Lochenbreck Byre is a really beautiful place to stay. The accommodation is of an excellent standard, the rooms are spacious with good quality furnishings and all the added extras you could wish for - from a log burning fire, with plenty of wood for those cold winter evenings, luxurious towels, bedding and dressing gowns to underfloor heating, a stunning garden room and a lovely wet room. The wine, flowers and fruit that were waiting for us on our arrival were a thoughtful gesture. The owners are really most helpful - offering to shop for us before our arrival, providing us with details of all the local facilities/attractions and events as well as a secure place to store our mountain bike - along with the use of a hosepipe for cleaning!! Nothing was too much trouble but without being pushy.
The location is ideal - if you're looking for peace and quiet you'll certainly find it. But if you want activity it's not too much of a drive to any number of towns and villages. The surrounding area is great for walking/running or cycling. There are some lovely places to eat not far away and I would say that the people in the area are some of the friendliest.
This has been one of the best holidays we've had in a long while and The Lochenbrek Byre the best holiday cottage and the owners - the most friendly and helpful.

Thankyou both for such a fantastic break. We had such a great time staying at Lochenbreck - we've discovered the ideal holiday accommodation and location! You have clearly worked really hard to provide the perfect setting and I'd like to recommend it to everyone, as long as we can still find dates to return in the future!

Wendy and I had a great holiday, very relaxing and the accommodation was of a very high standard indeed - you have made a superb job of the refurbishment and decor, and we were made to feel very welcome. We look forward to visiting again in the near future.

We two ‘seniors’ have twice enjoyed the first class accommodation in the Byre and intend to be there again soon. Always warmly welcomed by Paul and Linsey. Excellent furnishings and beautiful décor in the Byre reflecting Linsey’s artistic talents. Every comfort provided with good attention to detail throughout. A great, quiet place to relax in, to wander the ‘estate’, talk to the animals or take in a spot of fishing. Very convenient too for all that is offered in the Dumfries and Galloway area.

We enjoyed a splendid visit to Lochenbreck Byre in April 2012 - the furnishings fixtures and fittings are of a very pleasing quality and the standard of finish is high - the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings are beyond reproach - a highly recommended area for all who appreciate the natural environment-Oyster Catcher a special bonus!

"Probably the best holiday cottage in Scotland" The peace and tranquility and the quality of the accommodation make Lochenbreck Byre the perfect holiday haven in the wonderful Galloway countryside.
