    “Fantastic,cosy place in a great countryside location, easy to get to anywhere within the lakes.”

    Very private with off road parking which was great. We took our dog who settled great and was fab to see the owners had taken this into consideration and left him a bowl of water for when we arrived (great when unpacking car saving us hassle of searching for bowls straight away). Fish and chips in the town where amazing. Will definitely stay again.

The property

Hillside Hideaway is a semi-detached house located in Wigton, in the beautiful county of Cumbria. This stunning sandstone property sleeps two and allows parking for one car, making it the perfect retreat for couples and a furry friend looking to escape city life. Be welcomed into a spacious kitchen/diner fully fitted with everything you need to whip up your favourite meals. In the next room, you’ll find a lounge furnished with a plush sofa and armchair, ideal to cuddle up on when watching your favourite shows and movies. On early mornings, watch the sun rise with a steaming cup of tea from the conservatory, and on warmer days make use of the small seating area on the private patio. As the day winds down, head upstairs and de-stress in the spacious bathroom and its walk-in shower, then catch your rest in the inviting double bed. Venture out to the local town of Wigton to find various coffee shops such as The Barista. You’ll also find a high street with all the shops and cafes you need to make your stay a convenient one. A scenic drive will take you to the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its rich heritage, fascinating wildlife and birdlife. Pack some lunch and picnic on the smooth plains of sand overlooking stunning views of the Solway Firth, take in your surroundings while hiking through South Solway Mosses National Nature Reserve or take a stroll in Finglandrigg Wood which looks like a white wonderland if travelling in winter. Within driving distance you’ll find the famous Lake District National Park and all the beautiful towns and villages it has to offer such as Keswick. Get a taste of history at Keswick Museum, for more unique entertainment head to Puzzling Place and try to make sense of its optical illusions, and if you’re lucky enough, catch a show at Theatre by the Lake, one of the world’s most beautifully situated theatres on the shores of Derwentwater. Make long-lasting memories at Hillside Hideaway.

About the location

WIGTON

Carlisle 12 miles; Keswick 20 miles.

A traditional Cumbrian market town with a charter granted in 1262, which still holds a market each Friday in the covered market hall, along with an open air car boot sale which is held at Silloth. Wigton is a popular centre for shopping, pubs and restaurants, and also boasts a theatre, bowls, swimming, tennis and other sports. Lord Melvyn Bragg was a native of Wigton, and used the town (called Thurston in some of his writings) and the surrounding area as the setting for his novels including ‘A Time to Dance’. Located 18 miles from Penrith it is a good base for the attractions of the North Lakes, the cathedral city of Carlisle, 12 miles away, Keswick, just north of Derwentwater and close to Lake Bassenthwaite, and the natural beauty of the West Cumbrian Coast. Hadrian’s Wall is within 25 miles, while the Scottish Borders, and Gretna Green, are within easy reach.
