Be welcomed through into an enclosed garden and feel at home as you kick off your shoes, taking your pick between two charming sitting rooms, one boasts a TV and a woodburning stove for cosy film nights, whilst the other also hosts a woodburning stove and plush seating, perfect for a private afternoon accompanied by your favourite book.

Resting behind is a country-style kitchen/diner, stocked with fantastic appliances for all your home-cooking needs, as well as an intimate dining table where you can toast to a wonderful holiday over a delicious meal.

About the location


Dumfries 21 miles

Nestling in the Annandale valley, Moffat developed in the 17th century from a village to a spa town where the sulphurous waters of the Moffat Well were held to have the power to heal and this led to an influx of visitors throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Many of the buildings in the town date from this period and the present Town Hall was originally developed as a Bath House. The original well can still be visited and is a 1.5 mile walk from the town into the surrounding countryside. In addition to its renown as a spa town, Moffat also grew in stature due to the wool trade and also its position as a stopping point on journeys between England and Scotland. Today the town is popular with tourists and not just because of the superb scenery affording many opportunities for great walking, cycling and fishing. Situated 50 miles from Glasgow and Edinburgh, Moffat is the ideal base for travelling to events in the cities. It has a range of attractions including the Moffat Museum, theatres, art galleries and a selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. Treat yourself to some famous Moffat Toffee and don’t miss the annual Moffat Gala in July and not forgetting the renowned Moffat Sheep Races in August!

Two well-behaved dogs welcome, dog beds and bowls are provided in the property, please do not allow pets on any of the beds or in the bedrooms of Strathannan
