About the neighbourhood
Longtown is a busy small market town with a population of 2.5K. There are a few small shops, petrol station, hairdressers, newsagents, butcher's bakers and pubs. For delicious food and drink, head to Pentonbridge Inn 3 miles north on Netherby Road. There you will find a superb country inn with log fires and a menu to suit a wide range of tastes.The border city of Carlise is 11 miles south with many shops, cafes, a museum and castle. Gretna Green is 6 miles west. Hadrians Wall is around 15 miles away on the B6318 from Pentonbridge Inn taking you to Gilsland and Birdoswald. The largest Tibetan Monestry is 28 miles north through Langholm at Eskdalemuir. Well worth a visit. You will find lots more info in your welcome pack.
Getting around
You would really need your own transport to easily get around the area. There is such a lot to explore. We are approx 40 minutes from the Lake District and minutes from the valleys of Dumfries & Galloway and the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders. Longtown is 2 miles from Netherby with a good taxi service and the bus route linking Carlisle to Edinburgh and Dumfries. Information is available in each of our rooms.
