Red Hall Farm Cottages

Bolton Low Houses 1.3 miles. Situated in peaceful and tranquil countryside between the Solway Plain and the Lake District National Park, these two semi-detached cottages are located on the owner's award-winning conservation and wildlife working dairy farm, near the village of Bolton Low Houses and the town of Wigton. These delightful Cumbrian cottages have been lovingly created from a 200-year old sandstone barn and both have been carefully converted using green design, and have many green credentials, including energy from the farm’s renewable energy source right down to the use of ecological paints. These two cottages near Wigton have been uniquely furnished and decorated, as well as retaining their character and charm to provide wonderful accommodation for couples, families and friends. Positioned in the farmyard, from where you can watch the cows and calves in the adjoining fields and meet the friendly farm dogs, each of these cottages near Wigton has patio areas with table and chairs, along with a shared, grassed area, which is perfect for picnics and little ones to play, plus guests have the opportunity to enjoy walks on the farmland to observe the many birds and animals. With easy access to the Lake District, just 8 miles away and the bustling town of Keswick, a 20-minute drive there are lots of things to see and do from these Bolton Low Houses cottages. Why not hire bikes and enjoy riding through the Whinlatter Forest Park or tackle Go Ape, the treetop adventure course? For a more peaceful day, a drive from Keswick beside Derwentwater through Borrowdale is breathtaking with many spectacular spots, from where you can enjoy a picnic along the lakeshore. Hadrian’s Wall and the historic county city of Carlisle, with its interesting museums and galleries, are within easy reach, while Silloth and the Solway coasts are fifteen minutes away.
