Our stay at Alton Albany Farm spoiled us for all other B&Bs. It may have been the wonderful and attentive hosts, Alasdair and Andrea, or it may have been the restored spacious farmhouse with its mix of rugged stone buildings and tastefully restored interior (with a huge room and super comfy bed). One morning, after a delicious breakfast, we found a great local treat - the Fairy Knowe Trail just a short walk from Barr Village. If you enjoy hiking or cycling, this would ba a great area for a weekend trip. We went to Scotland to unwind and experience the countryside and Alton Albany and Barr Village gave us that.

Often a trip back to a place held dear in the memory turns out to be somewhat disappointing but not so that to Barr. The village is every bit a lovely as I remembered it to be and Alton Albany, though somewhere I had no rembrance of if indeed it was even a B&B all these years ago, is a place that I am very glad to have now discovered. How very pleasant our night there was right from the welcome tea and cake on our arrival, through the unscheduled 'emergency' dinner on finding the local pub closed on Tuesdays, to the extermely clean and comfortable accommodation followed by a most exceptional breakfast. Alistair was a very attentative host and did everything he could to make out stay as nice as possible. My wife and I can both highly recommend this establishment and, indeed, a visit to Barr itself.

Enjoyed the whole stay at Alton Albany including a warm welcome from Alastair and tea and cakes by a roaring fire in the private sitting room on arrival. Accommodation very high standard and in a beautiful location. Lovely clean room with gorgeous comfortable beds and nice views. Alastair did everything to make our stay enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble. Delicious breakfast with local produce too. Would highly recommend a visit.

Had a lovely weekend at this very good get-away-from-it-all B&B - just the right place to stay for visiting the Wigtown Book Festival. The house and its bedrooms are exceptionally spacious and there is an astonishing view down the valley of the River Stinchar. The night sky here is very dark - excellent for stars. Just a short walk into the village, but the place seems so secluded.
Next time I will investigate the local walks.

We arrived in drizzly rain and left in brilliant autumn sunshine. The farm is a real find: set in a lovely valley with a stream running through the garden, it's light and airy with a great sense of space. Warm welcome, flowers in my room, dogs with character and a hearty breakfast outside looking up the valley; I was only sad we couldn't stay longer.
