Summer 2021 update – We are open for bookings!

Knockquhassen Reservoir from the Southern Upland Way

We are finally re-opening the B&B to guests! From July 1st 2021 bookings can be made for our downstairs ensuite twin room.

This room (pictured below) is very spacious which allows room for a table, enabling breakfast to be served in your room. The full range of cooked breakfast choices is available as well as cereals, fruit, home made sourdough toast and home made preserves. Special diets can be catered for such as gluten or lactose-free; you will be asked about your preferences on booking.

As well as very comfy twin beds, there is a flat screen TV and lovely new shower in the ensuite bathroom.

Our upstairs double room remains closed at present, but can be booked for a party of 3/4 people wishing to book both rooms. Bookings can be made by phone or email. We are not taking online bookings at present. Please note that there is a minimum of 2 nights stay. Don’t forget dogs are welcome free of charge!

Post Lockdown Update

After much thought we have decided to open just one of our two rooms from July 15th 2020. This will be kept under review as the Covid 19 situation develops. I know many people are desperate for a holiday and many of your love to bring your dogs along too! I am currently updating the website with details of changes to our booking process to ensure your stay is as safe as can be for everyone. Please check back again for further information over the next couple of weeks.

The ground floor room is a large airy room with twin beds, flat screen TV and an easy chair. The ensuite has had the benefit of a lovely new shower during lockdown (pics to follow). In addition there is now a table and chairs in the room as breakfast will be served in your room. During lockdown I have been perfecting my bread making, so home-made sourdough bread will be on the menu (pictured)! The normal menu of cooked and continental breakfast options is available but you will be asked to select your choices in advance as we are not able to offer a buffet at the moment. Of course if we have a return to the gorgeous weather we had in spring, then our new patio in the garden is available for guests to use for breakfast or any other time.

Please note, I have introduced a minimum 2 nights stay for the rest of 2020. This is necessary to allow for additional cleaning and disinfecting between guests and the recommendation to have a gap of 72 hrs between guests. There is also a new option of a Room-Only booking, which does not include breakfast. I hope this will encourage people to spend a little more time in this beautiful part of Scotland, even if you are only passing through!

Our sunroom is cosy and warm so you can enjoy the views over your breakfast whatever the weather outside! The wildlife is still here and if you’re lucky you may see roe deer or even a hen harrier!

Come and stay at Knockquhassen Farm B&B this summer!

Why choose Knockquhassen Farm B&B for your short break or overnight stay this year?


Spectacular scenery – the views from the house and garden are stunning at any time of year, but even more so right now, with the beautiful sunny weather we’ve been having.





Great location as a base for exploring the area  – spring has well and truly sprung, bluebells are everywhere. Why not visit one of the many gardens nearby, take a walk by the sea on a rugged coast path or wide empty beach or visit the picturesque harbour at Portpatrick?






Lots to see and do – whatever your thing, there is sure to be something for you in Wigtownshire from walking to arts to oysters. See our What to See & Do near Stranraer page for details of forthcoming local events.
