Orchard Cottage was originally an 18th century 'Solway Plain clay dabbin' farmer's cottage (named after the fruit trees that are still in the garden), now fully restored with many of its original features. It is a perfect cosy getaway for those wanting to explore the Lakes, Hadrian's Wall and other highlights of this beautiful county. It is a great base to sample the many delights Cumbria has to offer.


The cottage was built in the early 18th century from local clay with a crook frame, and large inglenook fireplace - many of these original features were retained when the Cottage was restored in the mid 1990s.

The dining room, bathroom, kitchen and sitting room with the bedroom beyond all lead off the wide entrance passage. All rooms are on the ground floor, with two shallow steps up to the front door, and one step down from the entrance passage into the kitchen. The original reed ceiling of the dining room was removed to give a spacious feel, and a clear view of one pair of the original crooks.

Tilgang for gjester

Orchard Cottage is exclusively for guests during their stay. There is a locked storeroom up the stairs from the sitting room, and there is no access to the mezzanine which is visible in the dining room.

Interaksjon med Gjester

Stuart and Peg live in Orchard House, which is across the courtyard from Orchard Cottage. They will be happy to give guests help and suggestions if needed.

Andre ting å merke seg

Please, Orchard Cottage is a no smoking property.
There is a large patio at the back of the Cottage for guests to enjoy, which runs onto the back garden shared with the owners Peg and Stuart and their boxer Lola. There are also three hens in residence this summer, who generally have the freedom of the garden but are happy to stay in their run when guests are about. Their fresh eggs are delicious which hopefully guests may enjoy.

Parking is available in the courtyard, which is shared with the owners, in the courtyard in front of the Cottage. To keep Lola and the hens safe, guests are asked to always keep the garden and drive gates closed.

Cyclists are most welcome and there is a locked garage available.
Peg and Stuart's interests include bell ringing, steam railways and vintage vehicles (particularly WWII military). Stuart is the curator of Cumbria's Museum of Military Life, now in a new location in Carlisle Castle.

A lovely cottage with everything you need. Home made cakes and fresh eggs from (the girls) Peg’s chickens added a lovely touch. The log burner was fantastic and the whole place was so cosy. Peg is a fantastic host and made us feel so welcome. We would highly recommend Orchard Cottage. Thank you Peg and Stuart.

A lovely home from home. Clean, warm and quiet with a friendly welcome. A perfect base for exploring or just a quick one night stop over.

Lovely cottage, very quiet and relaxing stay. Eggs from their own chickens provided a tasty breakfast as well as some lovely cake. All in all we would highly recommend and and are looking to return for a longer stay when we can.

This cottage is worth going out of your way for. We were charmed by every aspect of the house, location and attention by our host. The pictures and descriptions don't do it justice! Would love to return someday for a longer trip to the lakes.

Orchard Cottage has all the charming attributes of its 18 century roots, combined with all the modern facilities you could want. It is located in a picturesque setting, with all amenities available within a short drive and is ideally located for trips into the Lakes district with all its natural beauty, as well as to historical sites likes Hadrian's wall. Peg was a charming and attentive host without being intrusive. We would have loved to stay longer had it been possible.

Lovely cottage! Peg & Stuart great hosts. Had a nice relaxing weekend, spoilt with homebaked goodies and freshly laid eggs in the back garden! Can't fault it one bit, everything is taken care of!

Although I am an American citizen, I have lived in England since 1975. I came over to do archaeological volunteering for a summer after graduating from college, and never left! Marrying in the late '70s to a born and bred Yorkshireman, we have always lived in northern England, settling in Thursby, outside Carlisle, Cumbria and north of the Lake District in 1993. We love living in a village community and are both involved in various village activities and groups, including the Women's Institute to our annual Gala Show. Love to cook and enjoy a wide variety of films and theatre.
