The Bed and Breakfast features 6 en suite letting rooms each with their own charm and appeal with excellent furnishings and hospitality items. The sea to the south is visible from most rooms and can provide views stretching as far as Cumbria.
The business operates throughout the year and the steady trade peaks in the warmer months as more visitors are drawn to the literary events in Wigtown and the beautiful natural scenery within easy reach of the property. The range of attractions nearby ensure a diverse clientele seeking accommodation. Breakfast as well as dinner are served in the 16 cover dining room and the evening meals have proven to be very popular and highly regarded.
