We are dog friendly! Ghyllie Cottage is a two bedroom, two bathroom cottage that is over 200 years old! Wetheral is just 3 miles from junction 42 on the M6 and the village has great amenities including a Village Shop and post office, Cafe, and a great pub just across the road! Wetheral Railway Station is a short walk from the cottage with regular trains to Carlisle and Newcastle. Easy access to Gretna Green, the Lake District, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
“Myself, my wife, and our dog stayed here twice last year and it was nice to return again for a one night stay en route to Scotland. Location for us, being in a beautiful little village but with easy access to/from the M6. As I said in my previous reviews the cottage is very stylish and elegant, spotlessly clean, with a great range of amenities. Paul and Illy are great hosts, highly communicative and helpful. We were able to take our dog on a long walk direct from the cottage, a beautiful walk along the riverside. Dinner in the pub across the road was as good as we remembered it from last year. Definitely recommend, either as an en route stay or as a base to explore the area.”
An ‘Amazing Spaces’ inspired shipping container conversion, entirely off grid, with wood burning stove, solar panels, sheep's wool insulation, beech wood reclaimed flooring and a separate composting toilet. In a peaceful secluded wildlife friendly garden, at the foot of the Pennine hills, the container is 5 minutes walk from Talkin village with a friendly pub serving food. An excellent base to explore Hadrian's Wall, the North Lakes and the Eden Valley.
“This is a stay in heaven. The containerhouse is really cosy and homy (with an easy woodstove and a tiny but practical cooker). Sue is definitely a superhost. It is no problem at all for going to the toilet or the shower in the house (very close to the container), also because it is a pleasure to walk in the beautiful garden. In the morning, you can watch several birds and animals eating while sitting on your bed. I absolutely loved it.”
Welcome to Carlisle. You couldn't really get much more central place than our house. This is a ground floor room, at the front of the property, ideally the room accommodates one guest, but it does have a high quality double bed. 2 guests are fine but you can only access the bed from one side.
“We had a great stay at Joanna's place. The room was clean and warm. We came by train for the weekend, so location wise it was perfect. Close to town and the castle. Joe was a great host too. He was quick to respond and always happy to help!”
