Our second visit to the Old School house and stayed in a different room this time. We were not disappointed. It was very comfortable. Already thinking of when to book again. On our arrival we were made very welcome. The room was very comfortable and clean with everything we needed in it. The bathroom was very clean and spacious. There...

Loved everything about this B&B. We stayed in the Geography Room which is phenomenal. Beautiful décor and furniture throughout the whole property. Breakfast was excellent and we were very well cared for by Liz the owner. Will be back again for sure.

Had a comfortable two night stay here while we went to the Dark Sky Observatory. Room was spacious, clean, and warm. My only regret is I only bought two jars of Liz's homemade bramble jam - it's too delicious. Wish I'd bought more. Thanks!

A lovely warm welcome greeted me on arrival, where Liz gave me a brief tour and showed me my room, which was massive and beautifully appointed with a really comfy bed. Mike cooked a knockout breakfast in the morning where they use locally sourced produce, complemented by home made jams and marmalade. Search this place out and you'll not be...

This accommodation is of the highest standard, the location was great for where I needed to be and with all the comforts. A brilliant view in the morning and well cooked breakfast. I cannot find any faults at all.

Booked this property on behalf of a colleague. Travel arrangements are an every day part of the job and it's always difficult to meet everyone's wants, needs and tastes, especially in an area we've never worked in before. The guest named this as the best accommodation we have ever booked and is keen to stay again

We couldn't have asked for more from this lovely B&B! Mike and Liz are great hosts, welcoming and helpful in every way. Our room, the History room was so comfortable with really interesting furnishings, a huge amount of space and a lovely deep bath. The entire property has been lovingly renovated with an attention to detail that is second to...

Not only is this hotel (B&B) so very peaceful and quiet, the breakfasts cooked by Mike are pleasure, to look forward too. Mike uses local Ayrshire Back Bacon and Liz's eggs from her hen's. Liz’s breads, marmalade and jam’s are absolutely delicious. Both Liz and Mike are so friendly and there is absolutely nothing; they will not do for you....

We really enjoyed our stay. We were made to feel very welcome. It's a beautiful place and the owners have out a lot of effort into making it so special. Everything we could possibly need was thought of. Thankyou. We have already booked our next stay.
