Location description from owner

The England region

Only three miles away is the historic market town of Wigton. Lord Melvyn Bragg was a native of Wigton, and used the town (called Thurston in some of his writings) and the surrounding area as the setting for his novels, which include A Time to Dance.

Close by, are the beautiful Caldbeck fells, with their gentle grass covered peaks of High Pike and Carrock. The area has a lovely selection of pubs, tearooms and shops, which are well worth a visit. As well as Caldbeck there are many small countryside villages such as Ireby, Uldale and Hesket Newmarket that have lots to offer.

The area has something for everyone, including the market town of Keswick, Lakes Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite, the Solway Coast, which is well-known for its golf courses and the town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth, plus within driving distance is the cathedral city of Carlisle, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders. Red Hall Holiday Cottages are an ideal base for exploring the area.

The bustling market town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of Wordsworth, is just 20 minutes away and is renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Cockermouth also offers art galleries and the famous Wordsworth House.

The historic cathedral city of Carlisle is just a short drive away. Carlisle is a city steeped in history from the Roman frontier to the industrial age. Tullie House museum offers a fabulous insight into the history of the area and Carlisle Castle, home to the Normans when they invaded in 1066 is well worth a visit. It also offers a fantastic shopping experience, including the award winning `Lanes Shopping Centre`.

Keswick (18 miles away) has so much to offer, with its excellent choice of independent shops, bars and restaurants. There are a number of visitor attractions including Theatre by the Lake, Honister Slate Mine, Cumberland Pencil Museum and Mirehouse & Gardens. There really is no better location in the county when it comes to fell walking. You can enjoy a lake cruise or perhaps even hire a boat on Derwentwater. Whilst Whinlatter Forest is an ideal location for Mountain Biking trails and it also boasts GoApe!, the tree top adventure course. Keswick lies within the Northern Lakes, close to an array of fells including Skiddaw and Blencathra; and not forgetting the Lakes Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite, Crummock and Ullswater.

For nature lovers, there are over 30 nature reserves in Cumbria and the Lake District. The RSPB`s nearby Campfield Marsh is a wetlands paradise with panoramic views over the Solway Plain. The Watchtree Nature Reserve is just ten minutes drive away and has a range of habitats, and action plans for 32 species and habitats of conservation importance. Why not also visit the World famous Lake District Osprey Project viewpoints.
