The former Burnbank Hotel offers a wealth of opportunities for any potential purchaser. Until recently the premises was run as a small hotel, restaurant and public bar. It currently offers a commercial kitchen, cellar, public and lounge bar, public dining room, guest lounge, private lounge and private kitchen, male and female toilet facilities, office and nine bedrooms. The property could be reverted back to being run as a hotel, restaurant and bar. Equally, there is the potential, with the correct planning consents, for the property to be converted to (potentially 2) residential properties or be subdivided to offer a combination of the commercial and residential. This could be but is not limited to holiday apartments, air bnb, self-catering or pure residential use.
The former Burnbank Hotel is situated within the heart of Twynholm which provides a primary school, village shop, church, garage, village hall, a small hotel and is on major bus routes being immediately accessible to the A75 euro-route. A wider range of amenities and services are available in the nearby towns of Kirkcudbright and Castle Douglas. The harbour town of Kirkcudbright, also known as Scotland’s ‘Artists’ Town’, is very popular with tourists, particularly in the summer months with a range of festivities and events. The town provides a range of services including two small supermarkets and individual specialist shops, parish church, museum, library, doctor’s surgery, optician, bank, a cottage hospital, two veterinary practices, swimming pool, tennis court, bowling green, as well as a primary and secondary school. The nearby market town of Castle Douglas also has a good range of shops and other services, and is designated Dumfries and Galloway’s ‘Food Town’. The regional capital of Dumfries offers a wider range of shops, retail outlets and services including the Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary and the Crichton Campus providing further education courses.
Communications to the area are very good, with railway stations in both Dumfries and Lockerbie. The M74 motorway is accessible at Moffat and Lockerbie, allowing easy access north and south.
