Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Alston - 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.

Set in a wildlife garden with panoramic views across the Eden Valley

Stables Cottage, is one of four unique cottages nestling at the foot of Cross Fell, with panoramic views across the lush Eden Valley to the Lake District Fells beyond. The informal wildlife gardens surrounding the cottage 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 was sympathetically created from a range of ancient stone farm buildings retaining many original features such as beamed ceilings and exposed stonework. 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.

The double arched doorway and internal porch, lead into the open plan ground floor with a lounge area with a large wood-burning stove, a well equipped farmhouse kitchen and a dining area with French doors opening onto the extensive wildlife gardens. Upstairs the cottage has 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom and a bathroom with a bath & shower.

We very much enjoyed our week in this lovely cottage with the most beautiful garden. We were also lucky enough to be blessed with such wonderful weather. A very peaceful escape surrounded by beautiful countryside and wildlife.

Cottage calme et reposant

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et avons pu découvrir la région des lacs qui présentent des paysages très variés ainsi que les nombreux départs de sentiers. Nous avons apprécié les conseils éclairés du propriétaire concernant les lieux à découvrir, la gastronomie....et avons particulièrement apprécié le pub "Shepperd Inn" où les plats proposés étaient de très bonne qualité.

Le cottage correspondait totalement au descriptif, aux photos.. un seule petite remarque : des poêles un peu plus adaptées pour 4 personnes, et plat à gratin pour le four seraient les bien-venues, sinon rien à redire et recommanderions ce cottage.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Laurent et Anne-Marie: Nous sommes heureux que vous avez apprécié votre séjour avec nous, Cumbria est vraiment très beau. Nous vous remercions de votre suggestion sur le plat à gratin et casseroles. Nous gardons les pièces de rechange de tout ce que nous allons mettre un peu plus dans le chalet plus tard aujourd'hui. Merci encore Ian & Lesley

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.
