Proud winner of the Scottish Thistle Award West Region Most Hospitable B&B award 2017/8 – Hillcrest is an imposing stone built Victorian villa with outstanding views, set on the southerly edge of Scotland’s Booktown. All 6 of our rooms are ensuite rooms – offering a mix of double, twin and single accommodation. All rooms are bright, large, airy and are individually decorated to make the most of the original features of our 140 year old home, yet each offers the standard and quality today’s traveller expects including ensuite facilities, TV, FairTrade Tea & Coffee trays, Digital Radio/Alarm, hairdryers and lovely organic bathroom essentials from Pure Lakes.  All bar one room offer wonderful views out across farmland to the sea. One room – Lorne – is on the ground floor.

We also have a lovely guest lounge with a cozy stove for those chilly evenings, together with a selection of books, music and TV/DVD – all with view out over the garden, and a licensed dining room where breakfast and evening meals are served.

We offer 4 star B&B accommodation, with set evening meals focusing on fresh, local, seasonal produce which have won us numerous Awards over the years.

The surrounding area has plenty to offer too!  The Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park, access to 7 Stanesworld class mountain biking at Kirroughtree, Glentrool, Ae, Dalbeattie, and Mabie. There’s also Wigtown Bay Local Nature reserve, RSPB Baldoon, forests, beaches, hills, gardens, castles, outdoor activity centres, chocolate making, and plenty of bookshops!
