  • "Wow, what a cottage!"

    Amazing location, beautiful surroundings, immaculate cottage, very equipped kitchen (I took some things from home but I didn't need to as the kitchen had everything!), a surprise welcome hamper and a very friendly and efficient host. I just wish we could have stayed longer as it was simply perfect. We'll definitely return, thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback, look forward to seeing you next time . Property Owner

Nearby, you can discover the iconic Twelve Apostles Stone Circle, as well as the scenic Galloway Forest, the UK’s first dark sky park, with 300 square miles of stunning land to wander through during daylight and offering superb stargazing opportunities come the night.

Head five miles to the town of Annan, characterized by narrow winding streets, historic stone buildings, and a market square that reflects its market town heritage.

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.
