“Brilliant place to stay.”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have stayed 4 or 5 times and enjoyed visit. A friendly welcome each time, some milk for a drink after a long drive. It is becoming a regular stay for us and we are looking forward to the next time.

The view out of the lounge windows is great and such a peaceful spot to relax. It is an ideal location for whatever you want to do. A good selection of shops in nearby towns, good food, lots to do.

The Mill is well equipment, clean with space to spread out. The living area is upstairs to take advantage of the view.

“Couldn't ask for a better holiday rental!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Burnbrae Mill is a beautiful converted mill in a peaceful and picturesque location. It provides everything we could ask for in a holiday rental... and more besides. It is cleverly designed to make the most of its location, with the lounge upstairs to maximise the beautiful view. It has a well equipped kitchen and plenty of space inside which makes it ideal for a family holiday. There are many things to do nearby for people of all interests. Owners always helpful and happy to do whatever they can to make the stay memorable. We continue to go back year after year.

“Wonderful countryside retreat”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

A beautiful mill building conversion with stunning countryside views. The property exceeded our expectation with quality fittings throughout, and was larger than expected. The dining, kitchen and living areas upstairs make the most of the space and the lovely views. Thoughtful extras provided eg Xbox and Wii consoles and games. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. Ideal location for outdoor activities with lots to see and do in the Dumfries area. Car essential. We will definitely be back!

“Highly Recommend”
Reviewed 30 September 2013 for a stay in May 2012

My family and I have been to Burnbrae Mill a number of times and have rebooked again for 2014. We highly recommend this to virtually all people. A safe environment for children or quiet holiday and adults. A lovely place that's clean, fresh and modern inside. Owners are wonderful people who will go out of their way to make sure your holiday is memorable.
Highly recommend
