  • "We loved the area - great for bird-watching and nature reserves."

    We enjoyed seeing people walking the Hadrian's Wall path and chatting with them. We loved exploring the area - it was our first time there. Just one very small thing about the property. It has a skylight window, but which had no blind so at night we couldn't shut out the light from that window. Although to be fair it didn't keep us awake. May have been more of a problem during the really long days of mid-summer.

  • "This was an all new property throughout and very nice too."

    There were teething problem's with heating and hot water going off over the stay to which Ian ( the owner ) responded very quickly. This did not spoil our stay one bit. Great stay.

About the location

BOWNESS-ON-SOLWAY

Wigton 10 miles; Carlisle 13 miles.

The village of Bowness-on-Solway lies within the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to the west of the city of Carlisle. The village has a pub and a tea room and Hadrian’s Wall stretches from the village to Wallsend near Newcastle for some 73 miles, with the walk being defined as a ‘National Trail’. The surrounding area is rich in bird life visiting the sand dunes, salt marsh, shingle beds, and peat mosses, and there are many viewpoints and lay-bys, perfect for spotting the waders: oystercatchers, curlew, golden and grey plover, lapwing, knot, dunlin, bar-tailed and black-tailed godwit, redshank, and turnstone. In 1869 a rail line, the Solway Junction Railway, was opened between Bowness and Annan in Scotland, connecting to the Maryport and Carlisle railway. The 1 mile and 176 yard long iron girder viaduct across the water was damaged by an ice build-up in 1875, and again in 1881. It was repaired and continued as a passenger train until 1914 when it became a freight train until 1921, before finally being demolished in 1934. Nearby, the market town of Wigton and the city of Carlisle are popular centres for shopping, pubs and restaurants. Wigton also has a weekly market taking place every Friday and also boasts a theatre. The Victorian seaside resort of Silloth is 16 miles away, whilst Keswick and the heart of the Lake District are reached in 40 minutes' by car. A wonderful base for exploring Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.
