probably better than being at home! Rosie and Stewart are delightful and so generous with their time. The meals, both breakfast and dinner, have always been delicious and you feel like the Lord of the Manor being served in such glorious surroundings. We'll certainly be calling in... More

We stayed at this elegant country house in a lovely setting with beautiful views over the surrounding hills for 2 nights in early December. The welcome and hospitality was exceptional and Rosie and Stewart made us both feel at home in their beautifully and tastefully decorated house. The rooms are very luxurious with comfortable beds and gorgeous en suite wet... More

A very pretty Georgian house above the river Nith with extensive views and a lovely garden, inside Holmhill is exceptionally well presented and comfortable. Our bathroom was spacious and beautifully appointed, beds and linen of highest quality and the whole house gave the atmosphere of staying with friends. The Lees are superb hosts, very helpful in every way, and whoever... More
