Private parking for 2 cars. \n Both properties Biomass central heating underfloor on ground floor electricity bed linen towels and Wi-Fi included. Travel cot highchair and stairgate. Bike store. No smoking. Please note There is an unfenced pond 110 yards away. \u003e Nestled among 14-acres of mature woodland and gardens the Four Gables Estate is delightfully tucked away from the outside world. On the private driveway approach to the properties you pass the striking main house ‘Four Gables’ a Grade II listed property designed by the pre-Raphaelite architect Philip Webb for his friend George Howard the 9th Earl of Carlisle. The Old Laundry ref UKC1543 was formerly a wing of the main house and has been lovingly renovated. The original stone flag floor has been meticulously re-laid with the added benefit of underfloor heating and the cast iron range has been beautifully restored ensuring The Old Laundry is a cottage filled with character. All the contemporary luxuries you would expect are present too with high quality furnishings throughout. The private courtyard garden is a haven for those seeking a sun drenched quiet spot and the extensive gardens and woodland provide an achingly beautiful setting in which to relax and unwind.\nThe Old Coach House ref UKC1544 built in 1879 was once the coach house and stables to Four Gables. The large windows and doors in the open plan livingdining room were formerly the entryway and the original mounting block still stands outside doubling as the date stone. Whilst the renovations give this home a contemporary feel it still retains many original features from the coach house and stables. The living spaces have been carefully designed to complement the character of the property with a large open plan footprint providing a fantastic sociable space ideal for entertaining friends and family while on your holiday. Living space is certainly not something you will be short of in this house as in addition to the main area there is a snug with wood burner providing a cosy peaceful space ready to be enjoyed with a good book or if you are feeling more playful why not head for the games room with pool table and retro games console as well as a selection of toys and games suitable for younger children. The three downstairs bedrooms each have an en-suite and the two upstairs bedrooms share a Jack and Jill house bathroom. The private deck and garden is a haven for those seeking a quiet spot to relax and the extensive gardens and woodland provide an achingly beautiful setting in which to relax and unwind.\nIn the surrounding area there is an abundance of activities for all ages and abilities from shooting and fishing cycling and walking to city shopping and museum hopping. You can abandon the car during your stay as the handsome market town of Brampton is just a short walk away along a pavement making it easily accessible for prams and wheelchairs. Here you can find award winning butchers deli and quality restaurants. You can also see another example of Philip Webb’s work in the impressive St Martin’s Church in the centre of Brampton. The windows of the church were made in the William Morris workshop by another grandee of the Arts and Crafts movement Edwin Byrne-Jones. For history lovers it is just 9 miles to Carlisle the great border city which is home to the most besieged castle in the country an impressive cathedral and fantastic museum Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery. You can also follow in the footsteps of the Romans by walking Hadrian’s Wall. There is a pleasant walk of just a couple of miles to Lanercost Priory home to Augustinian Canons in the 1100s now ruined but just as beautiful. It also has a fabulous tea room to refresh yourself before you head back to the comfort of the cottages. Talkin Tarn 2 miles has a lovely off road walking route where you can stroll around the lake stopping off at the restaurantcafe for refreshments or why not try out some of the on water activities? For music lovers each June is the Stepping Stones Festival a weekend of good music in the beautiful grounds of Kirklinton Hall close by. A few weeks later Kirklinton Hall also plays host to the opera. Nearby the village of Castle Carrock holds Cumbria’s most friendly musical event Music on the Marr \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/134/{pixelwidth}/1346184.jpg UKC1543

    Very nice, cosy cottage. Spotlessly clean. Some nice antique touches in furniture otherwise very modern upmarket feel. Emma and Justine were there to greet us and Emma was very helpful in giving us good places to eat and to see. I would recommend this holiday cottage to anyone interested in visiting Cumbria.



    out of 10

    A very fine and stylish cottage. All the equipment you need, is there. Showering in a bathtub (master bedroom) is less convenient. Don't forget to meet Blaze, the cat!



    out of 10

    Beautifully restored and equipped the old laundry is a real gem. Very clean and comfortable with eveything you need. Close enough to walk into Brampton and great location to access the wonderful sites of Cumbria. Justin and Emma were lovely and could not do enough to help you. I would highly recommend staying at the old laundry and we hope to return next year.



    out of 10

    An excellent place to stay. Highly recommended
