    “There is a major leak in the bedroom, the window frame outside has rotted away.”

    All the paintwork needs tidying up, this used to be a lovely place, but it has been neglected. We will not be back.

    Thank you for providing feedback on your stay Mr Winnifrith. We extend our sincere apologies for the issues you faced during your stay and regret any impact it had on your break. We are aware of the window leak and have the property booked in for repair, however we recognise this is no use to yourselves. The paintwork is due to be done during the same period of repair. We are sorry your stay was not up to standard, these issues will be addressed immediately. Kind regards, Carwinley. 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.

Please note as the hot tub is emptied, cleaned and re filled between each booking it may not be at the optimum temperature for your arrival.
