Three of us booked into Dunns Houses Farmhouse B &B on our way to Scotland and had a wonderful experience. Arriving that evening we laughed winding our way across the country road surrounded by thousands of sheep, we pulled up the beautiful drive way where Trish, the daughter of the owner, greeted us warmly upon arrival and helped us carry our bags up to our rooms.
The rooms were well furnished: while there were a few too many horsey nick-knacks, the beds were laid with nice linens, there were more than enough thick bath sheets and towels, and the bed was comfortable and had an assortment of pillows. Walking outside in the gardens before dinner was delightful as the light was magic.
The room includes full breakfast which was amazing. However, what is special is that Dunn's offers dinners. In that we were arriving late we chose to accept this option, and again, I was traveling with a colleague who has serious food allergies. Immediately upon booking, Jane, the owner, sent us the menu to preselect our 3-course dinner and inquired if anyone in our party had any food issues. Trish it turns out runs the restaurant and we were delighted at her remarkable attention to detail and the quality of the food she served. We brought our own wine and while preparing dinner she brought us beautiful leaded crystals glasses as we enjoyed the sunset.
If the “Percy” room is available, it has windows on 2 walls and offers an amazing view. If you want to catch the morning light, I did, don’t close the drapes and chances are you will be treated to a show of morning light as I was! Picture included!
I cannot recommend a visit with Jane and Trish highly enough, and if you are horse lovers or appreciate landscapes and gardens you are in for a treat!
