B&B in Dumfries

The ancient town of Dumfries lies on the banks of the River Nith and is often called the "Queen of the South". It's got a long history that is best explored while walking through its atmospheric lanes, lined with distinctive red-stone buildings, some of which date back centuries. Dumfries isn't about to modernise anytime soon, but that's the charm of it. Visitors come to stay in Dumfries bed and breakfasts to amble through the weekend farmers' market, explore the historic buildings and discover the town's past, in the museums. Don't just stick to the town, though. The rolling hills and green countryside provide ample opportunities for walking, wildlife spotting or other outdoor pursuits. It's easy to fall for Dumfries and when you arrive, you'll quickly find out why.

  • Stay in the historic centre of Dumfries
  • Score a guestroom with character and personality
  • Save on the sky-high cost of a hotel room
  • Stay with locals who know the town like the back of their hand

Budget and Luxury B&Bs, Dumfries

It doesn't matter whether you are coming on a romantic break with your partner, using the town as a jumping off point for exploring the countryside or bringing the family on an attraction-laden weekend break, most will agree that the bed and breakfasts in Dumfries make for the perfect base. Perhaps it's the homely atmosphere or the friendly owners. Maybe it's the cost difference between a B&B and a hotel. Either way, you'll always find your perfect B&B match when you look through the listings on Expedia. Just search by date, location and budget, scan through the detailed descriptions and photos, and book in just a few clicks. You're spoilt for choice when it comes to bed and breakfasts in Dumfries. Some are traditional red-stone houses with just a handful of guestrooms for a limited number of guests. Others are a little swisher, with Scottish-inspired decor and luxurious furnishings, that wouldn't look out of place on the pages of an interior designs magazine. Then there's the country cottages outside the city, which give you access to both the town and the hiking trails. Whichever you choose, you're always guaranteed a comfortable stress-free stay when you book a night through Expedia.

Checking in to your guestroom is always a breeze and while you're settling in you'll find that most come equipped with all the modern conveniences that you might expect, like a kettle for making hot drinks, storage for your belongings and comfortable double beds wrapped in freshly pressed sheets. Some might have ensuite bathrooms with shower units and separate tubs, others might have shared family facilities. If you pick right, you could have a free spot to park your car or a pet-friendly B&B to bring the dogs to. Come daybreak, you can set yourself up for the day with a hearty Scottish breakfast, including bowls of porridge cooked the right way, toast and pastries, all washed down with plenty of freshly brewed tea. If Dumfries doesn't feel right for your break, why not give the capital, Edinburgh, a go instead?

History Aplenty Near Your B&B, Dumfries

If you're interested in Scottish history, you've come to the right place. When you stay in a Dumfries bed and breakfast, you'll be just a stone's throw from several excellent museums and galleries. A good starting point is the Dumfries Museum, which houses an impressive collection of artefacts, including the world's oldest working camera obscura. Then there's the Robert Burns House, a museum celebrating the life and work of Scotland's most beloved poet, or the Old Bridge House Museum, which showcases life throughout the last few centuries. If you're interested in art, the Gracefield Arts Centre is packed with Scottish paintings and might be just the ticket. Alternatively, hop in your car and head out to the 13th-century Caerlaverock Castle, to explore one of Scotland's most impressive medieval fortresses.
