About the property

Kirkland Hall Cottages

Our self catering cottages have featured in Country Living Magazine's 'Great Escapes'. They are comfortable, well furnished and are maintained to the highest standards by the resident owners.

Each cottage was created from a range of ancient stone barns, a project which was voted 'the best barn conversion in the North of England'. All cottages have large wood burning stoves as well as gas central heating for that cosy night in by the fire.

The large informal gardens and pastures surrounding our holiday cottages are a haven for rabbits, badgers and red squirrels. They are host to dozens of species of migrant and resident birds including woodpeckers, tree creepers and nuthatches, whilst the Fells above us are home to skylarks, curlews, buzzards and peregrine falcons.

Charming cottage in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was smooth from booking to arrival to going home. Cottage was just as the photographs - very comfortable. Beautiful gardens to enjoy and even a red squirrel or two to watch.

Highly recommend the cottage and its location. Good pub in the next village (5miles or do) for dinner for lunch or dinner.

Already considering a return visit 🙂🙂

Beck Cottage, Kirkland Hall, Penrith

We stayed in Beck Cottage, a delightful one bedroom cottage in Kirkland, near Penrith, Cumbria. Everything was supplied and we were looked after extremely well. We will be happy to return to this cottage when we come back to the UK.

Sehr erholsame Urlaubswoche in Top-Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in der Woche sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Cottage ist traumhaft und mit Liebe zum Detail gestaltet (selbst ein frischer Blumenstrauß erfreute uns) . Wir wurden nach einer langen Anreise in einer behaglichen, warmen Atmosphäre empfangen. Toll fanden wir auch, dass wir uns Holz holen konnten, so dass wir jeden Abend am Kamin sitzen konnten. Die Ausstattung lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig.

The Lake District Fells and panoramic views of the Eden Valley are the backdrop to our exclusive self catering holiday cottages. The cottages nestle in an area designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' the foothills of the North Pennines, home to some of the rarest plants and wildlife in Britain.

Cumbria and the Lake District is renowned for it's wild and stunning landscapes. There are beautiful lakes like Ullswater, Buttermere and Coniston to the south, with the lush Eden Valley and the rolling North Pennines as its eastern boundary.

A network of footpaths starts right outside your holiday cottage door. You can wander just 100 yds up the track to experience the tranquillity and freedom of the open Cumbrian fells (hills). The more energetic can make for the top of Cross Fell for spectacular views of the Eden Valley and the Lake District fells.

If you want to get away from it all, explore some amazing landscapes, do a few walks, visit some traditional pubs or just relax in front of an open fire, our cottages are just what you need.

The cottages are the perfect base for walkers, cyclists and motorists, exploring not only Cumbria and the Lake District National Park, but also the Yorkshire Dales, Northumbria, County Durham and the Scottish Borders.
