Afton Water B&B is a beautiful relaxing place to stay at the gateway to Ayrshire Scotland and only an hour to Glasgow or fourty five minutes to the west coast of Scotland. We are well placed for visits to Dumfries House which draws hundreds of visitors with its ever changing grounds and World renoun Chippendale furniture collection. Lochside House Hotel hosts many weddings, many relatives and friends of the bride and groom stay at Afton Water B&B enjoying a home away from home stay.

Afton Bed and Breakfast

Julie and Alistair Winter offer you a warm welcome to their Bed and Breakfast / Art Experience.

The detached villa is set within half an acre of its own grounds where pheasants, woodpeckers, roe deer and the occasional fox can easily be seen while you are drinking in the beautiful views.

What you can expect: The accommodation is spacious. Breakfasts are filling and we aim to use as much locally bought fresh produce as possible. Our own hens produce the large eggs for breakfast, which are also used for home baked foods should you stay for an evening meal.

Everybody is welcome to stay whether you are looking for a nights accommodation when visiting friends and family, or attending a local wedding, or working in the area on conservation projects, or bird surveys etc. We have a utility room where your pet can sleep, but we don't allow pets in guest rooms.

There are options for more involved stays at our B&B. Our unique approach is to offer painting holidays too. You will find an array of artwork on the walls in the guest lounge and breakfast room to stimulate your interest and maybe inspire you to develop your own artistic abilities. Please scroll down for further information.
