My second stay at Barr Farmhouse whilst visiting friends in the area. It felt like returning home thanks to Roy's excellent hospitality. So very relaxing and once again made to feel very welcome with tea and cakes on arrival. Beautiful location and interior, plus breakfast which is out of this world. Looking forward to returning soon.

We stayed for one night at Barr Farmhouse on our way home from holiday further south. Roy immediately made us feel welcome, relaxed and well fed on our arrival with an indulgent afternoon tea! Unfortunately we didn't meet Orla as she was on holiday at the time, but we did get to sample her delicious seed bread, which was part of our very generous breakfast. I had the porridge with whisky - a new experience for me, which I wouldn't mind repeating. In conclusion I would say that Barr Farmhouse provided everything we needed and more in terms of comfort, cleanliness and a warm welcome. Thank you Roy and Orla.

A friendly and comfortable bed and breakfast. Roy is a great host and took time to engage with us. Nothing was too much trouble and the accomodation and breakfast was good value. We highly recommend Barr Farmhouse as an ideal b&b

Room Tip: Very flexible room choice

We were lucky enough to stay with Roy and Orla for 5 days in May, and the only bad thing was having to leave! They were so welcoming from the moment we arrived with tea and cakes (don't miss the shortbread), breakfasts were delicious and relaxing with time to chat. Our room was immaculate, bathroom nearby, and lots of treats - I'm not going to spoil the surprises! Wifi worked perfectly.They have two lovely friendly dogs but you'd scarcely be aware of them. There's plenty to explore in the area and good eateries in Dumfries on which Roy and Orla will gladly help with advice. They gave us such a lovely relaxing break and we can't wait to return.

Roy and Orla made us really welcome. Breakfast is excellent, fruit salad and cooked breakfast + Orla's special bread and loads of other options to choose from. The first challenge on arrival is the tea (or coffee) and cake all yummy.
Bed was really comfy and there is plenty of room in the downstairs lounge to relax.
One thing to note, which did not bother us, is that the bathroom is private but not en suite.
Both Roy and Orla are very informative on local attractions and there is also a folder provided giving information and routes to the attractions and local eateries.
A lovely place to visit.
