A rural retreat in historic parkland

This listed property has been created from a barn and two cottages. The house has been thoughtfully decorated in warm, neutral colours and is carpeted throughout, apart from the kitchen and bathroom areas. There is plenty of space with three different rooms to sit and do your own thing and a large dining room which allows you all to come together for meals. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances and has an Aga for a traditional feel. Sleeping accommodation comprises six double / twin bedrooms, one single and five bathrooms. There are plenty of things to do both in the house and locally. Dogs are welcome.

We may not be in the Lake District or in the better known holiday destinations but our proximity to the M6 and M74 mean that there are few places of interest in Cumbria, Northumberland and Southern Scotland  which are not readily accessible. Please see Information for a comprehensive list of places to visit and things to do
