Holmhill Country House
Ranked #1 of 5 Thornhill B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Rented the attached self catering cottage for a weekend of fishing with the old man. Accommodation was superb, big comfortable beds and great showers!

The location is stunning and it's very conveniently located a short walk from the village centre.

Rosie and Stewart are most hospitable and nothing seems too much to ask. Would highly recommend Holmhill.

Finding gems like this B&B is why we always search out family-run accommodation rather than staying at chain hotels. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent & it was a special bonus that our dogs were allowed to stay with us in such a sumptuously appointed house. The woodland walks & mountain - biking trails of Drumlanrig castle are a couple of miles away down the back lanes, with the internationally-renowned MTB centre at forest of Ae just a 15-minute drive away. Do visit.

Room Tip: If staying with your dog, ask for the ground floor room. This gives easy access into the garden &...

Stayed for a week whilst fishing on the river NIth. A truly wonderful time at Holmhill. Rosie and Stewart are fantastic hosts and looked after us admirably. Food excellent, home made cakes for tea. R and S didn't mind the wet fishing gear (excellent drying room) and our cocker spaniel was very welcome too. Beautiful grounds and views across the Nith and the hills beyond. Very comfortable stay in an elegant and charming old house. The lovely old clocks reminded me of home and brought the house to life! No luck fishing, but the quiet and relaxing time at Holmhill was pleasure enough. Will stay again!

Room Tip: Lovely views from both the rooms we stayed in. Beds very comfortable and luxury ensuite bathrooms

After having spent a few hours researching different accommodation around the area, Holmhill House came out on top and I was not disappointing when I arrived. Located in the middle of beautiful gardens just on the edge of town, I couldn't have chosen a better location.

On arrival we (me and the other half) were greeted by a friendly chap, Stewart. He gave us the grand tour and settled us in well. The room was exceptionally clean and well prepared. Our double room came with a very, very comfy bed, excellent en suite facilities, Sky TV, WiFi, and a view overlooking the garden.

After relaxing in front of the wood burning stove in extremely comfy dressing gowns we headed to bed ready for the following day where we were greeted with possibly one of the best breakfasts I've ever eaten. Fruit, yogurt, cereal and a full scottish, it's fair to say that you're fed well.

Right up until the moment you leave Stewart & Rosie have everything covered.

Visited with our two older children (over 20 years) and we all enjoyed the the rooms, food, and service. Beds (mattress) were the best on our entire trip thru Scotland and a welcome relief after some very poor experiences. It has surprised us how poor the mattresses have typically been on our trip. The only thing missing is wi-fi access to the rooms. Would return in a second!

Room Tip: All seemed good!

In common with other reviews we found Holmhill to be welcoming and comfortable with superb hospitality offered by Rosie and Stewart. Alas we only stayed one night, but I can guarantee it won't be our last!
We arrived late evening and Rosie & Stewart offered to share their evening meal with us, how fantastic. Our room was great, well appointed and comfy. We loved the house, in he morning Rosie gave my wife a mini tour, taking in the two bed cottage which we may well try out. The full Scottish breakfast was excellent with lots of tea, coffee and toast. One highlight for me was Rosie's home made marmalade, delicious!! Would wholeheartedly recommend.
