    • “A luxury break in Cumbria”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed in the Heavenfield apartment for 4 nights in between Christmas and New Year. The apartment was a very good size and had everything you could possible want. The furniture and fittings were a really high quality and although modern fitted in well with the period and style of the building. The key code entry system worked no problem, although we did find the main door open on a couple of occasions the second door was always locked tight. We spent our days exploring the surrounding areas and the apartment was a really great place to come back to in the evenings, really warm and homely. I would say that you do need a car if you stay here as the roads immediately around the house are narrow country lanes (as you would expect) but within 10 minutes you reach major 'A' roads and motorways. Just a couple of negatives: the bed was uncomfortable for us but that doesn't mean that it would be for anyone else, I'm sure it would be impossible to find a mattress that suited every guest; also I think the bathroom of the apartment upstairs was directly above our bedroom as we could very clearly hear it been used during the night but I guess there isn't much that can be done about soundproofing in an old building. The positives of Staffield Hall far outweigh the negatives: It's in a great location for exploring the Lake District and even the Scottish Borders; the house and grounds are beautiful; we instantly felt 'at home' there and you'll find it very difficult to get that much luxury in that price range anywhere else in Cumbria.”

Regional Information

KIRKOSWALD Penrith 9 miles; Carlisle 18 miles. The delightful rural village of Kirkoswald is situated in the Eden Valley and is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District and the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Kirkoswald has two excellent pubs, both serving fine quality food, a 12th century church and a shop and Post Office. The River Eden runs nearby and the area is renowned for its superb trout and salmon fishing, along with walking, cycling, canoeing and climbing. There are literally miles of glorious paths following the river's course, with welcoming spots for riverside picnics and sightseeing. Expect caves and gorges, and look out for the ten unusual benchmark sculptures along the way. The Eden Gorge, between Lazonby and Armathwaite, is one of Cumbria's best-kept secrets, and is well worth exploring, plus the local railway station is a stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain. Brougham Castle, Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England), Hadrian's Wall, the town of Penrith and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away. The stunning scenery of both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks are within reach, making Kirkoswald a convenient place to stay.
