We are a group of 8 couples approaching retirement age. We have stayed at Drumcrieff mansion for a long weekend for the last 5 years. Wonderful house with everything you need for a fabulous break. The house is immaculate and the owners make sure there is everything you need for a wonderful break with family and friends. We will be returning again in 2018 for our 6th visit can,t wait xx
We have been visiting this amazing house for 5 years now.As a party of 16 this year was no exception,the views from the absolutely fabulous bedrooms and living rooms take your breath away.The owners are lovely people and make you feel so welcome.The little town of Moffat is on your doorstep and Dumfries is just a short drive away,not that you need to leave this beautiful home at all.Do yourself a favour and pay this hidden treasure a visit I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.We cannot wait to return .
Dumcrieff was the hub for all my family to stay for the weekend of our wedding. The house is full of character and absolutely immaculate. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space yet with lots of spaces for everyone to come together. It was so relaxed. We can't say enough about Demetra the owner who was a huge help and went out of her way for us. Everything that we needed was there. We did not want for anything during our stay. A fully kitted out kitchen with all that we needed to hand was incredible. We really were made to and did feel at home in Dumcrieff. Thank you so so much Philip & Demetra for adding to a magical weekend.
What an amazing house to celebrate a special birthday. We are now trying to look for another occasion to return!
The owners are so welcoming and were very helpful in answering any questions I had.
The house was spotless and has everything you need for all occasions.
We chose to use the private chef/butler service the owners recommended and they did not dissapoint. the food was fantasic and they were so helpful but blended in so you still felt as though the house was exclusively ours for the weekend.
We also used the events team- Action Glen who again was recommended by the owners. This was a fantastic idea and the team from Action Glen were great fun and entertained our slightly competitive family!
A truly special place that all our family loved and will leave us with some very special memories.
This is just the most wonderful House and Location for a Family and Friends celebration or get together. My wife's 70th Birthday was celebrated in style. Fourposter Beds, lavish Bathroom, spacious Lounges with wood burning stoves, even a mini Grand Piano.
The Dining room, seating 18 and the Snooker room were well used as was the smaller games room, with Table Football and Air hockey, by the children small and large.
I must mention Ian and Ester Murray, the Butler and Chef, who were superb and made the whole Easter long weekend go without a hitch. Ester must write a Cookery Book!
The super grounds, alongside the River make an ideal landing site for a Helicopter, trips in which we all enjoyed. Lifetime Memories for all the young children especially.
Thank you again Philip for allowing your super Home to be used by us all.
Barry and Sue.
We loved Dumcrieff house and from the moment we walked through the door with Philip and his wife we knew we would have a great weekend. The information they shared about the house and it's amenities was great! The house is huge and all 18 of us felt so relaxed and comfortable during our weekend stay with lots of space for everyone to be together and also space to do your own thing. The house had everything we needed and we made great use of all the areas relaxing in the main room and sitting room, having a good chat in the busy kitchen, enjoying afternoon tea and an Italian meal in the dining room and playing snooker, pool and air hokey in the games rooms. The bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely and beds were so comfortable. We had a lovely walk in the grounds. We loved our stay for our all girl's 40th weekend celebration and hope to return again!
We have just spent THE MOST enjoyable, memorable and luxurious weekend of our lives. We booked Dumcrieff House to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday with our close friends and family - our expectations of the weekend were surpassed in every way possible. Philip and Ian helped with planning the weekend in great detail and helped me to make this such a wonderful experience for my wife. The house, food, rooms, welcome, surroundings, planning and the warmth and support of Ian and his wife - nothing could have been better or improved, everything was just perfect. Thank you also to everyone who came, what a wonderful weekend and amazing memories to cherish. No hesitation in rating this wonderful house and our stay as excellent.
