Craigadam is an elegant country house within a working farm. Antiques, log fires and luxury bedrooms are part of its relaxed atmosphere. Meals are enjoyed in our oak-panelled dining room, where all guests eat together around our magnificent oak table in a 'house-party' atmosphere. A tastefully-converted 18th-century farm steading now comprises of four luxury en-suite bedrooms, with French windows opening out onto an attractive courtyard. There is also a large three-bedroom cottage, which can be let to the self-catering holidaymaker. The spacious bedrooms are exquisitely decorated, each to a different theme. The bedrooms in the house are traditional, with antique furnishings.
The House Bedrooms :
These en-suite bedrooms are individually decorated to a theme. - Chinese, Indian, Victorian and Scottish Traditional.
The delicacy and sensitivity of Chinese art belies a culture as famous for fighting as for its cuisine and administrative skills. We hope that the most world-weary will find the calm of the Buddha and forget city stresses in the near-religious veneration of the hills.
This attractive room has its own Eastern motif and mascot in the form of its elephant. Furnishings continue this Indian theme, with a luxurious corner bath. The services are all modern, so one can watch television and sip Indian tea.
Thoughts of Queen Victoria come to mind in the Victorian suite when one rests on the grandfather and grandmother brass beds. After a hard day out on the moor or in the river, this ambience reminds one of the comfort of the small cottage where Victoria and Albert relaxed away from Court and the splendours of Balmoral. May you, like Albert, enjoy the pleasure of a dram.
Galloway has seen the comings and goings of many mighty Scottish Kings and Queens, from Robert the Bruce to Mary Queen of Scots, who last slept in Galloway before sailing to England. The tartan motif recalls the Scottish Baronial period, when Scotland rediscovered its past. We hope that you will enjoy the ambience whilst the walls guard you from the cares of the world. Good food and drink load the dinner table nearby.
There is a self-catering cottage with three twin bedrooms, all en-suite, individually decorated to a theme - African, Florentine, and Scottish. The cottage has a comfortable sitting/dining room with French windows and a lovely view of the orchard. The luxury fitted kitchen has all-modern appliances. Visitors can choose to come for a meal or make use of other facilities, or cater for themselves in one of the most pleasant homes-from-home in Dumfries and Galloway.
The Cottage offers excellent value at £ 500 per week and is available any week of the year.

The Italian Renaissance produced many great painters and artists, none so many as in Florence. Art and sculpture are close at hand to Craigadam, the one in Kirkcudbright, the other close by in the hills. Review your discoveries or try your own hand, and return to the banquets and comfort of Craigadam.
