About your hosts

Ronnie & Angie receive their Scottish Thistle Award
Angie and Ronnie Bradford
are passionate about the beautiful Glenkens area surrounding Brookford B&B and are keen to make sure our guests experience the very best of Dumfries and Galloway and southern Scotland. This commitment has been rewarded by Brookford B&B being voted the 'Scotland's Most Hospitable B&B of 2017' in the annual Visit Scotland Regional Thistle Awards,  runner up in the 2018/19 West of Scotland awards and most recently Regional Finalist for 2019/20. 

In particular, Ronnie has dedicated most of the last decade to promoting sustainable Tourism as a past director of a leading company in online promotion of tourism in southern Scotland and as a Board member responsible for the UNESCO Galloway and Southern Ayrshire BiosphereDirector of VSWS Cooperative Ltd, the regions Tourism Industry organisation and past Director of Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of Commerce responsible for Tourism affairs

Angie has family connections to the Glenkens and was born locally spending some of her early years in nearby New Galloway. These connections continue today with our eldest daughter and her family (Yes, we are grandparents!) choosing to return to live in Dalry. Our other daughter has also chosen to settle in the region after returning from Australia - There's no place like home!

Put simply, Angie and Ronnie are unlike any other B&B proprietors as we family ties stretching back three generations and a deep passion for Dumfries and Galloway and southern Scotland and would be delighted to show you how we translate this into our hospitality. We hope to see you soon!
