Description

The Park is a charming detached cottage, very easily accessed from the M6, making it ideal for those who want to explore the Lake District, the great border city of Carlisle, Hadrian’s Wall and Scotland. The Park is at the north end of the beautiful yet lesser known, peaceful Eden Valley. There are fantastic quieter back roads for cycling, excellent golf and fishing on the River Eden. With character retained throughout, including original parquet floors and a cosy wood burner, this cottage has been finished to a good standard. A large enclosed garden and orchard front the house and the owner’s farmland backs it. Nearby are the wonderful Northern Fells which are featured in a lot of Wainwright’s walks including Blencathra, Carrock and High Pike. These are ideal if you want to walk with truly stunning views but not have the crowds of the Southern Fells.

About the local area

Carlisle's modern city centre has a rich heritage; a wonderful combination of culture, history and the great outdoors. It is surrounded by acres of parkland and has some of our finest countryside right on the doorstep.

This great border city has had a turbulent past, leaving a legacy for today's visitors to experience. Carlisle Castle was founded in 1092 by William the Conqueror's son and became one time prison to Mary Queen of Scots. Later it was captured by Bonnie Prince Charlie during the ill fated Jacobite rebellion of 1745. Other places to visit include Carlisle Cathedral and the award winning Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery.

Nearly 2000 years ago Emporer Hadrian built Hadrian's Wall, stretching coast to coast, marking the northern boundary of Roman Britain. Today it is a World Heritage Site with a National Trail Path that allows walkers to travel along its entire 80 mile length; a great way to discover more about the region.

So if you're looking for secluded country walks, city art galleries, forts and museums, Stately Homes and castles, you'll find it all here!
