We stayed at North Lodge for two nights to finalise details of our forthcoming wedding. On arrival, we were warmly greeted by Joanne, the joint owner and showed to our room. We were invited to have have tea and coffee outside in the jazebo with scones! As first impressions go, none could be better! We were then joined by Stuart, the other owner who we found to be just as warm and friendly, and very knowledgeable of the local area. Throughout our stay we felt we could not be more accomodated with some great ideas of places to go and to eat (the Marshbank Hotel was a great tip for dinner!). The rooms were clean, tidy and tastefully decorated and the location was close to Gretna and links to go out and about the local area. By the end of our stay we felt more like personal guests than paying customers. If there ever was a place to stay locally, then this must be your first choice!
P.S. You must have the breakfast!
