Ernespie House Hotel

About us

In April 2018 Tammy & I came up to visit the hotel in Castle Douglas after hearing about it from our home in Henley on Thames.

It would not be farfetched to say that it was love at first sight when we saw the building and the area and we decided that this was perfect time to start on the next phase of our lives together with our 1 year old son James and a very adorable (read spoilt) cocker spaniel Hamish.

About Us

We hope you feel comfortable enough to make yourselves at home and treat Ernespie House Hotel in Castle Douglas like your family home.

Bring your family & plan a party

Both Tammy & I are very proud that we have been afforded this unique privilege to look after this beautiful building in Catle Douglas with history that goes back hundreds of years. We both understand that there is lot of work that needs to be done to look after this hotel and we are committed to devoting time, passion and energy to this end. We will continue to invest in the fabric of the hotel over the coming months and years and sincerely hope that you like what we present to you for your pleasure.

In our efforts to restore this building we are supported by our brother in law Paul who you will see walking around the building or driving around on his tractor (he is very possessive of his tractor). He is master of his craft and we consider him to be a magician. We are very fortunate that he has chosen to be a part of this journey with us.
