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)
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.
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...
With courtesy and respect - at the same time relaxed, treating it as their own home. No smoking inside. Well behaved dog or 2 welcome.
