"A wonderful period property prepared for modern day living"

Such a breath-taking house made such a fantastic stay! From the moment you drive up to the front door until you climb into one of the huge comfortable beds at night, you are amazed by this wonderful old house. Such charm and character oozes from all of the many rooms, big enough for 18 ladies to relax and enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings. The kitchen has every piece of equipment you could imagine. Everywhere in the house is spotlessly clean, especially the many bathrooms. We enjoyed a formal dinner in the dining room and an informal BBQ on the terrace. The owners couldn't have done any more for us, taking us round the house on our (early) arrival and showing us where everything was and how everything worked. You get lost upstairs as you go from one huge bedroom to the next - we were like children (and actually all agreed our children would love it!) We sat outside most of the first night enjoying the views in complete private. Following shooting at a local estate the following day, caterers (familiar with the house) brought dinner and served it to us in the dining room that comfortably sits 18. There is plenty of space, multiple sitting and drawing rooms with Sky TV (if you ever get the time to watch it) and wifi. We will definitely be back. We all simply loved it.

"This house is amazing"

We stayed at Dumcrieff house for my daughters hen weekend. It was perfect in every way. I would highly recommend it and will definitely book it again. We all had a fantastic time and went into Moffat to the Buccleuch for dinner on the Saturday night which was also excellent. Amazing weekend .

"Beautiful house in beautiful surroundings"

We chose this house as it was conveniently located for a re-union of Uni friends, some who live in England, some in Scotland. It's located only about 10 mins from the motorway. The house is beautiful, and very well equipped and maintained. We were a group of 11 adults and 4 infants. The site does say it may not suitable be suitable for infants due to the close proximity of the river, but we had no issues with this, the river is well fenced off from the garden. The bedrooms are stunning and bathrooms equally so. The kitchen is well- equipped and fantastic as a family room while the toddlers ate. The reception rooms are spacious and there's even a large formal dining room, where we ate our Indian takeaway on our first night! It was November when we were there so, yes, it was cold, but that's only to be expected, so bring slippers and a warm jumper or 2! The crowning glory for us was the grounds. The toddlers loved it, splashing in puddles and collecting leaves. We can't recommend Dumcrieff highly enough and look forward to booking it again soon.
