Great Days Out - Aira Force

Aira force

Tumbling torrents and paddling pools

Aira Force cascades over boulders and stepping stones, creating a series of natural pools - great for picnics and dangling toes!

Follow the woodland path upstream for great views across Ullswater. The waterfall itself is an amazing 65 foor drop - you can feel it on your face from the viewing platform.


Great Days Out - Birdoswald Roman Fort


One of the most beautifully sited of the Hadrian`s Wall Forts. Birdoswald has the longest continuous section of Hadrian`s Wal, as well as a museum of Roman artefacts (and a tea room). Open every day from April to end of October and then holidays and weekends.

Congratulations to our wedding couple!


It was our pleasure to accommodate our first bride and groom in The Old Bothy recently.

Congratulations and best wishes for your future life together - to Mike and Jen xx

Beautiful location, very central (we visited Penrith, Carlisle, Gretna Green and Keswick).
The property has been converted to a high standard and beds were comfortable.
Lots of nice touches such as jam, eggs and cake upon arrival and Joanne even put the log burner on for us before we arrived so that the cottage was warmed up for us.
There is a lot of information from tourist areas locally, which is extremely helpful if you are not familiar with the area.
Lovely relaxing break, hope to visit again soon.
