“Burnbrae Mill was a lovely place to stay in an excellent location.”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were a group of 5 and there was plenty of space for everyone, indoors and out. The two spotless bathrooms were a particular luxury we all really appreciated. Very cosy, well equipped house with a lovely view over fields (with horse and sheep). So much care had obviously gone into furnishing the house and the outside, from beautifully hand made curtains and blnds to putting green out front, and not forgetting the milk & eggs and an awesome strawberry sponge gateau which we all enjoyed after our journey there! Really dark skies at night made for plenty of stargazing. The location was very tranquil, but still close to all we wanted to visit in the area. We all want to go back and stay here again, both for the house and because it is in such a great location. Thank you, Allan & family:)

“A peaceful location”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed for a week in March 2015. The mill is very well laid out and has everything you need. The location is nice with good views over the fields containing sheep and cows. With 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms it is suitable for families and couples. The kitchen is large and has the added bonus of a dishwasher so no slaving over the dishes after a long day walking. It is well located for touring the southern areas of Scotland and the Galloway forest is on your doorstep. All in all a lovely place to stay and we hope to return again.

“Beautiful accommodation in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed here for a week in March. The accommodation is really lovely and spacious. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is very well equipped. We happily stayed inside for the days when it was rainy outside and did some baking, played board games and watched dvds while still enjoying the views from the warmth of indoors. It was brilliant watching the sheep from the sitting room windows at all times of the day as they are fascinating, and the amazing skyline is stunning at a different times too. We were also lucky enough to have several dry and bright days. We explored different parts of the Galloway Forest and spotted several Red Kites in the sky and even some deer. The stars at night are extraordinary. This really is a wonderful place to visit to explore the countryside. Very peaceful and relaxing. We had a brilliant break away.

“Christmas stay”
Reviewed 14 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at the Mill for 2 weeks over Christmas. It was a lovely setting with great views. The owners decorated the mill outside and in with a real Christmas tree. It was a lovely touch that the owners took our children horse riding on Christmas day, thank you and see you soon

“An absolute Gem of a place”

Burnbrae Mill is a delight! the building is beautiful and very tastefully decorated to the highest standard. It is spacious but also very cosy and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, and on our arrival, the fabulous Victoria sponge was a real added treat! The bathroom and wet room are very chic and the views from the living room are to die for .
The property is situated in a lovely tranquil area, in which there are many good walks and places of interest to be visited. We enjoyed our stay in the mill so much that we booked to stay here in December 2015 before we left!!!
