We have stayed at Rosemount a number of times and always enjoyed the experience. Kippford is a beautiful peaceful location with many interesting places to visit nearby. Lovely walking and cycling country too. Vanessa and Don are welcoming generous hosts always ready to offer help and take time for a friendly chat. Usually we book the annexe but this time...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a glowing review of Rosemounts facilities. And yes, what wonderful late summer/early autumn weather we have been blessed with this year to enjoy the outdoors and wildlife of Kippford and the surrounding area. We look forward to seeing you both next year when hopefully we will be able to...

Situated on the front, with excellent views, this is a very comfortable and good quality accommodation. The hosts are friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast is enjoyably ample and to a high standard. There is also a lovely conservatory, where you can drink your own wine and watch the tide come and go.

Thank you for your review. We hope you had a great time at Comlongon Castle & that the area has whetted your appetite to return for the beauty, peace & quiet that it offers - as well as the boat renovations! Take care and we hope to see you again in the near future! Vanessa & Don

Our visit was in early September, the summer hols were over, Kippford was relaxed and laid back. Rosemount is right on the river front with excellent views of the ever changing tidal estuary with moored yachts. Our twin bedded en suite, which shared the same view, was immaculately clean with plenty of fluffy towels and good bathroom accessories. The room...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review of both our facilities, and the beauty of Kippford (and not forgetting the free entertainment by the wee little red squirrels, who are always a delight to watch!!) Take care, and we hope to see you again, Vanessa & Don

This is not our first visit and will certainly not be our last; a beautiful guesthouse, in a beautiful location- Vanessa and Don are extremely welcoming and helpful. Local pubs The Anchor and The Mariner are a must! Would highly recommend Rosemount Guesthouse to anyone!

Kippford sells itself with its magnificent panoramic view across the harbour front and Solway Firth. Therefore, it would be very easy for the Rosemount to rest on its laurels and provide a run of the mill experience. Not a bit of it.
