“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 11 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Burnbrae Mill in its beautiful settings. We had written to inform Alan that we would be arriving after dark and are truly appreciative of the lighting & warmth of the Mill..plus the yummy cake and milk that awaited us. Thank you very much!

“Terrific house in wonderful location!”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Burnbrae Mill provides the perfect base to explore Dumfries and Galloway: it is perfectly located, being exactly halfway between the charming towns of Castle Douglas and Dumfries (15 minutes drive away), while feeling as if you are entirely cut off from civilisation, with only a very small cluster of other nearby houses, green fields, hills, and sheep to be seen looking out of the window.

The house is also excellent. It is spotlessly clean and felt recently furnished. It came fully equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen (including a dishwasher), as well as some board games and lots of extremely useful pamphlets about local attractions, and a large blue folder providing comprehensive information about the surrounding area (sites, restaurants, pubs, shops etc). The host (Allan) passed by on our first day, to make sure everything was ok, and to reassure us that he could provide any help we needed.

There were five of us staying and the place seemed very spacious. Burbrae Mill is excellent value for money and we would certainly love to stay here again in the future.

This was our second pre-Christmas get-together at Burnbrae Mill and again we were impressed by the time and attention given by the owners in preparing the house for the Christmas period and the quality of the facilities and furnishings which make it a very comfortable home from home.
The house is located in a beautiful part of Dumfries & Galloway, near to the towns of Dumfries and Castle Douglas and with numerous walks and cycle routes nearby and represents very good value.

“Perfect time in the Country”
Reviewed 7 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Burnbrae Mill is pure bliss for a weekend. It is perfect for relaxation and also getting a good walk about the countryside. There was an amazing Victoria Sponge waiting for us and it did not last beyond the first day. Wet room is amazing and the the places is suited up for all forms of media. Beds are comfortable and the place was nice and warm for a bitter November. Will be looking to return again next year.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This traditional whitewashed cottage definitely has the wow factor. It is in a beautiful setting amidst undulating farmland with a stream running past the front of the property, giving a real feeling of getting away from it all. The view of sunrise over the hills from the lounge is stunning. And yet Scotland's food town of Castle Douglas is only a few miles away with a superb selection of independent shops. Inside the cottage is very spacious with three bedrooms, a huge kitchen diner and separate bathroom and large shower room. It has recently been refurbished to a very high specification and you will find everything you would expect and more, including a log burner in the lounge. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome with tips on things to do, a selection of essentials on arrival and a nice surprise that I won't spoil. They have also provided plenty of things to amuse the family on a rainy day with games consoles, board games, DVDs, books and even a dartboard. Superb!

“Mr”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Stayed here at the start of October and had a great time, accommodation was spot on and could not be faulted. Definitely felt like a home away from home for the time we were there. Would recommend it highly to anyone.
