CARE OF THE COTTAGE

Elm Tree Cottage is OUR holiday home too and is looked after for us very well by a local resident.  So for the short while it is YOUR holiday home please take care of it and leave it as you would want to find it on your arrival.

PLACES TO VISIT

As we stated earlier, the location of the cottage could not be better.  The village is a friendly one and the surrounding area has a great deal to offer.  There are many pubs in the locality where good food can be found, but here are just a few to start you off:

The Black Swan – Culgaith
The Shepherds – Langwathby
The Hardwick Inn – Penruddock
The Shepherds Inn – Melmerby
The Royal Oak – Appleby

Outings from Elm Tree Cottage couldn’t be more varied.  The Lake District is right on the doorstep and after just a short journey north lies the city of Carlisle.  A little further on you will find the famous blacksmiths anvil at Gretna Green.  From there it is over the border into Scotland’s Southern Uplands of Dumfries and Galloway, the land of Robert Burns, and views across the Solway Firth.  Just to the east of Carlisle you will find the roman remains of Hadrians Wall, which marks the northern edge of the Roman occupation of Britain.

A short journey to the south east, from Culgaith, takes you to Kirkby Stephen and into the Yorkshire Dales.  For a real treat you can take a picturesque ride on the Settle – Carlisle railway, which passes through Culgaith, and you can catch the train at Appleby which is only 5 miles form Culgaith.

Even more variety can be found if you journey a little way down the M6 form Penrith to Lancaster, Morecambe Bay and even Blackpool is not far.

So much to see and do and not enough time in one visit, so COME AGAIN we’ll be glad to see you.

A well behaved dog would also be a welcomed guest at our holiday cottage
