The property

Brampton 5.6 miles.

Situated in the peaceful Heads Nook in Cumbria is High Rigg Shepherd's Sunset, an enchanting lodge boasting countryside views from the hot tub on the decking.

With easy access to the market town of Brampton and the thriving Lake District National Park, this lodge makes for a perfect base for a couple or solo traveller to explore the area or stay in and relax in peace.

On arrival at the lodge, park your car and make your way through the wooden-fence-lined path to reach your abode for the trip, adding to the naturistic feel in the area.

Climb the step up to the decking and make your way inside to discover a convenient open-plan living space.

Kick off your shoes and relax in front of the TV for a couple of hours while the woodburning stove gently roars in the background.

From here, utilise the kitchen and whip up a delicious meal for your loved one to enjoy at the dining table over a glass of wine, or perhaps take your meals alfresco and admire the views while out on the decking.

Enjoy a soak in the hot tub as the evening draws to a close, and when sleep calls, make your way inside to rest your eyes ahead of an adventurous day out.

In the morning, wake up with a refreshing shower in the sleek fitted shower room, before taking your coffee outside for a moment of relaxation to start the day.

For days out while in the area, head to the nearby Wetheral Priory Gatehouse; once an ancient Benedictine monastery, the impressive building is now a popular tourist destination.

Slightly further afield is the city of Carlisle, home to Bitts park and the tribe tourist attraction a charming park ideal for an afternoon picnic.

Brush up on your history while in the area, the Guildhall Museum and Cumbria's Museum of Military Life both rest within the city centre and make for a fascinating visit.

While you are in the area, be sure to visit the Lake District National Park where you can explore the varying terrains and landscapes including the dramatic Ullswater Lake and Aira Force Waterfall, Windermere, Bassenthwaite and Derwentwater and for those who are more of an energetic type, there are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and watersports on these stunning lakes.

Enjoy a fantastic break at High Rigg Shepherd's Sunset at any time of year.

About the location


Carlisle 10 miles.

The market town of Brampton is the ideal base for exploring Hadrian’s Wall. The town boasts a rich and colourful history going back to the Roman occupation, Border reivers from Scotland and the Jacobite uprisings, plus bonnie Prince Charlie established his headquarters in one of the old buildings in Brampton. In the centre of the town is Moot Hall, which was built in 1817, and now houses the Tourist Information Centre, and there is a large motte to the east of the town, which is 135 feet high and has the statue of the 7th Earl of Carlisle on it. A few miles outside Brampton is Talkin Tarn Country Park. It covers 120 acres of farmland and woodland, 65 of which make up the Tarn, a 10,000 year old glacial lake, fed by underwater springs. Two miles away is Gelt Woods, which is an ancient woodland and RSPB nature reserve and has the River Gelt running through it. Brampton is a wonderful base for exploring this historic and scenic area.
