A little about us

We are Caroline and Miles, who make up the entire B&B team.

Six years ago, we left the big city of London for the small town of Moffat to take over Queensberry House. And we haven’t looked back.

Who are we?

Caroline was a travel journalist in a previous life and spent time reviewing hotels around the globe. She’s picked up a few useful tips along the way, from the right bedside lighting to the best bed linen and breakfast cutlery.

Miles was once a builder and his maintenance skills are a useful asset to the business. He is also the king of the kitchen and has poached so many eggs he thinks he’s got it, ahem, cracked!

What’s so special about our B&B?

Queensberry House is a charming Victorian listed building dating back to the mid-19th century. It’s situated in a quiet road just a five-minute walk from the centre of Moffat.

Peace and calm prevail behind our bright red front door. There are three double rooms – all on the ground floor (no stairs!) – regularly updated and refurbished in soothing pastel colours.

Our guest lounge is a good gathering point for small groups of 4 or 6, while the drying/storage area is available for wet weather gear or bulky items.

When the inspector called…

We were thrilled to receive a four-star rating from VisitScotland’s Quality Assurance scheme and it keeps us on the right track.

What do we love about Moffat?

It is Europe’s first Dark Sky town and is at the heart of a spectacular landscape. The scenery is quite breathtaking here. Walkers come for the famous landmarks – the Devil’s Beef Tub and the Grey Mare’s Tail – just a short distance away, while the roads are a dream for motorcyclists. Birdwatching is popular – we’re hoping to catch a glimpse of a golden eagle one day. They are right here in Moffat.

We are keen walkers too.

We love Gallow Hill (above), a glorious community woodland, and one of our favourite walking spots, just minutes from Queensberry House.
