    “Only thing I found was the hold down bar for hot tub would not stay up while in hot tub was in use, very much a hazard if trying to relax and all of a sudden the bar comes crashing down onto your head.”

    But everything else spot on very happy with the accommodation

The property

Armathwaite 2.5 miles. Encapsulated by the peace and tranquillity of Cumbria’s countryside in High Hesket near Armathwaite is 36. This delightful, dog-friendly holiday lodge benefits from a spacious and open-plan interior completed by three bedrooms, a decking with hot tub, and boasts a fantastic location close to Carlisle, Penrith and the fun-filled Lake District National Park; the perfect choice for small families and friends looking to explore all Cumbria has to offer. After a day full of exploration, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and unwind on the plush sofas in front of the Smart TV and gentle warmth of the electric fire. Watch on from the comfort of the sofas as the designated chef of the group cooks up a storm in the fully-equipped kitchen; sample the fruits of their labour at the dining table before heading outside to appreciate the beauty of the countryside from the bubbling hot tub. Watch as the stars fill the sky overhead before heading inside to freshen up in the shower room ready to slope off to sleep in either the double with en-suite or the two twin rooms. If you can tear yourself away from this dwelling venture into the nearby village of Armathwaite where you can stock up on all your self-catering essentials at the local store or enjoy a well-earned break from the kitchen with food at The Dukes Head Inn or Fox Pheasant Inn. The historic city of Carlisle is easily accessible by car and houses the breath-taking 12th-century Carlisle Castle, Carlisle Cathedral and the fascinating Museum of Military Life, there is also an array of bars and pubs for those seeking vivid nightlife. Venture into the Lake District National Park for a whole host of walking and hiking trails around stunning lakes like Ullswater, Haweswater and Derwent Water and up peaks like Skiddaw, Carrock Fell and Helvellyn which all offer spectacular views across Cumbria. All this and more awaits at 36.

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

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.
