Dumfries House Estate, Cumnock, KA18 2NJ
Dumfries House is one of Britain’s most beautiful stately homes and best-kept heritage secrets. It has sumptuous interiors and magnificent furnishings, all set in two thousand acres of land. Built between 1754 and 1759 for the 5th Earl of Dumfries, and with a unique collection of Chippendale furniture, the House has been described as an 18th century time capsule since the principal rooms and their contents have remained virtually unchanged for 250 years.
In June 2007, HRH The Prince of Wales, headed a consortium of charities and heritage bodies to purchase this unique house, its contents and adjoining land, in order to keep this historical jewel intact and accessible to the public.
The House is only the beginning. HRH The Prince Charles has also set in motion several exciting projects that will not only reinvigorate the surrounding area, but will also create a lasting and creative legacy for many years to come.
