  • “It's a beautiful little place in a lovely part of the world.”

    It's incredibly private so the hot tub and bifold doors meant we spent lots of time drinking in the nature of the pond and wildlife area. (We had lots of visits from Mr Pheasant) It is compact with no wardrobe and only a small handheld mirror, so pack light. As pathetic millennials we would have loved a bigger TV (maybe that swivelled around to the bedroom area), or a bigger sofa as we had very rainy weather so settled in for a movie and popcorn and found it a little tricky to get properly ...

    It's incredibly private so the hot tub and bifold doors meant we spent lots of time drinking in the nature of the pond and wildlife area. (We had lots of visits from Mr Pheasant) It is compact with no wardrobe and only a small handheld mirror, so pack light. As pathetic millennials we would have loved a bigger TV (maybe that swivelled around to the bedroom area), or a bigger sofa as we had very rainy weather so settled in for a movie and popcorn and found it a little tricky to get properly comfy - but that compelled us to get out and brave the rain more and of course to enjoy the hot tub in the rain...which is fanctasic! We would highly recommend going for a meal at the hidden river cafe. It's a beautiful restaurant with great food and we saw deer on our way there. Book a taxi well in advance if you want to have a drink. Longtown has lots of amenities and is a short drive, (not really walkable for the pub) but with a hot tub at home we were happy to get back and settle in for the evening. Good takeaways available which is great as cooking isn't the easiest but I did manage a full English! Would highly recommend for couples wanting some down time. It's a bit like very glamourous glamping, I felt at one with nature, yet I had all my creature comforts. I would love to go back and try one of the other properties on site, all of which seemed really private and like they had something unique to experience. Also, the Moat honey sold in the shack is *chefs kiss*. Would highly recommend.

The property

The Chard enjoys a rural position on the outskirts of the charming town of Longtown which acts as a centre for exploring four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This romantic hideaway is ideal for a couple seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and explore the magnitude of walks and historical landmarks that are within close reach of the dwelling.

After an action-packed day, look forward to relaxing into your evening within the open-plan living room, where bi-folding doors filter in natural light into the space and offer picturesque views of the surrounding gardens, ensuring a tranquil setting for you and your partner.

Rustle up a home-cooked meal within the compact kitchen before stepping out onto the decked area to admire the views further and dipping into the bubbling hot tub, a perfect spot for star gazing.

As the evening draws to a close, retire to the night's embrace within the bedroom, where a plush double bed with quality linens awaits you.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic space, head into the centre of Longtown where a selection of amenities awaits you, or venture slightly further to the city of Carlisle where you can discover its 12th century fortress, the medieval cathedral and the superb Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery.

Alternatively, brush up on the local history by spending time at Hadrian's Wall or wander the picturesque landscapes of nearby Solway Coast AONB, the Northumberland National Park, North Pennines AONB and the Lake District National Park.

The Chard is an idyllic base for exploring the delights of this part of England.

The Chard is one of a group of properties which may be booked together to sleep up to 10 people.
Ideal for groups of friends who like to holiday together with the benefit of individual private facilities.

About the location

LONGTOWN

Gretna Green 7.7 miles; Carlisle 8.5 miles; Brampton 11 miles; Dumfries 27.5 miles

A delightful, well-stocked town in northern Cumbria that runs alongside the River Esk. Longtown is a fantastic base for a holiday as it comes in the centre of four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including Solway Coast AONB, the Northumberland National Park, North Pennines AONB and the Lake District National Park.The local area offers a pleasant range of shops, pubs and restaurants for you to choose from. There are some beautiful places nearby, offering even more places to go and things to do. Brampton and Carlisle are nearby with beautiful buildings. As Longtown is so close to Scotland, it would be rude not to visit Dumfries and Galloway. Edinburgh and Glasgow are just over an hours drive away.

Please note as the hot tub is emptied, cleaned and re filled between each booking it may not be at the optimum temperature for your arrival.
