Waterside House (Bed and Breakfast) :

Waterside is a large country house built in 1840, set on a wooded hillside with 12 acres of gardens and woodlands and a private stretch of the Moffat Water river. You may relax in the gardens where Burns composed his poems, or visit the peaceful countryside around Moffat.

The house is tastefully decorated throughout, offering visitors accommodation in two Double and one Twin Bedrooms upstairs and one Twin roomed down floor Bedroom. Private facilities are available. A traditional Scottish breakfast is served.

Waterside is well known in the area for its Peacocks, there are also Geese, Ducks, Hens (eggs fresh for your breakfast), two Donkeys, a Dog and a Cat. For this reason we regret that we cannot accommodate any pets. A NO SMOKING rule also has to be kept to.
