About this location

The Dumfries and Galloway region

Dumfries and Galloway offers everything you could possibly wish for, there are market towns Annan 5 miles, Castle Douglas Kirkudbright Thornhill, to name but a few are all within easy reach. Golf Courses at Lockerbie, Annan and Dumfries are all well worth a visit. Childrens play parks activity centres Cycling at Ae Forrest are all within 30 minutes of Grey Craig and of course Gretna Green is only 10 miles away. Hadrian's Wall and Carlisle Castle are 30 minutes south on the M74. Nature reserves at Carlaverloch on the Solway Coast are a haven for wading birds any time of the year. But right on your door step is Williamwood Farm, where we have been awards "Nature in farming" award from the RSPB for Scotland so there is loads to see and do without travelling anywhere.


The area is diverse in that you can be in rolling farmland one minute and on the Solway Coast the next. Travelling not that far and you are into scenic hills and moorlands, castles and historic houses. It is fair to say that there is a place for you and your interest here at Williamwood Farm.

"Great Place"

What a great place this is with 4 cottages to choose from and walks around the farm.We stayed in grey craig which is just on the edge of the farm. this cottage has just been completed and looks great.… More

So sorry to hear that you found the bed uncomfortable, we would have provided a mattress topper in a flash if you had only said. The lorries are only temporary as you say and week-ends are very quiet as the lorries do not work then, but there is triple glazing along the outside walls so they are not intrusive.
Kindest regards.
