We’re located between the ancient Roman city of Carlisle and the Solway Coast that forms part of the border between England and Scotland. It has been a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1964.

4. The “Thurstonfield” village sign is in this bend – indicate left after you pass the village sign.
5. We are the first drive you come to on the left, discreetly signed “The Tranquil Otter”, with white stones up the side. This is about 50 metres before the 30 mph speed limit sign going into Thurstonfield village
