Are you in need of a mini-break in the rural paradise of South-west Scotland? If so, then we have just the answer to your desires…and a super special deal to make it all the more sweeter.

In anticipation of a potential second lockdown, we want offer you the chance to stay in our rather wonderful bed & breakfast for 3 nights (Fri-Sun) for the price of 2…which means a 3 night mini break will cost just £120.

Rigg House B&B is situated on the A76 in the village of Kirkconnel, right at the top of Dumfries & Galloway, close to the border of East Ayrshire. We are 45 minutes from both Dumfries and Ayr and an hour from Glasgow and can easily be reached by either car, train or bike. Read other posts on this blog to find out more about the rich wealth of history, folklore and culture which this area has to offer.

The Harris Suite

We have 4 en-suite guest rooms, all with magnificent views of the hills of Upper Nithsdale. Each room comes with a generous supply of brew making materials, along with a jar of our famous homemade flapjack. Our suites have been decorated with a huge amount of love, with each one offering a different vibe.

The Thistle Suite

We take huge pride in our business and have worked hard over the last 3 years to build up something which we are very proud of. Of course, as for everyone in pretty much every industry, the last 6 months were insanely tough; at times it did seem as if we were going to lose everything we had worked so hard for and it was very, very scary. On the up side – because I was quite convinced that we were going to lose everything mid way through lockdown, I built a pretty awesome watertight woodland den/ourdoor classroom which I’d be happy to give guests a tour of! It’s an awesome den, but I’m quite glad we didn’t actually have to move into it in the end. We are just happy that we got through it all and, despite everything that other aspects of life has thrown at us in recent times, we are simply content to say that we are still here.

The Darwin Suite

We know that Bed & Breakfasts can sometimes have a bit of a fusty old time reputation – all curfews and lace doilies and the like, but here at Rigg House we offer a super relaxed vibe and welcome all types of humans and animals. As 30-somethings with young children, we are not your average B&B proprietors, which is why Rigg House B&B isn’t your average B&B, and which is why we know that we offer something very special, as our many returning guests will tell you.

So, if you’re up for a get away in this very beautiful part of the world, simply call or email us and book your stay today. This offer is only valid until a second lockdown, or until the end of November if we manage to avoid Lockdown 2! Hope to see you here soon.
