Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in England - Kirkland Hall Cottages

4 unique self catering cottages for 2-4-4-6 Or collectively sleeping 16 people

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.

The cottage also has a private garden to the side. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, 1 double and 1 twin and a bathroom with bath and shower. All the cottages were refurbished in 2010 with English Oak floors and new bathrooms and all have gas central heating as well as large wood-burning stoves/open fires.

Excellent location for walkers from all ages.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shearer's cottage for 7 nights and all i can say EXCELLENT , the cottage was ideal for walkers and situated in a quite location , all you could here at night were the sheep on the hills. Even the dog enjoyed herself. The cottage was fitted out to a high standard, home from home. Ian the owner popped around to say hi, he couldn't do enough to help us. we will definitely be back again. Thank you Ian for great relaxing week .....

Lovely peaceful weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Shearer's cottage for 2 nights over the weekend. We were very happy with the facilities available at the cottage, and had everything we needed to cook full breakfasts and dinner each night.

Although the cottage says there is wifi available, we could only really get signal in the entrance hall near the window. However we didn't find this to be too much of a problem and quite enjoyed the peace! There is a TV and a DVD player too.

The surroundings are beautiful and the gardens are lovely. The cottage is quite far out from local pubs and shops so be sure to stock up on food etc before you go.

The owners were great and any queries were answered promptly.

Overall, we couldn't have asked for more and will definitely be returning!

Peace and tranquility in the shadow of the fells

  • 3 of 5

A delightful and well-equipped cottage, with beautiful gardens, including a separate area for our dog. Great area for walking and visiting roman sites. Wildlife a-plenty- deer, rabbits, red squirrels, hares, buzzards and osprey. A lovely stay.

Een bijzonder aangename cottage, een schitterende omgeving.

Vooral voor wandelaars een must,

Wij hebben genoten.

Genieten van een mooie cottage en dito omgeving

  • 5 of 5

In de 2 weken dat we in de shearers cottage verbleven, hebben we erg genoten van deze cottage en omgeving. De cottage was goed en sfeervol ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. De tuin is goed verzorgd en onderhouden zodat je kunt genieten van de eekhoorns en de af en aan vliegende vogels in alle soorten en maten met op de achtergrond geluiden van de lammetjes en de schapen. En 's-nachts hoor je .......... helemaal niets. De eigenaar is betrouwbaar en doet er alles aan om je goed te informeren wat betreft de faciliteiten en wat er te doen is in de omgeving. Zoek je een rustieke omgeving om te ontstressen en van de natuur te genieten ben je hier zeker goed af. Houd rekening met eventuele boodschappen, aangezien de dichtstbijzijnde (grote) supermarkt zich in Penrith bevind wat zo'n 15 Mile (circa 2km) verderop ligt. Een erg goed restaurant was de "Shepperds Inn" in Langwathby. De meeste bezienswaardigheden zoals in Windmeere, Keswick, Kendal en Carlisle liggen op circa 45 tot 75 auto minuten. Een bezoekje aan de Honister Slate mines is zeker aan te raden, maar men moet op de weg erna toe wel rekening houden met smalle weggetjes, korte bochten en erg steile hellingen.

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.
