What our guests are saying

Meet Your Hosts

Michael and Jennifer Dobson have been farming at Hillhead since 2016. The farm itself has a long history, once being part of the Buccleuch estate. Situated at the top of Kirkbride hill the land falls away around the steading.

Michael is from a long line of farmers in the Kendal area of the Lake District with Jennifer joining him in 2009. They run a pedigree herd of Shorthorn cattle and pedigree North Country Cheviot sheep. They moved north of the border to take on a new challenge at Hillhead farm with their two children in 2016.

Each pod has a view out to the hills of the southern uplands, and are cosy in both Summer and Winter. Great for family time, exploring what the area has to offer or a romantic break. Jennifer, Michael and the boys are glad to welcome you to the pod site. Hillhead farm is the perfect setting to relax and reconnect with loved ones.

The pods are a short 20 minute drive from Dumfries, the largest town in south west Scotland. If it is a romantic getaway or a time to celebrate with family & friends, Hillhead can accommodate you and our location will most certainly captivate you. You will be spoilt for choice with a diverse range of activities, restaurants, beauty spots & events.
