The Loft, a former 19th Century stable block, is a welcoming cottage that has an open plan living area and two bedrooms. There are also wonderful onsite facilities, including a hot tub and games room.

The Loft is a welcoming end of terrace cottage, on a working livestock farm, situated just three miles from the historic town of Annan. The cottage is a former 19th Century stable block, which has been renovated to a good standard to provide a light and airy open plan living area with a well equipped fitted kitchen area and sitting area that has wonderful picture windows, which overlook the farm. This cottage sleeps four and has two bedrooms - one double and one single, plus there are many shared on-site facilities including a hot tub, games room, children's playground and gardens.

There are many attractions and places to visit nearby, such as Annan with its links to history, and walkers, cyclists and golfers are all well catered for with many walks, cycle tracks and golf courses in the area. The breathtaking Lake District and Hadrian's Wall are within driving distance. The Loft is an ideal cottage from which to explore this magnificent area.


A very nice place to stay. The owners were friendly and welcoming. The property itself was cozy and warm. The hot tub was just amazing after a day out on the cold :) However...it is on a working farm so the animals could be noisy at times and farmers have an early start...if that's your thing then I would definitely recommend it as a base :)

Wonderful, cosy home from home.
I have just returned from a stay at The Loft and it was a lovely, comfortable stay. The cottage was immaculate and lovely and warm, just what we needed with the wet weather. We had a warm welcome from the owner and there were fresh flowers, milk, biscuits etc on arrival which was a lovely touch. There is a games room with pool table, loads of toys, DVD's etc. The hot tub was clean and perfect for relaxing after a day in the chilly wet weather. Both the games room and hot tub were shared but we never saw anyone else go in them during our stay. Our three year old especially liked being greeted by the three farm dogs in the morning, they were all incredibly chilled out, friendly dogs. The farm is located in a beautiful area and not too far from Annan. We would definitely return here, possibly in the summer months when more of the nearby seasonal places are open. All in all a really pleasant stay.

We liked the farm setting, animals and the very welcoming owners. The kitchen was well equipped, the bedrooms were comfortable and the heating was great.

My hols was booked through Scottish Cottages . When we arrived we were confronted by a building site 100 yards from property. Two large dogs followed us around and my own dogs were really upset. the wind got up during the evening and together with the noise of the machinery on building site was intolerable . During the night we could not sleep with the noise the next day we were moved.The owners agreed the property was not fit for letting during building work and no warning was given to Scottish Cottages Scottish Cottages were very good however

A well set up cottage with plenty of room for two. A good base for exploring Southern Scotland. Enjoyed our stay.
