To do and see in D&G

The Old Schoolhouse is a 19th Century Schoolmaster’s house situated approximately 5 miles from Dumfries town centre, in a rural location, near the parish of Irongray.

Our philosophy in equipping the accommodation has been simple. Think of what we would like- if we were staying there ourselves- and provide it! It is well appointed, with three comfortable bedrooms (a double, a king size, and a twin/superking,two of the rooms have TVs), a large living room with 32” LCD TV, DVD, freeview via satellite dish, games, books, DVDs etc and a Nintendo Wii with various games including Wii Fit! and, of course, boradband. Basically- everything you would have in your own home and a large, well equipped kitchen/dining room. The bathroom is a triumph, with its original, roll-top bath and delicate decor, plus a separate shower room with wc. There is also a separate laundry room with a washer/dryer and ample drying facilities.

The house has its own private garden, with two mature apple trees (help yourself!), and with all the necessary garden furniture etc. Children are welcome to use the climbing frame in the adjacent orchard with parental supervision and discretion.

As well as all of this, the Old School & Schoolhouse share thier own private woodland.
This is approximately 3.5 acres of woodland on the other side of the road from the property. It has two burns running through it and is a great place for the kids to run around (appropriately supervised, of course)- or just to go for an after dinner stroll. In the middle of the wood is the fire pit- a barbeque area in a clearing in the wood. It is a wonderful place for a summer barbie.

**All linens/towels, electicity & oil are included**

Turn up & sit down!

Here at the Old School & Old Schoolhouse we like to operate a ‘turn up & sit down’ policy. This means you’ll find at least a small supply of all the basics on your arrival so that you could turn up and sit down for the first day of your holiday. Why not have your whole week's groceries delivered by one of the main supermarkets.

These basics include: Tea, coffee and sugar, Salt and pepper, Herbs and spices, Tea towels - one for each day, Cling film and tin foil, Wash up liquid, Laundry detergent, bin bags and other cleaning essentials, Hair dryer, Ironing board and iron, Bathroom soap, bathbombs and/or other bath smellies, Logs for the fires.
