    • “My family and I received a friendly welcome from the owners Michelle and Adrian. Our first impressions of our accommodation was its size & beautifully decorated. The cottage had everything we could want during our stay and lovely to have provided for us, tea, coffee, sugar etc. A great location to visit the Lakes, Hadrians Wall and Carlise. Our children said it was the best holiday cottage they had stayed in! Would recommend Carleton Mill cottage to our friends and hopefully will be back again one day.”

    • “On arrival to this beautiful cottage i was amazed at the exterior look of the cottage, but then to let my kids go in first and hear them say wow this is lovely dad i then went in with the bags and was totally stunned at the high quality of the finish. It was ideal for our stay literally two mins of the motorway and only ten mins in to carlise town centre. We stayed for 4 nights and on our last day the kids was begging to stay long !!! If only we could stayed one more night and gone to the owners halloween party gutted :( Cant wait to revisit the cottage again, and would highly recommend a stay there!! Thanks Michelle and Adrain Hopefully see you soon :)”

    • “Stayed here for a week at the end of May 2013. All I can say is what a beautiful place. The bedrooms were gorgeous and the beds very comfy. The living area was great. Plenty of space for our little one to run around. The cottage is kept to a very high standard and I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet stay. The Popular tourist spots are all within easy reach of this beautiful cottage.”

    • “When we arrived we were welcomed and shown around the cottage by pleasent folk. The cottage was spotlessly clean and all essentials were available. I think that the location of the cottage being near to the M6 motorway made it easy to travel around. It was also easy to travel to the west coast and north lakes. There are pleanty of local shops, including a large Tesco store within easy reach and the town centre is only a short ride. The outlook at the rear is great to look at when you wake up in the morning and the owners who live adjacent were friendly and happy to help with anything at all. I would not hesitate to book this cottage again.”

Its modern and yet still retains its original character. Conveniently located just off the M6,its only 25 mins from Ullswater and only 4 miles from Carlisle Everything is,towels,cutlery,tea coffee etc We had a problem parking in wrong area and had to be towed out by the farmer next door....Adrian the owner of the cottage,helped despite the pouring rain. In a nutshell....fantastic property,great value,friendly owners and excellent location. Bad points....???????? Absolutely nothing This is a gem of a place and will be returning for sure”

    • “A superb modern barn conversion that is top quality.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Carleton Mill Cottage is a lovely property finished to a very high standard. Located 3 miles south of Carlisle it is convenient for the Northern Lakes and the Eden Valley. Parking is off the access road in a small cul de sac of exclusive properties about 50 metres from the cottage. The driveway to the cottage is narrow so unloading a large car requires careful manoeuvring and with the accommodation being on the first floor some agility is required! On the main road a combined petrol station and Spa Shop is conveniently situated within 300 metres. Overall the place is great with friendly owners and we enjoyed our time there.”

    • “Very clean, comfortable and roomy base for touring North Cumbria and the attractions around Carlisle. Although within a rural setting it is very close to all the amenities of the city. The location is quiet with pleasant views. Would not suit anyone with mobility problems as stairs to the main living area. Owners were polite but unobtrusive and we would happily return to this property in the future.”

Regional Information

CARLISLE Gretna Green 10 miles; Penrith 21 miles; Dumfries 33 miles; Keswick 37 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.
