3 Gold Stars for a New Year
There have been quite a lot of changes here at Blackaddie over the last few months, firstly we have recently been awarded 3 GOLD stars from the AA which we are really pleased about. Towards the end of last year we completely refurbished a room, well 2 actually, we knocked 2 rooms into one making, what we think, is our best room yet. Looking out over the garden and river beyond, Pheasant is now a really large bright room with a massive double bed, I would call it a super king but it is bigger than that at 2 meters wide. The room also boasts a superb bathroom, with under floor heating, bath and separate walk-in monsoon shower. To top it all off it also has a magnificent view up the river from the bathroom.
We didn’t stop there though, we continued the refurbishment with Mallard. With a magnificent view up the river Mallard has always been a popular room but it’s bathroom has always let it down. Not now though, totally refurbished the view is still the same but now Mallard is a beautiful light and airy room with a much improved bathroom with a magnificent walk in monsoon shower.
Throughout the winter we also decorated our two 2 bedroom self catering cottages so they are bright and fresh ready for the new season.

There’s lots to see and do in the area such as Dumfries House (which is stunning, see below), the Dark Skies Park, Lead Mining Museum, Drumlanrig Castle and Gardens, Walking, Fishing of course and lots more besides. We now have a brand new tourist attraction on our doorstep. Crawick Multiversehttp://www.crawickmultiverse.co.uk/Carwick Multiverse is a major land restoration and art project utilising landscape art to transform a former opencast coal mine into an outdoor space that can be enjoyed by future generations.Privately funded by the Duke of Buccleuch and designed by globally-renowned landscape artist Charles Jencks, Crawick Multiverse is a stunning representation of exciting discoveries and theories of the universe.
This world-class landscape art design links the themes of space, astronomy and cosmology, creating a truly inspiring landmark that will appeal to everyone from art enthusiasts and scientists to the wider community. It really is worthy of a visit and is open daily and is less than 2 miles away from Blackaddie.
Dumfries house is well worth a visit, even if you’ve been there before it is defiantly worth going again as it is constantly improving and evolving with new things to see every time you go and who knows you may even see Prince Charles there. He does visit a lot, indeed when Jane visited it last year she bumped into him. Well not literally but almost as he was only a few feet away.
Dumfries House is really magnificent and well worth a visit
Then of course there is the British Open which this year is being held at Royal Troon just over an hours drive from Blackaddie. Treat yourself to a day or two at the golf while staying in a fantastic room and dining on stunning food each night!
We very much look forward to welcoming you to Blackaddie, we have already taken a number of bookings for Hogmanay 2016/17 so do not have that many spaces left, if you are thinking of coming this year you will need to call sooner rather than later.
