About The Moat House Annan

Everything a family with disabled members or friends might need away from home... 

We know all too well from our own experience 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 that you normally just can't find owing to the lack of facilities that are essential for you. The quintessential location for you to take that well deserved holiday or short break.
We've turned an historic building (c. early 19th Century) in an interesting location into a unique, spacious holiday home with superlative facilities whilst maintaining a lovely  'look and feel'. Using bright and daring colours in a sympathetic way with the architectural features of the house we think that we've created a space that is functional, interesting and totally "non-clinical".
Designed with disabled people in mind, whether you or a family member or friend uses a wheelchair, has reduced mobility, difficulty getting upstairs or needs assistance with everyday tasks - The Moat House is uniquely equipped to make your stay that much easier!
Of course, totally able-bodied groups are just as welcome to enjoy a holiday here too!
