The guest lounge was large and welcoming... More

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.
