A luxury one-bedroom apartment with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams that’s a fantastic countryside retreat for a couple. Plus, there’s stunning private parkland to explore just outside the door.
Engineer 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 very romantic with its vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, rolltop bath and west-facing aspect that affords views of the lawns and incredible sunsets. Meanwhile, the estate grounds are perfect for a quiet stroll and the nearby Michelin starred restaurant, Pentonbridge Inn is a great spot for a romantic meal.

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*

Exceptional Service

This spacious, first floor apartment is cosy and romantic with a vaulted ceiling and original wooden ceiling beams. It has a streamlined, modern style and is furnished to a very high standard. The open-plan living area comprises the sitting, dining and kitchen spaces, all under the original oak beams. There’s sofa seating and a wood burning stove to make things extra toasty on chilly evenings spent watching your favourite show on the 40-inch Smart TV. In the dining area there’s 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. There is a washer/dryer located in the cupboard in the bathroom.

The split-level design of the apartment means that a few steps separate the living area from the bedroom. The bedroom is a romantic space with an oak-beam ceiling and a king-size bed, while the spacious en-suite bathroom has a rolltop bath and a separate walk-in 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 a wing off the mansion house. 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.
