9 adults, 1 x toddler and 2 x dogs

All of the family had a great time, house is much larger than shown in the photographs, kitchen clean with everything you need. We were very lucky with the weather so visited Moffatt a quaint local town, Powfoot with its wonderful beach and enjoyed the games room each evening. Would love to return.

Beautiful big house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Waterbeck House. Plenty of space for our group of 5 adults and 4 children.

We enjoyed looking at the stars in the hot tub and had a lovely day out in nearby Moffat.

We would recommend visiting The Townhead Hotel in Lockerbie for an amazing meal.

Brilliant weekend with family and friends, would love to return one day.

Beautiful big house

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay here with 8 adults, 3 children and 3 dogs. Plenty of space for us all and the hot tub was a welcome addition. Only thing I would say and it's not a complaint, just an observation would be that the dining table sat 12 people as we struggled to fit everyone around for a family meal.

Thanks for a lovely stay

This is an amazing property with loads of character. The rooms are huge and furnished in line with the property’s style. Hot tub amazing - we had brilliant star gazing on a crisp clear evening. Great village location with plenty of things to do and see locally. Friendly and helpful owner. Highly recommend this property.
