The Woolshed is tucked away in the magnificent Eden Valley, and surrounded by 55 acres of beautiful organic farmland which are yours to enjoy. It is ideally placed for walking and cycling in the Eden Valley and the nearby Lake District as well as exploring Hadrian's Wall. Wildlife abounds and wild flowers blossom in June in the traditional hay meadow.

This sensitively restored holiday let is set well across the cobbled yard of the owner's 17th century farmhouse and has its own private garden with garden furniture and BBQ. It has been sensitively restored to provide very spacious and comfortable accommodation for four people and has two cosy woodburners in the two living rooms, fuelled by our own coppiced alders. The views across the Pennines and Lakeland Hills from either side of the Woolshed are spectacular. Approached down a one mile leafy track.

Saunter round the farm, fish or picnic on the Croglin Water. Look out for red squirrels, barn owls, deer and curlew or venture into the rolling countryside of the Eden Valley. Great footpaths, cycle paths and bridleways. A local guide can be provided.

Take a trip to the nearby Lake District and have a day out walking or visit Keswick and see a production at The Theatre by The Lake or visit their literary festival, Words by the Water. Lots of maps and information available.

A wonderful place for a tranquil rural escape with lots of space inside and out, and magnificent grass tennis court, table tennis, table football, croquet. The Woolshed is well equipped for self catering but supper can be provided by arrangement, food is home cooked and sourced locally where possible with seasonal choices. Wine list. Short breaks welcome and bed and breakfast can be arranged. Wonderful place for a full holiday or a break en route to Scotland. Suitable for couples or families. No other holiday accommodation on site.

Great place for either an activity holiday - lots of wonderful quiet roads and tracks for cycling - masses of walking locally or in the nearby Lake District. Plenty of interesting sites nearby, lots of local information available. Alternatively some guests have chosen to stay put for the week, enjoy the peace and tranquillity and the immediate setting and the comfortable accommodation. Good for birdwatchers, wildlife and star gazing (dark skies). Good walk to local pub.

Breakfast Hamper left on request ( bacon, sausage, free range eggs, bread butter all locally sourced and produced), price on request. ,

The Cumbria region

The North of England is bordered by Scotland to the North (Edinburgh 1 hour 15 minutes by train from Carlisle), Northumberland Coast to the East with its wonderful sandy beaches, moorland and castles and by the Irish Sea to the west. It is a spectacular part of England encompassing wild landscapes, The Lake District and the Pennine Region, rich in wildlife and heritage with small market towns, historic houses, good pubs, fast flowing streams and mellow valleys.

Eden Valley

Croglin is situated between the Pennine Hills and the Lake District in the Eden Valley. The Eden Valley is a destination in itself and is one of England's least populated and most unspoilt landscapes. It has wonderful opportunities for walking on quiet and beautiful footpaths, cycling quiet lanes, visiting historic houses, stargazing. It is in easy reach of Hadrian's Wall, a great attraction for families, The spectacular Lake District with all it has to offer and the wild walking of the pennines. There is plenty to do from here:
