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.

Do not arrive before 1pm as there are no passing places on the 1/2 mile aproach single track road.

Moss Side Farm Annan

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.

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

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.

Little gem of a site with lovely views

Stayed one night on our way to mull of Galloway and again on our way home. What a lovely little site. We were greeted on arrival, and the home made chilli jam we purchased in the site shop, was delicious.....we will be back. Phil and Betty

little bit of heaven very peaceful.

Just booked again been twice . all hard standing . shower and toilet very. lending books games and local info. views of the Solway & lake district. Walk along the beach which is only 50 meters away . rode my mountain bike on the sands for 3 miles in total tranquillity. Annan ok for food shopping. Annan distillery is very interesting but not cheap. it is worth a visit though. Little museum to the first penny bank is cute . Calaverock castle and RSPB. well worth visiting also. loads of quiet roads to cycle or walk. ( Not suitable for bathing paddling is ok but beware of the tide it can be fast.)
