Dumfries Lodge House B&BAyrshire, Scotland
With Royal approval
Dumfries House Lodge, opened by the HRH The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay in April 2012, is a luxuriously appointed guest house. Curl up with a book on the comfy lounge sofas, take a guided tour of Dumfries House itself or simply stride out across 2,000 acres of this wonderful country estate to discover all this place has to offer.
Set in the stunning countryside of East Ayrshire, famous for its golf courses and nearby birthplace of Robert Burns (with the most important collection of Burns memorabilia in the world), the Dumfries Estate is the perfect setting for a luxury country weekend.
If you’re not a golfer or need a break from the ‘drive’ you can head for the National Trust of Scotland’s flagship property, Culzean Castle on the coast only 40 minutes’ drive away or abandon the car and wander across the Estate to the Library Restaurant or the Coach House Cafe for a relaxing culinary treat.
Dumfries House is in East Ayrshire (nowhere near Dumfries as suggested by the name) and approximately 1 hour’s drive from Glasgow. (M8 – M77 – A70). The Lodge is at the A70 entrance to the estate on the stretch of road between the village of Ochiltree and town of Cumnock.
About The Owners
Dumfries House and its estate is managed by a Trust set up using one of The Prince’s Scottish Title – The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust.
Dumfries house lodge and self catering cottages are managed by Mark Robson who was appointed in January 2012 before the renovation works were completed, and prior to the official opening by HRH The Duke of Rothesay. Mark had a lot of input into the refurbishment programme and helped the interior designer, Annabel Elliot, with the overall finish and look of the properties. Prior to his appointment at Dumfries house, Mark ran his own award winning Bed & Breakfast and holiday cottages in the picturesque village of Alloway. He has also worked in hospitality for the last 25 years most of which were with British Airways as Cabin crew.
