The wifi signal was poor and the continental breakfast of cereal and yoghurt was disappointing.... More

Stopped here for the night whilst doing the Reivers Way cycle route. The owner was very obliging and put our bikes in the central courtyard. The room was large and comfortable with en suite shower. Evening meals are available but are mainly Indian cuisine. The nearest town is Longtown and there is a bus that stops right outside the guesthouse.... More

We booked this B&B as it's really close to the M6 and we were breaking our journey back from Inverness. The exterior is not promising, it's a bit tired and needs a spruce up to make it more welcoming. The owner is a lovely man who made us feel really welcome. We stayed in Room 2, which is a smallish...

We stayed in room 2 which was an ok size double. We were told at check in that the price only included continental breakfast which isn't what we were led to believe when booking. But the breakfast was a perfectly fine continental so free is free. The shower was tepid for me and cold for my husband. The wifi was... More

Clean, friendly and comfortable. We stayed for one night on our way to the Highlands. We didn't eat evening meal here but breakfast was good. Traffic didn't bother us and we were by the road in a great room. Really good value for a stop over. Would recommend

The B&B was a little run down at the back with exterior paint flaking of the walls but the new owners are in the process of improving the B & B so in the next 6 months the deco will improve. The room was quite small. Rooms where clean and quite and it was only a few minutes to Carlisle... More

Travelling through to Scotland we stopped overnight at this great place. The old building was really interesting and the location was convenient. The rooms were comfortable, cosy and warm and beautifully presented with great ensuits. We had a really tasty evening meal and the breakfast was terrific. Very warm and friendly place. Really great overnight stop in lovely countryside.
