Guest book comments: 'Amazing house, bigger and better than we expected, perfect for our golfing holiday.' P Simpson London
'Brilliant location, lovely house, space for three generations and lots of things to d. We'll be back.' C Russell, Cumbria
'Fantastic holiday, great location, lovely house.' J Lister, Cheshire.
We travelled to Scotland for a family wedding. There were 10 of us altogether, with ages ranging from 65 down to 6 months!! We fitted into Lincluden with no difficulty at all. The house is just perfect to absorb such a large number. Wonderfully comfortable beds with plenty of space. The house is perfect situated for trips to all of the surrounding area and when we all returned exhausted, it was great to have a huge family room with an open fire.The younger members of the family particularly enjoyed the chickens and collecting the eggs in the morning. The owner Brian and his wife were wonderful hosts – always there if we needed assistance, but never intrusive.
In short Lincluden made for a perfect setting for a family holiday – we sincerely hope to repeat this!! The Barry Family Wiltshire

'I write you,that we had a very good vacation in your nice scottish House Lincluden. We've use your offer to collect all the eggs from chicken. We have had very nice evennings at the big table to discuss about God and the world. And the important thing of all: It was very quiet for all in the night. And for me: I like it so much to speek with you. That you gave us tipps where to go. We've seen a small part of Scottland, but it was very nice. Thank you very much for all'
