Very warm welcome from the host, inside looks like it's from 19th century but only built in 1988, stayed in there twin room was very comfortable with ability to make a hot drink if required, food was excellent and we'll presented. Reason only 4 stars because you have to share a bathroom, but overall excellent recommend it to anyone.

We were made very welcome, everything was just as advertised. We would recommend this Bed & Breakfast very highly. We had a lovely bike ride around the area, lots of ancient architecture. Very friendly hosts and local people.

Stayed here for four nights. The room was very nice with the use of the lounge which had a great view of the bay, with the Mull of Galloway directly opposite. Breakfast was top quality, with the cooked items all locally sourced which adds to the holiday experience. Tim and Hilary were excellent hosts, really friendly and helpful. It was...

We booked a three day stop over for a family wedding. It was a good choice. Tim & Hilary have a professional product geared to their guests' needs. It is homely, comfortable and nicely appointed, from the home made shortbread on the room tray to beautiful breakfasts cooked to order by Tim. Can recommend this B&B with sea views to...

Very friendly hosts, absolutely excellent breakfast, the twin room was nice and clean, but without bathroom, bathroom was only on the same floor. There were no wishes left, when you finished breakfast

The facilities were excellent, a little "traditional" for my taste but I wouldn't let this detract from an excellent stay. We stayed here for one night at the end of our holiday where we had stayed in another B&B and Hawthorn house made me appreciate just how much the small things make a difference. Homemade shortbread in the room, fresh...

We drove for 6 1/2 hours to reach this B&B and it was worth it just for the view alone. We were warmly welcomed by Tim who showed us to our room which had the same wonderful view of the sea. On the tea tray there was a little box of home made shortbread - a lovely touch. Tim had...

A year since we stayed here. Took a last-minute booking, delighted to get 'our' room. What can we say that we haven't noted before ? Hosts who go out of the way to ensure a stay has everything - and breakfasts which remain our standard measure for "the best". Interesting conversations with other visitors from all over.
