The Auld Kirk - Luxury Bed & Breakfast - Dumfries

About Us

Kirkbean’s distinctive church dates from 1776 and was the oldest church in the combined parish of Colvend, Southwick and Kirkbean until it closed it’s doors, becoming a private house in November 2010. The property is now in private ownership and has been tastefully refurbished to a high standard.

Our vision is to showcase the amazing tourism experiences within the region of Dumfries and Galloway and provide a luxury and unique environment to unwind, relax and recharge after an exciting day exploring.

The current owner had a vision to set up and operate a luxury bed and breakfast and welcome guests to Dumfries and Galloway, a region of Scotland which has so much to offer all visitors.

A lot of time and energy has been invested by Vanessa to create a luxury accommodation experience and the journey begins in April 2022.

Vanessa moved to The Auld Kirk from Perthshire, believing the property would provide the perfect setting for a memorable and immersive experience, whilst promoting healthy wellbeing. Vanessa is a keen cyclist and would be happy to explore or assist in planning and advising on local routes – a guided ride could be arranged if requested.

Also resident at The Auld Kirk is our ‘wee’ jackadoodle.
