    “Chesters is a beautiful, very large, modern house that easily accommodated out party of nine adults.”

    All the bedrooms are of a good size (master suite, king size ensuite, double, twin, and triple bunk). As well as the ensuite king rooms, there was an additional fabulous family bathroom with sunken Jacuzzi bath and separate shower, plus an additional two cloakrooms. There was plenty living space so that people were not all falling over each other. The kitchen was very well appointed and there was a nice little conservatory just off. ...

    All the bedrooms are of a good size (master suite, king size ensuite, double, twin, and triple bunk). As well as the ensuite king rooms, there was an additional fabulous family bathroom with sunken Jacuzzi bath and separate shower, plus an additional two cloakrooms. There was plenty living space so that people were not all falling over each other. The kitchen was very well appointed and there was a nice little conservatory just off. The owners kept us informed of local conditions following the recent storms and bad weather which was very helpful as we were all travelling to the house. The owners also knew we were hosting this family event for a milestone birthday and a wedding anniversary and left us some delicious goodies and decorations which were all greatly appreciated. The house is a wee bit awkward to find so if possible just type in Georgetown Road, Dumfries into the satnav and keep going all the way along. You may think you are going to run out of road but the house is right at the end on the left side. We all had a great weekend and were very sad to pack up on Sunday night.

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.
