    In an ideal spot for enjoying the northern Lake District, North Pennines and Eden Valley, 1 Gillbank Cottages is a well presented and comfortable end-terrace cottage, perfect for couples and families to spend time together. Decorated and furnished to a very good standard throughout, the cottage has the bonus of an enclosed garden area which comes complete with a summerhouse and is perfect for relaxing in whatever the weather.

    Arriving in the small Cumbrian village of Clifton, a sign announces ’where the last battle on English soil took place in 1745’, and tales of The Battle of Clifton, Bonnie Prince Charlie and The Duke Of Cumberland abound. The heritage and history of Clifton is evident all around you. Visit Clifton Hall where the 15th-century peel tower is the sole surviving part of the manor house, plundered just before the battle, or the village church, St Cuthberts, with its 12th-century nave.

    The Eden Valley is a little-known, but beautiful area of northern England, and 1 Gillbank Cottages places you perfectly to make the most of this unspoilt area. Dotted with villages, many with local fare found in wonderful farm and food shops and traditional welcoming village pubs, the Eden Valley is particularly favoured by walkers and cyclists for its well-known routes, offering outdoor enthusiasts of all abilities breathtaking scenery and a truly authentic taste of northern Cumbria.

    Just a couple of miles away, guests can enjoy a visit to Lowther Castle, a popular attraction for all ages and offering something for everyone, including delightful gardens, a fabulous children’s ’hidden garden’ and a tea room. A short drive into the Lowther Valley with Haweswater beyond, offers a more rugged and natural landscape, whilst closer to home, Ullswater with its pretty lakeside villages never fails to offer picture postcard views throughout the year. The popular Cumbrian market towns of Keswick and Penrith are both within easy reach, whilst the North Pennines’ market town of Alston, one of the highest in England, is just a 45-minute drive away on the coast to coast route from Yorkshire to the Cumbrian coastal town of St Bees.

    Guests looking to eat out can enjoy a visit to the award-winning local pub, a delightful, 18th-century, former coaching inn just a short stroll from the cottage. For fine dining, Cumbria does not disappoint, with four of the eight north west Michelin starred restaurants found in less than an hour’s drive away. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    The cottage was very comfortable and was very well equipped. A real home from home. One or or two minor details in that there are no coat hooks to hang outside jackets, wet or dry, anywhere in the lobby or kitchen. Having been to several holiday cottages over the years, most leave a little welcome pack of milk and bread, eggs, and even scones and cakes. There was nothing. It's a nice touch after a long journey, especially as no local shops. However, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would not stop us visiting again.

    Lovingly renovated cottage close to Ullswater and surrounding villages. 10 minutes from Pooley Bridge, Lowthet and Penrith, 25 from Haweswater, this is perfectly placed to explore the lakes. In 4 days as well as visiting the places named above, we're also went to Aira Force, Kirkstone Pass , Windermere and Ambleside. Cottage is gorgeous - homely and comfortable with everything you need for an enjoyable stay

    It was a nice cottage, like the well presented modern updates. Good off-street parking and garage for storing. Nice summerhouse and garden. Would have preferred a better packed kitchen with welcome pack including sugar, coffee, tea and milk. Otherwise everything was fine.
