Sitting on the edge of the 2,000 acres of Dumfries House Estate, Dumfries House Lodge includes an exclusive country guest house and self-catering cottages offering luxury, 5-star accommodation.
Once the Farm Foreman’s House and then the Factor’s House right up until halfway through the 20th Century, the Lodge has been carefully adapted and extended to a provide a luxurious experience while still maintaining a homely feel. Besides the comfort and beauty of their rooms, guests will enjoy open-log fires in the cozy lounge or snug study, stunning gardens, a courtyard and walkable access to the wider estate.
Each of the 22 en suite guest rooms has been individually styled with complete comfort in mind and features carefully selected antique pieces. All rooms enjoy modern facilities including:
All guest room packages include a spectacular hot and cold breakfast. Breakfast is served in two dining rooms and features a showcase of local and the wider Scottish larder. The seasonal produce on offer is harvested directly from the 5-acres Walled Garden with Grants in Prestwick supplying our other fruit and vegetable needs.Free range eggs come from Stuart Rutherford in the Nith Valley in the South West of Scotland, and Tarelgin, the butchers who have their farmshop just up the road from the Lodge, make our Lorne (square) sausage, black pudding and haggis. Our porridge oats come from Scotts Porage, a company the Scott brothers started in Glasgow over a 130 years ago. Preserves are from a family business in North East Scotland – Isabella’s Preserves. Teas are by Jeniers based in Johnstone, which has a history going back to the tea pioneers, James Taylor and the Bruce brothers. These are just a few of the treats on our breakfast menu that guests can enjoy each morning while looking out on our garden views.
After breakfast, visitors can choose to spend their day enjoying the Estate's numerous attractions.
A visit to Dumfries House for a guided tour is an absolute must. Featuring one of the world's finest collection of Chippendale furniture, the House's 18th-century grandeur can be enjoyed by people of all ages and bakgrounds.
Following a tour, explore the many country walks that wind through our gardens, woodlands and aboretuem and see the Walled Garden and the many surprising stopping points that can be found across the Estate. Go around sunset to view the most picturesque reflections in the arboretum ponds.
After your leisurely walk, come dine in the Coach House Café for a morning coffee, light lunch or afternoon tea. Converted from its role as the Estate's stables, the Cafe retains its rustic feel but now serves cakes and savouries rather than hay!
We will also be happy to make you a reservation at Estate's superb The Woodlands restaurant, which is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings plus Sunday lunch. This is also the hub for the Hospitality School's “Get into Hospitality” training, a 5-week programme for 16 to 25 year olds that we co-run with The Prince's Trust Scotland.
If you are looking to venture off of the Estate, the wider area of Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway offers plenty to see and do with gardens, castles, Burns Country and the seaside. Ask our staff for further details.
