Guests will delight in the grounds of this Grade II listed building, situated in delightful countryside on the outskirts of the historic city of Carlisle and only 1 mile from the M6. Newbiggin Hall is steeped in history and was built originally as a pele tower in 1304, a place of refuge from Scottish raiders and feuding border families, providing shelter for humans and animals. Subsequent re building and additions in the 17th and 18th century have created a handsome country house. The location is perfect as a base to visit the Lakes, Carlisle, Hadrian’s Wall, the Scottish Borders and the Eden Valley.
