    “We found the cottage to be comfortable and well equipped.”

    The owners were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed Bowness on Solway, the people were very welcoming, and we enjoyed our visit to the local pub, good food and we were able to get the morning papers, we were made very welcome.

The property

This characterful original farmhouse, rests on the site of the second largest Fort on Hadrian's Wall in the little hamlet of Bowness on Solway.

Wrapped in fine detail and boasting three bedrooms; this cottage is perfect for families looking for an all round peaceful escape.

Wander into the magnificent hallway, home to a wooden arch which sets the tone on arrival.

Across the way, a sitting room hosts leather seating, and an inglenook fireplace with a woodburner.

In the evening you can cosy up in the warmth and read a good book amongst it all.

The dining room makes a charming place to sit down with your loved ones under wooden beams and next to the electric woodburner-effect fire.

Close by, a utility room holds those extras you may need during your stay.

The well-equipped kitchen is pretty and homely, fitted with dark wood units and cream marble effect counter tops, ideal for baking in the afternoon, or preparing breakfast in the morning time.

Take the stairs up to two double bedrooms, one overlooked by a Velux window and elevated by sloped ceilings, whilst the second comes complete with a small two seater sofa.

You will enjoy relaxing here, before drifting into a good nights sleep.

The third bedroom is a king-size double, tied together with bedside tables and a wardrobe for your convenience.

The beautiful bespoke en-suite compliments the room well, with a walk-in shower and stunning black and white décor.

If this isn't enough, a spacious family bathroom is perfect for relaxing after a long day, stylish and well presented for a glimpse of luxury.

To the front of the cottage is a small paved sunny garden, where you can unwind on the bench and embrace some 'me time'.

Bowness on Solway offers much to admire, being home to a pub and a tea room, whilst Hadrian’s Wall stretches from the village to Wallsend.

The Victorian seaside resort of Silloth is 16 miles away, whilst Keswick and the heart of the Lake District are easily reached by car.

Make the most of this desirable getaway.

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.
