  • Bank cottage is not just a Airbnb stay it is a beautiful homely (dog friendly) place to stay. We didn’t want to leave! From the moment you step into bank cottage, it’s everything and more you imagine from the pictures. Kirsty and Mayur have really thought of all the little details which makes the difference from a stay being good to a stay being outstanding! This place deserves the Airbnb LUXE status. This place made us happy because of how Dog friendly It is! from the treats left to making sure Rosie could get on the local bus it just made a huge difference. At the bottom of Banks cottage garden you are on the Solway Firth! Which your dog can safely roam and run free! ( The welcome pack) Kirsty and Mayur send to you, gives you all the information you will need to make your stay brilliant! .. The village pub (The kings Arms) is very welcoming, cosy with an open fire and dog friendly. We also as Kirsty and Mayur suggested got a Sainsbury’s online shop delivered to the cottage( would highly recommend this) as The village is very remote. I could go on writing how great this place is. But I would say book and stay you will not be disappointed! We will be back in the near future! Thank you Kirsty and Mayur for sharing your beautiful home.

    Our charming shepherds' huts sit in the old orchard of our farm in the village of Bowness on Solway, Cumbria. The site is named 'The Garrison' as it sits on the remains of the former Roman fort of Maia, a world heritage site at the end of Hadrian's Wall. Bowness itself is in an area of outstanding natural beauty sitting on the Solway Estuary which separates England from South West Scotland. We are 40 minutes from the Lake District and 20 minutes from the historic city of Carlisle.
    Our quirky huts are rustic but include all modern amenities. This is glamping with a difference, kick back in our garden space, light the chimenea, open the wine and relax on the site of the second largest fort on the Roman Wall. Walk in the steps of the soldiers from the Roman cavalry stationed in this farthest outpost of the Empire. If it gets chilly you can return to your hut, light the wood burning stove, pop on the kettle and plan your next day's adventure. There are many nature reserves in the local area and all within walking distance. If you have your own transport why not visit the Victorian seaside resort of Silloth with its award winning golf course and sandy beaches. Have a day in Carlisle and visit its castle, cathedral, museum or go to Keswick and sample the beauty of the Lake District and maybe scale a fell or two!
  • Great stay after our walk along Hadrian’s Wall. Very welcoming hosts! The place is clean, has everything it needs and is very cosy with the small fire. Pub just around the corner. Would recommend this place for sure!

    Tjitske2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepherd's hut was fantastic - kitted out with everything you would need for your stay. Great hosts - Stella was so helpful in the run-up to the stay and Ian was very friendly and helpful, including giving me a lift from Carlisle. Cute little chickens running around outside and lots of amenities including the gym! Highly recommended.

    Naomi2019-10-19T00:00:00Z

    Bowness-on-Solway, England, United Kingdom

    Lovely large cottage on the Hadrians wall trail. Located just 12 miles from Carlisle and Wigton and less than 10 miles from the Carlisle bypass. Approx 25 minutes to J44 M6. This is a dedicated holiday let and is newly refurbished with a large social living and dining area. There are 3 bathrooms, 1 downstairs, one family bathroom, and one ensuite. The cottage is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest on the Hadrian's wall trail.
    This is a large cottage with plenty of space for 6 guests and modern amenities to make your stay very comfortable. The cottage has full gas central heating and a fantastic pot bellied stove with all coal and wood supplied for your stay. The kitchen is a great social space for family and friends alike. There is a private garden with parking. There is also parking in front of the cottage so your stay can accommodate 2 cars if needed.
    The village is an old port and railway town. It has a rich history and with the location is an outstanding place to live and visit. There are lovely walks and plenty to do near by. Visiting Carlisle is a short journey away, and so is the lake district and all the attractions it boasts. There are 2 local pubs serving food. One in the village itself under new management, and one in Bowness on Solway about a mile after the village. The nearest shop is on the holiday park 1/2 a mile before the village, it's open in the mornings 7 days a week and sells newspapers cigarettes alcohol and basic provisions. There is a larger local store in Kirkbride combining a post office, the local doctors is also in Kirkbride. If you need to do larger shopping and you are driving then you pass Asda from the motorway heading towards the cottage.
  • The Cottage on Hadrian's Wall is lovely, clean and very homely. A credit to the host Joe and his family. The pot belly fire was very welcomed and lovely and warm. Communication was very easy and host was available to assist when required. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a comfortable stay away from home. The community was very welcoming, we stayed for three nights.

    Judi2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Just wow! Thanks so much for a lovely stay in your lovely cottage. I couldn't fault anything. What a lucky find! Your thoughtful touches really made it for us! Handwash, milk in the fridge, tips of where to go.... It was immaculately clean! It was quiet. We loved the fire, and you even thought to bring extra coal, which we appreciated! Very cosy and warm, despite Storm Dennis raging outside. Everything was perfect, and we hope to book again on our way to Scotland later this year.

    Beatrice2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic find. Spotlessly clean, cosy and well equipped. Joe was a great host. We had a relaxing stay at the cottage.

  • Thank you Joe for a wonderful stay. The cottage was perfect. Everything was sparkling clean, comfortable & lots of lovely touches. The fire was superb & the place was lovely & warm when we arrived. Joe is a very generous host & a great communicator. Outstanding hospitality. We had a walk at Glasson Moss & Bowness on Solway. The village is interesting to look around & take in all the history & sights. We discovered a delightful tearoom called ‘Pear Tree Tearoom.’ Our one night stay was everything we could have hoped for. Best wishes Jen & Ken

    Jen2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Joe’s place was stunning, it was so clean and tidy. Check in and communication was easy and Joe always responded quickly. We were welcomed with a fire warming the place which was such a nice touch after a long day of driving. Highly recommend if you are traveling here.

  • Lovely, stylish accommodation with welcoming, polite hosts. Relaxed and chilled time away with hot tub made for a great break. Would definitely recommend!

    Sean2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed ad Rory's place over a weekend for quick getaway from city life. We had total 5 people in our group and we had very comfortable stay. The house itself is amazing, very stylish and it has everything available for a relaxing stay. Rory was exceptional host from the start, made sure we're all comfortable. We also made a good use out of Hot Tub witch was great, even tough it was heavily raining it was still great. The house was stocked up with plastic cups witch was convenient go use around hot tub. Definitely recommend staying at Rory's house if you're visiting Lakes/North Pennines as the house is bit out of the area, but given the amenities it's definitely worth to book!

    Dimitri2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Spotlessly clean house with everything you could ask for. The bed was so comfortable and the double rainfall shower was a treat. We enjoyed an evening in the hot tub, relaxing and couldn’t ask for more. We will be back.

    Pammy2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Both Rory and Sam were so attentive. Sam showed us round the house on check in and let us know how to use everything. The house was spotless and beautifully decorated. Couldn’t have stayed anywhere nicer for a nice family weekend in my husbands home town. Will definitely be booking again.

    Jillian2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely space, bright and spacious yet feels cozy and homely. Thoughtful touches of the hot chocolate with marshmallows. The greeting in person to show us where everything is and how everything worked was appreciated when we arrived as we were very tired after our journey. Once again thank you very much Sam and Rory

    Kirsty2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is fantastic and the hosts are really lovely. I would definitely recommend.

  • The Garrison provides an ideal enclave for this little group of four small but perfectly-formed shepherds’ huts situated right in the centre (but tucked away) of the charming village of Bowness on Solway. The hut exceeded our expectation for both cleanliness and amenities. Everything we needed was there; even a hairdryer and tea and coffee. Having a delicious cooked breakfast delivered to the hut was a bonus. The location is perfect for anyone starting/finishing the Hadrian’s Wall walk and the village of Bowness on Solway is steeped in history - mostly Roman - that can be discovered at every turn. We did a shortish (6 miles) circular walk to the Hope and Anchor pub then headed back to the village pub in Bowness for dinner - both had welcoming staff and great food/drink. The on-site shop stocked all the essentials - even doggy ice cream for our Labrador who loved his stay, and meeting the resident chickens! If you thought a shepherd’s hut would be basic, think again, Sian’s Rest was the height of luxury and it had one of the most comfiest beds we have slept in while away from home.

    Ness2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a stunning location. Just what we needed to start our holiday, so peaceful. We were made to feel so welcome and the invitation to have dinner and breakfast in the kitchen, as it was a little cold to eat outside, was really lovely. Great food, great people, great location. We plan to be back. Thank you.

    Lisa2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great rural location, lovely staff, breakfast and shop. The bed was comfy, shower was hit and the chickens are lovely. Highly recommended

    Carly2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Another amazing stay...even better now that breakfast is available in the farmhouse kitchen or at your Shepherd's Hut, home cooked food now being served during the day and a well stocked shop on site selling all the amenities you need and souvenirs of the area and Hadrian's Wall , beach minutes away with beautiful views accross to Dumfries xnd Galloway.....Highly recommended by me 😊

    Tracey2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect. My partner and I stayed here for one night during our Hadrian's Wall cycle. When we arrived Ian showed us around and checked we had everything we needed. The hut was clean and well presented. In the morning we had a fantastic breakfast on the picnic table outside our hut. That breakfast set us up for the next leg of our bike ride. Thank you Stella and Ian.

    Jo2019-07-13T00:00:00Z

At the far west end of the Solway Coast you’ll find the most southern lighthouse in Scotland, which is perched on the edge of a 260 ft high cliff. Truly one of Scotland’s finest panoramic views, on a clear day from the lighthouse you can gaze out across four kingdoms. Admire the Galloway Hills and western islands of Scotland, the Isle of Man, the Cumbrian Fells of England and the Northern Irish coastline. CRIFFEL stands dominant, like a border guard, to the North of Powfoot, looking over the Solway Firth to England. The 360-degree panorama, affords, one of the best views in Scotland. Criffel may be only 569 metres high, but its modest altitude belies its prominence, rising as the highest hill for miles around and dominating the Solway coastline. The ascent is short and steep, with stunning views of the Solway, its estuaries and across to the English Lake District. Dumfries has links with Robert the Bruce and Robert Burns; Gretna Green is the original quickie marriage one stop solution and Eskdalemuir is site of Samye Ling,the first Buddhist monastery in the west, a still thriving community with an impressive Tibetan temple, with a range of courses on offer. Caerlaverock’s Wetlands Centre, close by, is open all year round to show visitors the coastal landscapes and nature during every season. The most famous member of the wild life is the wild flocks of Svalbard, Arctic Ocean, Barnacle Geese between the months of October and April. Caerlaverock Castle, dating from 1270, is situated 5 miles from here, and is one of Scotland's best ruined castles and not to be missed. Also close by, and of historic interest is, the Ruthwell Cross which dates from the 8th century. It's huge at 17 feet and once stood right on the shores of the Solway Firth. Today it's housed in Ruthwell's parish church, within a few miles, from Powfoot. Visit the ancient ruins of Sweetheart Abbey (once a bustling Cistercian order) at New Abbey. The Devil's Porridge, at East Riggs, 5 miles from Powfoot, is an amazing exhibition and tells the story of the Greatest Munitions Factory on earth. During 1915, Britain was losing the Great War through the lack of munitions supplies.

The surrounding areas of Dumfries, particularly south at New Abbey towards the shores of the Solway Firth, hold a number of historic attractions, museums, a farm park and a vast Stately home country park attraction at Drumlanrig near Thornhill. Annandale distillery has now officially re-opened in Annan, which last produced a Lowland Malt 90 years ago. Well worth a visit. The iconic Caul upon the river Nith below the ancient Devorgilla Bridge is of early origin, in Dumfries town centre, known as White Sands. The Dumfries Forest Park covers 300 acres making it the largest and darkest, star gazing, forest park in Scotland, offering a wide range of outdoor activities for visitors. Annan's location on the first fordable part of the Solway Firth has always been of great importance. Because of its position, Annan suffered from many attacks during the Wars of Independence and border reiving. In recognition of the towns resistance and loyalty a Charter was granted to Annan by King James V in 1538. The town's Royal Burgh status was reaffirmed in 1612 by King James VI. Each year the Royal Burgh of Annan celebrates The Riding Of The Marches. Annan Riding of the Marches Day will be held on 1st July 2019, a family day for everyone, with the best of Scotlands marching pipe bands, competing.

  • Comfy cottage few steps from the sea. Nicely furnished with lots of final touches that improved already great experience. Ideal if you want to just relax after a day spent outdoors but also very well equipped if you want to prepare yourself something fancy for a dinner.

    Marian And Zuzana2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very pretty and comfortable wee cottage, very well equipped and pristine but homely. Lovely area with nice walks along the shore. We'll definitely visit again.

Raphaela and Steve could not have been more helpful with Raphaela offering an evening meal, which was not only delicious as was the breakfast, but all completely home made including the sorbet we had for desert. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend .

    A detached cottage set in an elevated position overlooking the Solway and having direct access to a private beach.. Set at the end of a rough track, Waterside Cottage is a real hidden gem, a beautiful, idyllic, charm filled cottage in a private location with its own stretch of beach overlooking the Solway. Once you tear yourself away from playing on the beach, the cottage itself boasts original flagstone floors throughout, is comfortably furnished, with spacious rooms (most of which have stunning, ever changing views) and three wood burners to snuggle up in front of. Ideal for both families and groups of friends, there will be arguments over who gets which of the double rooms; one is very large with a wood burner and patio doors while the other has a double aspect view of the sea from the bed. Looking out to sea, one way you see nothing but the horizon, the other way looks over to Cumbria and you can watch the sun set behind Criffel. To make the most of the fresh coastal air, there are several different seating areas so you can enjoy some al fresco dining while spotting the great range of wildlife. When you feel like exploring away from the cottage, there is plenty to do in the area from paintballing to distillery tours, shopping at Gretna, pubs and cafes in nearby Annan and a host of local museums including the interestingly named Devil’s Porridge Museum which has nothing to do with porridge and is all about the World Wars! Locally, bird lovers can visit the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Caerlaverock Wetland Centre (featured in BBC’s Autumnwatch). There are several excellent golf courses in the area including the championship standard semi links course at Powfoot just a few miles along the coast.

  • We stopped in Raphaela and Steve's lovely cottage for 3 night's it had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean and very stylish. It provided an ample size bedroom, walk in shower room, dining area, a place to cook with all crockery pans and cutlery. There is a lovely sitting area complete with tv. The hosts are lovely people and we definitely recommend a stay here as we will be returning soon. Thank you Raphaela and Steve.

  • This little place is absolutely stunning, what you see is what you get and so much more! The hosts are the sweetest, and actually quite funny if you like that! It was very clean, stylish and cute especially for a couple. In the garden you’ll see some chickens and a decent sized pool which the misses and I swam in. The place isn’t all that far from some of the most famous attractions and all at a decent price. Loved it! Totally recommend. 110%😊

    Bailey2019-06-28T00:00:00Z

The food is great and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Plus a great location for a ride out on quiet roads along the north coast of England. I would certainly recommend!

  • Brilliant! Couldn’t recommend enough! A group of four of us walked the hadrians wall trail from east to west. We arrived and parked the car at the inn and expected to get a bus to Carlisle train station but Colin kindly took us without charge. He then offered to pick up our bags as we walked back through Carlisle. We finished the walk late on a Monday. Colin was there waiting to pick us up and take us back to the inn. They don’t normally serve food on a Monday, however they prepared amazing hot meals for us especially. The inn itself is brilliant with clean, modern rooms! Great breakfast room and bar downstairs. A perfect place to start and finish the trip! Above and beyond service, great people and a lovely Inn. Thank you Colin!

  • 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.

    Yvonne2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, lovely place to stay! Clean and really well equipped. Fab welcome basket and a cupboard full of all the little things you never know whether to take or not - salt and sauce etc.! The hot tub was really good and we were lucky to have two nights of clear sky’s for star gazing! Comfortable beds and proper sized sofas. Wonderfully warm and masses of towels. The only tiny negative - we felt the telly could have done with being a wee bit bigger, but that’s personal choice really!

    Kate2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Tack House Lodge is very spacious, beautifully clean and has great facilities. It is located in a very tranquil location and you must have a car to get around. We travelled into Annan for lunch and went to lots of farm parks about 15mins drive away (holidaying with a 2 year old). Other lodges we have stayed in don't provide anything, but as well as robes for when you come out of the hot tub, lots of fresh towels and basic kitchen staples and cleaning items, you will also be greeted with fresh fruit, prosecco, OJ and milk in the fridge, a lovely hamper with fresh bread, chocolates and shortbread. The space is very child friendly, secure, good WiFi and modern yet country living style. Highly recommend.

    Ashley2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful house and wonderful hosts! A real home from home, the hosts have thought of everything from bread and milk (and procecco!) in the fridge to cards and games. Pictures really don't do this wonderful place justice, so clean and spacious with privacy in the hot tub and outside area. Fantastic working Distillery next door to visit and try a wee dram! Would recommend and return in a heartbeat!

    Suzi2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve just got back from a stay at The Tackroom and have loved every second! The pictures really don’t do the property and the location justice. A completely private hot tub, within great distance to explore Scotland or Northern England, a welcoming host & a sparkling clean house. Every little thing had been thought out from the welcome pack on arrival to the towels, robes & cupboards stocked with cooking equipment. We will definitely be back!! Thanks for a relaxing break away from our hectic city life!

    Amy2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking at this cottage as a place to stay then book it quick. So peaceful and cosy. The space in the cottage is amazing. Lots of homely touches and a little hamper with milk, bread, biscuits and prosecco went down well and saved going out for shopping straight away. The hot tub is so relaxing and the views are lovely. Recommend a visit to the Powfoot Hotel restaurant for food as was recommended by Margaret during our stay the food is divine. Lovely and clean also visit the distillery whilst there and especially go to the maltings cafe on site the food is great the Annandale being my fave. What else can I say other than a lovely break away for my partners birthday glad I found Margaret’s place. Thanks again

  • The cottage is deceptively bigger than in the pictures. It was very clean,roomy and comfortable we went for a break with the kids and it was more than enough room for the 5 of us. The hot tub really topped it off for us as a massive bonus. I very much enjoyed the wonderful views from the tackroom having a keen interest in horses. All the special extra touches were lovely and greatly appreciated. It was my birthday while we were there and arrived to lovely hamper and bottle of prosecco chilling in the fridge.Lovely lady to deal with couldnt have been any more helpful or accommodating. 5 stars for the whole experience. Would also recommed chinese delivery from the local take away as it was delicious.

    Annan, United Kingdom

    The cottage is of a traditional Cumbrian style . Comfortable, clean, and charming but with all your homely needs including a smart TV and free wifi. The cosy sitting-room has a new Clearview woodburner .There is a separate well-equipped kitchen/diner and adishwasher to make life easier.The delightful garden opposite is a sunny and private haven where you can sit and read by day or watch the amazing stars at night.1 well behaved dog by arrangement and small fee.
    This is a place to rest and unwind for a night or two. To Pass through too quickly and you will miss the quirkiness of this little corner of the Northern frontier of the Roman Empire. The Haaf netters fishermen using an ancient an unique netting technique. The road over wide open salt marshes where the sheep and cattle roam freely. The old harbour and dock at "Port". Watching the tide come in and shift the wading birds gently. The friendliness and the dry humour of we nutty Northerners. You wont be sorry.
    Quiet but friendly and once we get talking we like to know what's what. There are quite a few walkers of Hadrian's wall so the pub can sometimes be quite a mix of locals and international visitors. The area is mainly smaller mixed farms with dairy cattle some beef and sheep. You may well meet a tractor or two . The sea air is soporific and the views over the Solway and west at sunset can be breathtakingly beautiful. The lakes can be reached in 35 to40minutes and Cockermouth is a great place to go to Wordsworth s house, Jennings brewery tours with tastings, and more.
  • The other glowing reviews are what made us choose Jo's property and they were borne out by our experience. We were looking for a quiet break over New Year and Rose Cottage provided exactly that. It is a quiet place but with Carlisle only about 25 minutes away by car there are plenty of options to stock up the fridge and freezer. Walks along the Solway Firth can start at the front door - bring Wellingtons, although waterproof walking boots will get you some way - and with the route of Hadrian's wall starting nearby you can definitely get your steps in if that's your focus. The cottage is full of character with with a well equipped kitchen, modern bathroom and comfortable beds. The wood burning stove was high on our list of wants and performed well to quickly make the living room super-warm. Just mind your head when you go up and down the stairs :) A superb trip. Thanks, Jo!

  • This cottage is stunning, a real mix of quaint and modern. It was spotlessly clean, cosy and comfortable. We have stayed in a few cottages and have never known so many amenities, a real home from home! There was even hair straightners for us girls! If you looking for some time out to relax and peace and quiet,then rose cottage will not disappoint, also the hope and anchor pub is less than 5 mins away. Jo and Ian are excellent hosts with great communication. We will definitely return as i didn't want to leave!

Having the separate TV room was handy with children, making it feel more like a separate apartment than simply a B&b room..Child friendly with cot and provided also. Highly recommend this hidden jewel a few miles only from the M6 and Gretna Green.

    Our charming shepherd's huts sit in the old orchard of our farm in the village of Bowness on Solway, Cumbria. The site is named 'The Garrison' as it sits on the remains of the former Roman fort of Maia, a world heritage site at the end of Hadrian's Wall. Bowness itself is in an area of outstanding natural beauty sitting on the Solway Estuary which separates England from South West Scotland. We are 40 minutes from the Lake District and 20 minutes from the historic city of Carlisle.
    Our quirky huts are rustic but include all modern amenities. This is glamping with a difference, kick back in our garden space, light the chimenea , open the wine and relax on the site of the second largest fort on the Roman Wall. Walk in the steps of the soldiers from the Roman cavalry stationed in this farthest outpost of the Empire. If it gets chilly you can return to your hut, light the wood burning stove, pop on the kettle and plan your next day's adventure. There are many nature reserves in the local area and all within walking distance. If you have your own transport why not visit the Victorian seaside resort of Silloth with its award winning golf course and sandy beaches. Have a day in Carlisle and visit its castle, cathedral, museum or go to Keswick and sample the beauty of the Lake District and maybe scale a fell or two!
  • Fantastic stay in this location with friendly communication with the owners throughout, a fantastic breakfast and an all round positive atmosphere . This location has everything you need in one location including food, recreational facilities in the form of a fully kitted out gym, smart TV, WIFI, pub next door and soon to have its own open In the facility it’s self . The owners couldn’t have been more approachable and helpful if they tried we will certainly be back. Also the breakfast cooked in the morning was fantastic, kept us full all the way back to Hampshire!!

    Rhys2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • A quirky, fun place to stay with a very warm welcome to go along with it. Nothing was too much trouble for Ian and he made us feel well looked after. The space is cosy, as you might expect from a shepherds hut, but perfect for our stopover on the way up to Scotland. Great location altho a bit tricky to find (we drove past it!) and perfect for beach walks or Hadrians Wall. We will most definitely return!

    Joanna2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We booked last minute for a short getaway and weren’t really sure what to expect. We were absolutely blown away by the hospitality Stella & Ian showed us.

    Hazel2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Loved my stay in the glamping carts! They are well designed, beautifully decorated and even spatious! Neat experience. Ian was a tremendous host— he made me feel like I was at home and even went out of his way to make my stay a good one. One of the best accommodations during my stay in England.

  • Lovely comfortable clean and we equipped shepherds hut. The gym was a real bonus. No local shop near by but you can get essentials from reception on site. There's also a friendly pub that serves food next door. Great stop off if walking or cycling Hadrian's way.

  • Our Shepherds hut was spotlessly clean and was well kitted out for our needs. Myself and my son were having a well earned break and visiting friends in Carlisle (25 mins away) and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There are four huts and a large, well kitted out gym all in the walled garden of what appears to be an old farmhouse, at present being renovated. The garden is very well maintained and outside each hut are pub garden style bench/tables and wood heaters if you should wish to sit outside. We had a look round the gym and if you’re the type that needs your fitness kick whilst away you’ll love it. There are pristine large showers in the gym block too. There is a pub that does food next door but there are also several villages along the coast whose pubs look equally inviting, we ourselves visited Carlisle and so ate there. There was a small shop about three miles away so I’d probably stop at a supermarket on the way to grab essentials like milk and bread. There is some teabags and coffee and sugar supplied if you should forget them as we did. There is WiFi on site though it did drop in and out a little, which we weren’t too bothered about as it was supposed to be a ‘get away from it all break’ after all ! All in all we were very impressed with the hut and the area is a hidden gem not overly populated, smothered with tourists like some other places. It retains its original quaintness. A good choice we thought.

Further afield there are many tourist attractions and places of natural beauty and there is a great deal of information on these in The Moathouse, from Tourist Information Offices or on-line.
  • You will want for nothing here. If you want a house to rent as a base for a trip but want it feel like your family home look no further.

  • We were a party of 8 on a short golfing trip in the area. The house was perfect for us. Very comfortable, plenty space, lots of equipment and very convenient for shops etc. in the town. The outside area with covered BBQ seating looks great too but due to very wet weather we weren't able to use it.

    Allan2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • We are a large group of adults and children that now struggle to find a place large enough for our annual get together. This place was large enough for us all to have dinner round the table , and on sofas/ beanbags in the lounge. The house was really spacious and the kids enjoyed playing in the garden, especially football on the AstroTurf which was big enough for them to set up a small pitch! Barbeque area would have been lovely if weather was about warmer. The house exceeded our expectations. The location had enough activities to keep is busy for the weekend. We visited a nearby castle with adventure playground and moat,and a small animal farm with an outdoor play centre. A few of us went for a run along the river at the back of the house - part of the Annandale way. At the start if this the play park and football pitches also kept the kids entertained. Would highly recommend.

    Katy2019-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • This property is very well equipped and clean. Non of out party has any mobility issue but we were all very impressed by how adaptable the house is for those who do. The whole house is comfortable, homely and not at all clinical. Would really recommend The Moat House for any type of group.

    Marion2018-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • what a beautiful house! we celebrated with a family get together here for the weekend.Everyone loved it. We ate outside, on the BBQ area, sat on the terrace, laughed over the huge kitchen table, and sang around the piano! We walked along the river Annan, ran round the racetrack in the park, and ran up the motte. The Devil's porridge museum is much improved from the old tin shed affair it used to be, and well worth a visit.Great to have a railway station too, as some of our party arrived by train it was only a ten minute walk to the house.A great time was had by all.

    Ailie2018-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • A great location for exploring Annan and the surrounding area. Close to town but set in a quiet location. A very short walk to the riverside and a great walk along the river bank with a small park and play area including football pitches. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay, great kitchen for socialising with everything you need to prepare meals and enough place settings for 12 easily. Overall I would recommend this as a great place to stay.

    Joe2017-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at The Moat House in Annan. Everything was ideal for our short two night stay, our hosts were very helpful by suggesting restaurants for us to eat at and even left some wine and shortbread for our arrival - a lovely touch. Many thanks.

    Our charming shepherds' huts sit in the old orchard of our farm in the village of Bowness on Solway, Cumbria. The site is named "The Garrison" as it sits on the remains of the former Roman fort of Maia, a world heritage site at the end of Hadrian's Wall. Bowness itself is in an area of outstanding natural beauty sitting on the Solway Estuary which separates England from South West Scotland. We are 40 minutes from the Lake District and 20 minutes from the historic city of Carlisle.
    Our quirky huts are rustic but include all modern amenities. This is glamping with a difference, kick back in our garden space, light the chimenea, open the wine and relax on the site of the second largest fort on the Roman Wall. Walk in the steps of the soldiers from the Roman cavalry stationed in this farthest outpost of the Empire. If it gets chilly you can return to your hut, light the wood burning stove, pop on the kettle and plan your next day's adventure. There are many nature reserves in the local area and all within walking distance. If you have your own transport why not visit the Victorian seaside resort of Silloth with its award winning golf course and sandy beaches. Have a day in Carlisle and visit its castle, cathedral, museum or go to Keswick and sample the beauty of the Lake District and maybe scale a fell or two!
  • Thanks so much for a lovely stop over in Ryan’s Rest. You couldn’t have done anymore for us. Unfortunately the weather was awful but can’t blame you for that! We will definitely return when it’s a bit warmer 💙

    Pete2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • So glad I chose to stay here, great comms and an incredible location. spotlessly clean and completely unique. I get bored travelling on business and staying in houses or apartments. The cabin on wheels was just the change I needed. communication was immediate and helpful. I met Ian the owner on site who told me about everything and there is a state of the art gym on site, literally 15 metres from my cabin which you can use with a fob on your key free of charge. Ian told me about the local pub which I visited and it was delicious. (Ian was at the bar having a pint himself I hope this doesnt get him in trouble with Stella?😊) If I am in Cumbria again I see no need in ever staying anywhere else. fantastic... One last thing the location cannot be beaten beautiful.

    Karl2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepard’s Huts are perfect for walkers starting or finishing the Hadrians Wall walk. Positioned in the centre of Bowness on Solway (next door to the pub!) and within 2 minutes of the start/finish. The huts are well provisioned with a log burner, TV, cooker etc. We would definitely stay here again. Thoroughly recommended. Rob & Jay

    Robert2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment we arrived we were made to feel completely welcome, and taken care of. We were expecting a nice place to stay for some walks but had no idea how friendly and homely it would be. We brought our dog who also had a lovely time. The hut was perfect for us and we honestly wouldn't change anything. Also... Loved being surrounded by the chickens!

    Shelly2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable night spent in one of these quirky shepherd’s huts. They have everything you need and more. Very welcoming hosts, excellent breakfast and overall a very high level of service. If you’re looking for something off the beaten track and a bit different, this place is perfect.

    Richard & Mihika2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed a comfortable and relaxing stay at Ryan's Rest, very welcome after a few days spent walking the Wall. Staff were accommodating and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. The whole place has a lovely friendly atmosphere - especially enjoyed meeting all of the delightful chickens who have free range of the area :) Would like to mention that there is some occasional building noise as renovations are still in progress across the site. Fantastic place to end/start the Hadrian's Wall walk though and would thoroughly recommend.

    Alice Mary2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay in a beautiful hut, everything was spotless and it was so cosy, exactly what we needed for our break away. Nice touches like tea and coffee in the hut from hosts who couldn’t have been any more accommodating, they were wonderful, so helpful and friendly. Great location for Hadrians wall and the Lake District and we can’t wait to organise our next trip back.

    Suzi2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our shepherds hut, really cosy and well equipped. It was a great place to stay before setting off on Hadrians cycleway.

  • Our staying in Colin place was really positive. The place is very clean, the room and the bathroom are very big and comfortable. I recommend this place.

    Luca2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Colin and Steven went out of their way to accommodate us late last night having only made the booking at 9pm and arriving after midnight. We were driving back to London from the Isle of Arran in Scotland and so needed somewhere to rest our heads for the evening, and the room at the Bush Inn was absolutely spot on. Colin waited up for us to arrive despite an early start, showed us around and made us feel very welcome. Then in the morning, before we set off, despite having nothing prepared for breakfast due to our late booking (we were the only ones staying that night) Steven rustled us up a bacon sandwich and a cup of tea, followed by a small packed lunch to take with us on our long drive south. Spectacular hospitality and generosity. So thank you both so much! The Inn itself is also beautiful, quiet and quaint. Highly recommended.

    Sam2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
