We stayed for one night at Barr Farmhouse on our way home from holiday further south. Roy immediately made us feel welcome, relaxed and well fed on our arrival with an indulgent afternoon tea! Unfortunately we didn't meet Orla as she was on holiday at the time, but we did get to sample her delicious seed bread, which was part...

A friendly and comfortable bed and breakfast. Roy is a great host and took time to engage with us. Nothing was too much trouble and the accomodation and breakfast was good value. We highly recommend Barr Farmhouse as an ideal b&b

We were lucky enough to stay with Roy and Orla for 5 days in May, and the only bad thing was having to leave! They were so welcoming from the moment we arrived with tea and cakes (don't miss the shortbread), breakfasts were delicious and relaxing with time to chat. Our room was immaculate, bathroom nearby, and lots of treats...

Roy and Orla made us really welcome. Breakfast is excellent, fruit salad and cooked breakfast + Orla's special bread and loads of other options to choose from. The first challenge on arrival is the tea (or coffee) and cake all yummy. Bed was really comfy and there is plenty of room in the downstairs lounge to relax. One thing to...

Thank you Roy and Orla for making our holiday better than we could have imagined. Very warm welcome (with GOOD scones), great people to talk to, nice accomodation with plenty of space in the living room, makes you feel at home right away, though so far from home. We'll definitely be back! Een echte aanrader voor wie in de streek...

Thank you for a wonderful stay; beds comfy, scones perfect, brekky fresh and the property and puppies very picturesque. The couple here were so hospitable. A great spot to stay. This B&B is a bit off the beaten track but was perfect for us

We stayed at the Barr Farmhouse for six nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Roy and Orla are two of the most hospitality host and hostess we have ever met. When we arrived, we were treated with a genuine Scottish Tea with great cakes. Throughout our six day visit, Roy and Orla spent many hours talking with us...

This was our second visit to Barr Farmhouse, we absolutely love this gem of a B&B, we did not want to leave! Roy was the perfect host, greeting us with a warm welcome and home bakes and we could have chatted into the small wee hours as he is such a charismatic and interesting person. Breakfast on both mornings was...

We stayed at the Barr Farmhouse for one night, but soon after arriving, wished it could have been for longer! The amount of times my jaw dropped and the words "oh, I LOVE that" came out my mouth... Lol. It was just the best experience and at a very affordable price! We just loved it all. The place, food, hospitality,...

This was a very last minute booking due to a family crisis and so I was delighted to find that I had chanced on such a pleasant place to stay. The Hosts, Roy and Orla were friendly and chatty without being in the least intrusive. I was advised on journey times and encouraged to enjoy the short time that I...
