Key to the Esk: Testimonials

Wow just wow! This is the best air bnb we’ve stayed at. The communication from the hosts was quick and easy, arrival was simple and the cottage was just beautiful and so clean. Lots of special touches such as the hot tub, fire and amazing location. Would definitely recommend and we will definitely be back. Thanks again

Cumbria welcomes you

Perfectly located

The River Esk runs at the back of the property, fantastic walks can be had along the river and surrounding countryside. This is an ideal honeymoon destination as the world-famous Blacksmiths Shop and Scottish wedding venue at Gretna Green is only 3 miles away with fantastic shopping at the Gretna retail outlet. Key to the Esk is situated in lovely countryside nestled between the Lake District and Northumberland National Parks. The Solway coast is within an hours drive as is Dumfries and Galloway It couldn’t be easier to explore Scotland and England. After a day exploring the countryside, what better than to return to your tranquil retreat and sit under the pergola or relax in the hot tub. We are located in the small village of Longtown with a pub , cafe off licence and pub all within a short walk
