Holiday Rental House
A comfortable house in a beautiful location overlooking The River Border Esk and parkland, just half a mile from The Scottish Border. Standing next to a 15th century Peele tower, the property formed an old Border Riever's stronghold. Apart from the Tower (30 m away) the property is isolated from other houses. It is reached by a 400m privateTarmac drive and has plenty of room to park in the gravelled courtyard. It has a large garden which is largely lawn, sun loungers, garden furniture and barbecue. Accommodation comprises Dining Room, Sitting Room, Hall / Games Room, Tv Room, Kitchen, Utility Room and downstairs bedroom. Upstairs there are 5 double / twin rooms (2 en-suite), 1 single room and 2 family bathrooms.

The kitchen is well equipped and has an oil fired Aga. There is a good modern electric cooker as a standby should your first Aga adventure be unsuccessful and all the appliances were new in August 2014. The house is perfect place to relax with family and friends with lovely walks by the river and locally and plenty of space in the house. Fishing can be arranged on the river in front of the house and further afield and a tennis court is available nearby. Bird watching is great locally with many different habitats from heather moorland to foreshore within 10 miles. Miles of uncrowded roads make bicycling enjoyable, bicycles can be hired in Longtown. There is a wide variety of Golf courses, with two wonderful championship links at Silloth and Southerness. Both about an hour away, but seriously worth the journey. Visit Historic Carlisle, The Roman Wall, Gretna Green and The Scottish Borders. Being so close to the M6 and M74 means that further destinations can easily be reached. Ullswater can comfortably be reached in 40 minutes and Glasgow is just over an hour away.More

Kirkandrews Tower was built in the 15th Century to protect The Grahams from the maraudering Armstrongs, Scotts & Kerrs. Kirkandrews Church stands closeby. This was built in the late 18th Century as a copy of the English Church in Venice. Its rather austere classical design belies the ornate interior inside. Kirkandrews House is Listed Grade II and has been created from two cottages and a barn. There are ...
