A medium sized room which has its own private bathroom directly across the hallway.  The private bathroom has facilities for those less mobile.

This room can be set as a King size double or as a Twin.

I recommend you purchase holiday insurance.

Please familiarise yourself with the Ts and Cs.



This is the smallest bedroom located at the back of the house.  It has a gorgeous view over the town and river.

This room is a King size double and has its own en-suite shower room (no bath).

I recommend you purchase holiday insurance.

Please familiarise yourself with the Ts and Cs.



Please view and read carefully the Terms and Conditions of booking.  The act of selecting dates and a room IS 'confirmation' of a booking and becomes the subject of any Cancellation or No Show conditions and means you agree to all of the Ts and Cs.  This includes when I manually book the date(s) and room(s) on your behalf and when you book via an Online Booking Agent.  Not reading Ts and Cs does not mean they do not apply.  




    Guest Lounge

The Guest Lounge is found at the back of the house where there is a large picture window to show-off the stunning view of the River Dee and the town.

To enhance the experience and your comfort, both ends of the leather sofa recline.

Also available is a guest fridge.  Here you will find complimentary bottled water and the milk for your room tea tray.  It is also Ok to store anything you need here as well.


     Guest Sunroom

In addition to the Guest Lounge, there is also a sun room for your use.  There is seating for up to 4 people.

Here there is almost a panoramic view of the river and town.  A perfect place to chill out.




The area of Dumfries and Galloway is a less travelled gem of Scotland and the UK but there is an abundance of walks, cycle trails and local activities, with a multitude of events, for you to discover and enjoy.  Close by are beautiful beaches and woods to take a stroll in quiet reflection.

The perfect location of this B&B ensures you can enjoy peace and tranquillity in a relaxing atmosphere whilst still only being a short walk into the delightful town of Kirkcudbright (pronounced kur-coo-bree) and in a prime position to explore Dumfries and Galloway.

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to my home, Barrhill Woods Bed and Breakfast.  My B&B enjoys an elevated position above this gorgeous harbour town just below Barrhill Woods.  The location means you can enjoy stunning views of the River Dee and the town from the guest lounge or the guest sun room.

The bright blue bungalow affords elegant comfort in recently renovated bedrooms, with a choice of either en-suite bathrooms or one with a private bathroom which is set up with facilities for those who have mobility impairments.

My name is Dee and I live in this stunning corner of Scotland with my two dogs and cat (who have limited access to the guest areas).

The wildlife in the area is varied, so it pays to stop and listen, you never know what you may see.  In Barrhill Woods there is a wildlife hide, free to visit, with many species to observe, if you are lucky you may see the cute red squirrels. 

The town has an abundance of independent local shops and many galleries to peruse, I would highly recommend a wander around.

You are also welcome to just sit in the guest lounge or sunroom to rest your weary body and mind and recharge your batteries.

If you are the creative type, it could very well be a place to work on your next project, whatever that may be.

If adventure and exploring is what you enjoy there are many, many places to find.

I look forward to welcoming you.
