Good location for exploring the area. Comfortable room with excellent breakfast. Rooms light and airy, we had a rear room which was very quiet. Very good value for money with a welcoming host. Annan is a lovely friendly small town with plenty of pubs and restaurants.

My only criticism would be the checking in time. We arrived in Annan at mid day but could not check in till 5. We have family in Annan...

We chose this B&B not only because we'd stayed here 12yrs before when it was run by another but because of its location, due to visiting family both in Annan and Carlisle. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owners Tara and David and shown to our room - which was light, airy and very spacious, with everything we...
