I have stayed at Airds Farm numerous times over recent years and cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone. Tricia & Alan are amazing hosts, friendly and welcoming, accommodating to your every need, nothing is too much trouble, and they are both fountains of knowledge from recommending great walks - places to eat - things to see and do !
The house is in an amazing idyllic setting perfectly situated for visiting Dumfries and Galloway. The rooms are spacious, quiet and sparklingly spotless with all the finishing touches you could wish for with great views of the loch and the surrounding completely unspoilt countyside. There is ample parking and it is easily accessable from the main Castle Douglas to New Galloway road.
Tricia's breakfasts should come with a health warning.....you are going to put on weight during your stay!! They are better than a 5 star hotel anywhere !! Actually I am sure with the range of other nationalities I have met staying at Airds Tricias's breakfasts are probably by now world renowned !! They really set you up for the day ( no need for lunch ) there is always something for every taste, full of good quality local produce and if she hasn't got just ask and next day you will have it. The three Border Collies are very well trained and friendly and are a joy to have around.
Should you just wish to "nip out" for lunch or dinner I would highly recommend the nearby Thistle pub in the village run by Jim with Greek chef Nicos but dont judge the the book by it's cover. The food is to die for mostly sourced locally....rabbit stifado, beef stifado, pork souvlaki, gigantes, dolmades, huge butter beans in tomato sauce,mousaka, tatsziki. The Meze nights are great value for money but are highly popilar and I would recommend booking. If your not into Greek food don't be put off Nicos is just as happy to cook you the standard pub type fare fish and chips, steak and Guiness pie, scampi and chips, gammon, salad etc.
Airds Farm a real home from home, pure bliss but always sad to leave.
