Nestled beside the walled garden of an historic mansion that’s set within 36 acres of private parkland in Cumbria, this charming stone cottage is cosy, elegant and packed with character.
Gardeners Cottage 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. You’ll be enchanted by the rustic charm of this two-bedroom cottage which boasts views onto the estate’s kitchen garden, exposed ceiling beams and a log-burning stove. The estate grounds are perfect for a family walk or a picnic, while the local Michelin starred restaurant, Pentonbridge Inn is a great place for friends to sample the highly-regarded tasting menu.

Why we love this

  • Set within a Grade II*-listed mansion estate in 36 acres of private parkland

  • Complimentary transfer when a meal is booked at the local fine dining pub*

This cosy, two-bedroom cottage is decorated in a modern style and is furnished to a very high standard. It’s ideal for a family or a group of friends.

On the ground floor there’s a long, open-plan living space with kitchen, dining and lounge spaces.

Original oak beams are a feature of the vaulted ceiling in this fantastic, light and airy space. At one end is the kitchen that features a breakfast bar with stools and is equipped with an electric oven and induction hob, a microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dishwasher and washer/dryer. In the middle is the dining area with a table and chairs. And, at the other end is the lounge which has sofa seating, a 40-inch Smart TV and a wood-burning stove. The sitting room and kitchen both benefit from windows that frame views of the estate’s lovingly restored walled garden.

There is also a ground-floor bedroom with a double bed and a family bathroom with a rolltop bath and a separate walk-in shower, a WC and a sink. On the first floor is the second bedroom that is also a double.

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. The cottage is located next to the walled garden, about a 2-minute walk from the main 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.

We plant a tree for every booking we make to help offset some of the carbon emissions generated by our stays.
