Things to do

Annan is excellently located, minutes from the A75 and M74 trunk roads yet set amongst beautiful, quiet Scottish countryside.  A well stocked, busy high street hosts a good selection of larger chain and smaller, independent local shops, cafes, takeaways and restaurants, with a large supermarket a little further up the road.

Right on our doorstep there is an abundance of attractions, facilities and activities waiting to be explored, including:

Caerlavorock Castle

River Annan

The picturesque River Annan, famous for its Salmon and Trout fishing and abundance of wildlife flows along part of the farm’s boundary.

River Annan

Guests and locals alike can enjoy the wonderful riverside walk along the path, a loop consisting of two footbridges around one mile apart. Fishing on the river can be organised, subject to availability of rods.


Slightly further afield, the great border city of Carlisle is a short 20 minute drive away and home to both city facilities and attractions.


A busy high street, large retail parks and Carlisle Castle, Cathedral, Tullie House museum, the Sands Centre and a small dry ski slope all feature alongside the usual city facilities.

The Lake District

Annan is within a comfortable hour’s drive of Keswick, right in the heart of the beautiful English Lake District, with an abundance of outdoor activities to choose from.

Buttermere Lake District

Particularly popular attractions include GoApe at both Whinlater & Coniston, Ullswater Steamers and dozens of picturesque towns and villages.

"A beautiful spacious cottage, much bigger than it looks in the pictures. We went as a family of 4 and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the hot tub." Yvonne - Airbnb, February 2020
