PLEASE NOTE that during the times that there are government/local restrictions either in the locale/area/region or country in which guests reside or that of this listing: the restrictions in force at that time will apply to any booking. We will endeavour to guide guests at the time of their making a booking but it is also the guests responsibility to keep up to date on the situation pertaining to their specific dates and to advise us accordingly.

Whilst we welcome family celebrations the house is not a "Party Venue" and large rowdy parties are not allowed and will not be tolerated. We do not allow groups of people that would contravene any Covid-19 regulations in place at the time of the dates booked.

At the time of writing regulations are in force in Scotland that might preclude certain groups making or keeping a booking. The Scottish Government website state "If you have booked a holiday during this period then you can still go - but you should only travel with and stay with people from your own or extended household group/bubble". Since some families and extended families/family bubbles are larger than the "Group of 6" regulation it is still fine for those family groups to book and keep their reservation.

Please do not attempt to make a booking if your group does not conform to the regulations likely to be in place for the dates of your stay. Obviously nobody has a crystal ball to see what the regulations might be in the future and you should also feel free to book dates for larger/other group types in the future on the understanding that you may need to postpone your reservation.

About The Moat House

The Moat House Annan is a Georgian era villa built, circa 1800, which has been painstakingly converted into a self catering holiday home that is a delight to spend time in whether one has no disabilities at all or the most complex of needs.

Everything you might need for that perfect trip away from home... 

We know all too well from our own experiences that some "Disabled Friendly" or "Wheelchair Accessible" holiday homes are a far cry from what you might expect...

With this in mind we've done our utmost to make The Moat House the perfect place with all the features and facilities that are essential to you. The quintessential location for you to take that well deserved holiday or short break.

We've turned an historic Georgian period building, in an interesting location, into a unique, spacious holiday home with superlative facilities whilst maintaining a luxurious 'look and feel'. Using bright and daring colours in a sympathetic way, which works with the architectural features of the house, we think that we've created a space that is exhilarating, functional, relaxing and totally "non-clinical".

Designed and built with disability in mind, whether you have reduced mobility, have difficulty getting managing stairs, need assistance with everyday tasks, are a wheelchair user or have complex care needs - The Moat House is uniquely equipped to make your stay so much easier!

Of course, totally able-bodied groups are just as welcome to enjoy a holiday here too!

Waar je zult verblijven

Annan, Dumfries & Galloway, Verenigd Koninkrijk

The Moathouse is right on the edge of Annan town but with easy access to the town centre and local amenities. Go out of the back door and into the park and you are next to the River Annan (meaning slow running) with countryside beyond. The (2 screen) cinema is only a couple of minutes walk away as too is the town centre with it's shops, banks, pubs and restaurants, many of which have disabled access.

Further afield there are many tourist attractions and places of natural beauty and there is a great deal of information on these in The Moathouse, from Tourist Information Offices or on-line.
