Stayed in the house for a family gathering, absolutely wonderful weekend. Hosts were very helpful in showing us where everything was and how everything worked. House has all amenities required and beautiful bathrooms. Stunning surroundings. Would definitely recommend it.

Family Party for a 50th

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely fabulous weekend was had with 3 generations of the family all equally wowed by the surroundings. The property managed to be both grand in size but cosy in feel. The kitchen was well equipped with sufficient fridge space to house the food mountain we brought with us. The level of cleanliness was exceptional throughout and the towels and linen were of a high standard. The pictures don't really do the space justice, each bedroom is huge and offered amazing views over the trees in their autumnal glory. The bench outside was used for afternoon tea with the noise of the river in the background adding to the calming nature of the place. The owner Philip was very helpful with the pre-party arrangements putting us in touch with local kennels, chefs and cleaners. All in all a brilliant weekend and a fabulous property for a party.

A luxurious haven

  • 5 of 5

I booked Dumcrieff for a 50th bday celebrations. The booking process (through Owners direct site )was easy -but for me it was the communications with Philip who answered all my queries and doubts in detail through email or phone that was the highlight. We were a mix of adults, teenagers and a couple of toddlers and spent a weekend there

Full compliments to Philip and Dematra who make the house what it is now

The house is awe inspiring and has a pleasing mix of the antique and the modern-such that you feel at home and not out of place. The beds and bedrooms are very spacious luxurious and very comfortable-the bathrooms and kitchen have all the mod cons and are fully kitted out for use( 2 refrigerators , 2 dishwashers an Aga that is on always) . The rooms remain warm and the shower water pressure is strong . Most bathrooms have dual access -internally from the bedrooms and from the corridor The kids had no qualms about the wifi and phone coverage was fine in the ground floor.-but the games and billiards rooms and the outdoor space kept them away from their gizmos

The grounds and surroundings are a delight to explore We were there in the 1st weekend of October and were expecting wet cold conditions -and instead were awarded the most glorious sunshine with temp of 16 degrees - long walk followed by a picnic lunch on the lawns. Moffat is a short drive away for any necessities

I prearranged with Philip and got an external caterer for the bday dinner

I had also arranged a housekeeper's services through Philip -unfortunately she became indisposed but then Dematra stepped in

A beautiful place. We left with fantastic memories of Dumcrieff and hope that we can return sometime
