    It's well equipped and has a very generous rooms. The dog loved his walks along the beach and surrounding countryside as did we. We wouldn't hesitate to book again.

  • "Where very disappointed in the cleanliness of cottage on arrival mainly living room and bathroom and kitchen ( dog hair,dust,stains,food crumbs,soap scum on shower screen ,under side of toilet seat?"

    ) after compliant cleaner sent back armed with flowers and chocolates and full apologies which was a kind gesture but if done right first time then unnecessary . Sadly this is the second disappointment we have had with Sykes holiday cottages

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We were sorry to hear about the issues regarding the cleaning but we were glad this was sorted almost immediately and the comments were taken on board. Once again, thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

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.
