The decor is exquisite! Antique furniture and objects are cleverly placed to create an ambience of calm warmth and serenity. Comfort is key here, and you are looked after the moment you step through the door. Laurence does all the cooking, and the food is locally sourced, cooked to perfection! There is no television, which allows you to fully relax,... More

We stayed here for one night on our tour of Scotland. So glad we decided on Glenholme. The interior of the house is out of a magazine, lovely decor everywhere. We stayed in the Curzon room and it was spacious with a very comfortable four poster bed and great views over the garden. We also dined in and Laurence made... More

Flood of superlatives - amazing value for money, brilliant food, nothing too much trouble, fab library, cosy log fires, interiors to die for, bedrooms to re-die for, and all in an atmosphere so effortlessly laid back you could easily stay on forever.

We enjoyed our two nights here. Our room, while not large, was very tastefully furnished with comfortable beds. The large, rain head shower is excellent. I am not a great breakfast person myself but my husband informed me that Laurence's cooked breakfast was the best he has ever had. I am sure his evening meals would be equally good but... More

Our second visit to Glenholme, we spent two nights with friends who hadn't visited Galloway before. We enjoyed the beautiful interiors and the quirky touches in the bedrooms and public areas. The library (which is really the sitting room) is filled with thousands of books on a host of subjects. Laurence and Jennifer are very welcoming hosts and Laurence is... More

We have just spent three nights at the Glenholme Country House, where Laurence looked after us superbly. The house is stylishly furnished and stylised, in its own, well attended grounds, on the main road into Kirkcudbright. Glenholme is above all tranquil and comfortable. Laurence is a very attentive but not intrusive host. Breakfast is nothing short of excellent and we... More

A beautiful home with a wonderful library and lounge to unwind in and a glorious garden to stroll around.
