    “THE POSITIVES Lovely house – great views from the balcony (wake up to baa-ing sheep in the mornings!”

    ) ...

    ) Lots of space Very comfy beds Well stocked kitchen - good quality crockery and pots + pans Full sized snooker table Lovely well maintained gardens THE 'NOT-SO-POSITIVES'’ (I don’t do ‘negatives’) Jacuzzi not working – we weren’t made aware of this even up to a few days prior to travel and had it not been for one of these feedbacks (thanks you Mrs Taylor from July 2020), we wouldn’t have been any wiser. Sykes claiming the owners never told them, owners say Sykes were informed of this. Anyway that was a big downer. Also took a few days for us to realise that the DVD player had been stolen by previous guests so no DVD player available either. They have a nice big BBQ but it needs a good clean! Sofas not as comfy as they look- they’ve seen better days and really need scrapping for a house of this standard There were a few issues with the property – a nest of insects in one of the bedrooms, bad smell from one of the ensuites (got fixed), bad smell from downstairs WC, window handle broken (got fixed), conservatory window not closing, and on the final day there was a leak in the roof. The owners were lovely and tried to help as much as they could but many of the jobs were not “quick fixes” so couldn’t be sorted during our stay. SUMMARY All in all, a very nice property which just needs a bit of TLC, and needs to be inspected thoroughly after each stay so that breakages / things going missing can be reported in a timely fashion so at least guests can be informed of them if they cannot be replaced / repaired in time. Good choice – you’ll love Dumfries & Galloway.

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.
