  • Amazing cottage for a lovely couples getaway! Didn’t realise how close the river was behind, stunning walks right on your doorstep here. Local corner shop 50 yards away was convenient, and Carlisle restaurants aren’t far away at all. Can’t fault anything about this place.

    First of all I recognise that planning a gathering involves lots of work, including research, and is not without stress. To that end, although you can book instantly, you might want to click on the 'contact host' button to ask questions when you've finished reading....I can help you with a lot: from a wedding reception or other major party to just a family reunion e.g. caterers for dinner (15 to 45 pounds pp) murder mystery (from 300), hot tubs, axe throwing, mini olympics in paddock! Welcome to my family home and principal residence. (I move out when you stay and it's all yours). It is different to most holiday lets in that you will see and benefit from the fact it is lived in. As such, you will quickly feel relaxed in your new home! - important if you are hosting an event. CLIFT HILL With majestic views over the Solway Plain, this grand building provides a captivating base from which to explore the Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall and Southern Scotland Clift Hill is a generously proportioned Edwardian mansion, designed for the last days of servants and built during the first years of the Great War. Long-defunct bell pushes can be found in most rooms, including some bathrooms; a reminder of a bygone era. Relive a time when enormous bath tubs and dressing for dinner were de rigeur. The house is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday with children and grandchildren who’ll be delighted to see hares in the garden in the mornings and startled deer in the overgrown orchard…my children say the house is perfect for hide and seek. Younger parties may enjoy darts, table football in the cloakroom and watching movies with the projector or the possibility of a hot tub after a barbecue at the fire-pit on the terrace. Others may roll up the rugs and put the bang & olufsen on max and dance! HOUSE & GARDENS The building was conceived in 1913 and finished in 1915, designed by the Chance family, who were wealthy merchants involved in the local textile mills (worth a visit). They started building the house on the small hillock opposite but changed their mind and opted for the more solid rock that permits substantial cellars. During my work on the house, I have learnt how much the Edwardians loved fresh air. There is an elaborate venting system that resembles in parts one of those pneumatic tube transport devices. Nowadays I try to keep the air from coming into the house but the eleven fireplaces and forty-four doors often conspire against me. However, the illusion of being outside when indoors extends beyond the air vents. In the handsome dining room, William Morris wallpaper meets wisteria creeping in at the windows, creating an impression of a real and an imagined garden intertwining. The enormous family portrait on the dining room wall was painted by John Walton in 1957. Sharp eyes will notice that he is in the picture, holding a paintbrush. The wonderful fireplace and decor make this a room that can be as formal as you wish, or the perfect size for long board games or late-night poker sessions. In the ground floor cloakroom there is a magnificent thunder box lavatory and large double sinks. Pride in plumbing is a leitmotif of this mini mansion. From the master bedroom with its interesting en-suite bathroom, there is a view on all sides over miles of wide, open landscape, with both the North Pennines and Lake District omnipresent. Today you can enjoy these views just as the original owner, Mr Chance once did. Nothing but nothing has changed! The house once had its own grounds, river, farm, greenhouse, stables and garaging for a multitude of vehicles. The river is approached by deeply sunken steps that are almost tunnels through the undergrowth and after a short hop past the cows you may find the eels and sea trout that my children loved. The cliffs here are particularly dramatic and totally unexpected, formed from an outcrop of very fine-grained, orange-red “Kirklinton” sandstone. Kingfishers live here and, if you are lucky, you might catch a flash of blue as you wade to the mini island at low flow. For large parties, Clift Hill swallows children – you will get just occasional sightings. An old school bell sits on the front porch for you to summon them to supper. Houses like this are familiar to anyone who has ever watched a period drama and being here, in the spacious, elegant rooms, the Edwardian period comes alive. The original teak sink for washing your crystal is still there as are so many other features. If you can work out why there are sliding locks on the outside of so many doors or why there are arches in the interconnecting bedroom, please let me know! THE AREA For walkers, Hadrian’s Wall, a world UNESCO site, crosses 10 minutes from the house and of course, we are a short drive from the Lake District National Park and also the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. An abundance of maps is available. Nearby is the Great Border city of Carlisle, an ancient settlement with Roman discoveries still emerging. The cathedral alone is worth making the journey for, with stunning misericords and a magical ceiling depicting the heavens in midnight blue silk studded with gold stars. In the nearby countryside there are some enigmatic stone circles - including Castlerigg, dating from 3000 BC, which has bracing views of Helvellyn in the background – and Long Meg and Her Daughters, a Bronze Age stone circle near Penrith. For rail enthusiasts, remnants of the days of railway glory are all around, with the old Waverley Line route still available for unofficial exploration just up the road at Kirkandrews-on-Esk, where incidentally is the most beautiful, quite long and scary suspension bridge (max. 5 people). LOCAL HISTORY 1915 context - the year of the house was also the same year the British ran out of Artillery Shells and a huge factory was built around the corner at Gretna for women manufacturing Cordite - Known as the Devil’s Porridge (see museum devilsporridge org uk) The area is also rich in other recent and ancient history, lack of redevelopment means that there is much to see and imagine. With maps you can cross and recross the river Lyne at all the historic fording points - we have found old cart wheels. Great little local walk through private woodlands leading to Hidden River Cafe (amazing full meals), ask for details Clift Hill stands apart, literally and metaphorically, from the other buildings in this area – the house appears on the horizon long before you reach it. All around are the so-called “Debatable Lands” – neither Scottish nor English for many centuries, families simply picked a side. You were either with the Grahams or the Armstrongs, battling for cattle, land and loyalty. PRACTICALITIES Clift Hill is a great landmark, sleeping up to 21 people in beds in 9 bedrooms (one in loft has reduced privacy) and 2 in sofa bed and more by special arrangement (camp beds and tents are an option). The grounds contain a stable, fruit bushes and orchard. There is a fun area adjacent to the driveway with trampoline, zip wire and often a slackwire. The views are of the unspoilt Cumbria countryside loved by Wainwright, and the Rivers Esk, Eden and Lyne are nearby. The local linear settlement of Longtown is unrepentantly stuck in a time warp and not at all twee. You will find the basics here. The hardware shop - John Graham - has those bygone parts you need and is worth a visit. There are pubs in Longtown and neighbouring Smithfield but the best food is just along the river at the Hidden River cafe - a lovely 20 minute bike ride away. MORE ON THE HOUSE HISTORY From auction records at Sotheby’s it is evident that Mr Chance liked his art and no doubt appreciated Ruskin. We have returned most of the house to an appearance that he, William Morris or Burne-Jones might have appreciated if alive in 1915: still lots of oak and proud metal work together with a smattering of stained glass. Many of the artworks on the walls of Clift Hill today are by family members, from portraits through to abstracts. Today, the house is slowly regaining the glowing vitality it enjoyed in the lifetime of its enigmatic original owner. It offers a unique chance to step into the world where servants were on the way out and central heating was on the way in. The original floorplan is retained and the numerous doors and two staircases often make you feel as if you’re participating in a West End farce. Visitors often find themselves congregating in the large kitchen with its Aga, two sofas, and old bell system for the servants still visible. Or playing the piano and singing! For Outlander enthusiasts, film and story sites nearby. Please also look at additional photos and comments on well known social media site under clifthill. Note that airbnb only lets you book for maximum of 16. Please allow extra 35 pounds a night per person for larger bookings, payable separately. Or message me for 5 day + pricing. Please note that NO security deposit is payable when booking. I recommend booking the Sunday ..please ask. Even if you can't all stay the night it gives you a chance for a hearty walk and lunch by the fire and still time for a quiet, if long, drive or train journey. Environmental considerations LED lights throughout, electricity monitors, some recycled paper products, vegan soaps and shampoos. Further suggestions always welcome -------- Airbnb has a maximum booking and pricing size of 16. Dependent on the mix I will take up to 27 but there will be some indoor camping involved as beds sleep 23. Tents in garden also possible. ON TOP OF YOUR QUOTE HERE, for parties above 16, YOU MUST ENTER GUEST NUMBERS TO 16 AND THEN extra people are charged at 35 pounds a night, payable before arrival. Due to valuable nature of possessions in house and the fact that I don't believe in security deposits, i require photo ID from lead booker and recommend that they insure against damage done by any of their guests. Chef prices usually around 25 pounds for 3 course meal. Less for buffet. 6 seater quality hard hot tub hire 250 pounds for 2 night weekend. (435/620 for 2/3 tubs) Dogs can come into kitchen with its 2 sofas but no further. Garden is pretty secure. About TV, I have a physical TV in one bedroom but you can use large monitor in study or projector in sitting room to access all your favourite TV shows over the internet. PLEASE READ HOUSE RULES THOROUGHLY BEFORE BOOKING. I am a super relaxed, accommodating host, but you know best whether the property meets your intended purpose.
    Walk across the field to the river Pick fruit from the garden (apples, plums, berries) Tourism I have a bias towards avoiding people on walks (main paths can be busy) and water. Culture is available too but in our opinion it is not the area's USP! Assuming you are up for exercise there are three great pastimes here: Hiking - bring waterproofs Lake Swimming - we have some wetsuits Mountain biking - bikes are for hire 1. I have lots of maps in the house and in my opinion map reading is pretty essential to avoid the masses on the hills. Hadrians Wall - Birdoswald, Banks, Crags and more Hills around Keswick - hire boat on lake Angle Tarn - hike up the river/waterfall Rydal Grasmere - walk and eat the local warm gingerbread Criffel, Scotland - a satisfying 3 hour climb in good weather if no recent rain Many other easy and hard walks, fitness and clothing dependent The waterfalls are spectacular after rain 2. Derwent water, rydal and bassenthwaite are good lakes for swimming and can be combined with other activities. eg binsey plus bassenthwaite, rydal plus mountain bike. 3. There is biking in the lake district eg grizedale, on groomed trails graded like ski runs. However the better experience (few people, well maintained) is to go to the 7stanes trails in Scotland. Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle all easy access by train or motorway. Shop in England or Scotland within 10 minutes drive - Carlisle or Gretna. Visit the marriage shop in Gretna at the old Blacksmith's. If you like horses there are numerous stables. Blackdyke at 10 minutes is exceptional.
  • A wonderful stay with a fantastic host A true home from home experience The children and adults had so much fun in this beautiful and quirky house Truly recommend it for friends and family gatherings Of note the twin room is not a room but 2 beds on a mezzanine landing on the second floor

    Lauren2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time staying at Roland’s - it’s a beautiful big house with lots of interesting art, working fireplaces and great dining room for meals for big groups and entertaining. We enjoyed walking in the surrounding countryside, trampolining in the garden, the hot tub (NB extra cost and not under cover, which meant we didn’t use it as much as we’d have liked given the February weather - although still worth it for us as the guests really enjoyed it!) and a very cold but refreshing dip in the stream near the house. Roland made us feel very welcome when we arrived, explained how everything worked really fully and was quick to help with any queries or requests we had. I hope to be back next time there’s a big event to celebrate!

    Lindsay2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Moor Row House was our family home. It is a huge place, part Victorian Mansion and part Cumbrian farmhouse. It has bags of character and is a great setting for a get together with family or friends.
    There is masses of space! There is a huge farmhouse kitchen with Aga and a large laundry room. The house has two sitting rooms, one with working fireplaces, games room, orangery, eight bedrooms and five bathrooms (two are ensuite). The house is furnished with older style furniture, but mattresses are all recently renewed. It is not immaculate, but is comfortable and full of character.
    This is a quiet area of a beautiful county. We are situated between the lakes and the sea with views of the fells and of Scotland. Amazing sunsets.
  • A really large family home . Excellent for large families with children. Well equipped and well heated.

    Sra2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic venue for a large group. We celebrated a milestone birthday with our kids and partners. We filled the whole place and found the configuration ideal for couples. The house has great space which allows for discussion and chat round the fire, good seated dining in the kitchen, or competition in the games room. This is an old house which is big with character and charm. Dont expect the place to be spotless, it is clean but not practical to clean every surface in the time to turnaround the place between guests. We left here feeling we had a great event and the house was a major part of a fantastic weekend.

    Kirsty2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We have just today returned from Ians amazing mansion, there were 8 children a baby and two to toddlers, the kiddies loved the amazing space and the piano.. There were 5 couples, so much space to sleep, comfy beds, loads of bathrooms. The kitchen is fabulous, the lounge great and a snug at the back for kiddies.. The games room is a great added extra.. we would have used the conservatory if it was summer.. Very clean loads of kitchen pots pans plates glasses etc... We loved the Arga easy to use. The house was really warm . The hall and main stairs we all loved... We have had a fabulous time and just about to re book..Easy to find and easy to self check in... Highly recommend , it is full of character, Sonia Martin and family.

    Son2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Moor Row is a fabulous, well-maintained and equipped mansion house. We expected faded grandeur, but this wasn’t the case. We were bowled over by the character and condition of the house, especially the huge kitchen with servant bells, the lovely big living room and great games room. The whole house was warm, all bedrooms nice, with lovely clean beds and towels. Great place to stay!

    Andy2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • A great space for larger groups to enjoy a very relaxing and comfortable time together

    Tim2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The house was fantastic, huge and well located for walking in the north lakes. The host responded quickly and offered helpful advice

    James2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant host and great mansion to unwind with every needed amenity. We were a group of 9 travelling back down from hiking Ben Nevis before walking up Pike. The host was very accommodating who responded very quickly to all questions

    Shafiq2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ian's house is perfect for a group of families to enjoy a weekend get together. We had 8 adults and 8 kids ranging from 2-9 and there was plenty of space for everyone. The house is a lot more spacious than it looks in the photos and the bedrooms range from huge to normal size. Linen and towels all nice and clean, beds comfy and modern. The house is a bit rough around the edges so don't expect perfect decor, but it is warm and comfortable and perfect for kids.

    Whether you are looking for adventure or a relaxing getaway, our cosy cabin in the grounds offers a comfortable retreat. With open plan accommodation and the additional luxury of your own private hot tub on the veranda, it overlooks the surrounding countryside and a large pond. After enjoying some of the areas many woodland or riverside walks a warm, welcoming hot tub is a treat to return to. *** Please note - minimum 2 nights only on Friday and Saturday ***
    The Border Esk is only 5 minutes away from the Cabin and features a fabulous walk. Canonbie sits in the “Debateable Lands”; a considerable expanse of land neither under the rule of the Scots nor the English, thus becoming a refuge for all the outlaws in the region. Liddesdale and the land around Canonbie was the territory of the infamous Armstrong Clan, which had the reputation of being the wildest of all the riding families on both sides of the Border. There was also a priory at Canonbie, destroyed by the English in 1542. The stones were used in the building of Canonbie Bridge. A mound can still be seen on its former site.
  • Fab stay at Stuart's, couldn't have been any nicer and more helpful when we arrived. The cabin was sparkling and the hot tub was the best at night looking into the pond with a wee bottle of prosecco! Will be back!

    Alan2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed for 2 nights with my boyfriend as a small break for my birthday and it was brilliant. Stuart was so friendly and made us feel welcomed. Gave us tips on where was good to eat and places nearby. Was easy to find the property and the hot tub was unreal! Would highly recommend :)

    Nicola2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my boyfriend stayed at Stewart's cabin and had the best time. Stewart was a great host in giving us directions when we were lost and making sure we were fine. The best part is the hot tub and the view, would highly recommend to anyone

    Jordyn2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a proper escape into the countryside it’s perfect. Stuart is a great host, will definitely return

  • One of the best airbnbs I've stayed at and one of the largest. Everything about David's place is awesome. If his place is available to book I would book it right away.

    Goodwin2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Richard2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely lovely place. Very modern, spacious but cozy at the same time. Lots of little touches such as tea/coffee/milk left for us and very easy instructions for check in. The under floor heating is a dream. Amazing value for the house. Thanks again x

    Jane2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place just off the motorway. Amazing value for money would recommend.

    Mike2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • I don't understand why and how this AMAZING place could be so inexpensive! It was just me and my wife and to have the entire place to ourselves was just phenomenal. I cannot say anything negative about this beautiful cottage. There is only one thing I can warn you about and that's the Indian restaurant one minute away from the cottage. It's so bland I just ended up wasting so much of my food I purchased for £40

    Rofik2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic cottage! On our way up to Scotland we wanted an overnight stop off and David’s cottage was perfect! Very comfortable, clean and a great location! We will definitely be back if in this area again!

    Our home has all the benefits of being in the city but feels like you are living in the countryside! A GREAT LOCATION I'm sure you'll agree. Carlisle is a lively, safe, small city. It has a university and hence a thriving 'trendy bar' scene. I believe Carlisle has more trees per mile than any other city! With its tree-lined streets, gardens and parks there is always bird song to be heard. This year we have a resident pheasant in the gardens!
  • Fiona was the best host I’ve ever had in my years of using Airbnb! She was so kind, left us an amazing breakfast, gave us great tips and allowed us to use her kitchen to cook. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was soooo relaxing! Her company was awesome and the cats were super friendly :) not sure any stay will compare!

    Melinda2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn't have felt more at home, such a warm welcome and an ongoing genuine interest in our trip (house hunting) and our progress. Super friendly, nothing is too much trouble, our highlight's were the bread, the bath and the wonderful company. Great knowledge of the area for restaurants, shopping, walks and more. Would thoroughly recommend a stay at Fiona's :-)

    Wendy2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great Airbnb experience . Fiona is very social and we were glad to meet and speak with her. She also really respected our privacy but wanted to make sure we had a great time. She was very kind offered us a ride to the train station on our last day. The room is on the top floor so perfect to have privacy. It was very clean and well decorated creating an authentic British experience.

  • Fiona is such a lovely lady , it was a pleasure to stay in her lovely home

  • This is a great find! The bedroom is lovely with wonderful personal touches. The breakfast was beautiful - we could not resist the homemade bread and fresh eggs laid by your own hens. For us it was a chance to get a moment's piece in our hectic schedules and your place provided a rare retreat where we were well taken care of. Breakfast was awesome, as stated and the bathroom was one in a million with so much space. Your lovely sitting room, solely for our use, was also an unexpected touch and it was great to see such a wide range of literature and artefacts from all around the world, alongside a lot of local literature. A very peaceful stay made all the better by our caring hosts. Highly recommended!

    Welcome to Carlisle. You couldn't really get much more central place than our house. This is a ground floor room, at the front of the property, ideally the room accommodates one guest, but it does have a high quality double bed. 2 guests are fine but you can only access the bed from one side.
    Large townhouse in the centre of Carlisle, opposite the old fire station and close to the historic castle. A hotel look and feel, but at a fraction of the cost. A short walk from the shops and night life, a major multi point bus stop and the train station. In the house you have a lovely ground floor room, which is where the communal room and kitchen are also, on the first floor is your bathroom with shower. The house is accessed by a secure lock box, and all personal rooms are lockable. I do not live on the premises, but I can be reached at most times. There are two nice cafes within a minute walk, opposite the house in the Old Fire Station, and down the road at the Gone To The Dogs cafe. Further up town, there are a viarity of cafes and restaurants, or if you prefer you can use the kitchen and make yourself a nice homely meal.
    Our house is located right in the centre of Carlisle, a lovely three story townhouse. There is a 24hour pay and display car park located behind the house, and hour disk zone parking (between 8am-6pm out side these times you are free to park at leisure) a short walk away. Most local amenities are on your doorstep, and can also be delivered right to the door too.
  • Very clean and comfortable, great location. Charming and helpful hosts, thoroughly recommended.

    Katherine2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

  • So wonderful! My flight was delayed and they even offered to come get me from the train station if I needed. Outstanding experience and wonderful hosts!!

    Amanda2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect and comfy room for myself and my dog Jessie. The bed was comfy and the room was quiet. So many places I go to and its noisy but this was what I needed after a long drive. Janette was very helpful and the garden out the back was enclosed for Jessie to run about in.

    Tom2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely place to stay, only required the room for one night as I was attending a close friends wedding. Extremely hospitable and gave me a key to ensure I could get into my room at any time. Offered me tea in the morning but unfortunately I had to rush off. For when I next return to Gretna Green, Janette’s will be the first port of call!

    Josh2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Glad we stayed with Janette and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Was very grateful to use their kitchen after 2 weeks of food on the road. Good company and easy to recommend a stay. Thanks guys!

    This is a clean town house right in the centre of Carlisle. You have your own tea and coffee making facilities and your own cutlery and crockery should you wish to cook. There is free super fast fibre internet. The high street is a minutes walk away. The train station is about 10 minutes walk away. There is free parking in the evenings in the disk zone area. Or a pay and display car park is right behind the house. I do not live on the property but I'm local should you need anything.
    This is a double room on the 2nd floor facing the front of the property.
    The property is very centrally located in Carlisle. Ideal for work or leisure. It's on the side of town away from the night life so its nice and quiet. However shops, dining and night life are between 2 and 10 minutes walk from the house.
  • Marvelous location, not far from the train station! There's several excellent restaurants nearby as well as a large indoor/outdoor pedestrian mall and many locations of historical interest. The kitchen is well-stocked, and it was great to have access to both a washer and drier.

    A twin room in a quiet cul-de-sac, on the Western edge of Carlisle, 1.1 miles outside the city centre (approx 25 minutes walk). The Cumbria Way and National Cycle Network Route 7 run directly behind the house. You’ll love my place because it's in a friendly neighbourhood and it has a countryside view. Also, I will provide breakfast. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, walkers, motorcyclists, cyclists and dogs.
    The room has twin single beds (if you prefer, these can be moved together), a bedside table, drawers and hanging space. The room looks out onto Cummersdale Holmes, which has a riverbank footpath and a countryside path that is regularly used by walkers, dog-walkers and cyclists. We've worked hard in recent years to make a number of minor and major improvements to our home. We're now very proud of it and I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
    This is a terraced property in a suburban cul-de-sac on the Western edge of Carlisle. We are not in the middle of the countryside. However, as we are on the edge of town, there is plenty of countryside right outside our back door. There are riverside walks (alongside the River Caldew) and a country path - shared by walkers, dog-walkers and cyclists - directly behind the house. Please be aware that this property is 1.1 miles outside the city centre (approx 25 minutes walk). Although it is walkable, if you are looking for somewhere right on the doorstep of the city centre, this is not the property for you. Also, please note, if you are walking Hadrian's Wall, the nearest access point is 2.5 miles away. There are no buses that would drop you off directly at this access point and a taxi would cost you approx £7. Shops are 0.6-1.1 miles away (newsagents, Lidl and Aldi supermarkets, Co-op convenience store, takeaways, off-licence, cafes, cash machine). There is an Indian restaurant 0.6 miles away. The rest of the restaurants are in the city centre.

I briefly met Floyd the dog, who was friendly but not jumpy (I’m not really a dog person). I stayed here as a work trip to be close to a local textile mill and it will be at the top of my list if I come again. Excellent value.

    The Shed has been custom built, in the paddock, near my small barn conversion. It has a homely atmosphere, with vintage furnishings and up-cycled items. Where possible I’ve tried to be eco friendly. This is a quiet, tranquil place with beautiful views of the Scottish hills beyond the Solway Firth. It’s part of a small hamlet and my former family farm. Animals are often kept in the fields next to The Shed. You’ll experience stunning sunsets and starry skies.
    The main living area has two sofas and one sofa bed (small double), TV, DVD player and a selection of films to watch and books/games. The kitchenette has a kettle, toaster, George Forman grill, two ring plug in hob, microwave, small slow cooker and fridge with small freezer compartment and plenty of crocks for 4 people. The bedroom also has a small TV.
    It’s a 10 minute drive to the Lake District National Park and the pretty village of Caldbeck. Keswick is a 25 minute drive. It’s 20 minutes to the Solway Firth for bird watching and the start of Hadrian’s Wall at Bowness-on-Solway, 20 minutes to historic Carlisle and another 10 minutes beyond to Scotland. There is a pub, The Sun Inn, within walking distance.
  • Exceeded expectations: The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s small and compact as advertised. However, everything has been considered in regards to making you feel completely at home. I could wax lyrical about how the ‘shed’ has been thoughtfully designed and furnished to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Look no further, it has everything you need..... and more. Attention to detail was second to none. We were met on arrival and left to our own devices, which we prefer. However, we were also made to feel we could approach about anything should we need to do so. We look forward to returning in the summer months and making use of the outdoor space in the warmer weather.

  • Lovely little hide away.

    Susan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The place is just perfect for a getaway. Exactly how the photos look . Super cosy. You have everything you need for a lovely stay and the location is great. Bronwyn was an amazing host. Super friendly and answered all of my questions very quickly. Couldn't fault any of our stay. Will definitely be back one day. Already talked about it.

    Donna2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. What an outstanding place to stay! Beautifully presented on a fantastic plot with amazing views. We visited at the end of Oct and it was very cold outside. But putting the provided gas heater on the rooms soon warmed and it was so snug and cosy. The Hovel House Shed was spottlessly clean and Bronwyn has thought of everything you could possibly need and more. We will be back soon! Xx

    Nichola2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • A cute little hide away with fantastic views (especially at sunset). We had a lovely long weekend here with our dog. Would certainly be interested in returning sometime.

    Chris2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place with loads of thoughtful touches, really enjoyed our stay.

    Rebecca2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little “shed”, certainly not a hovel!. We were very comfortable and enjoyed a restful couple of days, would certainly recommend the area and accomodation

    Patrizia (Trish)2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Bronwyn's communication was prompt, clear and polite throughout the booking and stay. The shed itself is a lovely spot and we wish we had longer to stay. The shed is well-stocked with lots of nice touches; fab big wine glasses, board games, dvds, blankets and a piano! It was a really relaxing space and our breakfast overlooking the cows was so peaceful. I would recommend doing your research on the local pubs for food as we arrived on foot at the nearest one to find they opened in an hour. Lots of other options were a short drive away though. Highly recommend and we had a toddler and small dog with us. Both were welcomed and well accommodated. Thank you!

  • Our second stay at Mandy’s apartment, a really convenient stop off just off the motorway. Lovey space and Mandy was a great host.

    Leonie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately it was a flying visit for us, using it as a stop over on our way North to Scotland, but will definitely be back at some point as it's a lovely spot. A great base for The Lakes, Scottish Borders & Northumbria

    Phil2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely air bnb situated in a nice village with lovely views over the garden. Private access and parking. The apartment had everything we needed and Mandy was really helpful throughout the booking places and recommended nearby places for food.

    Leonie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Mandy's place is a stylish little studio, excellent for a pleasant stay for a couple (or a single traveller). It was immaculately clean, it has a small american style kitchen, a cozy livingroom and a bedroom with a very comfortable bed. We only spent one night there, but I could easily imagine a longer stay, while visiting the surrounding areas (Lakes, Pennines..) there'd be planty to see. We arrived quite late in the evening but Mandy made sure to personally greet us which was really kind of her and felt really welcoming. I can only recommend her listing!

    Carlisle, Carlisle, United Kingdom

    Lovely large cottage on the Hadrians wall trail. Located just 12 miles from Carlisle and Wigton and less than 10 miles from the Carlisle bypass. Approx 25 minutes to J44 M6. This is a dedicated holiday let and is newly refurbished with a large social living and dining area. There are 3 bathrooms, 1 downstairs, one family bathroom, and one ensuite. The cottage is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest on the Hadrian's wall trail.
    This is a large cottage with plenty of space for 6 guests and modern amenities to make your stay very comfortable. The cottage has full gas central heating and a fantastic pot bellied stove with all coal and wood supplied for your stay. The kitchen is a great social space for family and friends alike. There is a private garden with parking. There is also parking in front of the cottage so your stay can accommodate 2 cars if needed.
    The village is an old port and railway town. It has a rich history and with the location is an outstanding place to live and visit. There are lovely walks and plenty to do near by. Visiting Carlisle is a short journey away, and so is the lake district and all the attractions it boasts. There are 2 local pubs serving food. One in the village itself under new management, and one in Bowness on Solway about a mile after the village. The nearest shop is on the holiday park 1/2 a mile before the village, it's open in the mornings 7 days a week and sells newspapers cigarettes alcohol and basic provisions. There is a larger local store in Kirkbride combining a post office, the local doctors is also in Kirkbride. If you need to do larger shopping and you are driving then you pass Asda from the motorway heading towards the cottage.
  • The Cottage on Hadrian's Wall is lovely, clean and very homely. A credit to the host Joe and his family. The pot belly fire was very welcomed and lovely and warm. Communication was very easy and host was available to assist when required. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a comfortable stay away from home. The community was very welcoming, we stayed for three nights.

    Judi2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Just wow! Thanks so much for a lovely stay in your lovely cottage. I couldn't fault anything. What a lucky find! Your thoughtful touches really made it for us! Handwash, milk in the fridge, tips of where to go.... It was immaculately clean! It was quiet. We loved the fire, and you even thought to bring extra coal, which we appreciated! Very cosy and warm, despite Storm Dennis raging outside. Everything was perfect, and we hope to book again on our way to Scotland later this year.

    Beatrice2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic find. Spotlessly clean, cosy and well equipped. Joe was a great host. We had a relaxing stay at the cottage.

    Mel2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Tastefully furnished property in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Joe is a great host and would definitely recommend.

    Callum2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Joe for a wonderful stay. The cottage was perfect. Everything was sparkling clean, comfortable & lots of lovely touches. The fire was superb & the place was lovely & warm when we arrived. Joe is a very generous host & a great communicator. Outstanding hospitality. We had a walk at Glasson Moss & Bowness on Solway. The village is interesting to look around & take in all the history & sights. We discovered a delightful tearoom called ‘Pear Tree Tearoom.’ Our one night stay was everything we could have hoped for. Best wishes Jen & Ken

    Jen2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Joe’s place was stunning, it was so clean and tidy. Check in and communication was easy and Joe always responded quickly. We were welcomed with a fire warming the place which was such a nice touch after a long day of driving. Highly recommend if you are traveling here.

    Kayleigh2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place, really nicely decorated with lovely little touches! Fire was also lit and it was lovely and warm on arrival

    Paul2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Andy and Jean were great hosts. Andy was very helpful in assisting us with directions and also recommended us some places to visit. The property is very clean and has all the required amenities. We found its location handy as we were able to visit the lakes and also few places in Scotland including Glasgow easily. We would definitely recommend this property.

    Ponnu2019-12-29T00:00:00Z

As she would say every time she walked through the door “home sweet home”. Daisy and pip ( Springer Spaniels ) were adorable and very friendly too. Will definitely be back.

  • With its high and grand ceiling and period features, we found Church View to be a very impressive flat. It's also very homely and comfortable, with plenty of lovely touches. It's ideally located in the centre of Carlisle, and while there's a fairly busy road at the front, it's mostly very quiet where the bedroom is located at the back of the flat. Also, noteworthy is the fantastic power shower, and it's nice that there's somewhere to place recycling inside the flat. Carolynn is also an excellent and very polite host. We very much enjoyed our weekend here, and would definitely return in the future. With all of that said, we highly recommend Church View to anyone that may be staying in Carlisle in the future.

    Louise2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

We’ve stayed here twice now and it certainly won’t be the last. We will be staying with Mark & Maura and their furry friend from now on whenever we are in Carlisle. It’s simply perfect! Thanks guys :)

  • This is a beautiful house a short walk from local parks and the city centre. Maura and Mark are so relaxed, helpful and friendly, it was very easy to stay with them. They made us feel very welcome with our dog too. Lovely and clean and careful, thoughtful details. The room was comfortable enough to spend a relaxed evening in too.

    Kerry2019-10-05T00:00:00Z

  • The location was ideal and just 10 minutes from the train station and where I needed to be the next day. Mark made feel very welcome and their were a few nice touches on arrival / access to breakfast in the morning and offers of help with my luggage. My stay was a flying visit so I never got to experience all the hospitality - but I am not surprised that everyone else has been so positive.

Highly recommended, they are lovely, friendly and very helpful, they helped and advised us in everything we asked for. The only drawback for us is that we are not used to sharing the toilet with more than 5 people, although it was only a couple of times we had to wait.

    Orchard Cottage was originally an 18th century 'Solway Plain clay dabbin' farmer's cottage (named after the fruit trees that are still in the garden), now fully restored with many of its original features. It is a perfect cosy getaway for those wanting to explore the Lakes, Hadrian's Wall and other highlights of this beautiful county. It is a great base to sample the many delights Cumbria has to offer.
    The cottage was built in the early 18th century from local clay with a crook frame, and large inglenook fireplace - many of these original features were retained when the Cottage was restored in the mid 1990s. The dining room, bathroom, kitchen and sitting room with the bedroom beyond all lead off the wide entrance passage. All rooms are on the ground floor, with two shallow steps up to the front door, and one step down from the entrance passage into the kitchen. The original reed ceiling of the dining room was removed to give a spacious feel, and a clear view of one pair of the original crooks.
    Thursby is a quiet village only 6 miles west of the border city of Carlisle, just off the A595 bypass. The village has a pub - The Ship Inn (which has free Wi-Fi), the parish church St Andrew's, Thursby Primary School, a Methodist Chapel and a well used Parish Hall. A first class football pitch, adjacent to a children's play area, will be officially opened on 1 July 2017. There are a variety of shops and supermarkets in Carlisle, Wigton and Dalston - all within a ten mile radius.
  • If you are looking for a comfortable, well equipped, spacious place to stay in this area, then look not further! The warmest of welcomes, everything you could possible want and the most delicious home baked goods await you at Orchard Cottage. We loved our short but very sweet stay and would highly recommend this property!

    Sharon2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Had a relaxing stay in Orchard Cottage. Peg was a great host! Enjoyed the fresh milk, eggs and cakes! Although it was stormy weather, the cottage was a nice and cosy retreat from the outside elements.

    Gareth2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had an excellent stay here for New Year’s Eve. The house is surprisingly large and very well kitted out with a very cosy feel. When we arrived there was milk in the fridge and baked goods on the table which made us feel very welcome. Location wise it couldn’t have been much better - we were 30-40 minutes from Hadrian’s wall where we’d been before and less to the North Lakes where we ventured next. Couldn’t recommend this place more and we hope to return!

    Richard2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the cottage last year for Christmas and found it to be so relaxing and the perfect base for walking the lake district; so much so that we decided to come back again which is a rarity for us to stay in the same place twice. The cottage itself is lovely with everything you could possibly want with lots of thoughtful touches which make it the perfect place to hang out even on a rainy day. Ultimately Peg is a host that will ensure you have everything you need and more with enough personal space and peace and quiet to swing a cat!

  • Lovely hosts. Wonderful cottage. The fires kindly lit in advance of our arrival to welcome us. Freshly laid eggs from the chickens, delicious. So pleased we visited Carlisle castle and the military museum, we both enjoyed it.

    A large traditional terrace, sleeping up to 9, only a short walk from the City Centre with 5 bedrooms (all with smart TV) over 3 floors. Bathroom with shower to the 1st floor. Fibre WiFi covers the whole house.
    To the ground floor there is 1 double bedroom. To the 1st floor is a single and 2 double bedrooms. The final double bedroom is in the attic. All bedrooms come with wardrobe, drawer space and smart TV. The 1st floor bathroom had an electric shower over the bath. There is a second WC with hand-wash basin. The large Living/Dining Room has comfortable seating for eating, relaxing in front of the TV or enjoying the comprehensive WiFi coverage on your phone. The recently refurbished fully equipped kitchen has everything you'd need to prepare and cook a Gourmet Sunday Lunch. The kitchen also has a washer, dryer and dishwasher for all your laundry and cleaning needs. There is a fully integrated fire alarm system with emergency lighting and a CO Detector wherever there is a gas appliance. There is also a 2kg Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher and Fire Blanket in the kitchen. The sunny enclosed backyard comes with a picnic bench.
    The "Great Border City" centre is only a short walk away, as are the Tourist Attractions, Green Spaces, Supermarkets and Entertainment. Carlisle existed long before the Romans arrived in Britain and sits on The Roman Wall, a "World Heritage Site". We have been fought over by Scots, Romans, Vikings, Normans and Scots again. We have a proud Religious, Industrial and Military history, all of which can be experienced within a short walk of each other at Carlisle Cathedral, Tullie House (museum) and Carlisle Castle. There has been religious activity at the site of our 900yr old Cathedral for well over 1000yrs. As Carlisle Castle approaches its 1000th birthday, it still holds the title of the most besieged Castle in Britain and once held Mary Queen of Scots as prisoner. Be sure to locate "The Licking Stones" in the dungeon when you visit. If you are a Lord of the Rings fan you could visit Kingmore Nature Reserve North, for a walk and see the area where the "Greymore Ring" was discovered in 1817. The ring now resides in the British Museum and is believed to be the inspiration for JRR Tolkien's ring. Kingmore Nature Reserve follows the course of one of the country's great railway lines, which for over 100yrs carried passengers between Carlisle and Edinburgh. The Waverly Line was so called because it ran through the romantic and beautiful countryside immortalised by Sir Walter Scott in his "Waverly" novels. We are home to the world famous Carr's Water Biscuits and make millions of Ginger Snaps and Custard Creams every year. While you are wandering around the city centre try and locate the clock tower. It only has 3 faces; East, West and South. Legend has it that there's no North face because the man who donated it to the city would not give the Scots "The time of day". All this sight seeing can be tiring so why not seek refreshment in one of the the pubs that was nationalised by the Government for 57yrs between 1916 and 1973 under the "State Management Scheme". They were nationalised during WW1 to aid the war effort by combating drunkenness among the munition workers. Located close to the University of Cumbria, we have been used by: - Families looking at the University. - Couples/families on "City Breaks". - Those who are just passing through on their way North or South. - As a base to explore The Lake District (World Heritage Site) or the Scottish Borders to the North. - As a resting point for those walking Hadrian's Wall (World Heritage Site). - Contractors on short and not so short contracts. - Cyclists passing through on various routs.
  • CJ was very helpful all through the stay. The house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The TVs in each bedroom was great. Well equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook a good meal. Would highly recommend

  • Claire’s place was really nice and clean. I was one of the first people to stay at Claire’s and Clair and her husband went out of their way to make me feel welcomed and make sure my stay was outstanding. Thank you for everything and I look forward to staying there again when I am in the area.

    The apartment is light and airy with lovely views of the Lake District fells and surrounding countryside. It is fully equipped for self catering and recently refurbished throughout. There is safe private parking visible from the apartment. There are lots of local pubs and cafes nearby together with a long established restaurant next door. Although we are in a rural relaxed location we have all amenities needed with friendly hosts living on site to assist with anything. There is free WiFi.
    Close to the Lake District on the A595 we are an ideal location for tourists visiting the area or Scottish borders. Next to a well established restaurant you can enjoy a meal or the apartment has full catering equipment if you prefer. There are plenty of walks and the picturesque village of Dalston just 2 miles away.
    Close to the charming village of Dalston and the Lake District. Local amenities within walking distance.
  • I think I'll stay a long time if the transportation is convenient.,The house is small enough for one person. It's very clean, and there's a nice Indian restaurant, mango tree, really good Indian food! The landlord is really a good person, who likes and takes care of my son. Thank you very much. I will eat Indian food when I have time. Good luck to you.

  • We had a lovely stay. Happy with the accommodation, and very friendly people!

  • Don’t expect what is on the box, look outside and you will be very pleasantly surprised the kindness, care and nothing was any bother, highly recommend.

  • This flat wins hands down on location. It is on the A595, which is the main arterial route from West Cumbria to Carlisle ....... so if you want a quiet, secluded countryside property, this isn't it ....... but where it is, it's excellent value for a property with separate bedroom and a full kitchen/living room. I was there for a work related course and would stay again.

    Heather2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly host. Handy shop and an Indian restaurant handy. Next to the main road.

    Prasad2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Susan was very helpful with our last minute booking and request for a Cot. Great place for our 10 month old baby to crawl around in. Child friendly as we could shut the door to the stairs so no way she could get down them. Got to help feed the chicken which she loved.

    Amy2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, lovely host with nice additional touches to help our stay be totally relaxed

    Fiona2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
