Liz & Ian are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are perfect and the B&B is so comfortable. We have stayed several times and have booked another 3 visits this year. We love staying at Kerr Cottage and would recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in Dalbeattie or the surrounding area.

My wife and I use several B&B's throughout Scotland during the year. This has got to be one of the best without any shadow of doubt. Liz and Ian are fantastic hosts, maintain all of the property in immaculate condition and the breakfasts are just what the doctor ordered to start the day off. Bedrooms are large, relaxing and very... More

We stayed 3 nights and couldn't have been more comfortable. Between the great breakfasts, the never ending supply of milk for our tea and coffee in our room, the general warmth and cleanliness, we couldn't recommend this place enough! Thanks Liz and Ian!

Excellent welcome, breakfasts and attention to detail. My mother-in-law and I booked the ground floor (room N). Liz gave helpful advice on mobility needs and was very patient with us while we worked through what was best for my mother-in-law's needs and replaced swivel chair for a firmer one in our room. Looking to return with my husband. Good position... More

I have never written a review ever but I must compliment Liz and Ian for being wonderful hosts and providing beautiful and luxurious accommodation. They really have thought of everything.

Kerr Cottage lives up to its reputation. Just had a one night stay on business in Kirkcudbright but booked Kerr Cottage in Dalbeattie on basis of previous recommendations.
