Mosspaul is steeped in Borders history and tradition and is itself a landmark on the road from Edinburgh to Carlisle. It is set in miles of beautiful rural countryside, where sheep farming is the main source of income. The house has recorded history as a coaching inn dating from the 17th century and was either a monastery or chapel before that called St Paul's on the Moss. It has played host to famous visitors and colourful local characters over the years and most local people could tell you a story or two about it. We chose to live here as the rural setting suits us (and our dogs!) and we fell in love with the old Inn on sight.

Mosspaul has its own working bar, a sitting room with log burner and a multipurpose media room with 11 foot screen for cinema, TV Freesat, DVD and Wii, table tennis or dining for up to 28.

The house has 2 double rooms ensuite, 1 twin room ensuite, 1 double ensuite with an adjoining room with a triple bunk, 1 family room ensuite with a double bed and a triple bunk and the veranda room which has two triple bunks. Bed linen is provided, but not bath and hand towels.
The house is rented as a whole so guests have exclusive use of the facilities.

Guests have access to the entire house apart from the owners wing which is situated towards the back of the property and well out of the way.

We will be to hand in the owners wing on site during your stay. However, when the accommodation is booked, the house (apart from our wing!) is yours and we will not come in unless you ring for us. We will greet your party and show you round the premises. We can provide some housekeeping and catering by arrangement. We can also hire guests canoes, kayaks, archery equipment and a poker table.

Mosspaul is situated on the boundary between the Scottish Borders and Dumfries and Galloway, set in beautiful, but sometimes wild farm and moorland. The region has its own unique history and culture that differs from town to town. You will find excellent hill walking on the doorstep, and fishing, shooting, cycling, great roads for motorbikes, horseriding, quirky villages, museums, stately homes, forbidding castles, abbeys and shopping all close by. It is also an ideal place to kick back and relax away from the bustle of everyday life.

There are festivals all year round, such as the Denholm Folk Festival and the Borders Book Festival. Possibly the most famous are the Border Common Ridings which take place each summer. This historic event dates back centuries and is still the main event of the year in each town. The people of the towns take to horseback and ride the borders of each area, just as they did many years ago when they kept them safe and secure from neighbouring thieves of livestock and land. There are two rideouts to Mosspaul itself taking place in late May every year. Please check the dates with the owners if you wish to visit at this time.

Shops and supermarkets in Langholm (17kms) and Hawick (21kms) should cater for all your needs while you stay at Mosspaul.
Mosspaul is set on the high point between the Teviot Valley to the west and the Ewes Valley to the East. We are 10 miles from Langholm and 13 miles from Hawick in an area of peaceful and thriving farm and moorland just by the source of the river Teviot. There are many walks right on the doorstep, and you can attempt the three Mosspaul Marilyns direct from the hotel without having to step into a car. Within easy reach by car are walking for all abilities, water sports at Keilder Water and off road cycling at both 7 Stanes and Craik Forrest. If you are more interested in history, both Hawick and Langholm have museums and Hermitage Castle, Bowhill and Abbotsford, to name a few, are all within easy reach.

We recommend you bring cars to Mosspaul. The X95 running between Edinburgh and Carlisle stops at the house. The nearest train station is in Carlisle, and the nearest airport is there too.

Mosspaul is bookable for a minimum of 2 nights throughout the year, except for Christmas and Easter when the minimum booking is 4 nights, and July and August when it is bookable for a minimum of 3 nights. We have started accepting 1 night bookings during the week at a price of £700 per night. Booking depends on our other commitments and weekend business so please enquire in the first instance and we will always try to accommodate mid-week business.

Mosspaul is exactly what it says on the tin, a very large house in a secluded, scenic area! A group of us stayed Fri-Sun to celebrate my husband's 30th and had a brilliant time. Highlights were the working bar area (much more fun than just hanging out in the living space), the large cinema room (perfect for a screening of our recent wedding video and favourite films) and big industrial style kitchen for cooking up a feast. Alison and her husband stay in a connected space and are around to help, but we had privacy and were able to party without any worry of waking the hosts! Our only (major!) regret is not working out that since the hot-tub can take 6-8 hours to heat, we needed to get up early on the Sat to get it going before it turned dark again, but it looked really cool and perhaps we'll get another go at it if we return in the summer!

Thanks very much Amanda. We love having groups in who make good use of the house and are so glad you had a good time. We are working on the hot tub for a solution on how to get it hotter faster so watch this space. You and your group would be very welcome back. Alison

Absolutely brilliant 2 night stay! Came for a 20 person stag weekend and this place did not disappoint! Alison and Eddie were so accommodating and they were there to help whenever we needed anything, without getting in the way at all. A highlight was the archery. Eddie set everything up for us and we spent hours out the front, even though we were all pretty rubbish at it! The hot tub was great too and my table tennis has improved ten fold. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a getaway. We want to come back already! Thanks again, Anthony and the gang!

Excellent place to host a stag do. Alison is there as much as you need her to be and doesn't intrude. The facilities were everything you wanted in a stag venue with pool, darts, table tennis and hot tub! But the main attraction has to be having your own bar area and kegs to pull your own beer. Would definitely recommend to others

Stayed at Mosspaul for a stag do, and had a great time. Alison made it all so easy. It didn't matter what we asked, it wasn't a problem. All the guys enjoyed pouring their own pints, and I enjoyed using the big kitchen to make a feast. There were probably times when we got pretty noisy. But that wasn't a problem as Alison and Eddie are on site, which is reassuring, but in a separate residence. Mosspaul is very remote, but as it's on the a7, there's easy access to transport. The x95 bus stops right outside. We would definitely stay at Mosspaul again!

Mosspaul was an absolutely fantastic venue to celebrate our friend’s 30th birthday. There were 20 in our group, aged between 25-35, and similarly to some previous reviewers we were looking for somewhere to let our hair down as well as being close to beautiful scenery. Alison was a brilliant host, she made us feel very welcome and took care to show & tell us everything we needed to know. Although her flat is in the house, she reassured us that we couldn’t disturb her and encouraged us to turn the music up as much as we wanted in the living room and bar area. As we were leaving, she even said that she had been impressed with our partying stamina - so she clearly didn’t mind us loitering on the doorstep, still up from the night before, as she left for her morning jobs! The bar was great fun, and during the day people could choose whether to climb hills (which a few in our party did – there is one hill walk nearby that takes about 3 hours up to the trig point and back), play table tennis in the games room or chat next to the wood stove in the living room. Alison was also happy for us to decorate the house with bunting & birthday banners, and to have tea lights in jars around the place which meant we could make it really cosy & lovely for our friend arriving. Overall Mosspaul was brilliant and we’d all heartily recommend it for anyone wanting a weekend like ours. Thanks for having us Alison!

Mosspaul was an excellent venue and I'd recommend to anybody looking for a unique, relaxed setting for their get-together. We had a group of 14 guys staying for 3 nights and the house was perfect, with plenty to keep us entertained - the centerpiece being our very own bar for the weekend. Alison was very helpful, showed us around the house and before letting us settle in to our stay. While the venue is connected to the owner's house, we never felt imposed on and could relax while knowing that any problems could be dealt with quickly. Hopefully we'll be back again to watch the rugby on the giant screen!

Had a great time at Mosspaul. Lots for our party to enjoy. Large cinema (I've been in smaller multiplex cinemas) which is perfect to enjoy a movie or play the Wii, which is also included. Kitchen has everything you will need to cater for your party. I made chili and curry for 21. Pots and range more than ample to allows to cook. Bar is well stocked with glasses. Everyone took turn serving behind the bar. Great fun. We used all of the bedrooms for our guests. All slept well and enjoyed a massive breakfast the following morning. I now think I can run my own B&B, surely it can't always be this fun. Highly recommend.
