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 and were finalists in the Cumbria Tourism Awards 2016. 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.
Properties 29408, 26811 and 25859 can be booked together to accommodate up to 21 guests.

    Stopped with my girlfriend and 2 year old son in Hollybank Cottage for 4 nights and wish we`d booked for longer! The cottage had a very warm and homely feel especially in the evening with the log fire on. We found we had everything you would expect facilities wise and more. The roll top bath was a big hit with the girlfriend, and we enjoyed relaxing in the games room at night with drinks and TV when little one had gone to sleep. In the days we were here we visited nearby Cockermouth which is a 10/15 minute drive nice little town and also Keswick which was about 20 minutes drive, also Lake District wildlife park which we all enjoyed. Visited the Masons arms pub next door was very welcoming and had a real country feel to it with delicious home made food. All in all a fantastic time, only tiny problem we really had was phone signal in Gilcrux, but cottage has WI-FI so this wasn`t a major problem and once out in towns no problems. Julie was a great host, only on the other end of the phone if you needed to get in touch and made a point that she`s there anytime if we encountered any problems. Will be recommending to friends and family and visiting again.

    Fabulous cottage. Spotlessly clean, excellent facilities, comfy beds with lovely white cotton linen. Lots of great little touches that make the break a bit more special - can definitely recommend
