It's located 10 minutes from M6 so the whole Lake District is on your doorstep Very peaceful and quiet even though next to the A69. Village with cafe, shop. Pub that serves food all within walking distance. Garden with hot tub and fire pit is lovely. Cottage has two log burners and very well appointed”

    • “First international trip from Canada for two years and we booked this wonderful cottage for an extended stay for 10 days. The location was perfect for us which allowed us to plan trips to Ullswater in the Lake District, Keswick and Caldbeck. Enjoyed walks around Hadrian wall with days trips to Edinbrough, Newcastle and Carlisle. With the length of trip we really got to enjoy cottage life enjoying the good weather, the wonderful garden and the hot tub. Cottage was great too. Everything is new, immacutely clean and in good working order. We really were spoiled and the bedrooms have the most comfortable beds and great ensuite bathrooms. We stayed in the room with the great window view overlooking the river eden. We enjoyed the space it was great to have family and friends around and visit. Also check out the crown hotel pool and leisure facilities in nearby Wetheral that come free with the loved that. The pub just up the hill the queens arm has the best beer garden and great food. Has great reviews too. Great prices and beers. This place ticked all the boxes for us and would love to return in the future. Would recommend this place without hesitation to other people especially longer stays like us. Love the place so much we will come back and spend more time on the Scottish side of the border...enjoy...Otters Holt is a must and really made our vacation.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed at Otters Holt for a weekend break as a family of four adults and two small dogs. And what a wonderful well equipped cottage, it has everything you need for a relaxing stay. A lovely large well cared for garden with a hot tub in a secluded part of the garden which we found very relaxing after a walk to Wetheral and back. Even though the cottage is next to the bridge there is very little noise and open countryside to the rear of the garden. A short 10 min walk to Warwick on Eden is a pub the Queens where we enjoyed a meal and a drink. The bedrooms are en suite and extremely comfortable providing a great nights sleep. I would thoroughly recommend Otters Holt for a family or group of friends, John & Katy.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A tranquil spot by the River Eden, and luxurious feeling cottage, which did its job of making you feel like it is better than your own home! Beautiful garden for the kids to run riot, and the hot tub in a quiet spot of the garden added to a very much needed and relaxing break. There's plenty of space to lose yourself and hide away and the facility to use the spa (free of charge) at the Crown Hotel was the cherry on the top. We had a cracking meal at the Queen's Arms and the Crown does afternoon tea to top off a lazy afternoon. Generally, comfortable, welcoming and well located.”

    • “A lovely week with my wife, 2 year old and grandparents, The cottage is clean and feels like a boutique hotel, the kitchen diner is a lovely area for the 5 of us plus guests. Our bed was very comfy. The garden is a great size with a great view and the hot tub under the stars was lovely. Hadrian's wall is a short drive away as is Carlisle. We had one meal at the Queens just up the road (top end pub grub) We will very happily be going again.”

    • “This cottage is beautiful, extremely well equipped with great attention to detail. Very spacious and the hot tub was superb. Would definitely book with Sykes Cottage again .”

    Mrs Wallbank, Accrington, November 2018

    • “We all six of us loved Otters Holt, warm, cosy and the Fizz was really welcome. The owner Diane dealt with our only problem within half an hour,The fire starters among us (THE MEN) played nicely with the fire pit but we declined to use the hot tub in November!!! All in all another truly brilliant property with Lakes Cottages.”

    Mrs Close, Peterlee, November 2018

    • “Big clean cottage with all that you could need. Lots of nice touches with all the linen, prosecco on arrival, clean fresh hot tub, clear instructions with how to use appliances etc so it was really easy to get settled. Very close to local shop and fuel station. Short drive to large Tesco store. Lovely easy stay.”

    Miss Clayton, Nantwich, October 2018

    • “Would benefit from lights in back garden, hard to use hot tub in dark, also hot tub needs a pulley to put cover on and off as its very heavy. Other car kept parking next to the house so made it difficult at times when we had 2 cars there to get out. House gorgeous, quite noisy from road traffic but would go back.”

    Mrs Dootson, BLACKPOOL, September 2018

    • “Otters Holt was just perfect for our family holiday.The accommodation was spotless and very well maintained and is extremely spacious. All the appliances in the kitchen were very modern and of a good quality. Attention to detail was lovely even down to a torch and a great selection of books and games. Loved the numerous bathrooms particularly the rain shower in the utility room. Our dogs loved the garden but a fence or gate would have been welcome as they could easily leave the back garden and potentially get onto the busy main road at the front of the property. My daughter parked her car across the back access to prevent this from happening but our spaniel could still go over the garden area where the rotary clothes is. Anyone staying with dogs be vigilant. Beautiful garden with many aspects to it. Lots of apple, pear and damson trees. The owners are happy for you to pick the fruit when it's ripe. So my granddaughter and I were busy picking apples and pears on our last day. The hot tub was beautiful. Having lights around the hot tub area would have been useful as it was a little tricky getting out and finding your towels at night time. It was in a lovely location to enable us to visit the lakes, just a stones throw from the M6. A lovely pub was close by serving great meals and a co op about 15 minutes walk away. We used the facilities at the leisure centre which is part of a hotel, it was free because we were staying at Otters Holt. Well worth a visit. Great swimming pool, gym, sauna and steam room. A lovely holiday, we highly recommend staying at Otters Holt.”

    • “This is the nicest place ive ever stayed so much room and bedrooms and bathrooms amazing.Garden area and hot tub lovely”

    Mr Hailey, Lowestoft, July 2018

    • “A beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean and all the facilities you need. The garden is stunning and loved chilling in the hot tub. I will be coming back to this cottage I’m pretty sure of that.”

    Mr Woodcock, Wigan, June 2018

    • “Cottage was amazing, rooms were very spacious and extremely comfortable. The garden was well used, especially the hot tub and fire pit. There was everything in the cottage you would need, toiletries, hair dryers in all rooms, even tin foil and baking paper etc... We were contacted on arrival to make sure everything was OK. There was even a welcome bottle of bubbly, which was a very nice touch. Only thing needs altering on write up is that now you can't access the river from the cottage. I would definitely recommend Otters Holt cottage, and would look at going back again some time.”

    Mr Bradley, Wigan, June 2018

    • “Great location, facilities 1st class. The garden was exceptional very nice family area. One very small negative is no champagne flutes.”

    Ms Clark, Glasgow, May 2018

    • “This was a beautiful property, and was ideal for 3 couples. I would stay in this property again”

    Mrs Chamberlain, ULVERSTON, March 2018

    • “We particularly asked if the garden was totally enclosed to allow our dog to be safe. We were advised it was apart from a small gap that could be blocked by the bin.. This was not the case there was a length of about 5 meters that was not fenced. This was very disappointing as we were next to the A69.”

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.
