Trigony House

Value offers
Originally a 19th-century shooting and fishing lodge for Closeburn Castle, Adam and Jan Moore’s ‘relaxed’ country house stands in ideal walking country, in the gentle, rolling countryside of the Nithsdale valley. It is close to, but screened from, the main road, by wooded grounds. The hotel is so pet-friendly that ‘well-behaved’ dogs receive a welcome pack. Japanese oak panelling in the hallway, an Art Deco staircase and half-landing window date from a 1930s makeover. ‘Spotless’ bedrooms are individually designed. The Garden Suite has a conservatory sitting room, and a bathroom with power shower, ‘fragrant Scottish toiletries, large towels’. Jan Moore is the ‘chatty and helpful’ front-of-house. Her husband specialises in what he describes as ‘21st-century rustic cuisine’, with the emphasis on local, organic produce, including fruit and vegetables from the walled kitchen garden. A ‘delicious’ dinner might include warm crispy duck salad, roasted red onion, orange dressing; cassoulet of local pork, flageolet beans, Gressingham duck. ‘Can’t wait to go back!’ ‘We will be there again,’ are typical readers’ comments. The Duke of Buccleuch’s Drumlanrig Castle is three miles away.
  • This hotel suits dog-owners very well as it is very relaxed about their access and is surrounded by good walking country as well as the large garden. Very good value for money, in a beautiful area. The food is excellent.

  • Our second visit to this lovely old hotel. Sublime food, wine and local beer. Dinner in the dinning room overlooking the garden, or the bar with log fires, is not to be missed. The bedrooms are comfortable, as is the lounge area. Our small terrier was made welome with doggy treats. Walks around the hotel are varied and safe. Dont forget binoculars for spotting red sqirrel and red kites.
