Hotel Overview

“This white mansion house, set in six acres, has splendid views that stretch over farmland towards the Solway Coast. Owners, Angus and Jane Fordyce, genuinely welcome guests into their home where even Robert Burns enjoyed a dram in past times. The atmosphere is informal; log fires burn in public rooms, family photos and auction finds fill the house, food is homely and the five bedrooms are comfortable rather than lavish. Not always hotel standards but that’s part of the charm.”
