Dumfries House

Originally a Palladian Country House, the ‘Dumfries House’ is quoted to be one among Britain’s beautiful, stately homes.

The building, which dates back to the 1750s, speaks a lot about the era as many of the important rooms along with its contents have been preserved intact for 250 years now. In fact, it is the exclusive collection of 18th century Chippendale furniture (at least 50 pieces by the popular British furniture maker Thomas Chippendale) which garners the attention of most of the visitors here. The building also has a fine collection of Scottish rococo furniture.

Set in a large estate (almost two thousand acres of land), the Dumfries House is located in Ayrshire. In the year 2007, the estate was purchased from an auction and thus saved for the nation by the Prince of Wales and reinstated to its previous glory.
