Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Williamwood Cottage is a lovely newly refurbished farm cottage, set in its own secluded garden. A patio with garden furniture leading from the master bedroom is ideal for sunny summer breakfasts. This cottage is ideal for families and is well within walking distance of our new CHILDREN'S PLAY FARM, where we have a variety of minature animals to cuddle. Also within the area is a play area complete with climbing farm and for Mum and Dad a picnic area to take in the views over the Solway Coast.
Should you be more inclined to walking, cycling, photography or riding, we have a newly created circular route round the farm, all fenced off from the animals but allowing you to see our highland cattle, sheep and ponies in their natural habitat. These areas are AWARD WINNING CONSERVATION areas and the opportunities to see many species of birds, animals flora and fauna are abundant, we can even let you sit in one of our hides to watch badgers playing at night.
PICNIC HORSEBACK RIDES can be organised and the views from the top of the farm are stunning.
You will receive a welcome pack on your arrival to the cottage, including complementary eggs from our free range chickens and lots of information about the farm, including walking routes.
Whilst you are with us, you have access to our own loch where you can FLY FISH . Ride one of our HIGHLAND PONIES or HELP OUT ON THE FARM. DURING EASTER WE ARE OFFERING WORK EXPERIENCES OF LAMBING SHEEP.

The Dumfries and Galloway region
There's a surprise at every turn in Dumfries & Galloway, from discovering inspirational art on a forest walk to getting surprisingly close to red kites and red deer as you explore.
The rugged coastline, sandy beaches and tranquil lochs all look even more stunning as the region basks in glorious sunshine, and the longer days give more time for exploring this wonderful corner of Scotland.
Picture yourself with a loved one, sharing a glorious walk along a quiet beach or sharing a tranquil stroll through a forest. Let the stresses of life melt away as you wander through sweet scented gardens full of exotic plants or cycle along quiet country lanes admiring our glorious scenery.
The Royal Burgh of Annan has a population of approximately 10,000.It is situated on the coast line and is the principal town of Annandale & Eskdale and the third largest in Dumfries & Galloway.
