“Excellent weekend”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Just returned from a fantastic weekend with group of friends staying at Kirkandrews House. The house is set in beautiful parkland beside the River Esk with wonderful views from most windows. It is an ideal place to spent with time with a group of friends with lots of space and providing everything you need. We really enjoyed walking along the river into Longtown from the house. We especially appreciated the wonderful log fires and friendly welcome.

“Fabulous house”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fourteen of my family members stayed in this lovely house, last week. We absolutely loved the house and surrounding views. Upon arrival a lovely cake had been made for us it was beautiful and a very kind gesture.
Kirkandrews House was a great place to relax. We also visited Hadrians Wall, Carlisle, local forests and had several walks along the river Esk. There are large superstores not far from the house which was very handy indeed especially when cooking for the whole family. I would definitely go back to this house again.

Spent a marvelous weekend with our family of 12 at Kirkandrews House. Accommodation first rate (the house is sooo BIG). The location is wonderful, fields, animals, river, walks, equipment and games, arga cooker, Gretna Green and Outlets Shopping nearby. Owners were very welcoming. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a countryside retreat with places to visit also within easy reach. DEFINITELY will go back (and that goes for all the family).

“A magical spot in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside”

I feel like I've found the perfect family getaway. There is bags of room so you can relax together but have your own space too. Countryside is staggeringly beautiful, but can warm up by the aga when you get back. Huge dining room table, yet cosy enough to feel like the place is home. Log fires and most comfortable beds. Oh, and the views are astounding. Looking out at the River Esk over a morning cup of coffee is just so civilised and I imagine is a major plus for those into their fishing. Lots of board games, TV, and the owners, Richard and Juliet are super friendly and helpful. Thank you for the best stay ever! We'll be back.

“Fabulous accommodation for large party”

Driving up to the house first impressions were wow! Fabulous, beautiful and characterful, great for large gatherings of friends and family. Lovely welcome from Richard the owner - fires were blazing, flowers and cake on dining room table (cake was yummy - thank you) Wonderful views from every window - a walk to the pretty church and suspension bridge is a must! Huge, super comfy beds with fluffy duvets and pillows - bliss. Everything we needed for comfortable, relaxing, 'home from home' weekend but with oodles of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. Richard (owner) was very accommodating in allowing us to make use of the large grounds - we hired some 'inflatable' games to provide some party entertainment - great fun although slightly chilly and unseasonal for February. Would not hesitate in going back to visit again - highly recommended!
