    Hi there, I travelled from the North East and it took approx 7 hours. Add an other couple of hours from Leeds? Depending on the route the potential stops include Gretna Green. The journey is worth it - hope you enjoy!

    Hi, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not have a Swimming Pool at the hotel. However our local community Swimming pool is only 400m away. I hope this helps. Kind Regards
