A very warm welcome to Burrellhill, a stunning property in an unparalleled position in the Eden Valley. Sleeping up to 10 people in five spacious and beautifully appointed bedrooms as well as five bathrooms and benefitting from wonderful socialising spaces it really is an ideal cottage to gather family or friends for a luxurious break in this glorious area. The owners have created a wonderfully indulgent atmosphere with spacious rooms, elegant decor, comfortable furnishings and stylish use of the house's original features. Outside the property is no less impressive boasting extensive lawns, mature trees, a sunken pond and a vast deck for outdoor dining. Burellhill offers wide-open views of staggering grandeur with a panorama that takes in the Pennines, the Lakeland Fells and the Howgills. More impressive than that though is the feeling of absolute peace and seclusion in this rather magically indulgent hideaway.
Tucked down a lane between the villages of Kirkland and Skirwith, Burrellhill offers a fantastic array of walking and cycling right from the door. There's a network of paths and bridleways offering low level potters or fell top epics such as those of Cross Fell and Dufton Fell. For cyclists, Sustran's Pennine Cycleway runs past the end of the lane and the C2C route is close by too. Why not hop on your bike down the quiet roads to Culgaith and reward yourself with a piece of lovely cake at Mrs Miller's Tearooms in the village? For those wanting to really harness the tranquillity and beauty of this magnificent place why not pop right next door to Edensoaring, a gliding centre where you can get a bird's eye view of the landscape in one of their graceful aircraft. Alternatively just enjoy watching them silently soar above the surrounding countryside.
Exploring the wider area yields plenty of interest too. Railway enthusiasts are well served with the Carlisle to Settle Railway stopping at nearby Langwathby and history buffs can choose between Acorn Bank, Hutton in the Forest and Lowther Castle within easy distance. The beauty of the Lake District isn't too far away with picturesque Ullswater just a 20 minute drive and charming Alston, the highest market town in England just 15 miles into the Pennines.
