Splendid townhouse perfectly positioned in the heart of the historic town of Dumfries. Enjoy the private hot tub and games room with table hockey, games console and simulator gaming chair!

Enjoying a central location in the vibrant market town of Dumfries, this elegant townhouse is the perfect destination for families seeking to explore the unspoilt countryside and breathtaking coastlines of southern Scotland. Stroll into the bustling town to browse the independent stores or enjoy a bite to eat in one of the welcoming pubs or restaurants. Wander along the tranquil banks of the River Nith, pausing to admire the views from the 13th-century sandstone bridges. Hop in the saddle for an exhilarating mountain bike ride along the 7stanes cycle tracks (13 miles) or try your hand at a new water sport on Loch Ken (26 miles).


Situated in the heart of Dumfries, your traditional townhouse boasts spacious accommodation, tastefully decorated in muted tones with period charm and elegance. Generous rooms are perfect for socialising together or you could get competitive in the games room, complete with air hockey and racing simulator. When it’s time for relaxation, indulge in a leisurely soak in the outdoor hot tub gazing up at the stars in the clear skies above.


Enter the property via the two steps that lead to the front door and step into the beautiful light and bright hall which leads to two bedrooms, a spacious king-size bedroom and a restful double room.


Take the period staircase to the lower-ground floor where you will find the really well-equipped kitchen where you can prepare tasty meals to enjoy at the large dining table. Off the kitchen is the handy boot room, ideal for storing outdoor clothes and walking boots. On the half-landing between the lower and ground floors is a convenient utility room with door leading to the private courtyard garden.


Heading back upstairs, you will find the stylish shower room on the half-landing between ground and first floors. Continue to the first floor where you will find the inviting lounge, a restful space to sit, relax and enjoy each others company. The pretty single bedroom is also on this level.


Finally, climb the stairs to the second floor, taking care of the low-coombe ceilings, where younger guests (and those just young at heart) will be delighted to discover a games room complete with Xbox and games, simulator gaming chair, air-hockey and mini-table football.


Outside you will find the fully enclosed private courtyard garden providing a great space for enjoying al fresco meals or an early evening glass of your favourite tipple. Refresh aching limbs in the wonderful hot tub. There is roadside parking in front of the property or in the street opposite.

Within a few hundred metres of Dumfries town centre, discover the fantastic leisure facilities on offer, including the informative Dumfries Museum and Victorian Camera Obscura offering panoramic views of Dumfries and the surrounding countryside. Follow in the footpath of poet Robbie Burns as you take the circular Burn's Walk from the heart of Dumfries, along the tranquil banks of the River Nith to the statue of Burns in front of Greyfriars Church.

Explore the Forest of Ae (13 miles) by foot or pedal. Weave your way through the towering Norway spruce seeking out the red squirrels and herons dipping their beaks in the burn. Hop in the saddle for a leisurely ride through the forest in search of the best vantage point or for a white-knuckle mountain bike adventure, try one of the challenging runs for steep descents and multiple jumps.

Spend your days discovering some of the wonderful beaches that dot the 200 miles of coastline. Walk the wide sandy beach at Southerness (15.5 miles) to reach the 18th century lighthouse, the second oldest in Scotland. Investigate the rock pools and mudflats for wildlife and keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of dolphins and porpoises in the water.

Venture further afield for a day of water sports on Loch Ken (26 miles) where you can try kayaking, sailing or stand-up paddleboarding. Slip, slide and scramble your way along the inflatable obstacle course or if you're feeling adventurous, strap yourself if for a thrilling ride across the loch on the zip wire.

A beautiful house with character and lots of space. This is a real home from home, and was immaculately clean. The hot tub is great and in a lovely secluded area at the back of the house. The location is great as you can walk into town and there are pubs and a chippy within easy walking distance too. Parking is road-side but we always found a spaceRead more outside the house. Hide

Beautiful and very comfortable accommodation. Boys enjoyed their own space in the games room. Hot Tub was wonderful. Would recommend.

Reviewed by John 2nd August 2019

Fantastic decor, great for a family, hot tub was great too, the games room is only meant for small children, but everything else is done to a very high standard, great place and only a short distance to walk into town.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
