The property

Ideally located for venturing into the Lake District National Park, the beautiful Eden Valley and Solway Firth, is Swallows Nest.

This charm-filled cottage offers homely accommodation for families and friends looking to explore Carlisle and the wider region.

The interior offers plenty of character, with its flagstone flooring in the open-plan living space and its bedrooms resting under the eaves of the roof.

The kitchen is well-equipped, adjoining a dining area and comfortable sitting area with TV and French doors to to your very own, private garden.

The bedrooms comprise a double and a twin, with exposed beams and Velux windows drawing in the natural light from above.

They are served by the shower room, continuing this homely feel, with a gleaming white finish.

This pet-friendly cottage is part of the complex hosting luxury kennels and doggy day care, with a grooming parlour, canine hydrotherapy and a pet bereavement facility on-site.

The accommodation is enveloped by 7-acre grounds, giving your four-legged friends the opportunity to run around and get some exercise in a safe environment.

There is even a nature pond and further meadows to which access is available.

Chickens, geese, ducks, guinea fowl and pea fowl wander the grounds freely and wild rabbits are also prevalent at dusk and dawn.

Out of winter season, you may even be lucky enough to see cows coming to be milked in the dairy farm adjacent, and returning to the fields afterwards.

Armathwaite offers the ideal countryside break, with many walks, canoeing, climbing and other outdoor activities on offer in a wonderful region of the Lake District.

There are two pubs in the village, followed by a Post Office and a convenience store.

The city of Carlisle is less than 10 miles away and offers a lovely day out with the family, with many further attractions to explore.

This scenic location, with beautiful coastline nearby and lovely towns and villages to discover, all add to the appeal at Swallows Nest.

About the location

ARMATHWAITE

Penrith 11 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Armathwaite is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, Eden Valley and the lovely coastline of the Solway Firth. The village has two old pubs, both with popular restaurants serving excellent food, a village Post Office and a traditional village shop. The River Eden runs through the centre of the village, and the area is renowned for its excellent salmon fishing, plus walking, canoeing and climbing. Armathwaite Castle, by the river, is a four-storey Pele Tower, and the 15th Century Church has fine examples of stained glass windows. The Eden Gorge, between Lazonby and Armathwaite, is one of Cumbria's best-kept secrets, and is well worth exploring. The local railway station is a stop on the Settle-to-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and where today many old steam trains still wend their way through some of the finest countryside in Britain. The Rheged Discovery Centre in Penrith is the "largest grass covered building in the country" or you might like to visit Dalemain Historic House, featured in a television production of Jane Eyre.
