  • "We had a fantastic Christmas stay at Mayfield House."

    It is very easy to find and only 10mins walk to the town centre. The house is stunning, spacious with beautiful decoration. There is everything you could possibly need in the house, and more! It was also beautifully decorated for Christmas. The garden was also beautiful, even in winter, with a high spec hot tub. We woke up to snow lying on boxing day. We had much needed family time together and the house made it extra special. Everything was perfect. Dawn and Scott are very welcoming and helpful hosts and are on hand if you need help. We would highly recommend Mayfield House to future guests. Thanks Dawn and Scott. We hope to see you again sometime.

About the location


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.
