“An amazing Wedding!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A huge thank you to Juliet and Alan for being the perfect hosts. We have just had the first Wedding at The Coach House - an intimate, family ceremony in the stone horseshoe.
From our very first contact with Juliet, she has gone over and above to help us organise a beautiful Wedding. The Coach House itself is fabulous, luxury five star accommodation enjoyed by all our family. Juliet and Alan erected a superb Bedouin tent especially for us as a honeymoon suite as there were sixteen of us in total.
With Juliet's recommendation we had a fantastic photographer who captured our day beautifully with motorbike side cars and llamas - all with the help of Juliet and Alan.
The Coach House itself in it's stunning location was what we booked but we received so much more!
We cannot recommend The Coach House enough for a fantastic stay and a beautiful Wedding venue!
Many thanks again
Mr and Mrs Harris x

Thank you for the extremely kind review, Mr and Mrs Harris! We were delighted that you wanted to have your wedding here and felt very honoured to be invited to the ceremony - it was truly brilliant, and we were relieved that the sun came out for you. We enjoyed meeting your families and doing gardening and stuff with the kids and pleased that you liked the canvas honeymoon suite. You are most welcome to come back for your anniversaries.

“Fabulous weekend in a beautiful setting!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Thank you so much for a fantastic weekend, Coachhouse at Durhamhill was a beautiful setting for Jennifer and Lawrence's wedding. Owners Alan and Juliet went above and beyond with everything from taking the children to feed the llamas and chickens to the special willow arch courtesy of Juliet as well as the beautifully decorated tent for Lawrence and Jen and helping to provide some beautiful photos with the motorbike and sidecar.
The Coachhouse was stunning, beautifully clean with outstanding views and we had a very memorable weekend.
Plenty to do in the area from the cocoa bean factory to cream o galloway.

Thank you again - The Kerr Family

Thank you so much for the kind comments. We were over the moon when Jen said she wanted to get married at Durhamhill, and pleased to know that Lawrence liked it too when he eventually saw it! We were also delighted to be invited to the ceremony - it was fantastic and truly unique. You are all most welcome to come back soon, with the imminent new batch of children - I hope they are as adventurous, brave with animals (from slugs to llamas) and keen on gardening as the current bunch.

“Perfect place for entertaining, relaxing, and escaping the day job!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Well designed, great use of interior space, tastefully decorated, all mod cons, and log burners - very comfortable, well equipped. We were a group of 9 and we had plenty of space to hang out and relax in. Juliet and Alan were perfect hosts - discreet, friendly and accommodating to our needs. We loved feeding the llamas - what a treat it was to take Lottie for a walk! - and the hens too. There's plenty to do on a rainy day (excellent DVD collection, Games room, mini cinema) but we had such good weather for all 4 days of our visit that we were out and about. Threave Castle is a great visit, and we enjoyed a very nice pub lunch at the Crown Hotel in Castle Douglas. The cafe by Carsluith Castle serves excellent smoked sausage and salmon. Cardoness Castle is also worth a visit as is nearby Gatehouse of Fleet. However, at the end of a day exploring it was lovely to return to Durhamhill to cook and eat and chill out - there's the option to have a BBQ and dine outside as there's plenty of garden furniture, thankfully insect free! Some of us had a go on Alan's sidecar and thoroughly enjoyed it. Durhamhill proved to be the perfect Easter Break location for my extended family who'd travelled from London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow - we hope to make a return visit soon!
