Bowness House Farm

Four cosy shepherd's huts built on a Roman Fort at the end of Hadrian's Wall in the enticing village of Bowness-on-Solway. Part of the Solway Coast AONB and home to nationally and internationally important species, the destination is perfect for walking, cycling and bird watching with several nature reserves nearby, such as Campfield Marsh RSPB reserve, South Solway Mosses NNR, Finglandrigg Wood NNR and Drumburgh Moss. Whether you plan on touring the location or admiring it all from the comfort of the cottage, there are plenty of opportunities to be at one with natural surroundings. With each retreat providing its own enclosed grounds, picnic bench, and barbecue, you can relax outdoors at your own leisure, even come together with your loved ones for some quality time under the sun. An exceptional addition to this group of cottages is a shared gym, which includes a series of quality equipment for guests to make use of during their stay. For something different, why not spend an afternoon in the local pub 100 yards away. The entire location is appreciated for its closeness to the beach and coast, wading birds and beautiful dark skies, not forgetting the significant Lake District National Park just waiting to be explored.

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.
