Spacious accommodation with the benefit of a games room and pleasant gardens. Location great for exploring north west Cumbria.

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.

    Our second visit and it did not disappoint. Cosy, clean and great for a big family group. The games room is excellent.

    We had a lovely time at the cottage - 4 adults, 5 children and a dog. Lots of space and good facilities.

    We used the cottage as a base for a weeks working in the local area, its the second time we've used the cottages, they are fantastic value, and can only assume that during the summers they are even more of an attraction, although the local amenities are not that many for ourselves the local restaurants where ample. I would not hesitate to use the cottages again,

    Wonderful place to stay with family and friends. Property is very spacious, comfortable and was perfect for our stay. Would definitely recommend. Lovely pub next door and bistro over the road, both really friendly and great food.

    Overall happy with the cottage. Location is slightly isolated from shops but it is in a nice little village. My only gripe is the cushions and carpets could do with cleaning as they smell a bit musky and there is damp/mould on the bathroom ceiling that needs to be attended to. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay plenty to do and see!

    A group of 7 friends spent a weekend away at Hollybank Cottage. Absolutely perfect accommodation with a great games room where a lot of time was spent due to the rain. Spacious rooms, and comfortable space. Only negative would be the spiders and the spider webs that was all over the ceiling, but apart from that it was perfect. Would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to friends.

    We stayed here as a big group and loved the cottage space and garden, it was very easy to go to the top tourist attractions and literally next door to the pub. Would have loved to stay for longer and hopefully will be back again. Thanks for allowing us to have a lovely group getaway!

    Had a fab stay at the cottage, location is remote but you know this before booking. The village is beautiful with pub next door. House was much bigger than we expected and the pool room is fab. Will definitely be back
