    “My family and I stayed in Cottage 4 in May 21.”

    We were lucky enough to have the cottage for a number of weeks while our new house was ready and we were delighted with the space and surroundings. Carol & Tony were great onsite. Fresh bedding & towels were available and all the beds made up as required. I noticed that the beds were brand new and the sofa so it looks like there have been some updates since the other reviews.

    We were lucky enough to have the cottage for a number of weeks while our new house was ready and we were delighted with the space and surroundings. Carol & Tony were great onsite. Fresh bedding & towels were available and all the beds made up as required. I noticed that the beds were brand new and the sofa so it looks like there have been some updates since the other reviews. To address some of the other points: Yes it is a fishing park, there are a few static caravans further away on the site and the other 5 cottages are reserved for fishing only. This cottage does not allow fishing which is a strict policy and it allows them to keep this space “fish free” in terms of cleanliness. There is no set garden space, its is shared across the back of all 6 cottages so I agree it may be unsuitable for young children if you want them to be able to play outside unsupervised. There were young children with the fishing families though so this is not a child free rental at all. You may have someone fishing at the back of the cottage but we loved watching people fish and got excited when they would catch something big. Everyone there was very friendly. In half term, our children and others played together on the big green space just to the side of the cottages. It’s a gated park so felt very safe and secure. The living room had a huge floor to ceiling window over looking the lake and it was so stunning and peaceful. For that view alone I would go back! Directions to the cottage were provided and there was a faded notice to call a number when you arrived at the gate so they could give us the code. You are in a valley and the phone signal isn’t the best however I think it depends on your mobile provider. I’m with EE and had two bars most of the time. I was working from the cottage and used my hotspot for connecting my laptop. I was able to watch Netflix from my mobile data (slower than downloads at home but we got by). Flies – yes there were a few but no more than if I had my windows open at home. It wasn’t a big issue for us. I got some spray. The cottage has no washing machine however there is one on site, plus a dryer (£3 for a wash – bring your own detergent and £1 for the dryer). The cottage I thought was spacious for a family of 4. Two double bedrooms downstairs and a double and single upstairs. The kids loved sharing the room up there as there was plenty of room to play and they weren’t bothered about the lack of blind at the window. The toilet and sink up there was handy and loads of hanging space for clothes plus plenty of drawers. We loved walking around the lakes. There was plenty of wildlife to see and lovely walks close by. We found a rope swing and my son liked watching the trains from the footpath by the rail track. Highly recommend the Greyhound pub in Cotehill (Emma & Julie were so friendly and we loved the quiz). Beautiful walk by Armathwaite bridge (and a swim if you are brave enough). Silloth wasn’t far for the beach and some good old fashioned seaside fun. It’s a lovely little corner of the world. Great place to set base if you are planning on exploring the local area.

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.
