Description

Heggle House is a beautifully presented adjoining cottage and set in a courtyard with another holiday cottage. Heggle House was refurbished in 2018 with high quality finishings, and the open plan living space makes it ideal for everyone to enjoy. Downstairs is delightful with a wood burner while upstairs is just as welcoming with comfortable beds and a Jack ’n’ Jill bathroom from one of the bedrooms. Heggle House is set in peaceful open countryside and whilst it is ideal for couples, it is equally ideal for families. It truly is a fantastic home from home! An annexe connected to the property by a connecting door sleeping up to two guests can be booked along with the house, if you are interested please call for prices.

There is lots to explore in the area and right from your door you can enjoy peaceful walks in the surrounding Caldbeck Fells, or for the more adventurous, Blencathra is within walking distance. Alternatively, bring your bicycle - you will probably not meet a car for miles. Situated only 3 miles form the the charming little village of Hesket Newmarket, why not visit the microbrewery, one of the first in Cumbria, which produces one of the widest ranges of real ales in the county? The village also has a shop and pub.

A 30-minute drive away is the pretty market town of Keswick which offers a wide range of attractions for visitors, from lovely niche shops to an abundance of cafés and restaurants. Keswick is also one of the main centres of outdoor activities in the UK so those looking for that adrenalin rush won’t be disappointed. So whether you are looking for that peaceful, relaxing holiday or a little more adventure, Heggle House is the dream location. Beach 27 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

About the local area

Located high in the Northern Lakes on the northern fringe of the Lake District National Park lie the ancient fell villages of Caldbeck, Hesket Newmarket and Uldale. This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored.

This area is rich walking and cycling country, with breathtaking local peaks such as Skiddaw and Blencathra, old mine trails and picturesque limestone gorges with waterfalls waiting to be explored. It really is a place to `get away from it all' but is also within comfortable reach of Bassenthwaite, Derwentwater and Ullswater lakes.

The renowned Mae's Tea Room and Gallery in Uldale is open throughout the year, serving tasty home cooked food through the day and some evenings and exhibits paintings by local artists. 

Enjoy a tipple and some lovely pub grub at Emily's Black Lion - a traditional, family friendly village pub nestling on the Northern fringe of the Lake District in the lovely village of Ireby.

Named after the `cold beck' which runs through the village, Caldbeck was once an important centre for lead mining and corn and woollen milling. The old mines have long since blended back into the dramatic landscape and the mills are now craft workshops and a locally well known restaurant called `Priests Mill'. At the centre of the village is St. Ketingern's church dating back to 1112.

Just down the road is Hesket Newmarket, a pretty village set around a wide green with a canopied market cross. Hesket is also known for its tiny brewery which supplies several local inns within the area.
