Came up to Dumfries and Galloway for an interview and wanted a clean, quiet place and a bit of luxury before the dreaded day. Summerhill exceeded all expectations. Tina greeted me warmly and even gave me a plate and napkin on arrival for my dissolving sandwich purchased in Biggar. I had my own deck and the room was furnished in relaxing duck egg blue's and golden tones. Bathroom was luxurious: felt like a queen. Added touches - a good range of toileteries, towelling slippers and robe made me feel even more at home. Tina designed the house herself, maximising the light. She's chosen high end fittings throughout. Tina is a very gentle and friendly host and easy to talk to. Robin has a bike hire company which he runs from the house and I cycled out to Threave that evening. Castle Douglas is renowned for its food producers and I had local granola, sausages. bacon and eggs. You also get a good selection of fruit and yoghurt - grapes and berries. I will be back, it's such a beautiful area, great for walking and seeing wildlife and this is the perfect place to stay.
