Elizabeth Ann Hughes invites you to come and relax in the atmosphere of a private house party at the much loved Scaurbridge House, Penpont, Thornhill.
Dumfries and Galloway is hailed as 'Scotland's Best Kept Secret' and Scaurbridge House, just outside the village of Penpont, Thornhill, is exactly that.
Attention to detail and the warmest of welcomes makes staying with Elizabeth Ann Hughes a delightful experience. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated and the garden is a haven of peace and calm. Sit at the table beside the little fish pond watching the interesting birds which visit. If you are very quiet, and very lucky, you may see one of the rare red squirrels which scuttle along the dry stone walls on their way to collect cones from the old Scots Pine.
Drumlanrig Castle is nearby, go for a lovely walk in any direction and you may come across a sculpture by the world famous artist Andy Goldsworthy who lives in the area. Wander through Thornhill's tree lined avenues and enjoy bijou shopping or fish on the Nith, 2 miles away. Golf, shooting, walking and cycling can be arranged nearby. The area attracts artists and craftspersons who will be delighted to welcome you to their studios.
Back at Scaurbridge House, start your day with a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, local bacon, sausages, black pudding or perhaps some locally smoked salmon with creamy scrambled eggs. Finish with Galloway oatcakes, local honey, fresh, hot, home made scones, and home made jams.d home made jams.
Whatever you decide, Elizabeth Ann will be delighted to tailor your stay to your needs and wishes to make the experience an unforgettable one!
