  • "This was our second visit."

    A lovely, fully equipped cottage. A welcoming host who is available if needed but does not intrude. A welcome pack is provided which was very useful.

  • "Very enjoyable stay at a very comfortable, spacious and well presented property."

    The owners prepared everything nicely for our arrival and we felt welcome. Very close to the Hetland Hall Hotel, Carrutherstown pub, Hetland garden centre with a nice café and the Dino Park (you can see dinosaurs from the Buckled Barn's driveway!). Close (but not too close) to the A75 for easy access to nearby towns and sites of interest. The games room is a nice feature, as is the wood burner. We will certainly be returning as and when we can.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to Buckled Barn. Property Owner

The property

Buckled Barn is a beautiful, stone-fronted cottage situated in the picturesque village of Carrutherstown near Annan, Dumfries and Galloway.

Ideal for a family or group of friends, Buckled Barn boasts a games room, charming outdoor area and a woodburning stove so you can truly make the most of your stunning base all year round.

After parking up, step inside your new home-from-home and be welcomed by a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The cosy woodburning stove in the sitting room is the perfect spot to warm your toes after a long day of exploring the picturesque countryside; complete with a Smart TV, you can also enjoy a movie night with loved ones, or head down the hallway for a competitive evening in the games room.

The kitchen is well-equipped with all the essentials you need for a week away, and the charming dining room is a lovely spot for a family dinner.

Alternatively, if you prefer to dine alfresco, why not make base outside on the private patio, toasting to a memorable retreat over a bottle of fizz!

When sleep calls, retreat upstairs to wash away the day in the bathroom, before hunkering down in one of two neatly-presented bedrooms, comprising a double and a twin, in preparation for another day of exciting adventures.

In the morning, venture into the nearby market town of Annan, where you’ll find all the necessities for your stay including convenience stores, pubs and local restaurants like La Fortuna Restaurant and Pizzeria.

Perhaps head into the city of Dumfries, home to the Old Bridge House, Dumfries Museum and Robert Burns House, for an afternoon of culture and history.

Continue to the vibrant city of Carlisle, well worth the drive, to explore the Carlisle Castle with its long history, the impressive Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery and the iconic Hadrian’s Wall.

You will find everything you need for an unforgettable holiday at Buckled Barn.

About the location


Dumfries 15.7 miles; Carlisle 20 miles

The town of Annan, a former harbour, lies on the banks of the River Annan, in East Dumfries and Galloway, and is steeped in history, with the area once the site of Roman camps and the workplace of the writer Thomas Carlyle. Each year, the town celebrates the Riding of the Marches, in honour of the Royal Charter bestowed by King James V, which involves parades, massed pipe bands and competitions. The area around Annan has many small towns, picture postcard villages and hamlets, plus beautiful unspoilt coastline, with sandy beaches and hidden coves. Visit nearby Caerlaverock Castle, one of Scotland's finest ruined castles or Annandale Distillery. Take a day trip and marvel at the majestic architecture of the grand abbeys of Melrose and Jedburgh or visit the northern Lake District and the historic Hadrian’s Wall. Annan is an ideal base for exploring this lovely area.
