Got married at Gretna Green in 2004.Booked wedding reception & 3 night stay for small party of guests, at The POWFOOT GOLF HOTEL.Very reasonable room rates,considering the beautiful location.All our guests were very happy with our choice of this perfectly situated hotel.
The hotel is right on the SOLWAY FIRTH.On our wedding day, you could see right across the solway to see fab views, of the cumbrian fells.The beach feel, made it feel like a mini- holiday for our guests & made an excellent backdrop for our wedding photos!.The staff was very friendly,even though we organised our wedding venue ourselves( it was our choice, as we always wanted to marry at the blacksmiths shop),the staff always helped with any queries we had about our reception details & gave good sound advice when we needed it.Even for our wedding day!. Everything was "tailor made" to our requirements which made our day special & unique,even down to the personalised menus,which made lovely keepsakes!.Most of all the accommodation was comfortable,with again lovely views of the solway firth,The food was smashing and my favourite had to be the buffet breakfast,very hearty,you could even try some haggis!.The staff also are very welcoming of children aswell,for those of you wishing to take any children along on a break to this hotel,which also made our stay great!.The hotel was also very clean.
Powfoot itself is very quaint & pretty,it is well worth a walk around,even though it is all residential,locals seemed friendly.If it's peace & quiet you are after,with lovely views and value for money,after a hectic wedding or visit to Gretna Green,the powfoot is the perfect place to chill out & relax!.
Will be going back hopefully this year!.Can't wait!.
