The property

Carlisle 6.8 miles. A Grade II listed house situated in the village of Thurstonfield near Carlisle. Wonderfully presented with plenty of character throughout, The Hollies offers a heart-warming retreat for groups of six. After a day of exploring, kick off walking gear and head to the lounge, boasting the original cast iron feature fireplace and exposed beams, this is a lovely spot to settle down for the evening. Move through to the kitchen, equipped with all the essentials for a week away, whilst the dining room is perfect for hosting mealtimes with your loved ones. On the ground floor there is a double and accompanying bathroom, ideal for those with limited mobility, whilst upstairs plays host to a double with en-suite shower room and a handy zip/link super-king-size with a extra trundle for a more flexible sleeping arrangement. Start the morning freshening up in the bathroom before preparing a coffee and relaxing in the garden. After an adventurous day out, be sure to unwind in the hot tub, followed by a few minutes in the sauna before settling down. When you are ready to do some exploring, hop in the car and head into the historic city of Carlisle, where you can see many attractions home to the 15th-century Carlisle Cathedral and the historic Carlisle Castle; the outskirts of the city play host to Carlisle Racecourse and Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre, where even more fun can be had! You are also in easy reach of the beautiful Solway Coast AONB, where the dramatic sand dunes play host to some of the most important habitats in Europe, with a number of viewpoints where oystercatchers, curlew, golden and grey plover, lapwing and knot can be spotted. Further afield, the delights of the Lake District National Park await, including Keswick, Derwentwater and the Bowness-on-Windermere. Plenty of adventure to be had at The Hollies.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


Gretna Green 13.1 miles; Penrith 19.9 miles; Dumfries 36.2 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.
