We have just returned from a week's holiday staying at Airdsmill which is the 4 bed luxury house adjacent to Airds Farm B&B and also owned by Alan and Tricia. We ranged in age from 12 to 85(!) and everyone enjoyed themselves. The house has a high degree of comfort and everything has been taken care of by the lovely, friendly owners Alan and Tricia who were on hand to make sure everything was fine and offer advice although without being intrusive.
There was a beautifully equipped kitchen and utility room with everything you could possibly need. A comfortable living area with tv, books and chess set etc. All the bedrooms were very comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. Two huge bathrooms with heated towel rails etc. A really huge bedroom upstairs in the old part of the house with its own en-suite too.
The outside space was very comfortable with a wooden seat outside and well tended gardens/rockery. Also a large circular picnic bench where we had a couple of great BBQs. The views from the B&B up the hill are amazing - over to Lock Ken and into Castle Douglas. My son had a great time playing with the owners' three Border Collies who are very well trained and friendly. I jogged down to the main road a couple of times and it is breathtakingly pretty, particularly for nature lovers. We saw red kites, rabbits - not to mention the bulls!!
This is a great base for a holiday as it is centrally situated and we made trips to Portpatrick and to Ardrossan for the Isle of Arran but closer by you have Castle Douglas and Kircudbright just a few miles away. Alan recommended Carlos Italian Restaurant in Castle Douglas and it was a great recommendation as the food was excellent and the staff were friendly and welcoming so well worth a visit.
We would definitely holiday here again. If you want a very comfortable base in a beautiful, picturesque area of Scotland you really can't go wrong here. A big thanks to Alan and Tricia who are definitely onto a winner with this - I'm sure we will be back again...!
