From converted barns to courtyard cottages, you are spoilt for choice in the beautiful countryside around Carlisle, whether you stay in a farmhouse B&B or a self-catering cottage.
Set in peaceful, scenic locations, with all the sights and sounds of farmyard activity, you could easily imagine yourself in a different era, but with the added convenience of modern facilities to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. You may be invited to help out on the farm, collect eggs freshly laid that morning or feed the animals. Farmhouse B&Bs are known for huge breakfasts made with the freshest local ingredients that will keep you going for the rest of the day. Some also offer packed lunches and delicious evening meals.
Whatever your choice of accommodation and wherever you choose to stay, your visit to Carlisle's countryside is bound to be a memorable one.
