The location is ideal for a walking holiday its in the middle of plenty of Forrest walks there is a beach just down the road also a deer park and plenty of good food pubs and restaurants we will definitely stay again
What a beautiful place to spend a long weekend. There were 5 adults, 4 children and a dog and the house was perfect in every way. The sun room was amazing and we spend a lot of time in here but of an evening the cosy lounge was equally lovely, Beautiful garden with walks right from the door. The children particularly loved the huge trampoline and tree swing and we all loved looking for amethysts in the nearby stream! Sandyhills beach is a short drive away and well worth a visit.
Laura, Alan and Iona could not have been more welcoming yet very unobtrusive - and the homemade banana loaf was delicious!
We have stayed in many self catering houses and this one is our new favourite - we will definitely be back!
Oh...and we can't forget Gino - he's a little delight!
Thanks so much for a brilliant weekend.
Jackie and family.
Situated in 90 acres of farmland and within a 15 minute drive from both the beaches at Rockcliffe and the shops at Dalbeattie, this farmhouse easily accommodated our group of 6 adults and one toddler, and was a lovely place to enjoy a special celebration week.
Inside was bright, spacious and family-friendly, with an amazing garden room/sun lounge which offered plenty of space to eat, chill - and play table-tennis on the full sized table. Croquet was also on offer, outside, plus a trampoline, so the children amongst us were well catered for!
Booking was quick and efficient, and Laura, Alan and Barbara were very helpful with any queries. Just 30 minutes from Dumfries, Dunmuck is very easily accessed, and we will definitely be returning.
On arrival you will instantly fall in love with the house and surroundings and receive a lovely welcome from the owners and family who could not do enough to ensure we had a lovely stay.
The house and gardens are beautiful and the wildlife provides many an hour of entertainment. The bath in the garden is a fabulous feature even in the rain. We couldn't fault our stay at all.
Thanks again Laura
So much to do in the surrounding area but wonderful scenery and walks right on the doorstep. We spent a wonderful week here, four adults and four children, so much space. The house has a wonderful sunroom which was great for family meals, games and relaxing in. Fantastic walks along the Solway coast, beautiful and traditional towns such as Castle Douglas and New Abbey. The owners made us feel really welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to anyone and we are looking forward to a return visit.
Thoroughly enjoyed our week (12th - 19th Feb) at Dunmuck Farmhouse - 6 adults (ages 22 - 68) and a dog. The location is isolated but convenient for beaches, cliff and country walks, shops and restaurants - all within 10 miles or so.
At this time of year, with few animals out in the fields, we could wander for miles over the farm land with the dog off the lead. Weather was mixed but still used the 'hot tub' a couple of evenings and could view an amazing night sky in the warmth. The tennis table in the large sunroom came in useful when we had some rain but at this time of year the sunroom was too cold to socialise/eat in The log burner (with a shed load of logs available) was in use every day and kept the Farmhouse itself plenty warm enough. The shower in the wet-room was very good and we had plenty of hot water. The living room and kitchen/diner were spacious, with enough workspace for preparing food for 6/8. Large bedrooms for this type of property with no complaints about the beds. No problem with the WiFi.
Barbara was most helpful getting us settled in - thank you.
No hesitating recommending this excellent value for money property
I took my young family, in-laws and grandparents to this fantastic hideaway in the Scottish countryside.
Close to the beach - we had a brisk New Years Day walk along the Solway Coast - and far away enough from civilisation to really unwind.
The kids - and adults - loved the big conservatory for playing games and Table Tennis, and the big log burner kept the house wonderfully warm.
Highlight of the stay - wandering our on a clear evening and gazing at the stars. Simply fantastic!
Oh and thank you to Barbara for all of her help whilst we were there.
