Standing in the shadow of a 15th century peel tower, a sandstone house which has been created from two cottages and a barn. The house stands 100 yards back from the River Border Esk and looks over beautiful parkland. The area is steeped in history, when it was part of the debatable land, an area between England and Scotland where no rule of law applied until The Act of Union in 1603.

The house and tower are isolated from other dwellings and overlook the lovely Kirkandrews on Esk Church. The property is reached by a 400m long private tarmac drive and there is plenty of parking in the gravelled courtyard. The garden is mainly lawn with some shrubs and trees. . Some fishing in front of the house is available to guests by arrangement . There is a tennis court nearby, which again can be used by arrangement. Well behaved dogs are welcome , but we would prefer them not to go upstairs or be allowed onto beds and chairs. Pool Table, Table Tennis table, Croquet and Badminton

The house is a great place to get away from it all with family or groups of friends. It is ideally situated for exploring The Roman Wall, Historic Carlisle and Gretna Green. Being close to the M6 and A74 means that it does not take long to venture further afield. The Lake District is easily accessible, Ullswater can be reached in forty minutes.Being only half a mile from the Border, you also have the Scottish Borders to explore. The ice cream in Langholm is a must, and you can look for Cashmere bargains in Hawick. Visit Drumlanrigg Castle, Floors castle and Hermitage Castle.

Wildlife abounds and there is great bird watching locally, on the river in front of the house, at Longtown Ponds and by The Solway. The WWT reserve at Caerlaverock is well worth a visit, particularly in winter and spring when tens of thousands of Barnacle and Pink Footed Geese roost there.

Bicycles can be hired locally in Longtown.
