    “The cottage was decorated and furnished to a high spec and very comfortable.”

    We really enjoyed staying there and would definitely stay again. The surroundings were very peaceful and quiet and you could just relax.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Carlisle, overlooking a beautiful fishing lake is this lovely terrace cottage, boasting spacious rooms and peaceful surroundings.

Ideal for a large family or a group of friends who perhaps enjoy a spot of fishing or simply love to be part of a calm and tranquil environment.

Step into the hallway, which leads off into two ground floor bedrooms, perfect for those who are less mobile than others, both presented in a fresh, neutral shade for an uplifting feel.

Next is the lounge, fitted with plush beige-coloured carpet and a large red corner sofa resting adjacent to the wonderful picture window, which showcases lovely views out over the still waters and glorious wildlife, enveloping the cottage.

Spend some quality time curled together with some TV or around the dining table which is positioned in the opposite corner of the room.

The kitchen is neat and tidy with ample equipment, aiding you comfortably throughout your stay.

Upstairs benefits a charming loft conversion with a light and airy feel; a double and single bed, sleeping two or three guests, bright Velux windows and an en-suite cloakroom with a dressing area.

Outside you can enjoy the peace and serenity of the countryside while the town of Carlisle rests just a few miles away offering an assortment of attractions.

Discover the history of its imposing castle along with museums and other historical landmarks.

The River Eden runs through the town which is a delightful spot to enjoy a picnic.

Take a trip across to the Victorian seaside town of Silloth boasting an idyllic promenade for an afternoon stroll, watching the sun set.

Further afield are the wonderful areas of The Lake District National Park and the North Pennines.

Consider a stay at this lovely holiday let and enjoy the local experiences it has to offer.

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.
