A trio of neighbouring, luxury apartments on a private country estate near Carlisle. Superb for a group of friends or a multi-generational holiday in the Cumbrian countryside, with plenty of privacy for individuals.
Talisman Quarters combines three apartments, Sir Walter Scott, Engineer and Salutation that are interlinked to form one luxurious space. It’s a fantastic solution for a family or group holiday where everyone likes to be able to retreat to their own space after spending the day exploring the Cumbrian countryside and Carlisle together. The apartments are part of a beautifully renovated collection of holiday properties housed in a wing that adjoins a stunning mansion of a private country estate. All three apartments are immaculately styled and feature original wooden ceiling beams and a cosy log burner, while the estate parkland is perfect for a relaxing stroll. When you fancy a treat, the local fine dining pub offers a superb tasting menu and, even better, there’s a complimentary transfer with every meal booked.
