A luxury one-bedroom apartment tucked away under the eaves of the former Victorian stables set in stunning private parkland. This is the perfect, cosy and romantic hideaway for two.
Clock Tower is one of nine beautifully renovated apartments and cottages set within the 36-acre private estate of a Grade II*-listed mansion house in north Cumbria. Built on the site of a Roman fort and with a 16th-century tower house at its heart, plus 17th, 18th and 19th-century additions, the mansion is a spectacular building. This one-bedroom apartment is tucked under the eaves of the former Victorian stable yard and instantly feels secluded. It’s a quirky and romantic countryside retreat, ideal for hand-in-hand strolls through the estate's parkland and dinner at the local Michelin starred restaurant, Pentonbridge Inn

Why we love this

  • Set within a Grade II*-listed mansion estate in 36 acres of peaceful parkland
  • Enjoy walks beside the River Esk and trips to Carlisle and Scottish border towns
  • Complimentary transfer when a meal is booked at the local fine dining pub*

Set on the first floor of the converted stable block, this cosy apartment features original wooden ceiling beams and is decorated in a streamlined, modern style. The open-plan living area comprises the sitting, dining and kitchen spaces.

There are two sofas and a wood-burning stove to make things extra toasty on chilly evenings spent watching your favourite show on the Smart TV. There’s also a dining table and chairs, whilst the adjacent kitchen is equipped with everything you could need including an electric oven and induction hob, a microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The bedroom has a king-size bed and a spacious en-suite bathroom with a rolltop bath and a separate shower.

You’ll also have access to the estate’s 36 acres of grounds that include parkland and a walled garden. Meanwhile, benches are positioned in scenic spots so that you can enjoy reading a good book, chatting or daydreaming in peace.

A member of staff will greet you on arrival and show you into the property, which is located in relatively close proximity to other apartments and cottages in the stable complex. Alternatively, a self-check can be arranged if required. The estate grounds and walled garden are available to guests of all the apartments and cottages at the site.

The estate’s kitchen garden supplies fruit, vegetables and micro herbs to the nearby fine dining pub. Biomass heating is used across all the properties and in the glasshouses, while other crops that require warmth, such as tomatoes, aubergines and peppers, are grown in season. If you'd like to offset the carbon emissions from your trip, get in touch and we can arrange this for a small fee.
