The
Experience

This comfortable self-contained flat has books for rainy days and detailed local info for explorers. Good walking routes can be joined on foot from the door and there are local gin and whisky distilleries to visit.

Lucinda likes to cook. Breakfast is brought to your living room: a full English of local produce with eggs from the garden hens – she’ll cook dinner too if you ask, or you can opt to fend for yourself in the neat kitchen.

Many guests break their journey north here, but if you’re staying longer it’s all about enjoying the great outdoors – and you can organise fishing on the river.

Location

The neighbourhood

Your setting is bracingly rural, overlooking the river Annan, in a well-tended mature garden surrounded by parkland, all of which guests are welcome to roam. The Annandale and St Kentigern’s Way are within walking distance and the distilleries for Annandale Whisky and Dalton Gin are near. A five-mile drive puts you in Annan or Lockerbie for shops and eateries, with the M74 and A75 close.

Local points of interest from Lucinda Morgan

  • We are in a beautiful rural location with fabulous walks around the farm for guests to enjoy. Our small, tame flock of Black Welsh Mountain sheep, herd of Dexter cows or horses graze the surrounding fields.
  • For the more adventurous walkers in a 10 minute walk you can join the wonderful Annandale Way footpath which follows the river Annan, if you are lucky you can see otters, king fishers and much more along the beautiful wooded banks.
  • If you come to Knockhill in early spring our snowdrops are fantastic, late spring/early summer the collection of Azaleas as you approach the house greet you with their bright, fiery colours and beautiful scent.
  • The Solway Firth is a 10 minute drive, there you will find awesome views over to the Lake District and can enjoy the wonderful bird life.

Introducing

Lucinda Morgan

Lucinda is a talented artist specialising in animal portraiture – spot examples of her work in the flat. Her husband Ran was an amateur jockey and their love of animals is clear – their two children are growing up in the company of five horses, two friendly lurchers, a farm cat and a host of chickens. Ran’s mother still lives in the grounds where she continues to make Morgan Bellows.
