Where are you located?

We are located near Eaglesfield, in Dumfriesshire, South West Scotland. We are situated only six miles from historic Gretna Green, in a peaceful woodland. Despite being such a quiet setting, we are only two miles from the M74, and 17 miles from Carlisle. We are just over an hour from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle and around two hours from Manchester - Springkell is easily accessible and totally private.

Do you have charging points for electric vehicles?

How is Springkell heated?

Did you know Springkell is heated by green energy? Throughout the year we chop logs from our own fallen trees that are subsequently processed in our Biomass boiler. Burning our own logs is hugely sustainable - none of which come from further than a mile away from the house. We only use trees that have fallen down, and we plant double the number that fall down too to maintain our incredible woodland and gardens.
