  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The house is spacious and very comfortable with an extremely well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the outside space and hot tub too. There is ample parking (we had 6 cars between us and all easily fitted on the drive) Fern Lee is well positioned for strolling along the river and into the centre of Carlisle. It's about a 15 minute walk to the train station and a couple of buses also run near the house.

    Thanks for leaving us a great review. I'm delighted that you had such a good time at Fern Lee. It's always nice to get feedback about how well equipped our properties are as we go to great lengths to make sure guests have everything they need. The walk along the river to get into the centre of Carlisle is a great way to travel! Just a short distance where you will find all local amenities including restaurants, bars and shops. Kindest Regards Julie Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Fern Lee, it was perfect for what we needed."

    Huge house to fit all 20 of us, dog friendly and close to the local amenities. It was great that all rooms had an en suite too for that bit of privacy and the hot tub was lovely

    Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us such a glowing 100/100 review! I'm so pleased you all had a good time at Fernlee. It certainly is the ideal location being close to the town which boasts all of Carlisle's local amenities. The house is perfect for large multi-generational families with plenty of space for all including the smaller lounge/sung for those wanting a little peace and quiet. The hot tub is always a fire favourite for sure. We'd love to welcome you back! Kindest Regards Julie Property Owner

  • "The property is in a great location, 10 minute walk from the train station, close to the football ground and next to a beautiful park."

    A great base if you’re exploring the lakes or heading into Scotland. The house has everything for a large group, plenty of comfy beds and bathrooms. We had a fantastic time for our friends 50th birthday (there were 20 of us) and will definitely be back.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review... 100/100 again! Fern Lee has enough space so you all sit and enjoy a meal together or if you prefer, spend some quite time in the snug with a good book and a glass of wine. The location of all of our large family holiday lets is important to us so I'm delighted that you found everything you needed almost of the door step. We'd love to welcome you back anytime.

  • "Ideal accommodation for a large group."

    Very spacious, very clean, decent furniture, comfortable. One of our group tried the tub but found it a bit cool!. Really enjoyed our stay.

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.
