Hopes House is remote - it lies among rolling hills in the beautiful Cumbrian Borders. 7 miles from Longtown. Well positioned for visiting the Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Lake,the Solway coast, Kirklinton Hall, Lanercost Priory & pretty market town of Brampton. Walby Farm Park nearby, for children's entertainment. Good local walks. Guests can roam on the farmland around the house (we politely ask the gates are shut and livestock not disturbed)

The space

Guests will enjoy a cosy sitting room with TV and log burner. There is also a boot room, should guests have pets (which are welcome). There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two single beds. And two bathrooms, one with a shower + bath, the other with just bath.
Guests can roam on the farmland (we politely ask that gates are shut and livestock not disturbed) There is a big stone barn with a ping pong table and a darts board.

Guest access

A yard to park in with separate access to your living area.

Interaction with guests

Scilla will be your hostess and her son, Tom Dillon, will more often than not be there to help her. Breakfast is simple, with juices, cereal, fruits, toast.
If requested a cooked breakfast can be provided, at a small extra charge - £6 for two.

Other things to note

This is a remote area, therefore, restaurants/pubs are in the vicinity but range from 3 to 7 miles away from the house. The track (Lonning) to the house is long and no tarmac! Satnav can take you to farm behind...

We had a wonderful stay with Scilla. She was so helpful and kind. The rooms were clean and comfortable and she even has fresh flowers in the rooms: such a lovely touch. We would definitely stay again! Really do yourself a favour and stay at Scilla's place

Very charming and super comfortable accommodation. Scilla was very welcoming. We also loved having dinner at Hidden River Cabins, seeing the wild deer in the garden, and trying to pat the sheep.

For a first time Airbnb user I was unsure on what to expect, Scilla made myself and my girlfriend feel at home within seconds. Make sure you follow the instructions on how to find Scilla's as they are extremely accurate. The help Scilla provided on how to get to near by locations, Kielder Forest for myself, were really helpful. The breakfast options as well was fantastic!! I just wished I could have stayed for more nights. P.S. you'll fall in love with Scilla's dogs Stella and Duster

Scilla is a teriffic hostess and accommodating. She provided a very nice breakfast each morning when we were ready to eat. The house is very quiet and we had use of an upstairs bedroom, bathroom X2, living room and dining room. Outstanding location, especially if you are visiting the border region.

Scilla's place is just wonderful. She has a beautiful home, very clean and comfortable and she was an excellent host. There were fresh flowers in our bedroom and the presentation was impeccable. The house is located in a lovely secluded spot so we appreciated the good directions. Scilla's recommendation for local places to eat were also great. Would highly recommend and hope to stay again! Thanks!!
