Your B&B Hosts
Your hosts here are Michael and Jennifer Wilson, who bought the farmstead in 2004 and lived on it for two years in a caravan - for six months with no electricity. They have left such privations far behind: Jennifer is a fantastic cook and locally-reared beef and lamb often appear on their dinner menus. Breakfasts are lavish and guests here rave about the five-star service that comes with a personal touch.
Just over the border and the (in)famous Gretna Green, West Barmoffity Farm is perfectly placed to explore a beautiful part of Scotland. Dumfries and Galloway has 200 miles of coastline, with great beaches, and there are castles at Threave, Caerlaverock and Drumlanrig. There's art at the McGill Duncan Gallery in Castle Douglas and Kircudbright is forging a reputation as an artist's town. There are walks from your door, with the farm's own pond attracting mallard, teal, canada geese, grey lag geese, oyster catchers, lapwings and mute swans.
