Roy and Orla Stairmand look forward to welcoming you to their farmhouse home at The Barr – only seconds off the main road – and awarded a coveted 4 Star Gold Award each year from VisitScotland, the only B&B to receive this accolade in the Dumfries area.
Yes, the views are breathtaking but more than that, staying at The Barr is like staying at your own small private boutique hotel! With only two rooms, we offer our guests a little luxury and much more than most B&Bs! Dating back to the early 1800s, this attractive traditional farmhouse, full of charm and character, was completely refurbished in 2005 to the highest standard.
Ease into the “Barr Experience” with a welcoming coffee or tea on arrival accompanied by some delicious home baking served in our guest drawing room. Soak up the ambiance and chat in comfort in front of a roaring log burning stove.
The guest accommodation is very private, at one end of the property. Each bedroom has its own private facilities and with their own separate entrance, guests may enjoy the independence of coming and going as they wish. In the mornings we serve a traditional full Scottish breakfast as well as a number of alternative culinary delights such as scrambled eggs with smoked salmon or pancake stacks with blueberries or strawberries!
Whether you come for total relaxation, to walk in our beautiful countryside, cycle at Ae or visit one of the many sites of interest around Dumfries and Galloway – the Barr Farmhouse will be your home from home.
With Best Wishes Roy & Orla Stairmand
