Herdwick Cottage was the original Granary when the farm was built in the 17th Century. More recently it has been converted into the cosiest of our four cottages.
This consists of a double room with an adjoining bathroom that has a bath and overhead electric shower.
Here you can relax in the lounge area, or prepare your meals in the kitchen diner with its adjacent breakfast bar.
This cottage can be booked individually or as part of Church Court Cottages for larger groups. The courtyard outside is a great area to enjoy good weather and the village offers great walks.
Please contact us for pricing on longer term lets..
Bookings can be taken for one or multiple cottages (offers available).
Herdwick Cottage is available all year round.
The cottage contains a Tv, Dvd, Radio/cd player and newly installed heating. It has a fully equipped kitchen including cooker and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, utensils and crockery. There is also a designated parking bay for each cottage.
All bed-linen and towels are included if required.
Electricity is a seperate account set up by you. Also, we require a £500 refundable deposit per cottage, payable by Bacs before the rental start date, and returned within a week of departure (assuming no charges for damage/extra cleaning or electricity charges etc).
The beautiful village of Gamblesby is a truly rural hideaway, nestled at the base of the splendid Pennine hills, just 10 miles north east of Penrith and junction 40 of the M6. It takes about 20 minutes to drive to the beautiful lake Ullswater and 45 minutes to Keswick. For those interested in the world heritage site of Hadrian's Wall (and who wouldn't be ?) we are within a pleasant hour's drive of some of the best forts and visitor centres. Perhaps less well known, but definitely worth a visit, is the city of Carlisle with its beautiful sandstone cathedral, castle which imprisoned Mary Queen of Scots, and interesting shops and architecture - all just 40 minutes away. A trip to the border Scottish town of Gretna is only 50 minutes.
But there is no need to travel further afield as there is so much to enjoy in our own lovely Eden Valley, named after the gently winding River Eden which flows from close to North Yorkshire all the way to the Solway Firth. Along its banks you will find some memorable walks, sculpture and good fly fishing. In particular Lacey’s Caves just 5 miles from us provides the focus for a fantastic walk for all age groups. The Eden Valley is largely undiscovered by tourists making your walks and drives more relaxed, and shops, tea-shops and visitor attractions more welcoming.
Whatever you like to do during the day, be it cycling, photography, relaxing, or sight-seeing, whether you are with family, friends or colleagues, we are sure we have the perfect location for you to enjoy.
We have several pubs nearby that serve great food and for those bringing their four-legged friends, (many of our local pubs are dog-friendly). There are many local walks for strolling or serious hiking and great scenery for the avid photographer, not to mention the extensive local wildlife, including our own resident hedgehog, barn owl, bats as well as deer, badgers and many more (if you don't mind staying up late to spot them of course !)
Guests are recommended to travel with their own transport (due to the limited village bus service).
