Douneside was recommended to us by my parents and my aunt and uncle who went there together annually during their retirement until they could no longer manage the journey north! This unique place is located in exceptionally beautiful countryside and offers peace, quiet, a comfortable and clean environment, friendly service and excellent food. These things are important to us, so how could we not enjoy being there? Having enthusiastically recommended it to a number of friends after our first visit, two couples have visited on our recommendation and enjoyed it as much as we did on the two occasions we went there. No doubt being lucky with the weather as we were, helps, as there is so much to enjoy out of doors in the area. We are already looking forward to going again and hopefully with children and grandchildren next time! Maybe with friends as well and their children and grandchildren! The facilities for young families are as good as everything else at Douneside. I can't speak highly enough of this exceptional place. Out of tragedy has come something very, very good. A remarkable and moving story.
