I spent 3 splendid days here after attending a family Golden Wedding in New Cumnock. This is an outstanding place, where surrounded by every commfort, one is looked after superbly by Rosie and Stewart. Wonderful country position above the river, with delightful gardens. Delicious breakfast is served in the grand Dining Room. Absolutelymarvellous!! James

A beautiful house in a lovely rural setting, with views looking onto the nearby hills. The excellent accommodation was only topped by the gracious hospitality of Stewart and Rosie. We stayed for three nights, daily finding more to enjoy and to explore. A first-rate accommodation. A good location for exploring the beauty of Dumfries and Galloway. Good nearby walks.

I brought my 80 year old dad to the hotel so we could fish on his favorite river, which is only 100m away from the house. The hotel is excellent, bright and very comfortable rooms which are run by a very welcoming husband and wife team of Stuart and Rosie. They made us so welcome and ensured every aspect of...

Being a 5* establishment our expectations were high, yet they were easily exceeded. Everything about Holmhill just exudes quality, and the experience was made even more enjoyable by the perfect hosts Stewart and Rosie.

An excellent B&B with extremely comfortable well furnished rooms. The owners Rosie and Stuart are extremely friendly and helpfu, ensuring that our stay was most enjoyable. Restaurants were recommended and booked for us with the offer of transportation if necessary. Small touches in the rooms such as docking stations and a decanter of sherry/whisky added to the overall impression of...

If travelling a distance to Scotland this is an excellent stopover. Travelling north after leaving the motorway an easy drive up the A75/76 to the venue. Heading up north later a very nice, if twisty drive, through the Lowther hills back to the M74. The house is a delight. Spacious grounds so very quiet. Friendly and helpful owners (they happily...
