This is a really lovely place to stay, with extremely accommodating hosts (who graciously and with good humour put up with my peculiar dietary requirements). It has a really nice atmosphere and strikes a good balance between the hosts being available but not hovering around all the time. It is so much prettier than it looks in photos. The breakfast is delicious; never thought I'd love haggis!
Our room was beautifully decorated and I loved the bathroom and the lavender-scented toiletries. The shower is awesome. I wasn't keen on the bed because I prefer a sofer bed, but my husband who isn't weird like me had a great nights'sleep every night. Besides you will never please everyone when you try to find a bed that suits everyone!
Hillcrest is in a good location and extremely close to the pub :) (FYI I'm talking about The Ploughman's Inn in Wigtown; we tried the Bladnoch Inn but the food was mediocre and the atmosphere decidedly chilly; go to the Ploughman's where you'll get a warm welcome, good food and a bit of banter with the locals if you want it)
They have 2 cats, a dog and some rabbits which would be enough to convince me of its merits for that alone; it feels like home.
If we return to Dumfries & Galloway, Hillcrest will be the first place we check for availability.
