The Park at Southwaite Carlisle

Situated about half an hour's drive from Blakebeck Farm our other holiday cottage The Park and Southwaite is a great base to explore the Lake District, Carliesle, Hadrian's Wall and the Eden Valley.  It is easily accessed from the M6.  The quiet back roads are excellent for cycling and there is fishing on the River Eden as well as golf nearby.  The cottage retains character throughout with original parquet floors and a wood burner. There is a large enclosed garden and orchard to the front of the house making it perfect for families and, with the owner's farmland behind the cottage has a relaxing rural feel despite being only 20 minutes by car from Penrith and 40 minutes from Carlisle.

The wonderful Northern Fells. featured in many of Wainwright’s walks including Blencathra, Carrock and High Pike are nearby and are perfect if you want to walk with truly stunning views but not have the crowds of the Southern Fells.

The Park at Southwaite sleeps 6 in three rooms.
