Number 48 - Dumfries

Code: BR02DU

Holiday property description

Ideally located close to Dumfries town centre & railway station:

No 48 is the perfect 'couples retreat,' located in the centre of the bustling market town of Dumfries. The ground floor property is finished to a very high standard with plush furnishings, a separate dining room and enclosed shared patio area to the rear, complete with seating.
Dumfries, known as Queen of the South and county town to the region of Dumfries and Galloway, enjoys a rich and varied history, with links to numerous people of note. The Scottish poet Rabbie Burns lived, worked and died at Burns House, which has now become a place of pilgrimage for Burns enthusiasts from around the world, retaining much of its eighteenth-century character and many relics once belonging to the poet. Additionally, Ellisland Farm, also a previous home of Burns and now a museum, is located just outside Dumfries, at Auldgirth near Dunscore. Further down the River Nith, but still in Dumfries itself is Moat Brae, one-time home of J M Barrie and inspiration behind the children's classic Peter Pan. Recently renovated and opening to the public in late-2018 the house is set to become a museum and national centre for children's literature, with educational discovery garden featuring a tea room and art installations. The surrounding area also boasts many beautiful castles but, most especially, a trip to Threave and Caerlaverock will never disappoint.

The shopping is reasonable with many of the usual chains making an appearance, plus a selection of independent gift type shops. The nearby towns of Castle Douglas, the region's 'Food Town' and Kirkcudbright, Artist Town and home of Edward Atkinson Hornel of Glasgow Boy fame, are also great for original gift ideas.

The local countryside is a haven for wildlife of all kinds but is particularly favoured by red kite and squirrels, and migratory birds like barnacle geese and osprey. Viewing hides are available now at many locations including Caerlaverock Wildlife and Wetland Trust, just along the coast from Dumfries, RSPB Mersehead by Southwick, Ken Dee Marches near Laurieston and Eskrigg Nature Reserve at Lockerbie.

Number 48 Reviews


5 star review

Number 48 was exactly what we had hoped for - a warm, comfortable apartment, easy to reach from the railway station and perfect as a base to explore the area. The flat is well equipped, cosy and we received a very warm welcome from the owners.

We slept well in the comfy bed and felt completely at home. It's easy to cook for yourself as the kitchen has everything you need, plus there are a few supermarkets just along the road. Although just one bedroom, there's a separate dining room as well as the living room, so loads of space for two people.

The little garden at the back would be a great place to sit on a sunny day. We had snow but enjoyed looking out at the garden.

For things to do, we recommend a trip to Caerlaverock Castle, very interesting and atmospheric. Easy to get to if you drive - we don't, but took a local bus there with no problems.

We ate at the Italian restaurant "Dolce Vita" and enjoyed it. Another night we had a takeaway from the Indian restaurant Daksh. That was good too.

Would definitely recommend this property.
What a fantastic first review for No 48.  We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your handy tips on Dumfries.
