I was greeted by the property owner Corrinne, a very friendly, lovely lady at the bottom of a fantastic driveway that instantly makes you feel like you have gone off the beaten track. I took my 3 year old away for a couple of nights with the intention of doing nothing but relax, instantly your curiosities are aroused by the surrounding area and before you know it you are off walking down public footpaths with a picnic or a walk around the small villages that surround the area, all within 3 miles. Carlisle is only a 10-15 minute drive up the A9 if you need to get supplies that you cant find in the local store. The apartment is fully loaded with a great bathroom, A full kitchen with all appliances one would find at home, 2 comfy recliner chairs set in front of a large flat screen TV with sky TV and a great wi-fi connection which my daughter managed to stream videos over no problem, You are certainly detached from the big city but not disconnected if you choose not to be . The garden, where I spent my evenings in front of the fire pit is shaded from the elements and secluded with a great view over great British farmland, and awash with colour from the fantastic array of plants, flowers and wildlife . My daughter was impressed by the Shed or nook which she treat as a playhouse for all of her toys. The pictures on here really can not allow you to appreciate how relaxing it is and I cant Thank Tim and Corrinne enough for giving me the opportunity to stay there.
