Williamwood Farm Country Cottages

Williamwood Farm Country Cottages

 

Your Home from Home…..

Welcome to Williamwood, one of the best kept secrets in Dumfries & Galloway.

On arrival probably the first thing you’ll notice is the long drive in and the magnificent hedges on either side. Next, you may notice the exceptional numbers of birds which fly out of them.  Welcome – you’ve arrived at Williamwood, where farming and nature go hand-in-hand and provide a wonderfully expansive setting for your stay.

Our three cottages are unique and very different.     All have a common theme, comfort and tranquility.      Beckhead is a nature paradise, Williamwood a real family cottage with a BBQ hut and Greycraig a couples retreat with hot tub and lovely garden.

We work  hard to keep our cottages to a high standard  and to foster an environment which allows you to relax in comfort; and to explore the wonders of nature, if you wish, with or without your camera. Most of our visitors take away lots of photographs as well as happy memories.  We hope you will too.

We offer our guests, the chance to experience the peace and tranquility of our woodlands, our walks, and our wide open spaces and our loch.
Farm tours, afternoon teas delivered to your cottage, experiences you will never forget if you get up close and personal to some of our animals.
Williamwood is a wildlife watchers paradise. We have hides for you to watch the badgers, roe deer foxes and if your lucky otters. Cameras feeding all the live action to your cottage TV’s, but if walking and photography are your passion, you will not be disappointed.

Watch this space for our new experience offerings.

Everything from frog hunting and pond dipping for the kids to a teddysheep picnic.

One  dog is welcome in Grey Craig, Williamwood & Beckhead Cottages.

Plan Your Trip

Broom Fisheries

Welcome to Broom Fisheries, home to Scotland’s leading coarse fishing lakes and waters, nestled away in a quiet, picturesque corner of South West Scotland.

You’ll find us at Newbie, two miles from the nearby market town of Annan in beautiful Dumfries & Galloway, and less than 25 miles from Carlisle.

Fishing at Broom

Coarse fishing is a growing sporting activity in Scotland, and we have 9 fully stocked lakes here at Broom Fisheries, including a purpose built canal, that make us famous for the quality and variety of course fishing that we offer, attracting keen anglers for leisure and competition fishing alike.

We are hoping that by providing a range of excellent facilities to visitors and tourists, Broom Fisheries will continue to build on the hard work of Scotland’s coarse fishing community and increase interest in coarse angling across Scotland and the rest of the UK.

Situated within easy access of the M6 and M74, Broom Fisheries’ peaceful and natural environment attracts regular anglers from all over the country.

Welcome to Annandale Distillery and Visitor Centre

Established in 1836, we’re one of Scotland’s oldest operating distilleries.

Located close to the Scotland-England border, we’re also the first (and last) distillery in Scotland.

Whilst in the ownership of the famous Johnnie Walker, Annandale Distillery closed in 1918, seemingly forever.

Not so!

Rescued by David Thomson & Teresa Church in 2007, this once derelict distillery sprang back into life on November 3rd, 2014
Three years later, on Wednesday November 15th, 2017, we filled the first ‘new era’ bottle of Annandale Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

It’s a beautiful place! Come and visit us, take a tour, sip our stunning peated and unpeated whiskies and taste our delicious food. We promise you a warm Scottish welcome.
Whisky by the nip, the bottle or the barrel.
