  • “A couple of areas for improvement: - cottage needs a deep clean - we had to clean bathroom and kitchen (including crockery and cutlery, and cupboard shelves) as traces of previous occupants obvious - picture frames, skirtings, tops of door frames, tops of cupboards, light fittings and shades all lined with dust - far too many artificial flower arrangements - all of the covered in dirt - very heavy winter-weight duvets on beds - not good in summer!”


    - despite staying two weeks no offer from owner to give us fresh bed linen or towels mid-stay - no tumble-drier and outdoor washing-line too short to launder and dry what we had ourselves - information about surrounding area very scant, with some of the tourist brochures etc going back to 2008 - we binned the old ones and replaced with 2019 versions - published as a cottage for four so there were exactly 4 forks, 4 knives, 4 spoons, 4 teaspoons etc - having to wash up between every course or drink to be able to use the same knife was a real drag so we bought some cheap cutlery to supplement Seems like owner does the very bare minimum to satisfy her own listing - but, frankly, not good enough for the money.

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.
