A Great Family Weekend

By chemp60 on 28-Mar-2018

We had a great family get together to celebrate a 50th birthday. The venue was fantastic accommodating us brilliantly in the 7 huge double and 2 twin rooms. We also booked the personal chef who was a great character and the food was outstanding. We would thoroughly recommend Dumcrieff House to anyone looking for wonderful accommodation and surroundings.

Impressive Property & Perfect For A Party

By Gillian H on 20-Feb-2018

We stayed at Dumcrieff for my husband’s 40th Birthday celebrations. The house was absolutely lovely and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a celebratory getaway with family & friends. It had everything we could need and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this impressive home. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Philip for all your help with the booking and welcome gifts!

Family Party For A 50th

By Mike S on 20-Feb-2018

An absolutely fabulous weekend was had with 3 generations of the family all equally wowed by the surroundings. The property managed to be both grand in size but cosy in feel. The kitchen was well equipped with sufficient fridge space to house the food mountain we brought with us. The level of cleanliness was exceptional throughout and the towels and linen were of a high standard. The pictures don't really do the space justice, each bedroom is huge and offered amazing views over the trees in their autumnal glory. The bench outside was used for afternoon tea with the noise of the river in the background adding to the calming nature of the place. The owner Philip was very helpful with the pre-party arrangements putting us in touch with local kennels, chefs and cleaners. All in all a brilliant weekend and a fabulous property for a party.

Magical Find

By Claire S on 13-Feb-2018

Having booked Dumcrieff House for my sisters hen do, this place and Philip surpassed all expectations ! Philip was excellent at communicating throughout my booking and on arrival, making us feel welcome and explaining everything thoroughly. Now onto the house, words cannot describe how impressive it is! All our guests could not believe the size and quality of all the rooms in the house. We also booked the outdoor activities and the chef, both services I would highly recommend. Overall this place is a total one off, and I can’t wait to go back again in the future!

Perfect Venue For Family Christmas

By Marsmum on 01-Jan-2018

Perfect location for a family get together over Christmas. The house is beautiful with large rooms, all furnished to a high standard. The house combines luxury with the welcoming feel of a family home. We all loved our stay, plenty of room for everyone and loads for all generations to do. Gorgeous walks from the door, close to spectacular scenic hikes, lovely garden, lots of games, a DVD library, snooker table..... Philip was really helpful and responsive. Fabulous week in this wonderful house, thoroughly recommend.

School Reunion

By Matthias G on 23-Oct-2017

We were a large group of school friends, staying at Dumcrieff House for our annual reunion. We had an excellent time at the House. It is impressive in stature, with a very high standard of internal furnishing. Philip, the owner, was always very quick to reply to my messages. Couldn't have asked for more.

Stunning Property And Great Hospitality

By Matthew J on 07-Sep-2017

From start to finish we had a fantastic 4 day stay at Dumcrieff House. Philip was an incredible host, supporting us with our holiday planning and making introductions to local experts to help us with various activities we were looking for over the weekend, from fly fishing lessons on the Annan to a whisky tasting at the property. We were delayed on arrival due to traffic so Philip and his wife went to the property to let in our grocery deliveries and packed everything away for us so all was in order when we arrived - such incredible service and warm hospitality! We had 17 staying but there is so much room you always had your own space. The facilities are fantastic and we had everything we needed. What better way to spend a Summer evening in Scotland than barbecuing local angus steaks outside the snooker room on the Dumcrieff House terrace, surrounded by woods and pasture with the River Annan running by. Many thanks again Philip for your hospitality, I can't recommend Dumcrieff House enough.

What A Cracker!!

By Jan on 09-Jul-2017

What a fantastic venue for our friend Gill's Hen Weekend. Philip and Demetra were there to meet us and were generous and gracious. The house itself is fabulous with beautiful bedrooms and a very well appointed kitchen. We wanted for nothing. We were very lucky with the weather too and made the most of the grounds for our 'games' on Saturday. I would highly recommend Dumcrieff Mansion to all.

Opulence Galore

By Gill W on 12-Jun-2017

This venue is just amazing. I only wish I could give it 10 stars. It is huge, the rooms are large and well decorated and the bathrooms are fully modernised and luxurious. Everything you need is there and in our case that included the weather which meant we could enjoy the beautiful outside spaces. I would highly recommend.

70th Birthday Family Celebrations

By Barry And Sue on 18-Apr-2017

This is just the most wonderful House and Location for a Family and Friends celebration or get together. My wife's 70th Birthday was celebrated in style. Fourposter Beds, lavish Bathroom, spacious Lounges with wood burning stoves, even a mini Grand Piano.
The Dining room, seating 18 and the Snooker room were well used as was the smaller games room, with Table Football and Air hockey, by the children small and large.
I must mention Ian and Ester Murray, the Butler and Chef, who were superb and made the whole Easter long weekend go without a hitch. Ester must write a Cookery Book!
The super grounds, alongside the River make an ideal landing site for a Helicopter, trips in which we all enjoyed. Lifetime Memories for all the young children especially.
Thank you again Philip for allowing your super Home to be used by us all.
Barry and Sue.

Perfect Stay For 18 Adults

By D T on 05-Mar-2017

We loved Dumcrieff house and from the moment we walked through the door with Philip and his wife we knew we would have a great weekend. The information they shared about the house and it's amenities was great! The house is huge and all 18 of us felt so relaxed and comfortable during our weekend stay with lots of space for everyone to be together and also space to do your own thing. The house had everything we needed and we made great use of all the areas relaxing in the main room and sitting room, having a good chat in the busy kitchen, enjoying afternoon tea and an Italian meal in the dining room and playing snooker, pool and air hokey in the games rooms. The bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely and beds were so comfortable. We had a lovely walk in the grounds. We loved our stay for our all girl's 40th weekend celebration and hope to return again!

We have just spent THE MOST enjoyable, memorable and luxurious weekend of our lives. We booked Dumcrieff House to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday with our close friends and family - our expectations of the weekend were surpassed in every way possible. Philip and Ian helped with planning the weekend in great detail and helped me to make this such a wonderful experience for my wife. The house, food, rooms, welcome, surroundings, planning and the warmth and support of Ian and his wife - nothing could have been better or improved, everything was just perfect. Thank you also to everyone who came, what a wonderful weekend and amazing memories to cherish. No hesitation in rating this wonderful house and our stay as excellent.

A Luxurious Haven

By ANITA K on 16-Oct-2016

I booked Dumcrieff for a 50th bday celebrations. The booking process (through Owners direct site )was easy -but for me it was the communications with Philip who answered all my queries and doubts in detail through email or phone that was the highlight. We were a mix of adults, teenagers and a couple of toddlers and spent a weekend there

Full compliments to Philip and Dematra who make the house what it is now

The house is awe inspiring and has a pleasing mix of the antique and the modern-such that you feel at home and not out of place. The beds and bedrooms are very spacious luxurious and very comfortable-the bathrooms and kitchen have all the mod cons and are fully kitted out for use( 2 refrigerators , 2 dishwashers an Aga that is on always) . The rooms remain warm and the shower water pressure is strong . Most bathrooms have dual access -internally from the bedrooms and from the corridor The kids had no qualms about the wifi and phone coverage was fine in the ground floor.-but the games and billiards rooms and the outdoor space kept them away from their gizmos

The grounds and surroundings are a delight to explore We were there in the 1st weekend of October and were expecting wet cold conditions -and instead were awarded the most glorious sunshine with temp of 16 degrees - long walk followed by a picnic lunch on the lawns. Moffat is a short drive away for any necessities

I prearranged with Philip and got an external caterer for the bday dinner

I had also arranged a housekeeper's services through Philip -unfortunately she became indisposed but then Dematra stepped in

A beautiful place. We left with fantastic memories of Dumcrieff and hope that we can return sometime

Perfect House For Any Big Gathering

By Lindsey H on 05-Jul-2016

I booked Dumcrieff for my friend's hen party and if you're looking for sophistication and beautiful scenery, this house could not be better.
On arrival the house was spotless and we were given a comprehensive tour by Philip and his wife. They also left us several complimentary bottles of prosecco and biscuits which we thoroughly enjoyed!
The communal areas such as the drawing room and dining room have stunning views and are the perfect setting for social gatherings. The grounds of the house are incredible if you enjoy walks and nature.
In terms of location, the house is approximately a 4 minute drive from Moffat which was handy for us as we had booked Brodies for afternoon tea.
Everything in the house was luxurious from the showers and complimentary toiletries to the decor and bedding. It was so lovely to stay there and we are all enthusiastic about returning one day!
There were 14 of us staying overnight and despite this, the place still felt huge!
Another feature to mention is the bbq...we made great use of this and despite the rain, we were still able to enjoy the wonderful outdoor space. Again bbq fuel was provided so you didn't have to worry about bringing anything.
The house itself was really well kitted out with TVs in every room, DVD players, wifi, beautiful bed linen and all the kitchen essentials you could think of.
I could not recommend this place highly enough for a group gathering. Philip and his wife bend over backwards to accommodate your needs and make it very easy to contact them if you need to.
I very much look forward to a return visit.

Fabulous House In A Beautiful Location

By Cassie B on 04-Jul-2016

15 hens had a fabulous weekend at Dumcrieff House. The setting was perfect, despite the rain. Philip was on call to answer any questions should we need and was flexible with the check out arrangements. There is lots of space in the house so room to escape if you need to! The lounge is a super size and a smaller one with a television should you wish to use it. The games rooms are great too with lots of board games to choose from. I'd definitely consider going back for another weekend. Thank you Philip!
