The Moat House, Annan, reviewed by John Powell
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair, Mobility Scooter
Moat House lives entirely up to the description on its website. It is brilliantly adapted for even the most disabled people and it sets a standard we have not come across before. We recommend it without reservation of any kind. Highlights of our stay included walking and taking an all-terrain buggy across the sands at Powfoot (but beware the incoming tides), visiting Dumfries to renew childhood memories, walking in the forest of Ae, visiting the Wetland Centre at Caelaverock and the Runic Cross at Ruthwell, going to the splendid small cinema to see live opera from Rome. We did not feel the need to eat out as we so enjoyed sitting as a family eating round the splendid table in the huge kitchen., but we did succumb at lunchtime one day to delicious fish and chips from the Cafe Royal. Our one regret was that the weather did not allow us to use the splendid barbecue facilities on the terrace. All in all a memorable holiday.
Transport & Parking
We parked on the pavement outside the Moat House and this was satisfactory.
No problem at all.
Bathroom was splendidly equipped including an X-Y ceiling hoist and a Closomat.
Martin was very helpful even when we shut ourselves out one night! There was no resident staff and no need for it anyway
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We would certainly visit again if our situation allows us to.
