Our Area

Dumfries and Galloway is famed for its unspoiled landscapes, exceptionally mild weather, and friendly towns and villages. Although in a rural farming area, at 'the Annexe' you will never be far away from the many pursuits and amenities the region offers.

Large sections of nearby coast are open to the public and there are several places where a dinghy can be launched and sailed within safe coastal waters. Only 5 minutes drive away is an 18 hole coastal 'links' golf-course with driving range, plus sea angling, bird-watching, walking and cycling can all to be had in the immediate neighbourhood.

Our nearest town is Kirkcudbright, about 10 minutes drive along the coast. Kirkcudbright is an attractive and bustling little burgh with a long history - especially its artists' colony, brightly coloured houses, a castle, a working fishing harbour, and an array of mostly family owned shops, restaurants and carry-outs where just about everything you would need for your holiday can be found. In the spring and summer the town hosts a large number of events that can be seen on the Summer Festivities website.
