Brackenhill Tower Cumbria - Historic, Luxury Self Catering Property of Distinction. Full of history and romance, Brackenhill Tower is unique as being the only Scottish peel tower (fortified house) standing now on English soil, situated in the heart of what was once "the debatable lands" now just in England but practically right on the border with Scotland and only 6 miles from the romantic Wedding capital of Scotland Gretna Green.

The present tower, dating from the 16th Century, stands in its own grounds with ample car parking facilities and acres of landscaped gardens.

The Tower House Sleeps 10 PEOPLE and THE adjoining Jacobean Cottage sleeps 4-6 PEOPLE. This former Clan Graham stronghold now offers luxurious self catering accommodation combined with the character of authentic 16th Century castle living.

Brackenhill Tower is the perfect location for a holiday exploring the Scottish Borders, the North of England and the nearby Lake District, or a perfect venue for your wedding accommodation after a Gretna Green Wedding.
