    “This holiday cottage was a very quirky extension to the larger victorian house.”

    It was originally the servants quarters, however, it was a very comfortable home with the modern decor in keeping with the historical features. ...

    It was originally the servants quarters, however, it was a very comfortable home with the modern decor in keeping with the historical features. An added bonus is ample parking just outside the front door with the ability to bring shopping straight into the kitchen. Wetheral is a beautiful little village mainly situated around a village green. The Retreat is very well situated for travelling to the Lake District with lots to do in the local area. Good bus link Into Carlisle with the train station within a 5 minute walk if you want to go further a field. All-in-all a lovely cottage.

The property

The Retreat is a delightful, Victorian-style cottage resting as an attachment to the owner’s home right in the very heart of Wetheral.

Decorated beautifully throughout with exquisite oak furnishings, the property is very light and airy with spacious rooms.

Ideally, this cottage is for two couples or a family of three or four to get together in pleasant, tranquil surroundings and take a break from a busy work life.

You will be impressed by the open sitting room with its sumptuous sofas, period-style features and lovely long views of the well-maintained front lawn.

There is a door at the side of the sitting room which opens out onto a private yard for your personal use, where you can crack open a nice bottle of wine and soak up a summer evening.

The kitchen/diner is fitted with beautiful units and an oven/hob unit built into the grand inglenook fireplace.

Upstairs are fully-furnished, fresh, modern bedrooms and a bathroom, and also for your convenience there are extra storage cupboards at the top of the stairs.

Everything you need is close by; a mixture of shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, along with some of the best attractions.

There is a whole wealth of historic places to visit in the surrounding area including Carlisle Castle, The Prior’s Tower and The Guildhall Museum, which is housed in the upstairs of Carlisle’s only medieval house.

Take a gentle stroll along River Eden in the village; parts of the riverbank here are surrounded by ancient woodlands, including Wetheral Woods, owned by the National Trust.

This well-located cottage is a great base whatever way you decide to make it memorable.

About the location


Carlisle 5.3 miles.

The village of Wetheral lies five miles from Carlisle in the north of Cumbria. With great transport links, Wetheral has a quaint village green and is overlooked by a restaurant, pub, village shop and tearooms, along with the Crown Hotel. A short steep walk takes you past the church and remains of the abbey to the River Eden. To the east, the 19th century viaduct towers above the river with some of the best salmon fishing in the country. Further along the river you can view a wonderful waterfall from Corby Castle, and woodland walks lead to the remains of the caves used in the 14th century. Carlisle – the Border City – is the main shopping, commercial and industrial centre in the northern half of Cumbria, with a museum, historic tours, and plenty of entertainment for you to enjoy at your own leisure.
