We have stayed at Bessiestown a number of times over the past few years. We are always made to feel very welcome by the owners, who cannot do enough for you. The B&B rooms and the cottages have always been extremely clean and welcoming and very peaceful and the scenery looking over to Scotland is wonderful. We cannot wait to... More

This is the second time we have stayed here to break a long journey and both times we have beenwarmly welcomed and made to feel at home. We especially like Margaret's evening meals - and the breakfast is excellent too. It is a beautiful area and we would like to return and spend more time here.

Stayed in this lovely Guest House in April 2013, Staff very friendly and welcoming. Only had breakfast here which may I add was a delight. We had a large room (Which also had an adjoining room for families) All was spotlessly clean throughout. Would visit again if ever in the area.

Discovered Bessietown in Farmstay brochure a few years ago looking for overnight stay on our way back from Scotland. First impressions were good as we drove up the drive & saw the indoor swimming pool. Jack welcomed us & carried our luggage to our room which was immaculate, tea, coffee & biscuits. Fresh milk & water in the fridge. Our... More

Amazing welcome, rooms excellent standard and food fantastic. Whilst it is a little off the beaten track it is well worth the effort. There are some lovely places to visit in the area and we had a super time.

Quite simply a pleasure to stay in a lovely establishment with gorgeous grounds and countryside setting. The owners should be so proud. The accommodation was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and ever detail was covered. We booked a double but actually had our own front door and two bedrooms as well as open plan living room/dining room/kitchen. The furnishings are of... More

Thank you to owners and staff for our wonderful one night stay at Bessietown B&B. I found this on Trip Advisor and the ratings are well deserved. These people know how to care for people, excellent service and both breakfast and dinner were superb. They have a sun lounge with wifi access, bar lounge and spacious and spotlessly clean accommodation.... More

We had a one night stop over after spending the afternoon at Caerlaverock Wetlands Centre over the border near Annan. We were absolutely delighted with the accommodation which was beautifully decorated with loads of lovely finishing touches. Breakfast was delicious and all the staff were so hospitable. We had never been to that part of the country before and the... More
