“Perfect”
Reviewed 9 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Stayed for a long weekend at Anrum House with family (2 couples and 2 teenage boys) as we were going to a family wedding.

Tracey was there to meet us on arrival. She is a lovely person and very helpful.
The house is absolutely amazing, clean, spacious, plenty of bathrooms, tvs in every room, fast internet and comfy beds.

The location is perfect, private and peaceful, yet only five minutes walk to hotel, pubs, train and shopping outlet.

The weather was warm and sunny and we enjoyed the hot tub and had a good laugh jumping on the trampoline.

I have recommended Ancrum House as a perfect place to stay while in Gretna to basicallt everyone I've spoken too since coming home and will definitely book the property again

“Fantastic place.”
Reviewed 5 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Location of Ancrum House is perfect, with a five minute walk to Gretna Gateway. House is spotless, this is the second year in a row that Myself, friends and family have stayed there - and we plan to stay again next year.
Tracy is an excellent host and nothing is too much trouble for her.
The garden is very private and the hot tub is an added bonus.

Thank you Tracy for everything from us all. See you next year. Xx

“STUNNING”
Reviewed 26 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We booked Tracey’s place a year ago so we could stay during my sisters wedding. We were really looking forward to staying here because of all the wonderful pictures we viewed. We thought the pictures were too good to be true. We were very wrong, the Ancrum House is so much spectacular than looking at the pictures. Tracey designed her place to perfection. She has thought of ideas that you would only see on TV. We can’t say enough about our stay. Enjoyed it tremendously!! I wish we didn’t live halfway across the globe so we could book her place again. You won’t want to leave once you stayed here. Plus, it is right by the train station... however you can’t hear any of the noise. Best place we have ever stayed at. Giving her place a 5 rating, still isn’t high enough.. 5 plus !! Thank you soooo much for meeting our every need. Wishing you and your family all the best.. Steve and Lori Walter

“Wonderful accommodation with a wonderful host”
Reviewed 27 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

So much attention to detail in this beautiful holiday let - it was perfect for us, and the hot tub was the icing on the cake.

Tracey was such a good host, providing an immaculate place for us to stay for a wedding.

Would happily stay here again if we were coming to Gretna.

“Exceptional *****”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We were a party of 4 adults and 3 kids aged 12, 9 and 5 years old. We arrived early and Tracey the owner let us in. The house is immaculate and decorated to very high standard. The house had everything in it you would need. To be honest we have stayed in a lot of different accommodations and for a more expensive cost but nothing that compares to this! This accommodation cost us approximately £550 for two nights and we all thought this was very reasonable. It is classed as 4* accommodation but we believe it is by far a 5* home! Tracey could not do enough for us and we felt very welcome from the start. This accommodation and the service from Tracey was faultless! Thanks so much for this Tracey as we created many happy memories on our break away!

We would also recommend the local takeaway Indian, it was delicious and also the gin tasting at Gretna Green. We also walked to the Gretna outlet and had a Costa and Pizza Express. The kids enjoyed spending their Easter money in The Works. Fab few nights away
