What a wonderful place to stay!
Looking for a place to stay whilst on a short break, Kirkpatrick House offered us a convenient position, closely situated to Gretna and only half an hour or so from Dumfries.
We stayed in the Family Double room with external bathroom as it was listed as a very large comfortable family room. On arrival at the beautiful Georgian period residence, we were warmly greeted by Carol who could not have been a more pleasant hostess. Over the few days we stayed, Carol provided more than adequate information and guidance on the history of the house and local area as well as sights to see and things to do, even so far as providing us with several maps and plenty of tourist leaflets. Carol’s recommendation to visit the Globe Inn in Dumfries we are especially grateful for as we tasted one of the most wonderful burgers we have ever eaten. The room we had booked was everything we had hoped for - spacious and immaculately kept with pretty views of the local church and surrounding fields. The level of cleanliness not only in our room and bathroom but throughout the entire residence was spotless. An important feature for us is that the beds and pillows have the appropriate protectors and we were delighted to find they were all present. The rooms were serviced every day throughout our stay, with fresh towels, tea/coffee etc. always changed & replenished. The family room proved to be a most comfortable area to relax in with an open log fire keeping us warm during the evening and the rooms sufficiently heated during the night - we would however suggest that you pack an extra jumper if you plan to be out in the winter months as it can get a bit nippy. Carol was also able to recommend the local pub, The Station Inn, for evening meals which provided excellent local food at a reasonable price. Highly recommended and Carol will most certainly be hearing from us in the future
A beautiful spot
We received a very pleasant welcome and were fortunately able to change our room to the one with the bathroom.
We had not realised when we booked that our room would not be en-suite and that the bathroom was downstairs. However the new room was double the cost of the first one. It was very luxurious with an amazing sunken bath. The breakfast was nice. Nothing was too much for the land lady.

Carol, the owner, was extremely attentive and very concerned that our stay would be enjoyable.
