  • “We enjoyed our stay and would recommend for a large group of 10 as we were.”

    However we felt there were a few areas to improve on.

    However we felt there were a few areas to improve on. On arrival bathrooms weren't as clean as would have been expected especially in Covid times, the flat surfaces were dusty and baths/showers didn't look clean, a dead spider in one was there to greet us. Showers couldn't be used at same time as ran cold and the shower in Room 5 drained very slowly. The kitchen was a good size for large group cooking however there wasn't enough kitchen utensils, especially any large serving spoons.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have checked and ensured the shower is working well. We will address the cleaning issue, have replaced the silicone around the shower and checked water is flowing as it should be. We will be carrying out a full infantry of the kitchen. Kind regards Property Owner

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.
