  • "Michelle and Adrian were very welcoming and hospitable."

    The cottage is well suited for exploring Carlisle, the Lake District, Scotland and even venturing out onto the Carlisle to Settle railway. We had our bikes with us and Adrian kindly let us put them in his garage and it was no trouble to him or his family to get them out for us or put them away whenever we wanted, which was very kind. The cottage itself is very clean, the decoration is lovely, it's very comfortable and has everything you would need. We would thoroughly recommend this.

  • "From the welcome of the owners, the garden and surroundings on a summer's day, and everything in the cottage was terrific."

    I cannot recommend this highly enough - for sure we would stay there again, and will! We found the freezer at the end of the stay - freezer and washing machine are under the stairs, and we did not think to look! Thank you for everything - a great holiday

  • "This was a lovely place to stay very cosy and welcoming after a hard day's walking."

    Everything you need is provided and the cottage is very clean and tastefully decorated. The only issue we had was poor phone/internet signal but that's more down to the location... lovely and secluded .... than the owners. We had a great week.

The property

Carlisle 3 miles.

This is an 18th century converted mill, based on the outskirts of the Cumbrian city of Carlisle.

This remote, wonderfully furnished cottage is the ideal stay for families wanting a relaxing break in the countryside.

Walk through the entrance of Carleton Mill and upstairs to the accommodation under the eaves, accompanied with the original wooden beams from 1721.

The property comes with an open plan living area, a fresh yet cosy space with comfortable sofas, an electric fire and a TV, where you can curl up and watch your favourite film in the evenings.

The kitchen area comes with stylish fittings and provides all of the necessary equipment that you will require during your stay.

The bedrooms are pleasant and warming, boasting delightful linen, and the interior of the cottage is complete with a crisp family bathroom.

On a warm day, sit out in your private garden and relax with a refreshing drink and enjoy the views of the River Petteril.

Carlisle is the perfect place to base your holiday, it has everything you could need from shopping, eating and drinking to architecture, history and activities for everybody to enjoy.

There are many fascinating places within driving distance, with Gretna Green, Penrith and Dumfries all worth visiting whilst you're here.

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.
