  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ploughman’s Cottage."

    It was spotless, comfortable and warm. We had everything we needed and the location was perfect for us, being just a few miles outside Carlisle where we have family living and with beautiful countryside and interesting places to visit all around. When we needed a little bit of help the owner was very kind and helpful. We will probably return on the future! Bob and Pat
