We stayed at Airds Farm B&B in June 2013 just after Mandy and Mick took over and while there was still a lot of work to be done in updating the place we still really enjoyed our one nights stay. After arriving we were shown to our room (a family room for just the two of us) which was very spacious and I loved the quirky bathroom which was down a couple of steps. This too was spacious with a bath and separate shower and toilet but with a sloping roof. We then headed back down stairs for a little Afternoon Tea.
I loved the view from the bedroom out over the fields and towards Loch Ken and Crossmichael. At night we got a great view of Saturn and in the morning there was the horse in the field and the hens wandering around the garden. In the morning there was plenty for breakfast and I’m told by the other half that the cooked breakfast was delicious.
In terms of location we just really wanted to be close to the Galloway National Park and we actually headed there first for a wander although Clatteringshaws Visitors Centre was closed at the time (less than 30 mins away). For an evening meal we got a few recommendations from Mandy and headed to Castle Douglas which was just 10 minutes away for an Indian (quite good actually). On the way home we took a little detour along the coast for the beaches - Rockcliffe and Sandyhills just 30 mins away, Southerness 45 mins away so it’s definitely a great central location for both beaches and forest.
