    “The Pointer Dog House was amazing !”

    ! We had a family of 9 to stay at this perfect home with such beautiful views. We were attending my son's wedding in Carlisle on March 30, 2019. I can't say enough great things about this house. We were met by the hostess who showed us around the house. She was so sweet !! This house really had it all. As you walk in you have a nice mudroom to leave your shoes or umbrella. Washer and dryer are in a large room that allowed several of us (meaning my children) to fold laundry at the same time ...

    ! We had a family of 9 to stay at this perfect home with such beautiful views. We were attending my son's wedding in Carlisle on March 30, 2019. I can't say enough great things about this house. We were met by the hostess who showed us around the house. She was so sweet !! This house really had it all. As you walk in you have a nice mudroom to leave your shoes or umbrella. Washer and dryer are in a large room that allowed several of us (meaning my children) to fold laundry at the same time. Bathroom was also available on this floor. From the mudroom or from the laundry room, you go into the kitchen. The kitchen was a great gathering place and Wow the views from the kitchen were gorgeous !! The kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to cook our meals while we were there. There is a large kitchen table in the kitchen and then another table in the next room. That room has an exit to the outside, stairs for the second floor, entrance to a first floor bedroom and entrance into a sitting room and then into a living room. We spent a lot of time in the living room which had a fireplace and TV. Again, the views from that room were amazing. Very comfortable couches and very large area. Upstairs were 5 more bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The views from the second floor were even better. There is a deck connecting the master bedroom and one of the back side bedrooms. Just being able to stand on the deck outside and look at the greenery for miles and miles was amazing !! The house is located in Hethersgill which is only a few miles outside of Carlisle. Yes, the house is a bit secluded from the city but that is what makes this house so perfect. We had just left London and wanted to have a place that we could relax and regroup. This house was perfect !! I would recommend getting transportation as you would need to drive. We rented from Enterprise Rent A Car. Everywhere we drove was beautiful. We did see Hadrian's Wall and went into Carlisle to see the Cathedral. Our son's wedding was perfect !! Our daughter-n-law's family lives in nearby Irthington. We will be back and we will plan on staying at the Pointer Dog House again !!!

About the location

CARLISLE

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.
