  • "We had a wonderful weekend at Berryburn."

    It was perfect for our group of 10 adults and two children who loved the garden and games room. The welcome gift of wine, chocolates and biscuits was really appreciated. The house was very comfortable and had a real home from home feel. Everything we needed was provided. We had a barbecue on one evening and it was the perfect setting. Thank you

    Dear Michele, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay - and thank you for choosing Berryburn on such a special occasion. Take care Bradley Property Owner

  • "It was a really great house with good amenities."

    The traditional style was nice; it's a very beautiful house and gardens. The added touch of the fruit, chocolates & bottle of wine was appreciated! Communication was good with the owner. Very few negatives, perhaps having some extra tea towels? Overall a fantastic stay.

    Thank you Carina for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. Property Owner

    The gardens were well-kept and, as the weather was kind to us, we were able to enjoy eating and drinking al fresco. I would definitely recommend Berryburn to anyone attending a wedding nearby - it was perfect.

    Thank you Susan for a fantastic review, and for being perfect guests. Regards Bradley Property Owner

  • "We (6 adults and 5 children) had a most enjoyable week at Berryburn."

    The children enjoyed the freedom which the well kept outdoor space provided. The house was one of the best equipped and comfortable holiday houses we have stayed in (our 11th). Berryburn had a traditional homely atmosphere and our welcoming gifts were enjoyed by everyone. We appreciated the fact that the owner contacted us prior to our visit with some extra helpful pieces of information.

    Thank you Margaret for a great review. And thank you for being wonderful guests. Take care Bradley Property Owner

  • "On arrival looking at the property and surroundings we were overwhelmed, it was beautiful."

    On entering the property we found it to be very cold and some rooms we were unable to use as didn't warm up throughout the week. Downstairs rooms all had fires. Disappointed with the kitchen space as normally that would be our hub, but had to use the dining room which was lovely in the evening but very formal!! It was clean and well equipped. There was a pub a few minutes away which was lovely and served good food, however not lit up at night so definitely need torches and was very muddy. I did contact the owner due to a problem we experienced and he was very understanding. In warmer weather it would be idyllic

    Thank you for your comments Patricia, I'm sorry the house didn't quite meet your expectations. I will always try to improve my guests experience...where practically possible. Property Owner

    Very peaceful setting. Lot's of amenities and a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were large and many were ensuite. If you are looking for a place to host a large family gathering this is it. Pack a torch and wellies if you want to have a nighttime walk though

    Communication with owner Bradley was excellent both before and after the stay. Many positives we could share but probably most fitting is to say this was our first visit to Berryburn and within 24 hours of leaving, we had booked our return for the summer!

  • "We had a lovely weekend at Berryburn."

    The house has been beautifully restored and is really well equipped with plenty of toys and games for our grandchildren. We all enjoyed the beautiful gardens and loved watching the wildlife in the surrounding countryside. It was lovely to relax in the evenings round the large dining table, then by the fire in the lounge. I would suggest that the back staircase needs a gate, as its not suitable for toddlers.

    The house has a lived in feeling and you feel relaxed from when you step in the front door and it was great for the six grand kids ,between the games room packed with games and the outside space for the kids to run about and play on the swings and play football on the lawn , a wooden playhouse in the bottom garden also equipped with outdoor toys for the kids. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need especially as we were a party of 10 adults and six grand children.The dining room was a great room for us all to sit ,eat and have a breather and a few drinks . The main sitting room was big enough for all the adults to relax when the kids eventually got to bed . Overall we had great couple of days away in a comfortable period house and the owner could not do enough for us and was on the other end of the phone for any queries. Overall great place to stay for a family get together in a lovely setting and lovely to watch the rabbits on the lawn. Bradley has thought of everything to cater for everyone’s needs adults and children alike even placing bowls of apples in various rooms throughout the house which were delicious by the way!

    Lots of lovely rooms and great dining room to share family meals. We tried a barbecue one evening but it was windy and so moved into the house. The host was readily available and helpful. The Station pub was nearby and we walked- food was very good and we had preordered for the Sunday evening. Our other recommendation for eating out was The Crown and Thistle at Rockcliffe. Lots to see in the area.

    Very well equipped inside and out! We were a group of kids 4/6 up to 75 year olds and 2 large dogs. The kids loved the play areas outside and the games in the play room and snug. We had many great nights around the massive dinning room table finishing with a few drinks in the sitting room with its very welcoming log fire. Brendan was great, answering any queries we had very promptly. We were very lucky with the weather with beautiful sun rises and sunsets with not a cloud in the sky, even though it was only about 5 degrees we sat out on the lawn looking over the farm land watching a rabbit or two with a Prosecco or two! Can not praise this property highly enough.

    The barbeque was great too. The bedrooms had en suite bathrooms or access to an adjacent bathroom. The location is handy for the newly refurbished Station pub which does good pub food. We visited Birdoswald on Hadrians wall an the grandchildren loved dressing up in Roman costumes. We also visited the Tullie museum in Carlisle, well worth a visit and easy parking in the castle car park. The castle at Caerolock was good too. Managed to get in a bit of carp fishing near Annan.
