No problems here. We are just back from a 3 night stop over at Barrasgate.House. The facilities were excellent and the owners Alan and Joan could not have been more helpful. The location was ideal for trips into the Dumfries and Galloway region. The free Wifi meant we could plan our trips and visits with ease. Breakfasts were superb and... More

A lovely room in a quiet rural location with excellent bathroom facilities (under floor heating, quality shower and bath) and a very comfortable bed. We brought our two labradors and had the use of the conservatory which, although a touch cold, gave us plenty of space as well as direct access to the garden. The owners were very hospitable and...

The lady owner was lovely and friendly.The only issue I had was the breakfast was swimming in grease. My husband ate it but I couldnt. I would say if youre ok... More
