Normally I steer clear of B&Bs preferring the modern comforts and facilities of a hotel but Greengate is somewhere very special. Once the home of the artist Jessie M King it retains a character all its own. Owners Colin and Pauline are artists themselves, immersed in the life of The Artist Town and always provide the warmest of welcomes. To...

A relaxing place with many hidden treats. Listen to the man at the door....go for a walk ...take your time...you will want to come back. Explore and find a special place for you. You will find at Greengate two very interesting and warm people who are happy to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

If I had to find one word that describes the Greengate, I would use "charming." Not every BnB needs to exceed a 5 star hotel experience. What you find at Greengate are two very interesting and warm people who are willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible. This is an ARTIST town and if you understand an artist's...

It simply didn't live up to the rave reviews, most of which are quite old. While the house was interesting and very atmospheric it appeared neglected in B&B terms and badly in need of 'refreshing'. The hall and stair carpets for example were very grubby, so our hearts sank as soon as we stepped in the front door. Plus we...

This was a return trip which we've looked forward to doing ever since the first time. We already know the area well but normally travel with our caravan and our family. We originally booked for a weekend in January but had to cancel at late notice because of illness. We very much appreciated the Saul's willingness to rebook at no...

Still unsure what my overall response was to my stay here. I was really looking forward to it because of the history of the house. The owners were welcoming enough, but I don't know if they are aware that everything said in the kitchen can be heard in the dining room - uncomfortable if they are talking about you, regardless...

We are JUST back from Greengate today and what can I say! We had actually stayed in Kirkcudbright for two nights, four days before we arrived and had a terrible experience. The town and people are beautiful... we just picked a poor place to stay. I had actually wanted to stay at Greengate, but they were booked out over the...

My friend and I stayed in the twin room in the loft for two days in October, having decided to explore Kirkcudbright for the weekend. When we arrived - at about ten at night - we were warmly greeted and shown to our room. The room itself was very clean and the tea and coffee making facilities were excellent, there...

(Actually 2004 - our 15th wedding anniversary - but year not selectable! Still owned by the same couple, though) Only one double room, huge private bathroom and sitting room. Luxuriously fitted and historical - house previously owned by Jessie M King (one of the 'Glasgow Girls') and E A Turner, her husband. Current owners are very friendly, Pauline is an...

“There is a little "guest lounge" that is full of books about the area. Plan to spend some time reading before you explore Kirkcudbright. Leave there and walk to the castle around the corner. Stroll along the streets and photograph the wonderful colors of Kirkcudbright.”
