Burns Street - Dumfries

Code: BU01DU

Holiday property description

Centrally located for exploring Dumfries and its connections to Robert Burns:

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.
