    The house was generally comfortable and clean however the lack of storage in the bedrooms was really disappointing. The main bedroom has 2 bedside cabinets with 3 small drawers but the second bedroom only has a small table at either side of the bed. There is absolutely no other storage or surface in either room so there nowhere to place a suitcase other than the floor or the bed.

    The house was generally comfortable and clean however the lack of storage in the bedrooms was really disappointing. The main bedroom has 2 bedside cabinets with 3 small drawers but the second bedroom only has a small table at either side of the bed. There is absolutely no other storage or surface in either room so there nowhere to place a suitcase other than the floor or the bed. The fitted wardrobes in the 3rd room only had hanging space and there was only 8 mismatched hangers - not enough for 3 adults for a week! We had to use a dining room chair in one bedroom so that a suitcase could be left on it. With the lack of surfaces in the bedrooms, the ornaments become a pain and had to be moved to accommodate your things. There is no shelf in the shower room, no mirror in the 2nd bedroom, no hooks in the second bedroom, no light shade in the second bedroom, no bucket in the main bathroom and it's a real shame there's no shower in the main bathroom (although I appreciate that the description doesn't state there is one). 1 bath and 1 hand towel per person for a week is the bare minimum but with no hand towel in the bathroom or shower room this decreases two people's towels to 1 each for a week. Disappointing as we appreciated the hand soap beside each sink. The dining room table was pushed into the corner of the kitchen and the legs were wobbling when we tried to pull it out so that meant only 1 chair could be used (the other one being used for the suitcase) and only one side of the table. More town and bus information would be handy as would some info on the buckets (if there was recycling and when they were picked up) Having 10 decorative cushions in each bedroom did not add to the ambience in the rooms, they merely gave you something else to have to put on the floor. A real shame as it's a nice house in a quiet area and it wouldn't take too much effort or cash to resolve these issues.

About the location

DUMFRIES

Castle Douglas 18 miles; Gretna 30 miles; Kirkcudbright 40 miles; Lake District National Park 50 miles;

Known as the Queen of the South, Dumfries is a market town and former royal burgh and is the largest town in south west Scotland. It lies close to the mouth of the River Nith as it opens into the Solway Firth. Its origins are mysterious and are believed to involve at various times the ancient Romans, St Ninian and there is evidence of King Arthur having fought battles in the area. It is also held that Malcolm Canmore and William the Conqueror met here in the 11th century and William Wallace pursued the English through the surrounding Nith valley 200 years later. Robert the Bruce killed his rival John Comyn in the Greyfriars Kirk in Dumfries and Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed in the town for a few days in the mid 18th century and the poet Robert Burns moved to Dumfries in 1791 and staying until his death five years later. Today Dumfries is a bustling popular town with much to offer the visitor. Its location makes it ideal for exploring the coastline with its sandy beaches and rocky inlets to the Galloway Hills and Ae forest offering superb walking and cycling on the famous 7 stanes trails. Visit stunning Caerlaverock Castle and Nature Reserve or indulge in some high octane excitement with the Scottish Rally based in Dumfries each summer.
