Canonbie is an attractive rural village on the River Esk, close to the England/Scotland border and an excellent situation for access to the City of Carlisle and Junction 44 of the M6 and also to the A74(M) at Gretna.

There is also a good range of local facilities available in the nearby towns of Langholm and Longtown which are approximately 6 miles in distance.
