The whole place is spotless, the owners very nice, and the Breakfast was outstanding. Double room and B&B was £60, but well worth it. I wouldn't hesitate in booking again. It is a 5 minute walk to the Gretna Outlet Retail Village.

We stayed here on a Lands End to John O'Groats cycle and the owners were very welcoming. They stored our bikes and couldn't have been more helpful. Comfy beds, clean room and a great breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for our wedding in April 2015. Cath took excellent care of us and upgraded our room on arrival. As vegans, we were well catered for at breakfast, too. We would definitely stay here again and can thoroughly recommend it!

Stayed here for one night on our way back home to Dundee. What a find. It was spotlessly clean and the room we stayed in had everything you could wish for. There was a lovely choice at breakfast and everything is freshly cooked and nicely presented. Would definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights, to attend a wedding at the "old blacksmiths shop". We found this to be about 5 to 10 minute walk from here. After a warm welcome from Cath, we were shown to room 1. Top marks for comfort, cleanliness and those little added extras . For example, proper mugs in our...
