Just wanted to say what a warm welcome you gave us at the tastefully furnished Barr Farmhouse. Great views, great breakfast and great bed – more comfortable than our own one at home!
Thank you very much for providing a great place to stay north of the border. You made us feel very welcome. Nice rooms, lovely breakfast and we really enjoyed the views. We will definitely be back soon.
We have stayed at The Barr on a number of occasions and each time has been a delight. The owners have created a friendly and relaxing atmosphere in their conveniently located and characterful farmhouse. We love the black and white bedroom. The whole place and the nice touches like starched linen tablecloths and napkins in the dining room, make this a very welcoming and special place to stay.
We stayed at The Barr Farmhouse this year and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The farmhouse itself has been completely refurbished and has lots of charm. It sits on the side of a hill with lovely views over the surrounding countryside from most rooms including the guest bedrooms and the bathroom! On a clear day you can see Criffel. Our bedroom was very comfortable with a well-stocked tray for making tea or coffee. The full breakfast was beautifully presented in the dining room with real linen and dining service. It was a great way to set ourselves up for a day walking and exploring and we were very grateful to be able to relax in the large but cosy drawing room at the end of the day. OK, so the lane up to the farm was a bit rough but no real hardship. All-in-all, a lovely place to stay with very welcoming hosts and lots to see in the area.
I cannot speak highly enough of the lovely time we had at the Barr Farmhouse. It was the perfect base for our 3 days exploring the south-west of Scotland. The extremely tasty (and filling) breakfasts in your lovely dining room set us up for the adventures ahead each day.
With two teenage children to entertain in the evenings it was wonderful to be able to make use of your comfortable drawing room where we played scrabble. Our bed room, with its stylish decor and oh, so comfy bed was perfect. All in all an ideal antidote to over-crowded London. I hope you managed to get the ketchup stain out of your lovely linen tablecloth; the breakfast was scrumptious and filling enough even for the voracious appetite of my 15 year old. I do envy that vaulted ceiling in your dining room.
Our room was comfortable and cozy with a spectacular view of the breathtaking surroundings, everything from the area’s very picturesque bright green rolling hills and towering mountains in the distance to, at times, grazing sheep! The entire house was decorated so tastefully and the inn keepers Roy and Orla were so gracious and accommodating, we enjoyed their humor and charm. Every breakfast we were served in their beautiful dining room was absolutely delightful and no luxury spared. The ingredients were fresh and prepared just to order, even the orange juice! We would definitely not hesitate to recommend the B&B to anyone who is staying in the lovely and quaint Dumfries area.
