This was our first visit to the Solway Firth and we really enjoyed it. The cottage was a great base for walks along the marshes, the Eden Estuary, Hadrians Wall and nearby Carlisle. The cottage was set in a courtyard with access to an attractive garden. It was formally a dairy which has been tastefully converted. It is comfortable, well-designed and well-equipped. The owners were very friendly and approachable and kept the accommodation scrupulously clean....

This cottage is well appointed and everything is quite new. Lovely comfortable bed and the home had everything we needed. Loved the heated floors! Nice table on the patio where we had lunch on a warm sunny day in September! Lovely gardens with a picnic table and a pond. Close to downtown Carlisle and on the path everyone walks for Hadrian's Wall where you can walk if you want. Our hosts met us and we're...

Robin Cottage is a characteristic yet modern cottage located 15 minutes from a massive ASDA supermarket and 30 minutes from Carlisle which is a lovely city offering cosy shops and lunchrooms. The cottage offers everything you need and is really clean and up-to-date. Thank you for a wonderful stay Raphaela and Steve, we enjoyed our evening tea with you!

'Robin' provides an ideal centre from which to explore the fascinating history of this area. It is equipped with all that you need for a holiday, including warmth if...

The cottage is located in the small hamlet of Bousted Hill, which is only a 15-minute drive from Carlisle. It is very small, so be prepared that there are no amenities in walking distance. But that was no problem for us. We loved the idyllic atmosphere in the sweet cottage which is newly renovated and very well equipped. The bathroom is very spacious, there is a big walk-in shower. The living-room has two big entrace...
