    “This cottage feels like a real home from home.”

    Julie, the owner, was helpful when I phoned her before our arrival and also when I had a couple of questions while we were away. It was peaceful and warm and, despite the fact it rained a lot, a good base to set out from on a day trip. ...

    Julie, the owner, was helpful when I phoned her before our arrival and also when I had a couple of questions while we were away. It was peaceful and warm and, despite the fact it rained a lot, a good base to set out from on a day trip. We went with our two children (4 and 2) and they loved sitting on the large windowsills and looking out onto the Solway Firth. The back garden with picnic bench was nice for them to play in but they had to be supervised at all times, as you can access the road by following the side of the house round. Although not too busy there is regular traffic going to the hotel and golf course. From the back you can see onto the neighbours’ cottages and back gardens - they were friendly and checked we were having a good time. There are large dogs next door which did bark quite a lot whenever we opened the back door and a few times some young boys on bikes were playing on the shared access road up the side of the house, so it didn’t always feel private when in the kitchen or accessing the garden. The beds are comfy and the house was spotlessly clean throughout. The wine and chocolates on arrival were a welcome touch. We had our shopping delivered on the evening we arrived, so didn’t need to find a supermarket. This was handy as there were not any small local shops in Powfoot that we found. There is a very small park/playground which was good for our children though, about a 15 minute walk away. You see the sign for it as you drive in to Powfoot. We could have done with a bit more info in the file about the house, such as when to put the bin out, but there were lots of leaflets about the local area. There isn’t much to do in Powfoot itself, other than to walk along the sand. It is not beachy sand, but clay-like... so you can’t build sandcastles on there. We drove to SandyHills, about an hour away, which was better for sandcastle building. We also drove to Threave Estate and gardens, about 50 mins away, which was lovely- as well as Gretna Green (it was all still closed up from Covid restrictions, even though the website didn’t say this!) and to Loch Mabel nature reserve for a walk and a picnic, so there is enough to do if you’re willing to drive there. The cottage is a great base from which to explore, but if you want things on your doorstep just to walk to, like a pub or a shops, then this is not the place for you. We have had a lovely week. We would visit again, simply for the cottage, knowing how lovely it is, but not necessarily for the location.

The property

Alongside off-road parking, to the rear of the property you can find a lawned area where you can sit while the pleasant sea breeze washes over you.

Take a stroll down to the seafront and bathe in the sands or make a splash in the sea before a game of golf ahead of an action-packed day in Annan; full of history and excitement of all kinds in the form of a motte and bailey castle, a museum, a pleasant park and a swimming pool just to name a few of its amusements, it makes a fantastic day out for all tastes.

Further afield you can reach Dumfries, a traditional county town hosting an abundance of wonder at any time of year.

About the location

POWFOOT, ANNAN

Carlisle 19 miles

The near-by Royal Burgh of Annan, featuring the site of a 12th century motte and bailey castle and an ancient harbour undergoing a phased restoration, lies on the banks of the River Annan in east Dumfries and Galloway. The area is steeped in history and was once the site of Roman camps and the birthplace of famous writer Thomas Carlyle. Each year on the first Saturday in July, Annan celebrates the Riding of the Marches in honour of the Royal Charter bestowed by King James V. The festival includes a large cavalcade of horses and riders inspecting historic boundaries on land and the Solway sands, while also featuring parades, massed pipe bands, competitions and sports. Annan is capital of Annandale and Eskdale which has a number of distinctive small towns, picture-postcard villages and hamlets, plus a beautiful unspoilt coastline with rugged shores, beaches and hidden coves. Visit imposing Caerlaverock Castle, a little to the west, or in the other direction take a tour and a tipple at internationally famous Annandale Distillery at Annan. Close by is the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) reserve at Caerlaverock, sometimes featured in the popular BBC TV Autumn Watch programmes. Guests can easily marvel at the majestic architecture of the abbeys at Melrose and Jedburgh, visit the northern Lake District or historic Hadrian's Wall and perhaps take in the romance of famous marriage capital Gretna Green. Also why not explore the 'wild west' country frequented by the notorious Border Reivers or some of the haunts of Scotland's national bard Robert Burns?
