    “Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Coombes View, it was very comfortable and spotlessly clean on arrival.”

    Very well set up for families and dogs, the field to let ours roam free was excellent. Would suggest saying property has courtyard garden is misleading when it is a car park. Very handy for the property but not private and used by quite a lot of people.

The property

Coombs View is a lovely three-bedroom cottage with beautiful views, approximately one mile from the village of Armathwaite in the Eden Valley. The property has a very high standard of finish with a large sitting room area presenting a beautiful inglenook fireplace, drawing focus into the room, with its aesthetically pleasing exposed stone wall behind. An archway interlinks the open, spacious living room that features a baby grand piano and extra comfy sofa to sink into, a perfect place to rest, surrounded by classic, antique furnishings and enjoy a musical afternoon together with the family. Keep yourselves snug and warm by the woodburning stove or head to the kitchen/diner and sit by the toasty Range cooker while you enjoy an evening meal, so you won't be feeling a chill during your stay. Upstairs there are three lovely bedrooms, one featuring a grand double four-poster bed with wooden detailing and curtains that wrap around, leaving you heading to bed feeling like royalty, there are Velux windows in the bathroom and in the smallest of the three double rooms, letting in lots of light in the day and views of the stars at night, whilst a cot is also available. Outside there is a courtyard area and secure gated on-site parking. This is a very dog friendly cottage with luxury kennels offering doggy day care, and a pet bereavement facility on site, dog bowls and spare leads are available for use. The 7-acre site, off a quiet country lane, offers a secure dog exercise paddock including a nature pond and park benches, perfect for leisurely walks or a picnic, and there are further meadows, as well as a selection of domestic poultry – chickens, geese, ducks, guinea fowl, peafowl – wander around free range. Wild rabbits are also prevalent at dusk and dawn. The village of Armathwaite, about one mile away, has two good pubs and a railway station giving direct access to Carlisle on the scenic Carlisle to Settle line. There are access walks in the surrounding countryside. At nearby Coombs Wood can be seen curious rock carvings in the soft sandstone cliffs. The interesting carvings consist of various faces and a salmon. Nearby, there is an inscription of greater antiquity which is believed to be of possible Roman origin. Most of the forest is a Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site PAWS. There are lovely walks along the river or you can complete a circular walk starting at one of the pubs in Armathwaite, in addition, there are good walks along the River Eden to Armathwaite and Wetheral. Penrith and the Lake District National Park are less than 10 miles away providing plenty of walking and cycling trails, rugged mountains and historic literary associations.

About the location


Carlisle 10.2 miles; Penrith 11 miles; North Pennines AONB 11.3 miles.

The attractive, unspoilt rural village of Armathwaite is ideally placed for exploring the Lake District, Eden Valley and the lovely coastline of the Solway Firth. The village has two old pubs, both with popular restaurants serving excellent food, a village Post Office and a traditional village shop. The River Eden runs through the centre of the village, and the area is renowned for its excellent salmon fishing, plus walking, canoeing and climbing. Armathwaite Castle, by the river, is a four-storey Pele Tower, and the 15th Century Church has fine examples of stained glass windows. The Eden Gorge, between Lazonby and Armathwaite, is one of Cumbria's best-kept secrets, and is well worth exploring. The local railway station is a stop on the Settle-to-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and where today many old steam trains still wend their way through some of the finest countryside in Britain. The Rheged Discovery Centre in Penrith is the "largest grass covered building in the country" or you might like to visit Dalemain Historic House, featured in a television production of Jane Eyre.

Please note one of the bathrooms within the property is a downstairs cloakroom with WC and basin.
