About the property

Number 5 Burns Street offers close to town centre accommodation in what is arguably Dumfries' most famous street, named after Robert Burns, who lived, worked and died in the house diagonally opposite. Burns Street itself is a partially-cobbled and quiet street, tucked away, but only a 5 minute walk to the town centre. There are good free parking facilities at the door and near-by. The riverside and Dock Park are only a two minute walk away and, St Michael's Kirk with its Mausoleum to Robert Burns, is 200 yards from the front door and within full view.

The accommodation is a cosy semi-detached bungalow of traditional red sandstone. High ceilings give it a light and airy feel with all the comforts of a cottage. There are many restaurants, food outlets and supermarkets nearby. Dumfries town has a variety of historic buildings to explore, including Moat Brae, said to be inspiration for J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. (Currently only open by arrangement)

Dumfries is well-placed to enjoy all kinds of opportunities for wildlife-watching, walking and hill-walking, visiting gardens and exploring castles and abbeys. There is a wide variety of locations to experience, including forests and coastal areas.

Excellent accommodation very close to town and local amenities.

  • 5 of 5

A home from home with all those little touches you don't get from hotel rooms. Owners are very helpful and can't do enough for you before and during your stay. Will definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

Excellent location near High Street and connection to local bus services throughout Dumfries and Galloway. All home from home nick knacks provided, except a pizza cutter, ha ha, we used a knife! 1 double and 2 singles for sleeping. A great bolt hole for a few days or even longer. We should be back again.

Very nice place

  • 4 of 5

I had a very pleasant stay in the house that is fully equipped - really everything you need. What I found corresponded exactly to the description, everything was clean and tidy. Its location close to the city center - and opposite to the house where Robert Burns lived and died - made it easy to shop and to go out, no car needed at all. The house was a good starting point to a lot of attractions nearby. Apart from this, the owners are very nice and friendly, quick to respond to any questions, however, there were hardly any - everything fine!

I can honestly recommend this accomodation for travellers including families up to four persons!
