Parents 90th Birthday celebration
Fantastic location, great variety of public rooms and bedrooms. Quality of furniture and furnishings first class. Beds comfortable. Paino excellent, we had a professional pianist for part of the evening. Except the dining room where the table of of poor quality not suited to the numbers and the chairs were cheap, perhaps a covering would have improved the look. Would recommend to owner that if they were to spend some money in their dining room it would improve the overall ambiance considerably. And buy some salt and pepper pots, looks like the ones on display were borrowed form the local chippy.
65th Birthday Celebration
House is stunning as are the rooms. Tranquil location in a lovely part of the country beside Moffat Water and within easy reach of the town. Butler and chef enhanced our weekend beyond all expectations. Highly recommended.
Fantastic house, relaxing and spacious
We had a wonderful short stay at Dumcrief House to celebrate a family birthday. 13 guests ranging in age from 7 to 76. The house is absolutely beautiful in a tranquil spot just outside Moffat. Kitted out with everything you could possibly need including a snooker table, table football, piano and plenty of DVDs. Wood burners gave a real cosy feel. We are already trying to find time for a repeat visit. Definitely recommend this house.
Stunning residence with beautiful features
We loved our stay in Dumcrieff House. It is a perfect place for a large group of family and friends to be together with plenty of space for all. The rooms are large and the beds / bedding are top quality which always makes for a good stay. Everything was immaculately clean and well thought out. Thank you.
Superb house with lots of character and space for different activities. Suited our group perfectly!
Overall very impressed with the property and surrounding area. Philip was extremely helpful. The stock of kitchen utensils was superb and catered for our large group.
A beautiful period home which was grand and comfortable for our family celebrations
From the early planning to the actual weekend, Philip took so much care of us to ensure we had a family celebration to remember for my parents' diamond anniversary.
The house was perfect and furnished with amazing antiques while retaining a comfortable home feeling. Every room was well equipped though we brought many of our own kitchen equipment with us.
We stayed just after Storm Ali had passed through which downed trees, temporarily blocking the drive before we arrived and bringing down the phone lines meaning no wifi until Sunday afternoon. But Philip dealt with clearing access and kept us posted about the internet and we enjoyed having no distractions.
We booked a butler for one day and he was fantastic. Duncan quietly kept everything running smoothly and having someone to deal with washing dishes and glasses was well worth it so we could relax after meals. There was plenty storage in the kitchen and pantry, necessary as we chose to bring everything for all meals and drinks with us for the long weekend. There is a small co-op and a range of individual shops in Moffat or a 30 min drive to Dumfries where you can find a range of larger supermarkets and specialist food shops to choose from.
We enjoyed walks around the grounds and along the Southern Upland Way which passes near the estate and watched deer on the front lawn in the evening. Due to the earlier weather we couldn't play croquet and the fallen trees stopped games on the lower lawn but the billiards, table football and air hockey provided plenty of entertainment in the evenings after dinner. There are plenty TVs around the house with Sky but we never switched them on.
The location is ideal, close to the motorway but far enough not to hear or see traffic. This house is made for family celebrations or get-togethers and we will certainly consider staying here again.
