  • “We had a very relaxing week and as it was our first time in the North Lakes area, there was plenty for us to do and see.”

    Cottage is very well equipped and is a real home from home experience. We will happily recommend this cottage to our friends and family

The property

A wonderful character property hidden away within a rural village, resting in between the beautiful North Pennines and the Lake District.

Bring your friends and family to this detached cottage, promising a peaceful break for those seeking to explore this breath-taking countryside or for those simply looking to get away from their daily routine.

The property is very well set up for children and families to enjoy this part of the country.

The accommodation is set over two floors, with the ground floor playing host to a warm and inviting interior, ideal for unwinding after a busy day exploring.

Rustle up your evening meals within a well-appointed kitchen, before hosting the entire family together to discuss the day’s ahead whilst enjoying your meal within the dining room.

Curl up within the sitting room, where a woodburning fire fills the room with warmth, ensuring a tranquil setting.

If you are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the group, you will be delighted with the warming bath tub that awaits you within the family bathroom on the first floor, before retiring to one of the three bedroom, each oozing a simplistic elegance.

From the conservatory area, you can enjoy spectacular sunsets or simply step outside to enjoy the large, safe private garden as well as the countryside surrounding further.

The idyllic setting means that you are a mere stone’s throw away from the local pub, where you can enjoy a sociable beverage or enjoy their superb menu.

Moreover, this area is truly a walker’s paradise, with both Lake District and North Pennines to explore with a number of walks on your doorstep.

Whinfell Forest is close by, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll within the ancient forest before visiting the historic Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill.

Alternatively, venture out to the town of Penrith, where you will find a selection of amenities and attractions including the 14th-century castle.

Rye Brows is a wonderful retreat for an adventurous family holiday.

About the location


Skirwith 2 miles; Penrith 8 miles; Appleby-in-Westmorland 9 miles

Culgaith is a small rural village, located in The Culgaith Parish, between the North Pennines and the Lake District, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between the historical market towns of Appleby and Penrith. There’s a lovely old village church and a splendid pub, The Black Swan, offering hearty food, wines and its own stretch of river for fishing. Just two miles away is the village of Skirwith, with a village green and a beck running through its centre. Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) are close by, as is the market town of Penrith with its sandstone buildings, specialist shops, pubs and restaurants. Hadrian's Wall and the historic city of Carlisle are within driving distance, or why not discover the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks? Culgaith is the perfect rural retreat for a holiday in this region.
