We have recently returned from a lovely break at this fantastic place. The party was made up of 9 adults 5 children and 4 dogs. The delicious home made cake which was left for us didn't last very long! Richard was very welcoming and informative,...More

About the neighbourhood
The immediate area had a turbulent past and was part of the Debateable lands between England and Scotland, an area where no law prevailed. The Border Rievers would lure their enemies into the area to murder them, knowing that they could not be prosecuted by English or Scottish Law. Happily that was a long time ago and you will find a peaceful parkland landscape with lovely old buildings. Kirkandrews Tower was built in the 15th Century to protect The Grahams from the maraudering Armstrongs, Scotts & Kerrs. Kirkandrews Church stands closeby. This was built in the late 18th Century as a copy of the English Church in Venice. Its rather austere classical design belies the ornate interior inside. Kirkandrews House is Listed Grade II and has been created from two cottages and a barn.
