  • "Greycraig cottage was lovely and peaceful with beautiful surroundings."

    The cottage was clean and well presented on arrival and had the owners contact number if we needed anything. The owner met us when we arrived and welcomed us back o the property which was nice. Overall it was a good experience and we’ll definitely be back.

  • "The cottage is beautiful & very well equipped."

    However an extra frying pan would be useful, especially if a family of 4 stay & would like a cooked breakfast. The double bed is quite creeky when you turn over during the night. None of this affected our stay in any way. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here & would definitely return in the future

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    Decorated lovely. Hot tub was very very hot which to be fair Shirley did warn us about. Very well equipped. We met & we managed to pet the pig wedgie. He was lovely. No-one would deliver food to us at this address even locally. Annan 9 mins away...but we did get ordered & went to pick it up. Check in at 4pm we thought was a bit late & checkout at 10am was very early....other than that....no complaints at all. Its a lovely place.

The property

Annan 3.8 miles.

Nestled on the edge of a nature-friendly, working farm on the outskirts of the quiet town of Annan, Dumfries and Galloway and just a short car journey from Hadrian's Wall, Gretna Green and the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is this charming holiday home, Grey Craig Cottage.

Standing in some 300 acres of farmland, Williamwood Farm, this idyllic rural escape welcomes small families or even friends sharing.

On the estate, there are young woodlands and wild meadow ground where deer, wading birds, foxes and badgers are common place sightings, making it the perfect destination for those who want to enjoy the peace and tranquility that is offered in the lovely mature woodlands or around the loch.

Upon entering the home through the patio doors, be sure to take advantage of the Shaker-style kitchen's full amenities.

Here, scrumptious meals may be rustled up and enjoyed in the tastefully decorated sitting room, which includes soft sofas and a woodburning stove as its focal point.

You can imagine spending many hours in the inviting sitting room in front of the delightful woodburning stove, simply soaking up the gorgeous views over the fields full of wild flowers in summer and onto the loch in the distance, not forgetting the Highland cows grazing away.

You might catch sight of a friendly badger in the garden and you can even watch him on the TV as live feed cameras offer the opportunity for live footage of this beautiful, notoriously shy creature.

Look forward to spending time relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, where the famous dark skies provide for an incredibly calming place to spend your evenings.

When it’s time for bed, two tastefully-decorated bedrooms are waiting to help you get some shut-eye before a day full of activities.

Hop in the shower in the morning or enjoy a relaxing soak in the bath, before heading out refreshed and raring to go.

If you can tear yourself away from the home comforts of Grey Craig Cottage then there is plenty of exploring to do in the local area.

Be sure to spend the day at the Courtship Maze and retail park, a real family-friendly location or visit The Devil’s Porridge War Museum on your way to Gretna Green, where you can explore historic sites like Quintinshill. The renowned Scottish poet Robert Burns was born in Dumfries, where you can also visit his memorial.

Robert The Bruce was also a resident of the area, with Bruce's Cave nearby to tour, along with splendid castles such as Drumlanrig Sweetheart Abbey and Carlisle.

For an energetic activity, try some bowling at the Hollywood Bowl or swimming at Annan or Dumfries.

Offering all the fun of the farm and so much more, a stay at Grey Craig Cottage is certain to be memorable.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
