“Excellent Excellent stay !! Warm welcome and great value !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2010

Elizabeth was fantastic from the word go - a great welcome even though we were hours earlier then planned. Showing us around her beautiful home and making fresh tea and shortbread for us all.

The rooms were beautiful, very spacious with every thing you needed. No televisions but is that really a problem ?? Our bathroom was lovely and clean, and we had it to ourselves which was fabulous.

Breakfast was a feast !! We went down at 9 and left at 11 - home made scones, breakfast however you wish, cereals, tea, coffee, fruit, everything made to order.

A really great stay - friendly, welcoming, great value, Elizabeth really takes pride in her business and I would 200% return !!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2009

Recently we attended a wedding near Thornhill,in Dumfries and Galloway. The reception was at Trigony House Hotel outside Thornhill ( fully booked for the occasion) and they recommended Scaurbridge House for our stay.
The house is 3 miles from Thornhill, on the main road out of Penpont. It is a fine manse, slightly set back from the road and is quiet. Be careful how you turn in to the front drive. It can be a tight turn, especially if you come across the sign suddenly.
The decor is self-conciously Scottish with plaid carpets in the hall,and dark walls and talbe cloth in the dining room. The residents' lounge is spacious and light.
We had a large and comfortable bedroom with King-size bed, and our own bathroom across the landing ( NB there are no ensuites, and some guests have to share a bathroom). The linen and curtains everywhere are of a high quality and our bathroom had a shower and bath-tub.
Mrs.Hughes, who likes to be called E.A ( Elizabeth, Ann) provides a warm wecome for her guests. Everyone is made to feel at ease in their surroundings, We found ourselves happily chatting to our fellow residents, especially at the large "family" table during breakfast,which is as hearty or restrained as you wish. Each one is individually cooked and/or you can help yourslf to cereals, juices and bread at the buffet sideboard. E.A. bakes delicious scones so be ready to have your fill !
Oh, and Mrs.Hughes is an authority on pearls. Honestly ! So if you like pearls, ask.
If you want to eat out in the evening walk briskly for 10 minutes to the Volunteer Arms in Penpont, or drive if there is horizontal rain ( as there was when we were there). Unfussy, nicely prepared food is available in the cafe behind the bar, with a very reasonable, if limited, wine list.
We were lucky to find a room at this B&B, and would enjoy a return visit
