  • "Such a relaxing little getaway!"

    Thank you so much for having us, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The hot tub was fabulous and the beautiful countryside was so calming. IF we had to be super picky some of the photos of the outside could do with updating as unfortunately, there was no outdoor shower as in the pictures on the website. Would 100% recommend, the hosts were super lovely too, can't wait to be back!!!

    Had a great time when we stayed and very welcoming only a minor thing was the fridge was a bit small and was freezing the contents

  • "The first thing we noticed was that the Pod had been moved from it's original site on the photo."

    The site it was now situation on was enclosed with fencing which made it very private which was great however, it didn't have the shower outside which could be used to shower before and after using the Hot tub. The step into the hot tub was very unstable when getting in and out. This was probably due to the slate covering the whole surface being uneven. The Pod itself was lovely, my only criticism was that the way it was facing had no light into the living area at all. We had to put lights on all day and it still wasn't very bright. The bedroom which had a dividing wall was beautiful and light all day because it had a sky light letting the light in. The property was nice and clean and well equipped.

  • "Lovely setting, private and peaceful."

    It is a 'micro' lodge so be prepared for the lack of room, however, it is well equipped with crockery, utensils, tea towels, towels, washing up liquid, etc. There is a single cooking plate but would have been better getting rid of the useless breakfast bar and rejigging to fit in a proper hob. With this in mind you have to be organised with what you're doing for meals. The nearest shop is a drive away or eat out. The bed was comfortable, so looking at past reviews they have addressed this with a mattress topper. The hot tub is now fully enclosed and private, although they have given in to putting a roof over it which, for me, spoilt the experience of gazing up to the stars. My only real beef throughout the stay was the lack of WiFi, (there is wifi but you can't connect to it at all), not to sit endlessly on my phone, enjoyed the break from it, but to not have emergency contact with children if needed was a big negative.

    We met the owners and they were both lovely and very welcoming to us, I would recommend this place to anybody, it was lovely.

  • "We had a great time at reflection great location, just a few tweeks to this cabin would take it from very good to amazing ."

    . a new mattress is badly needed as it is so worn the springs jag through lol and maybe some blinds on the french doors to stop the light coming in morning, and possibly even the slightest bit of wifi would be ideal , ut other than these minor things its an amazing cabin with great facilities and a perfect location its rural enough for peace and quiet but a 20 min drive from the town centre we will definitely visit again thanks

  • "Me and my husband stayed for 3 nights."

    Amazing micro-cabin. Very clean and tidy. It is smaller than it looks on the pictures, we wasn't able to use the 'breakfast bar' as a small fridge in now under it. I think that area would be better used as storage and a fold down table be located under the TV as there is a storage box shelf there. Private hot tub is now completely screened off and a chimney with firewood provided. The grounds are large and you're free to walk around, and you walk out thr drive and go on some beautiful walks. As you arrive the property it can be felt that you're in someones back garden, however the grounds are so large you can completely relax and not see anyone after arrival. The owners Trevor and Danielle were fantastic and went through everything when we arrived. An added bonus they have 2 beautiful dogs that are friends and love a cuddle. If you are extremely tall or require any additional room as this is a micro cabin you may not be as comfortable as this beautiful cabin can provide. Would highly recommend staying here.

    Had an amazing few days relaxing in the hot tub, going for country walks and snuggling up in the evening with a film. The reflection is a lovely little cosy home from home and had everything you would need for a break away. Whilst there we also enjoyed a day out to Carlisle and a trip to Gretna Green which are both nearby. Would definitely recommend!

    First impressions… wow. Beautiful setting/scenery. The property is set above a beck, just sat outside listening to the water was so calming and relaxing. Hot tub was ready for us on arrival. Complementary bottle of fizz! The owners were so welcoming and friendly. River Esk 30 minute walk which is beautiful! We also visited Gretna Green which was only 10 minutes drive away. All in all very enjoyable stay. Zero signal though but we actually enjoyed switching off.

    What a beautiful unique place! So tidy and cosy! Yeah its on the small side but it's not supposed to be a huge mansion, it was just right! Trevor and Danielle are so lovely and welcoming! We even had a little gift of a bottle of bubbly which was a lovely touch! The beds are super comfy, best few nights sleep we've ever had! I know people say they look forward to their own bed but honestly we miss this bed! The hot tub was heated for our arrival and it was amazing sat in the hot tub on the night looking into the beautiful night sky! There's no signal and poor Internet connection but we didn't care, we was there to enjoy each others company and to take in the surroundings! There was coffee, milk and sugar available for us and also hot chocolate and marshmallows to enjoy by the chimnea. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we couldn't recommend 'reflection' enough! And we definitely want to stay again! Thank you for an amazing and memorable honeymoon!

  • "The property was lovely for a short stay, due to its size we wouldn’t have wanted to stay longer than three nights."

    It would have been better if the portable hob provided had two rings rather than just one, although there is not much room to cook anyway. We loved the hot tub and the chiminea and the little details like the outside lights. We didn’t use the decking as it was a bit green (some is expected due to the area but it did look like it hadn’t been cleaned for a while). The wifi didn’t reach Refelction, however this wasn’t a massive deal for us as we were looking for a bit of a break from the outside world. Overall we had a really lovely stay, it was comfortable and in a beautiful setting which is what we wanted.

    Very clean and had everything we needed. Would have been better if there was a cover over the hot tub as it was very windy and cold. Also there is no blind on the french doors so it didn’t feel private as you could see the bed from outside.

    Just 2 minute drive in to Longtown and 15 minutes from Carlisle. Would highly recommend this place if you are a couple looking for a peaceful break. Hot tub, chimenea, river on your doorstep, very private setting! Pubs and places to eat not far away at all. Tip: Jump on the train and head to Edinburgh if you want to mix things up a bit. The only reason I have marked down 1 on comfort is purely due to the fact that the bed wasn't very comfortable, could maybe do with a new mattress :) But as i said before, me and my partner would very highly recommend this place, brilliant!

Longtown itself although not exactly walking distance is not particularly pleasant, but if you're prepared to drive or get a cab then there are plenty of other places to go......
