We spent three nights at Holmhill during October half-term. We booked this lovely B&B because of the excellent reviews it had received on Trip Advisor. We can say, simply, that it exceeded our expectations in every way. The location is superb; the house itself is comfortable and homely, decorated and furnished to a 5* standard; the breakfasts were amazing; and... More

Stayed here for a night en route to Oban. Rosie and Stewart were so welcoming, and made us feel like we were staying in their home. Luxurious bathroom and contemporary bedroom, combined with period charm of the house. A lovely view to match! Breakfast was spot on too. We will return.

We stayed here for a delightful evening one weekend and it was just incredible. Luxurious, comfortable, homely and welcoming. Such a wonderful weekend, Rosie and Stewart are great hosts and the sherry was a great touch. Great breakfast too! This is our happy place and we hope to be back soon! Thanks for a great stay!

This is a terrific, superior B & B in a lovely, characterful old house in tranquil countryside surroundings. We had a large room with a great bed and ensuite with bath and separate shower. The iPod docking station was a nice touch. Breakfast was superb and the hosts were very welcoming. Definitely recommended.

We stayed as a family,husband wife and two grown up children for one night returning south from northern Scotland. Lovely setting for a glorious house and welcoming hosts Stewart and Rosie. Tea on arrival and allowed us to bring a pizza back and eat in the dining room. Lovely bedrooms and a good breakfast, what more could you ask for!

We played golf in the area and toured around near Dumfries and the coastline .An excellent base and always a delight to return to at the end of the day. It is a very special place and one to which we will return. It is very convenient for the cafes and restaurants of Thornhill.

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

All overlooking the secluded property with lovely gardens. Our dining experience was not only delicious but the serving pieced made you feel special.

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
