A very welcome and friendly place to stay in the area, a quiet and beautiful place along the coast, breakfast was excellent with great views of the red squirrels outside the window. We had heavy snow during our break but the chalet was warm with a view over the snowy estuary, the Anchor pub is a short walk so everything to hand. Take the walk along to Rockcliffe for great views.

Spent a few days at the Rosemount as we were touring around, Don and Vanessa are very welcoming hosts, our room the annex was very clean, comfortable, warm and cozy and we enjoyed our stay very much, the breakfast is excellent will keep you going all day, all in a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: annex room at the rear of the guest house, your own little home from home.

We stayed at Rosemount while in Kippford for a family celebration at the end of September and found it extremely comfortable and convenient. The suite was spacious with a particularly good bed in the back room. The shower was a little on the small side, but that would be my only negative comment. There were lots of little touches - like glasses and a corkscrew in case you wanted to enjoy a bottle of wine in the porch - that made Rosemount feel a very welcoming place to stay. Vanessa and Don were kind hosts who dealt patiently with our rather complicated arrangements of people coming and going and provided a really excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I didn't see the chalet at the back, but would recommend staying in the house if possible. The...

We stayed here after reading other Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We had the suite and our daughter and fiancee had the annex; both rooms were warm, clean, comfortable and well equipped. A fridge is provided for your own drinks (and fresh milk from the hosts), bath robes -in the suite - and lovely views.
The annex shower is not very powerful and noisy in the rain (apparently!), but this can only be expected.
The breakfast was delicious and Don gave some useful tips on places to visit in the area. We'll definitely return.....

My stay at the Rosemount was a wonderful experience. Our room and accomodations were in excellent condition- very clean. The owners provided a delicious Scottish breakfast for free every morning along with other healthy options. Vanessa and Don were the nicest hosts where they made you feel so comfortable, you felt right at home.
Add to the mix the unbelievable beauty of the surrounding nature all around, Kippford was a little slice of heaven. Thanks- John & Ivy

Room Tip: We found the back room very comfortable and we could still see the bay.

We stayed in the suite, which gave us a very pleasant sitting room with a wonderful view over the river (and TV and broadband connection if you could tear yourself away from that); and a comfortable bedroom with an enormous bed and view into the back yard with the opportunity to spot red squirrels at their feeding station (though sadly they were hiding from us!). The bathroom was well stocked with toiletries - including a few little extras like a box of cotton buds - and the hospitality tray was kept well stocked. There's a lovely conservatory downstairs which has its own tea, coffee and biscuits for guests to enjoy whilst looking out over the estuary. Breakfast was excellent, and there's a great pub two doors away, which provided a wide selection of light bites and main meals - if it's still there when you visit, don't miss the seafood chowder which was by far and away the best I'd ever eaten. Parking is on the road outside, and we had no difficulties whilst we were there - though I imagine in high season it might be a bit more tricky. Kippford is a very pleasant little town, with lots of pretty walks of varying degrees of difficulty - you'll appreciate the tea and biscuits even more when you return!

We stayed at the Rosemount Guest House, Kippford in July and i must say the guest house and surrounding area are a fantastic place to stay. The room was well furnished and very clean. The view from our room was breathtaking and the breakfast is as good as any i have tasted, and i have had a few. Friendly and helpful hosts from beginning to end. Highly recommended. Kippford is a real gem and there are some pleasant walks on the doorstep. Lots of things to do nearby. Will certainly return.

Room Tip: Book the suite, its worth the extra cost.
