Holiday Cottages In Carlisle To Rent

Carlisle is a city in Cumbria; a stone’s throw from the North Pennines and just north of the Lake District. A place with rich history and plenty to do; Carlisle is a great city in which to enjoy a relaxing cottage holiday with friends or family.

History buffs will love Carlisle for the wealth of things to do. Visit Carlisle Castle, Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life, Hadrian's Wall or the Cathedral. Nature lovers will love the proximity to a National Park and an AONB, as well as Talkin Tarn Country Park on the outskirts of the city. Wherever your interests lie there is no shortage of things to do and places to see for a fun-filled staycation.
