The company headquarters are in Langholm, approximately 25 miles drive from Carlisle, in Dumfries & Galloway. Carlisle has a principal station on the West Coast main line from London Euston and sits on the M6 motorway. This location provides ready access to the major facilities expected of a city, combined with the possibility of living in one of the finest countryside areas in the UK.
Almost every conceivable type of outdoors and countryside activity is at hand. There are fishing rivers, hill walking areas and golf courses nearby. The Lake District is a short drive away. Boating facilities are available on the Solway Firth, in the Lake District and on Kielder Water (30 miles away). Langholm also has a fine tradition of rugby. The close proximity of the Border provides access to either the English or Scottish schooling systems.
