Pheasant Cottage is a delightful converted barn situated in The Gill hamlet, close to the village of Dalston in Cumbria.

This cosy ground floor property offers excellent, well-appointed accommodation for a small family and is superbly located for access to both the Lake District and the city of Carlisle. Guests enter the property straight into an open-plan living area where a dining table for four people is located along with a well-equipped kitchen and a cosy lounge area with an electric fire, leather sofas, Smart TV and a high-beamed vaulted ceiling.

This open plan space features both modern conveniences and rustic elements such as wooden cottage doors.

Also on the ground floor is the master bedroom; a double bedroom with a sloping beamed ceiling as well as a twin room with children’s bunk beds and a shower room with shower, basin and WC.

Laminate wood flooring is found throughout the property. Outside of the property is a private, semi-enclosed patio area with a picnic bench and beautiful rural views.

The cottage has private parking for one vehicle.

Guests can take a half mile walk to the riverside Bridge End Inn or continue to walk along the River Caldew a further mile to the vibrant village of Dalston where you’ll find a grocery shop, café and a second pub.

The Lake District lies just to the south where the town of Caldbeck, gateway to the Northern Fells, is just a 15 minute drive from the cottage.

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.
