Back in the day, the Friars Carse in Dumfries regularly played host to the Scottish poet Robert Burns. Now, it's not only home to an intriguing heritage, but its very own stretch of the River Nith. Whether you're here for the history or the fishing, this Escape to the sophisticated venue is a real catch.

Two people will spend one night here for £59 (up to a £115 value), or two nights for £99 (up to a £230 value). Alternatively, land two nights plus a three-course dinner for £169 (up to a £299.90 value). Whichever package you pick, you'll be fishing for the compliments to cover your accommodation: your double or twin room features en suite with bath or shower, TV, radio, daily hospitality tray, and Wi-Fi access.

Time to tackle the good stuff: included with every package is daily breakfast at the Whistle Restaurant, while gourmet stays also come with a three-course dinner on the first night and a bottle of wine if you dine on the second night. Take the bait and choose from a menu that features locally sourced produce wherever possible.

Local attractions include not only grayling, salmon, and sea trout fishing on-site, but further afield, Burns Hermitage, the Burns Trail, several golf clubs, and the Loreburne Shopping Centre.
