This small hotel is a real find. It is classed as a boutique B&B but has all the facilities and atmosphere of a small country house hotel. The rooms are comfortable and spacious as well as being very stylishly decorated. There are pleasant public rooms, including the small bar with a log fire and a sunroom with beautiful views. The...

My partner and I stayed at Windlestraw for his 50th birthday and it was excellent. High quality but comfortable and relaxing. Lovely room (MacIntosh), particularly liked the huge bath with champagne glasses in the rack, which we had to use, of course. Loved the staircase carvings of owl, dragon, gargoyle. Dinner on both evenings was of very high quality. All... More

We spent 5 nights at Windlestraw Lodge from 21 Oct 2013 to 26 Oct 13 which was our honeymoon. It is difficult to put into words just what a fantastic house this is, the room was excellent with lovely views and beutifully furnished. Now the food was out of this world, lucky we slimmed before we went! Both Dinner and... More

Over a week later and they are still calling me up to thank me for such a wonderful stay, they particularly loved the surroundings, the food... More

I stayed at Windlestraw with my wife, two young children (5 and 9) and large dog. The hosts could not have been more welcoming. They put us in a fabulous room with plenty of room for the 5 of us - we wanted to be together given the age of the children. The room was spotless and bathroom the same.... More
