“30th Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

people found this review helpful

Rented Geltsdale from 18th to 21st June 2016 for party of 7 to celebrate daughter's 30th birthday having lived for 5 very happy years in the beautiful village of Wetheral during the 1980s.

Rental area is the East Wing of a very large and extremely attractive and impressive country house set in several acres within the heart of the village and only 10 mins from Carlisle City Centre. Property is tastefully furnished and equiped to an extremely high standard with exquisite views over the properties extensive manicured gardens and the surrounding countryside.

Guests are provided with a free Visitors Membership Pass to the nearby Crown Hotel Spa and Leisure facilities (10 min walk) which are a welcome indoor option if weather is poor. Rental owners, David and Julia Hogarth are resident in the main property and are on hand and always happy to deal with any problems or requests.

Located just off Junction 43 of the M6 and 3 or 4 minutes from the A69 Hexham/Newcastle Road, the property is ideally situated for exploring the Lake District or Nothhumbria and Hadrian's Wall.

Within a few minutes walking distance visitors can access the Village Green with a shop, Post Office, Railway Station (Carlisle/Newcastle) and local Bus sevices. and a choice of 3 pubs - all serving a high standard of food.(Fantails Restaurant is a converted Farm property providing excellent food in a great environmeant - exposed timbers, stone walls, several working fireplaces, views over Village Green, and largely lit by candles).

An excellent quality property in a beautiful, relaxing rural environment - but with easy access to all the attractions and amenities of the Lakes District, Eden Valley and Northumbria.

We had a marvelous time and will definately use Geltsdale and othe Lakes Cottages properties again in the future.

Excellent accommodation with lovely views and regular visits from the deer. Ideal set up for 3 generations to enjoy a wedding reception at Warwick Hall. Recommend Wheatsheaf Inn in the village for good food and very friendly staff.

“High quality flat in a lovely location”

This is a fantastic property forming the upper East Wing of a large country house. The accommodation and fittings are very hight standard and it is both warm and comfortable and fully equipped. Our kids loved the pirate themed room. There are great views with lots of wildlife including deer and peasants. There is good wifi. Access to the leisure club in the village is a great bonus for swimming in the warm pool with the kids. We found numerous walks locally and most encountered a great county pub. The Wheatsheaf is by far the cosiest and with a good local atmosphere. Do walk over the Viaduct, to the caves and to Warick on Eden. We could not fault this property.

“Superbly appointed accommodation”
Reviewed 27 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

We travelled as extended family at Christmas. We were delighted by the quality accommodation at Geltsdale. Top notch quality throughout, from beds and linens to the fantastically stocked kitchen and utility room.
To our delight, the Christmas decorations were up and tastefully decorated. The views from the apartment were stunning and the presence of deer on Christmas morning was a delight.
The location of the property was great, close to amenities and easy travelling distance to Carlisle.
The only negative is that my elderly parents who suffer with arthritis struggled with the 2 flights of stone stairs to reach the front door.
