Why stay here ...

CL of the Year Award 2017 - Regional Runner Up

Moss-side Farm C.L. is part of a working farm and is approximately 1/2 acre in size. A friendly welcome is guaranteed from the owners Jim and Lilly Broatch. All pitches are hard standing with hook up and individual water supply, over looking a large lawned area. T.V. reception is excellent.

Stunning views across the Solway to the Cumbrian Hills await you in the south while Criffel dominates the Western view. The Solway foreshore is 50 metres away and is a conservation area noted for Natterjack Toads and the variety of sea birds. We breed our own Highland and Belted Galloway cattle and have meat for sale as well as free range eggs. This is a quiet, peaceful, relaxing location with little night light pollution. There are many attractions locally and further afield to cater for all tastes..

We are situated beside the National Cycle Route 7 with mountain biking trails to be found in Maybe Forest. The Burns Heritage Trail is readily accessed as is the National Savings and Devils Porridge museums. Carelaveroc Nature Reserve is a must for bird watchers. There are many villages in and around Dumfries and on the Solway coast to visit and explore while further afield are Castle Douglas, Lockerbie, Moffat and Carlisle. Annan Distillerythere is nearby and for shopping ther is the Gretna Outlet Centre.

Please note:

Do not follow sat nav once on moss road but take the SECOND LEFT for entry to the site.

What a gem !

Moss-side Farm
Arrived along the single track lane wondering where we would end up. What a surprise to be only yards from the banks of Solway Firth. Level hardstandings with own water and views to die for. Very clean and tidy. Has a shower and toilet which we were not expecting. Has shop with odds and ends and honesty box. Next door holiday park has great restaurant/cafe by easy access along the beach. Local museum called 'Devils Porridge' well worth visiting - its not what you think. Great CL all round.

A PERFECT STOPOVER ON OUR SCOTTISH TOUR

Moss-side Farm
I couldn’t have picked a more perfect CL to stop at in the area. We had a very warm welcome and the site was absolutely spotless with stunning views. It was sunny and I hadn’t realised how close we were to the beach (an unusual beach and a long walk to the waters edge but lovely to have it all so close). The site accepts dogs but they must be kept on a lead. There is a beautifully mown grass area that you look out on and the sea is in the distance. It was so quiet and peaceful. Just one toilet and shower but that was fine. I wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend it. Thank you,

Glossie

Moss Side Farm Annan

Moss-side Farm
Approached via a single track road this working farm is easy to find and access the CL ‘parking areas’, we arrived late on the 6th may and stayed for two nights. So first of all, would we stay again? Absolutely, this is a quiet spot and very tranquil, the firth is a matter of a hundred yds or so away with views across to Cumbria, good facilities in terms of EHU and water but couldn't find the waste water drain, which didn't matter for a two day stay. We visited Gretna Gateway for an hour or two which gets rid of the retail therapy urge and supports the local economy. As we are still in the pandemic restrictions we couldnt buy anything from the farm itself which was a shame but hey ho! Be aware local roads are single track and as can be expected can be tight when meeting tractors/wagons on the way out (or in) In summary, lovely site, and will be back!

Never changes.

Moss-side Farm
Our 2nd time at the great little site. Sadly no jam this time. We arrived about an hour before a storm set in and a very rocky night followed. Took the chance to go to the outlet shops at Gretna Green and discovered the Cadbury outlet. Be warned, its cheaper to buy from the supermarkets! Not much else to add to whats already been written by others. The couple who manage the site are fantastic and a font of knowledge. We extended our stay after Boris announced the current lockdown and will be back again.

Friendly CL at Annan

Moss-side Farm
We had a 2 night stopover at this CL. All 5 pitches are on hardstanding. There were 5 vans including ourselves and 3 of them had awnings up so there should be no problem there. Pitches might be too close for some people but as we were in the end pitch and not putting an awning up we could stretch so didn't pose a problem to us. Something to bear in mind though. All pitches back on to one of the steel barn walls and face south looking out across the Solway firth to the Northern Lake District in the distance. Elsan and waste water goes down the same plug hole. there is a water tap on each pitch. Shower and toilets normally open bu this is Covid time so can't comment. I understand that there is also a washing machine for rent. Dog walkers have the sands of the Solway to walk on at low tide. The N7 cycle route passes in front of the CL. The main problem might be access as the road in doesn't have any passing places and does have the odd pot hole to contend with. On the plus side is the lack of traffic that uses the road. Annan is 4 miles away with an Aldi and Tesco and an array of small shops. The A75 that runs west to east across Dumfries and Galloway can be accessed nearby. We'd stop again for an en route stopover. Very pleasant owners who have a small shop for baked goods and chutneys etc. with proceeds going to NHS.
