“Peaceful pied-a-terre”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Perfectly located guest house in the tranquil village of Kippford. We enjoyed the peaceful setting and the added benefit of the self-contained chalet behind the main house, With it's own front door and small patio area outside (for the warmer weather of course!) en-suite facilities and fridge, it is perfect for travellers seeking a bit more independance and privacy. The continental breakfast is great and of course no need to join other guests in the main house! Care has also been taken to add a few "special touches" such as hot water bottles, torch, extensive cd collection, quality hairdryer and toiletries not nailed to a wall! Should you decide to stay here, you will undoubtedly experience a warm welcome and a very comfortable stay.

Room Tip: If you prefer to have a bit more privacy, choose the self-contained chalet behind the main house and...

great guest house, clean, good décor, great location, lovely room, tasty breakfast & really nice people.

I have never wrote a review before but we were so impressed I thought I must. I have been coming to this area for years, usually to stay with family so normally I don't have to use hotels or guest houses so it was a new experience but a very good one.

I have stayed in lots of hotels & B&B's in lots of places & most are good yet you can always come up with a but. Here we couldn't no complaints at all.

Room Tip: we stayed in the suite & it was great having somewhere separate to sit

Impossible!!!!
From the moment you walk through the door you are engulfed by an aura of calm. Everything about the place induces a peaceful, contented mood. Rooms are very tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. The owners take your comfort very seriously. Breakfast is excellent in the wonderful, bright dining room with entertainment provided by a Red Squirrel feeding outside. Don and Vanessa are excellent hosts, non intrusive but with excellent knowledge of the area if you need information.
The conservatory was my favourite part, comfortable seating, facilities to make drinks and a view to die for. The perfect place to while away a few hours reading and watching the world go by.

Great location. Very friendly hosts. Fantastic breakfast (no need for lunch). Very neat conservatory at the front and a patio in front of that - all with wonderful views. Very relaxing - just what the doctor ordered.

Room Tip: We stayed in the suite which had fantastic views over the bay.

Great location in Kippford facing the beautiful estuary with wading birds prevalent and easy to see most of the day. The B and B is very well set out with lovely spacious rooms and a comfortable dining room for breakfast. ( breakfasts were lovely with particularly good quality ingredients and very good quality crockery and tea pots also ) The conservatory on the front of the building is a great asset with loads of info housed in the duckets for all guests to use. Refreshments are available if you wish to make yourself a hot drink in there also. It is a great area and well designed.
All in all a very nice stay in a beautiful coastal area almost unsurpassed for scenery when you get to walk along the estuary paths, fantastic and beautiful.

Stayed two nights and cannot fault Rosemount. Lovely location with fabulous views and sunsets. Friendly hosts and a substantial well prepared breakfast. Rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Will certainly recommend and go back again.
