“Amazing place! 😁”
Reviewed June 6, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Highly recommended!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dunmuck for a week, fell in love with the house and stunning gardens. ❤
If you love rural locations, walks along the coast and wildlife then this is the place for you! Set in the forest with breathtaking views that surround you.
The house is lovely, like a home from home, with all the home comforts you could possibly need and more, we enjoyed most evenings relaxing in the sun room and playing endless games of ping pong, which was great fun!
There is plenty for the children to enjoy, such as the trampoline, and old oak tree swing, tennis courts a short stride away down the lane, and kayaking.
We were very lucky to have fabulous weather during our stay, and enjoyed days in the beautiful garden watching the wildlife come and go. Some of the sightings were woodpeckers, red squirrels, cuckoo's, owls and other birds of prey, we even saw a baby deer
Laura and Alan were very lovely and welcoming, and very attentive if we needed anything, and Gino the dog is just adorable ❤
We look forward to returning to Dunmuck farm in future

“Fantastic farmhouse and a great base from which to explore”
Reviewed April 5, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We stayed for three nights at the farmhouse and we were looked after so well, Iona and Barbara greeted us and made sure we had everything that we needed. While we unpacked the children were on the trampoline, which in fact is where they spent most of the holiday. Loads of walks on the doorstep and the Cream o'Galloway is a real hit.

We will be back for sure.

Great house for family holiday! Clean very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could possible need. Weather was fantastic for March so kids got great use of the trampoline and the swing the adults even managed a barbecue. Lots of lovely walks from house and beaches a short drive away. Very much look forward to coming back.

“Perfect for family holiday”
Reviewed February 22, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Had a great time in Dunmuck : kids on trampoline, feeding hens and squirrels, beautiful beach nearby, very well equipped cottage and activities nearby for kids on rainy days : the perfect setting for a family holiday.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 6, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay for 12 nights over Christmas and New Year at Dunmuck.
Farmhouse is lovely with everything you could want. The log fire kept us all very cosy (dogs loved to lie in front of it). Lovely bedrooms, children especially loved the window blinds. They also loved looking out the window to watch the birds and red squirrels feeding. Swing was a big hit with big and small. Great walks in lovely countryside from the fields through the woods to the beach. Unfortunately, weather was not conducive to using trampoline or toasting marshmallows at the fire pit so that activity will be for next time
Big thank you to Barbara who sourced and decorated a lovely Christmas Tree, beautiful and simple.
Family are already looking forward to our next visit Christmas 2018

“Great place!”
Reviewed November 9, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Lovely 3 night stay at the farmhouse. The log burner generates plenty of heat ensuring the house was always cosy warm. A bit chilly in winter in the sunroom however there were storage heaters on hand. The property is large and spacious and had everything needed. The kids loved the table tennis, trampoline and the swing.
We visited Carrick Bay and picked fresh mussels for our tea. We also took a trip to Kippford with the weather being so kind so all in all had a great time.
Barbara was great, making sure we had a comfortable stay.
Would love to return in the New Year.

“Another Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed November 3, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Our second visit to Dunmuck was spent in the farmhouse which we found as well equipped as the Mill. A lot larger (4 bedrooms) but still warm and cosy with lots of lovely walks and beaches on the doorstep. Thank you Laura for a fabulous holiday and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
