Historic border town and capital of Cumbria, try one of our
Carlisle cottages for a holiday full of surprises!
When you think of Carlisle a few things instantly spring to
mind. Hadrian's Wall, of course, just a short drive away - a
legendary World Heritage Site built by the Romans, offering a
National Trail and Cycleway plus numerous impressive attractions.
Carlisle Castle, founded in 1092, looms over the city as a constant
reminder of Anglo-Scottish battles - discover its dark dungeons and
maze of labyrinths. Next, Henry VIII's imposing Citadel, once a
major entrance into the city. Carlisle Cathedral features a
magnificent 14th Century stained glass window, while the Tullie
House Museum & Art Gallery vividly brings Carlisle's
heritage and past to life.
If shopping's more your thing, there are lots of
pedestrianised areas, award-winning malls, colourful farmers'
markets, as well as a traditional, Victorian indoor market. From
designer couture to trendy high street names, gifts, toys and more,
return to your Carlisle cottage with bags galore!
Dining out is a globe-trotting experience, with a whole host of
restaurants and take-aways covering every palate and budget. Other
entertainment ranges from cinema and theatre to comedy nights,
ghostly tours and one-off extravaganzas. Look out, too, for
festivals and other events - the Summer Music Festival perhaps or
Guy Fawkes' celebrations. Add museums, nature reserves, not to
mention daytrips on the Settle-Carlisle Railway and everyone's
bound to be happy.
And with the Lake District and Scotland right on your doorstep,
expect some amazing scenery whichever way you head from your cosy
