The property

Boasting a rural positon on the outskirts of the bustling town of Longtown is this romantic hideaway, The Chard.

This wonderful escape to the country is ideal for a couple seeking to explore the four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as the picturesque border of Scotland.

Spend your evenings within the open-plan living room which comes with everything you could possibly need during your break, as well as mood-lighting to ensure a tranquil setting to unwind with your partner after an action-packed day.

Rustle up tasty treats within the compact kitchen and pop open a bottle of fizz to enjoy at the quaint dining space whilst planning the days ahead.

Choose to spend your evening curled up on the plush sofa and tune into the TV, or enjoy a refreshing drink in the summer months upon the decked area which overlooks the pond before dipping into the bubbling hot tub to soak up your surroundings further.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to the night’s embrace to the plush double bed, boasting quality linens and a well-appointed en-suite shower.

As you wake up, look forward to opening up the bi-folding doors to enjoy your morning coffee on the decking before roaming the lawn and admiring the pond.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a short car journey will bring you to Longtown where you will find a superb selection of amenities, whilst Gretna Green lies slightly further afield and promises to complete your romantic trip with its Blacksmiths Shop which is now a stylish restaurant and shopping arcade.

Alternatively, brush up on the local history by spending time within the city of Carlisle where you can discover its 12th century fortress, the medieval cathedral and the superb Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, or head to the famous landmark of Hadrian's Wall.

If you are feeling active, look forward to exploring the magnitude of walks within the surrounding areas, including Solway Coast, Lake district national park, Northumberland National Park and the North Pennines.

The Chard is an outstanding base for exploring the delights that this part of the country has to offer.

The Chard is one of a group of properties which may be booked together to sleep up to 10 people.
Ideal for groups of friends who like to holiday together with the benefit of individual private facilities.

About the location


Gretna Green 7.7 miles; Carlisle 8.5 miles; Brampton 11 miles; Dumfries 27.5 miles

A delightful, well-stocked town in northern Cumbria that runs alongside the River Esk. Longtown is a fantastic base for a holiday as it comes in the centre of four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including Solway Coast AONB, the Northumberland National Park, North Pennines AONB and the Lake District National Park.The local area offers a pleasant range of shops, pubs and restaurants for you to choose from. There are some beautiful places nearby, offering even more places to go and things to do. Brampton and Carlisle are nearby with beautiful buildings. As Longtown is so close to Scotland, it would be rude not to visit Dumfries and Galloway. Edinburgh and Glasgow are just over an hours drive away.
