    • “We have just returned from a week at Otters Holt. If I could more stars I would. Fantastic cottage and we really couldn't find any faults with it. 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”

    • “Nous avons choisi cet endroit splendide pour son confort, la beaute des lieux et la proximite de plusieurs sites touristiques. Otters Halt est tres propre, chaleureux et nous transporte dans la vie champagne anglaise avec ses beaux jardins. C'est un isite enchanteur qui est situe pres de Wetheral. Tous les vendredis, au pub le Fantails, il y a une soirée tapas. C'est une bonne occasion de manger gratuitement tout en sirotant une biere locale. Ce fut un agreable sejour et nous aimerions bien y retourner. La famille Laliberte France”

    • “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 cottage...kids 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.”

    • “Wonderful well equipped cottage !”
    • 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.”

    • “A wonderful retreat.”
    • 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 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.”

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.
