The property

Carlisle 8 miles.

This outstanding property is tucked away within the stable courtyard of the former High Head Castle, within Ivegill near Carlisle.

This Grade II listed dwelling comes with a unique layout, offering three well-presented bedrooms on the ground floor, each boasting a bright interior design, ensuring that you wake up to an uplifting atmosphere.

On this floor, you will also find a stylish family bathroom, where you can choose to indulge with a soak in the elegant bath tub before retiring for the evening.

For those family nights in make your way up the staircase to the open-plan living room where the character of the property is truly highlighted.

Look forward to unwinding on the sofa and rustling up an evening meal within the kitchen area with the stunning exposed beams and countryside views to admire.

If you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the group, venture up the spiral staircase to discover a secluded mezzanine snug room, where you can get lost within a book or enjoy a coffee in peace.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic retreat venture into the city of Carlisle, which offers an abundance of amenities and attractions including Carlisle Castle, Carlisle Cathedral and the wonderful Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery.

Alternatively, head to the Solway Coast AONB and discover luscious plains filled with an array of wildlife, stretching from Rockcliffe down to Maryport.

You are in a fabulous location for exploring the whole of the Lake District National Park, including the fell village of Caldbeck hosting a network of walking trails for all abilities.

Hesket New Market is also worth a visit for its own highly regarded microbrewery and pub, The Old Crown, serving the best beer in Cumbria.

You can also explore the Scottish Borders, the beautiful Eden Valley and of course Hadrian's Wall, which marches from sea-to-sea ending at Bowness-on-Solway.

Courtyard Cottage is perfect for enjoying a refreshing break with your loved ones.

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.
