The bedroom hosts a king-size bed and is tastefully decorated in a purple and white colour scheme, whilst providing picturesque views of the surrounding fields and countryside to remind you of the idyllic location each morning.

Outside is a lawned front garden and the peaceful River Lyne which can be fished on.

Longtown offers some convenient amenities including a family pub, a wine bar, sports bar, café and a supermarket to pick up any essentials.

Travel south and you can access to two National Parks; the Lake District and North Pennines, which are a real haven for walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts.

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.
