Resting on the lovely Green Meadows Country Park is this beautifully finished lodge, Victory Lakewood 1, presenting six guests with a thoughtfully styled dwelling to relax in when not exploring Northern Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.

Located in the village of Blackford, just over five-miles from the Border City of Carlisle, Victory Lakewood 1 is excellently located for Hadrian's Wall, Gretna Green and all of Carlisle's attractions too.

Take the steps up onto the private enclosed decking before entering in through the glass door, instantly admiring the neutral hues and matching furnishings.

The TV in the sitting area can entertain on a quiet evening as you sink into the plush sofa or get snug in one of the armchairs, whilst dinner is prepared by the chef of the group in the sleek fitted kitchen, home to all the appliances you could want.

Enjoy the social aspect of this open-plan space allowing you to spend time together, with a dining table and chairs to gather around while you tuck into your home-cooked meal, with the enclosed decking being a lovely spot in summer to delight in alfresco dining with refreshing views over open fields to admire.

After an action-packed day of exploring, be sure to make the most of the private hot tub with plenty of seating for the whole group to soak up the countryside views as you unwind amidst the warming bubbles.

An excellent shower room presents a roomy double shower enclosure to wash in after a busy day of activities, a great way to wind down before getting settled in one of the two lovely bedrooms; choose from either the twin room which is home to a 3-foot single and a 2-foot 6-inch single or the master king-size bedroom, with both enjoying plenty of storage for your things, and the latter being home to a handy en-suite cloakroom with a basin and WC.

For an exciting stay to Cumbria and a tranquil base to return to, choose Victory Lakewood 1.

About the location


Gretna Green 13.1 miles; Penrith 19.9 miles; Dumfries 36.2 miles

Carlisle is set in the county of Cumbria, situated just 10 miles south of the Scottish Borders and is nicknamed the Border City. During Roman times the town was established to serve the forts for Hadrian's Wall, which runs east from the city across the country to Wallsend on the east coast and today is recognised as a World Heritage Site. During the Middle Ages, due to its proximity to the Kingdom of Scotland, Carlisle became an important military stronghold and Carlisle Castle, still relatively intact, was built in 1092 by William Rufus, after once serving as a prison for Mary, Queen of Scots. The castle now houses the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment and the Border Regiment Museum. In the early 12th century Henry I allowed the foundation of a priory in Carlisle and the town gained the status of a diocese in 1122, resulting in the priory becoming Carlisle Cathedral. The Settle to Carlisle railway runs across some of the most breathtaking scenery to the popular Yorkshire town and Carlisle Racecourse has a packed fixture list including Ladies’ Day and evening fixtures. Within driving distance is the Victorian seaside town of Silloth and just over the border is Gretna Green, where you'll find the Gretna Gateway Shopping Centre and Anvil Hall, the famous wedding venue.
