    “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.”

    The house is spacious and very comfortable with an extremely well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the outside space and hot tub too. There is ample parking (we had 6 cars between us and all easily fitted on the drive) Fern Lee is well positioned for strolling along the river and into the centre of Carlisle. It's about a 15 minute walk to the train station and a couple of buses also run near the house.

    Thanks for leaving us a great review. I'm delighted that you had such a good time at Fern Lee. It's always nice to get feedback about how well equipped our properties are as we go to great lengths to make sure guests have everything they need. The walk along the river to get into the centre of Carlisle is a great way to travel! Just a short distance where you will find all local amenities including restaurants, bars and shops. Kindest Regards Julie Property Owner

About the location

CARLISLE

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.
