A modest holiday home in the quiet village of Gilcrux, the ideal touring base for discovering much of the North West.

Ideal touring location

Set in the small traditional village of Gilcrux, just outside the north west Lake District National Park, these three attractive holiday homes are well furnished and equipped in a contemporary style. Hollybank House (ref 29408) has an eleven-seater silver screen cinema room with projection and sound system adaptable to DVDs, Playstation and Xbox (not supplied). Hollybank Cottage (ref 26811) has the added bonus of a games room whilst Holly Cottage (ref 25859) provides compact holiday accommodation. Gilcrux is an ideal location for touring the highlights of Northern England. Both the western and northern lakes are close by with Bassenthwaite, 6 miles, and Buttermere, 12 miles. The traditional market town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth, and the bustling lakeside town of Keswick both have a wide selection of attractions, and are within a 20-minute drive. Birdwatching and coastal walking can be enjoyed along the Solway, 4 miles. The city of Carlisle, 15 miles, with castle and excellent museum is a good starting point for discovering the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall, with its interesting exhibition and the history of the Border Reivers from nearby Scotland. The Northumberland National Park, Eden Valley and the North Pennines are all within a scenic drive. Shops 3 miles, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    Holly Cottage is in a great area for seeing the north Lakes. Less than 15 minutes from the lovely town of Cockermouth where we were able to buy everything we needed to make our stay wonderful. Maryport and Keswick are also very close by. The village of Gilcrux itself is very nice, friendly locals and good food from the pub next door, the Masons Arms, and the lovely restaurant, The Barn just 100 yards away. The cottage is small and cozy and just where we needed to relax at the end of a busy day sightseeing. It has everything you could need in terms of equipment, and other than having to step into the bath for a shower is disabled friendly. I would recommend this little cottage to anyone looking for a break away from the crowds.
