History of the hotel
Blackaddie is derived from words meaning black water. The River Nith which runs alongside Blackaddie is most likely the origin for the name.The house was built as the rectory to St Brides church and dates back to the beginning of the 16th century. It has evolved over the years into the charming country house that it is today. Set in two acres of gardens, the house offers magnificent views over the River Nith and the breathtaking Lowther and Queensbury Hills beyond.
Blackaddie is one of the most dog friendly hotels in Dumfries & Galloway. With such stunning walking routes on the doorstep, we wouldn't expect you to leave your four legged friends at home!
Most of the rooms and all of the cottages are dog friendly (maximum of two dogs per room/cottage). Your canine companion is also allowed in the public areas of the house apart from the restaurant.
You are of course welcome to bring your own, but they can provide dog beds, towels, treats and water bowls as required.
You have the Southern Upland Way right at the end of the drive, so no matter how far you and your dog like to walk you can do so!
There is a small charge of £10 per night per dog and as a courtesy to others the hotel asks that dogs are well mannered at all times and do not cause a disturbance to other guests during their stay.
