    Come and enjoy the natural beauty of this lovely area in total comfort.

Further afield lie Carlisle (60 miles), Edinburgh(70 miles) and Glasgow (65 miles).

    The cottage enjoys an idyllic, South facing position with it's own large garden, and lies within our own farmland with the farmhouse being half a mile away. We would like guests to feel free to walk over the farmland without restriction (pets being kept on a lead near any livestock). Farm tours can also be arranged.

    We also provide guests with a welcome hamper and menu of locally made organic meals, allowing you to order delicious meals which will be delivered to your door.

    Inside we have a cosy sitting room with comfortable seating for six people, and log-effect gas stove for instant heat. T.V, D.V.D player, C.D player, DAB radio, docking system and Wi-Fi.
