Cleugh Foot

Longtown, Cumbria, England

Gorgeous large cottage, ideal for two couples or a family, enjoys countryside views and a private hot tub near the Cumbria/Scotland border.

The Quirky Tour

A solid and beautifully converted 3 bedroom house on an estate close to the Scottish border and Gretna Green. Lots of woodland and open space to enjoy without neighbours.

We got into the large hot tub to watch the sunset and kept our heads under the lip when the wind got up!

Locally you can explore the miles of woodland on your doorstep or go further afield to Carlisle, where you can visit Tullie House or the famous Castle. Spontaneous couples might enjoy a romantic trip to the infamous Gretna Green, just a short distance from Carlisle! Further afield is the Lake District, where you can enjoy a day of hiking or watersports. 

If you wish to stay closer to home then a walk around the Border Esk over the swing bridge will take you to Kirkandrews Church. A tasty meal can be enjoyed at the Penton Bridge Inn just 4 miles away. 

A maximum of two dogs are welcome for an additional cost of £20 each per stay, but are not allowed upstairs. Dogs must be kept on the lead when outside as there is livestock on site.
