The whole complex is self contained with beautiful gardens, bedrooms including magnificent bridal suites with huge bathrooms incorporating jacuzzi bath and fourposter beds, and amazing dining facilities.

Lovely setting outside Gretna Green, requires use of a car or taxis to get about but if you are there for a wedding you have a bar, restaurant everything you need on site to enjoy yourselves. One downside my partner only drinks Pimms but they do not stock it. The rooms are spread around the grounds in converted barns and...

We came back for our first anniversary and things were as good as we remembered. We checked in and were given the key and directions to our room.

We had been in the car all day to get up to the Scottish border and it was just awesome to have a lovely hotel to stay in the first night. My little sister had never stayed in a hotel before and was so impressed with how pretty the place is. Great service, patience with our check-in issues, lovely breakfast....
