Spotless, comfortable, welcoming, tea, coffee & biscuits in the room, plus other nice touches, great breakfast and free wifi. What more could you want in a B&B? There's also off street parking round the back. Would thoroughly recommend Kerr Cottage.

Excellent B & B. Our second visit and as good as before. Better in fact with the new breakfast room. Good access and facilities for wheelchair users. Well situated for exploring this unspoilt area of Scotland.

What a great place to stay, top class accommodation, fantastic hosts and delicious breakfasts to complete the experience. We stayed 2 nights whilst attending a party up the road and couldn't have wished for a better place to stay or nicer people to stay with. It's definitely staying on our top B and B list. Thank you Liz and Ian!

Room Tip: We had the room for less mobile people and it was top class.

Great B&B, have been before and will go back again. Friendly welcome, lovely room, sparking clean bathroom, and a really good breakfast (definitely above average breakfast for me, with some local produce). For me the location is perfect as you can cycle to Dalbeattie MTB trails, or drive to Mabie, Ae or Kirroughtree. Only 5 mins walk to Dalbeattie center - it's not a v big town but has a few shops, and good curry and Italian restaurants. The only downside I can possibly think of is its on a fairly big road, not a big trunk road, but sometimes lorries come past at night and you can hear them. We didn't really find it a problem though.

I stayed here with friends as we were attending gigs within an hour or so away, and this had disabled facilities. From the moment we got there to the moment we left, it was like one of our mums was with us. Really looked after :) room was huge (me and my friend shared the double, my disabled friend had her own, oh and the mattress banter!!). On our last day, we all decided to leave Liz a thank you note. We don't do it often, but in this instance it was seriously justified, left it so shed see it when our room was sorted, anyway she came running out with a tear in her eye hugging us all, which we all got a lump at, was nice to know wed made someone feel good and appreciated :) then the best part ever, while we were packing we thought we had everything, oh dear god no, Lizs hubby came out asking whose knickers were these on the bed, granny pants no less!! Not one of us could even move for ten minutes solid for being doubled up in hysterics!! Was such a great stay though, would return in a heartbeat if ever that way again x also stayed summer 2009 but option below not letting me go that far.
