A beautiful Normal castle which stands proudly over the Eden and is surrounded by 27 acres of breath-taking parkland, Cumbria Castle and Cottages offers a wealth of history to its visitors as well as beautifully presented reception rooms and comfortable yet stately accommodation.
Step back in time as you enter the main castle which houses an array of reception rooms perfect for hosting formal events and informal gatherings. Seven reception rooms include a games room, the Medieval Kitchen, an informal space which offers soft seating and dining for up to 30, the Lower Hall with its incredible cast ceiling and the Great Hall, which is a beautiful wood panelled room with seating capacity of up to 100. This also has a medieval tavern attached.
A cosy morning room, smaller dining room and intimate library also offer comfortable and characterful spaces for gathering.
The property sleeps up to 40 (more on sofa beds) across 17 bedrooms which span the castle itself and cottages within the grounds. The 12 bedrooms situated in the castle offer a range of layouts, family rooms, twins, doubles and super-kings; four of the bedrooms boast intricately wood-carved, stunning four poster beds and five of the rooms have en-suites.
Three comfortable cottages make up the rest of the overnight accommodation available – each of which also have bathrooms and self-contained kitchen areas.
The grounds present 27 acres of beautifully maintained parkland to explore with a stretch of river for fishing expeditions; golfing and shooting can also be arranged, whilst the all-weather astro-turf, hot-tub and gym ensure plenty of active entertainment during your stay.
