• About Ancrum House

    This stunningly presented holiday home provides spacious accommodation that has been thoughtfully presented throughout - perfect for a larger social gathering.

    This holiday cottage is light and spacious, making the perfect base for families and couples alike. The large entertaining kitchen/dining room are flooded with light from the large sky light and bi-folding doors that open out onto the fully enclosed garden.
    This detached holiday property boasts a second living room set just off the kitchen, which is idyllic for your little ones who prefer their own space. Both living rooms have a Smart TV and connections for games consoles. The family bathroom has a touch of luxury with a large walk-in shower, underfloor heating and even a child height second sink. There is also plenty of storage space, including a porch which can store coats, shoes and prams. This delightful holiday home has all luxury features that guests could need for a relaxing and cosy break away.
    Ancrum House is nestled in Gretna Green - known for its weddings at the famous Blacksmiths Shop and being the first village in Scotland where traditionally couples used to run away and marry here as the legal age was lower than just over the border in England. Due to this, the town has featured in many famous literary pieces, including Pride and Prejudice. It is still one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations, even to this day. The train station is just a 2-minute walk, and there is a bus stop close to the cottage, making this an ideal location for people without cars. The house is ideally placed for exploring as it is placed just a couple of miles from the motorway; the property is also within easy reach of the Scottish Borders and the Lake District. Nearby there is a fun day’s shopping at Gretna Green Outlet Village, the great border city of Carlisle with the county’s most besieged castle and fantastic Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery. There is also the creatively named Devils Porridge Museum, where you can learn the story of how this once quiet area flourished into a hub of wartime activity. Beach 2 miles. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    Beautiful house with spacious enclosed garden. Added bonus of a lovely hot tub. House was well equipped with everything you need. Just a few minutes walk to Blacksmiths shop for weddings. Also about 5 mins to shopping outlet. Only drawback was the location on a busy road so if you were sleeping at the front of the house there was traffic noise quite early in the morning. Tracey the owner was lovely, really helpful and made us feel really welcome. A lovely touch was the prosecco and chocolates......Thank you Tracey.?

    We had a fantastic stay at Ancrum House. The accommodation was immaculate, spacious and met our needs for the weekend completely. Tracey the owner was very welcoming and ensured we had everything we needed. The house is next to the train station and a 10/15 minute walk to the outlet village and a local bar. We will definitely be back again! Thank you for a lovely weekend.

    We had a great time at the property, everything you needed and more were supplied. The property itself is beautifully designed and decorated. The host is friendly and warm and nothing is too much trouble. The location is excellent for Gretna and beyond.
